Upon completion of four years of the NDA Government today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a huge public meeting in Odisha’s Cuttack. Paying tributes to Lord Jagannanth, PM Modi said that Cuttack was the land associated with great freedom fighters like Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

Prime Minister Modi said that it was the affection of people that energized him to work dedicatedly towards welfare of all. He stated that in the last four years, an environment of hope and trust was developed among people and the nation was moving from anarchy to good governance, from black money (Kaala Dhan) to Jan Dhan.

Terming that betterment of the poor was the Government’s biggest priority, the Prime Minister said, “The President, Vice President and the Pradhan Sevak have had humble beginnings and that is why the NDA Government is committed to serving the people of the country.”


He remarked that the BJP had emerged as the single largest party having its presence from Panchayat to Parliament. With Saaf Niyat and Sahi Vikas, he said that the work being done by the NDA Government was enhancing India’s stand on the world stage and the country was being applauded world over.

Shri Modi said that in the last four years, the country had moved from being in a state of ‘confusion’ towards ‘commitment’.  In this context, he shed light on several decisions of the government like surgical strikes across the LoC, resolution of the One Rank One Pension for ex-servicemen, steps to fight corruption and enhance transparency in the governance system.

Taking a dig at the Congress and other non-NDA ally parties, he said that steps undertaken by the NDA Government at Centre to curb corruption and formalise the country’s economy in the last 48 months had forced them to come together as they could not rid the country of corruption and cobweb of tax structure in 48 years. “What the Congress gave to the country in the last 48 years is corruption and scams. That is why it is necessary to compare NDA’s 48 months to Congress’ 48 years of misrule”, PM Modi added further.

Shri Modi assailed the Congress for only thinking about its welfare and not the people of the country. He added, “For ten years, the country had a Prime Minister who was commanded by a remote control, ministers were directed through emails.”

For as long as seventy years, the PM exclaimed that steps or initiatives which would have empowered the poor were reserved only for those who were well-off. “Be it sanitation measures or opening up bank accounts, the poor and marginalised people never benefitted in the Congress’ seventy years”, the PM said. In this context, he highlighted the matter of Paradip Oil Refinery in Odisha, which was envisioned under Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s leadership, but the subsequent Congress government stalled the project. “It was in 2014, that the NDA Government at Centre initiated work on the project”, he said.

Prime Minister Modi expounded on the work being done by the NDA Government at Centre in ensuring electricity in all 18,500 odd villages, construction of toilets, proving cooking gas connections under Ujjwala Yojana, repealing over 1400 laws, development of the ports, implementation of the GST and launch of the first phase of Ayushman Bharat Yojana. He said that rapid strides were being made by the Centre to enhance the lives of poor and middle class. “For us good politics means development and good governance”, he said.

Shri Modi said that the Government’s stress was on creating next generation infrastructure and hence, it was focussing on initiatives like Bharatmala and Sagarmala. He also highlighted Government’s commitment to develop smart cities, better connectivity through highways, railways, subways, waterways and i-ways. The PM also spoke at length about the International Solar Alliance and how through the alliance India was leading the entire world in mitigating climate change. “From North-East to Jammu and Kashmir, our Government is devoted to build Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat”, he said.

PM Modi alleged that the Odisha government misled farmers of the state on Mahanadi waters. He said that the BJP was committed to address their problems and efforts were being undertaken to improve irrigation facilities.

Shri Modi stated that with ‘Saaf Nityat’ and ‘Sahi Vikas’, the country would continue to march on the path of development.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public gathering in Krishnanagar, West Bengal, where he paid homage to Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the eminent preacher of Bhagwan Shri Krishna, and extended his greetings to the revered mothers, sisters, and daughters present in huge numbers.

During his address, PM Modi highlighted the significant developmental projects initiated in West Bengal in the past two days, amounting to over Rs. 22,000 crores. These projects aim to bolster the state's connectivity, electricity, petroleum infrastructure, and port facilities, fostering increased investment and job creation opportunities for the youth, said PM Modi.

However, PM Modi expressed concern over the functioning of the TMC-led state government, citing disappointment among the people of West Bengal due to oppression and betrayal of trust. He criticized the TMC's governance, associating it with oppression, autocracy, corruption, and nepotism, alleging its reluctance to uplift the state's populace.

PM Modi underscored the establishment of the first AIIMS in West Bengal as an example of the state government's obstructionism, despite his assurance to fulfill the commitment. He lamented the hurdles faced in setting up the Kalyani AIIMS and accused the TMC government of impeding environmental permissions for the hospital's establishment. He said, "The TMC government is creating obstacles related to environmental permissions for such a large hospital. If they don't get a commission, the TMC government stops all permissions."

Furthermore, PM Modi reiterated the BJP government's commitment to healthcare improvement in West Bengal, highlighting the doubling of government medical colleges in the state in the past decade and said, "The BJP is committed to improving healthcare facilities in West Bengal for the future of the youth. That's why we are continuously working to improve healthcare services here. Since the inception of medical colleges in the country, until 2014, there were only 14 government medical colleges in West Bengal. In the last 10 years, government medical colleges have doubled to 26."

Regarding the jute industry, PM Modi emphasized the BJP government's efforts to revive jute cultivation and industry, including the mandatory use of jute bags for packaging essential commodities. He praised the significant orders received by jute mills and the consistent increase in MSP for jute. He said, "The Union government of the BJP has taken continuous significant decisions for both jute cultivation and industry. This BJP government is the one that has made it mandatory to use jute bags for packaging wheat, rice, and sugar. As a result, jute mills here receive orders worth several thousand crores every year. The BJP government is also consistently increasing the MSP for jute."

PM Modi also criticized the TMC government's failure to implement central women's safety and empowerment schemes, citing examples such as the 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' campaign and the 'Ujjwala' scheme.

"TMC in West Bengal has taken the votes of our mothers and sisters by chanting slogans of mother, land, and people. But today, everyone, including mothers, land, and people, is suffering under the misrule of TMC. The protesting sisters continued to demand justice, but the TMC government did not listen to them. The situation in Bengal is such that here, it's not the police but the criminals who decide when to surrender and when to be arrested," said the Prime Minister.

"The state government did not even want the perpetrators of hooliganism to ever be arrested. But then, the women of Bengal, standing tall as Maa Durga, and every BJP worker standing with them, made this state government bend," he added.

Highlighting the misrule and misgovernance of TMC in Bengal, PM Modi said, "TMC is constantly trying to put its sticker on the central government's schemes and turn every scheme into a scam. The BJP-led Union government provides free rations to 6 crore people in West Bengal. This scheme will continue for the next 5 years, this is Modi's guarantee. But even on this scheme, people from TMC are putting their stickers on. These people are not even hesitating to loot the rations of the poor."

In concluding remarks, PM Modi urged the youth to support the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, emphasizing the party's vision for national development and prosperity, echoing the slogan "Bengal's development will lead to the country's development." He called upon party workers to convey his regards to every village in West Bengal.
