"The theme of the G-20 summit under India's presidency, 'One Earth, One Family, One Future,' exemplifies our shared human values and aspirations," Prime Minister Modi stated, underscoring the importance of collective efforts in global initiatives such as 'One sun, one world, one grid' and 'One world, one health.' "In such national and global campaigns, the more we involve our youth, the more they will stay away from the wrong path," Prime Minister Modi said.

PM Modi addresses a public meeting in Sagar, Madhya Pradesh
April 24, 2024
Development happens when there are the right policies and a clear vision: PM Modi in Sagar
Whether it's the country or Madhya Pradesh, development came when Congress left and BJP came: PM Modi in Sagar
Congress wants to snatch your property and impose inheritance tax: PM Modi in Sagar

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a massive public gathering today in Sagar, Madhya Pradesh, reaffirming the strong support of the people for the BJP government and emphasizing the importance of stable governance for development.

Addressing the enthusiastic crowd, PM Modi said, "Today, there is an ocean of public support on the land of Sagar. Last time, you gave the BJP a victory here with record votes. Sagar has once again made up its mind, Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar."

Highlighting the transformative development under the BJP government, PM Modi stated, "The people of Madhya Pradesh and Sagar know very well how important it is to have a stable and strong government for the development of the country. Development happens when there are the right policies and a clear vision. Therefore, whether it's the country or Madhya Pradesh, development came when Congress left and BJP came."

PM Modi praised the progress of Madhya Pradesh under the BJP government, citing projects such as the Ken-Betwa Link Project, Banda Major Irrigation Project, and the development of a comprehensive network of highways including expressways like Narmada Expressway, Vindhya Expressway, and others.

"The central government has also given Madhya Pradesh the gift of more than 350 rail projects. Medical colleges and hospitals have also been built in Sagar," he added.

PM Modi assured the crowd of continued support, saying, "I guarantee my mothers and sisters that there will be no need to worry about ration for the next 5 years. We are working to bring gas, electricity, water, and toilet facilities to every household to alleviate the troubles of mothers and sisters."

Addressing the reservation issue, PM Modi criticized the Congress party's agenda, stating, "Today, a truth of the Congress has come before the country that everyone is stunned to know. Our Constitution prohibits giving reservations based on religion. Congress is preparing to cut the quota of ST-SC-OBC by 15 % and then apply reservations based on religion. Last time, when there was a Congress government in Karnataka, it gave reservations based on religion. When the BJP government came, it revoked this decision. Now once again, Congress has given reservations based on religion in Karnataka.”

Highlighting the intentions of Congress through their manifesto, PM Modi said, “Congress is not stopping at just hurting you. Congress also wants to snatch your property. Even if you have two vehicles, one house in the city, and one in the village, you will still come under Congress's radar. They want to snatch all this from you and give it to their vote bank.”

PM Modi warned against Congress's approach towards inheritance tax, saying, "Congress also wants to impose inheritance tax on the property you want to leave for your children. And imagine, Congress has cut so much from India's social values, the sentiments of Indian society."

“The Congress party hates the Constitution of the country. They hate the identity of India. That's why they are working on every project that weakens the country, weakens the country's fabric. They come up with new strategies to divide society. Our faith has kept us united for centuries. The Congress party attacks that faith,” he added.
