Congress leaders are filmy, their dialogues are also filmy. When the characters are filmy then the scene will also be filmy: PM Modi takes a dig at Congress leaders in Ratlam

Amidst his ongoing election campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a huge public meeting in Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh. Witnessing the massive crowd, PM Modi remarked, “The tremendous wave of support for the BJP in Madhya Pradesh is truly remarkable. It's the BJP that has propelled Madhya Pradesh to great heights in agriculture, enhanced its road and rail infrastructure, fostered industrial growth, and transformed it into a center of modern education. This unwavering faith of the people in the BJP is a testament to our achievements."

“The sentiment prevailing today is that Madhya Pradesh is on the mind of Modi, and Modi is on the mind of Madhya Pradesh. Therefore, the MP is saying- ‘Phir Ek Baar, Bhajpa Sarkar’,” the PM added.

PM Modi criticized the Congress, stating that they rely on false promises, be it in the country or Madhya Pradesh, lacking a concrete development plan. He characterized Congress leaders as filmy and their announcements as filmy. He said, “And when the characters are filmy, then the scene will also be filmy. Here, a competition of tearing clothes is going on between two Congress leaders. And right now, this is the trailer of the film. After the victory of BJP on 3rd December, the real picture of Congress will be visible here; the real conflict of Congress will take place.”

PM Modi accused the Congress of being associated with massive scams, criminal dominance, the mistreatment of the poor, oppression of Dalits, backward classes, and tribals in the state. He claimed that Congress is incapable of truly representing Madhya Pradesh and is primarily focused on promoting dynastic politics.

Talking about the government’s initiatives, PM Modi asserted, “It is the BJP which planned to give free ration to the poor even during the Corona crisis. Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, free ration has been given to the poor in the country for the last three years. We have taken another decision related to free ration. It has been decided that the scheme providing free ration to 80 crore poor people will now be extended for the next 5 years.”

Emphasizing the schemes benefiting women in the state, PM Modi mentioned, "The Ujjwala Yojana has reduced the cost of gas cylinders by Rs 500 for its beneficiaries. Through the Har Ghar Jal Abhiyan, countless families in Madhya Pradesh now have access to tap water. Women have had bank accounts opened for them, and arrangements were made to ensure that every benefit reached those bank accounts. Ladli Behan Yojana and Ladli Lakshmi Yojana are also being praised all over the country today.”

In his address, PM Modi highlighted the achievements of the Modi government in the context of tribals. He mentioned that it was the BJP that acknowledged and honoured the contribution of tribal society to India's struggle for independence. The BJP government designated November 15, the birthdate of Bhagwan Birsa Munda, as Janjatiya Gaurav Divas.

“Recently, we celebrated the 500th birth anniversary of Rani Durgavati with great pomp. I have had the opportunity to lay the foundation stone of his grand memorial, a memorial of Gond culture, in Jabalpur. Today, India's most modern railway station is named after Rani Kamlapati,” he said.

Accusing the Congress party, PM Modi said, “There is no one in the country who Congress has never cheated. In every election, Congress brings a bunch of loan waivers. They did the same last time also. But the history of Congress is that it is not the farmers who benefit from Congress' loan waiver but only their people.”

He further said, “Under PM Kisan Samman Nidhi, Rs 2,60,000 crores have been sent directly to the bank accounts of farmers across the country. The BJP government ensures farmers do not have to buy expensive urea and fertilizers. The bag of urea, which costs Rs 3,000 in foreign countries, today is available to Indian farmers for less than Rs 300. The BJP government is spending lakhs of crores of rupees on this also.”

PM Modi emphasized that the trust in the BJP is a result of its commitment to work in the best interest of all sections of society, every region, and every family. He declared that what he witnessed in Ratlam signifies a massive victory for the BJP.

Srinagar Viksit Bharat Ambassadors Unite for 'Viksit Bharat, Viksit Kashmir'
April 20, 2024

Srinagar hosted a momentous gathering under the banner of the Viksit Bharat Ambassador or VBA 2024. Held at the prestigious Radisson Collection, the event served as a unique platform, bringing together diverse voices and perspectives to foster the nation's collective advancement towards development.

Graced by the esteemed presence of Union Minister Shri Hardeep Singh Puri as the Chief Guest, the event saw the attendance of over 400 distinguished members of society, representing influencers, industry stalwarts, environmentalists, and young minds, including first-time voters. Presidents of Chambers of Commerce, Federation of Kashmir Industrial Corporation, House Boat Owners Association, and members of the writers' association were also present.

The VBA 2024 meetup began with an interesting panel discussion on Viksit Kashmir, which focused on the symbiotic relationship between industry growth and sustainable development. This was followed by an interactive session by Minister Puri, who engaged with the attendees through an engaging presentation. Another event highlight was the live doodle capture by a local artist of the discussions.

Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri discussed how India has changed in the last decade. He said India is on track to become one of the world's top three economies, surpassing Germany and Japan soon.

 

"The country is set to surpass Germany and Japan and will become the world's third-largest economy by 2027-28," he said.

 

According to official estimates, India's economy is projected to reach a remarkable $40 trillion by 2040. Presently, the economy stands at approximately $3.5 trillion.

He also stressed that India's progress is incomplete without a developed Kashmir.

 

"Bharat cannot be Viksit without a Viksit Kashmir," he said.

Hardeep Puri reflected on India's economic journey, noting that in the 1700s, India contributed a significant 25% to the global GDP. However, as experts documented, this figure gradually dwindled to a mere 2% by 1947.

 

He highlighted how India, once renowned as the 'sone ki chidiya' (golden bird), lost its economic strength during British colonial rule and continued to struggle even after gaining independence, remaining categorized under the 'Fragile Five' until 2014.

 

Puri emphasized that the true shift in India's economic trajectory commenced under the Modi government. Over the past decade, the nation has ascended from among the top 11 economies to ranking among the top 5 globally.

The Union Minister also encouraged everyone to participate in the Viksit Bharat 2047 mission, emphasizing that achieving this dream requires the active engagement and coordination of all "ambassadors" of change.

He highlighted India's rapid progress in metro network development, stating that the operational metro network spans approximately 950 kilometres. He expressed confidence that within the next 2-3 years, India's metro network will expand to become the second-largest globally, surpassing that of the United States.

 

Regarding Jammu and Kashmir, he mentioned that through the Smart project, over 68 projects totalling Rs 6,800 crores were conceptualized, with Rs 3,200 crores worth of projects already completed.

 

He further stated that Jammu and Kashmir possesses more potential than Switzerland but has faced setbacks due to man-made crises. He emphasized the Modi government's dedication to the comprehensive development of the region.

The minister highlighted a significant government policy shift from women-centred to women-led development. Drawing from his extensive experience as a diplomat spanning 39 years, he shared that when a country transitions to women-led development, there is typically a substantial GDP increase of 20-30%. 

He mentioned that the government is actively pursuing this objective, citing examples such as the Awas Yojana, where houses are registered in the names of women household members, and the implementation of 33% reservation for women in elected bodies as part of this broader mission. 

He also provided insight into the transformative impact of the Modi government's welfare policies on people's lives. He highlighted the Ujjwala Yojana, noting that 32 crore individuals have received LPG cylinders, a significant increase from the 14 crore connections in 2014. Additionally, he mentioned the expansion of the gas pipeline network, which has grown from 14,000 km to over 20,000 km over the past ten years.
