After Independence, Congress government ignored the needs of the poor for decades, the Congress never cared about the poor, did not even understand their problems: PM Modi
Post-Independence, Congress thought that it had the license to loot the country but after coming to government in 2014, Modi has cancelled the loot license of Congress: PM Modi

In his ongoing election campaigning spree, PM Modi today addressed a public meeting in Bastar, Chhattisgarh. Kickstarting his poll campaign in the state ahead of Lok Sabha election, the PM stated, “"Today, I am here not only to give an account of my 10 years of work but also to express my gratitude to all of you. You have not only formed a BJP government here but also strengthened the foundation of a ’Viksit Bharat’. You have placed your trust in Modi's guarantee. Today, the entire country is saying with that same confidence – ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar’!”

“For the poor, there is a very big witness of how BJP has worked, and that is Bastar. It was from Bastar division that I began the construction of the Ayushman Arogya Mandir. These Ayushman Arogya Mandirs have become primary centers for cheap treatment and inexpensive check-ups for the poor across the country. Thousands of Ayushman Arogya Mandirs have been opened here in the state too,” said the PM.

He added, “We have opened more than 11,000 Jan Aushadhi Centers, where medicines are provided with an 80 percent discount. This has saved the poor from spending ₹30,000 crore. This is why today the country's poor are saying – ‘Kharche Kam Karaye, Bachat Badhaye Baar Baar – Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar’.”

Lashing out at the corrupt opposition, PM Modi reiterated, “When Modi stopped the path of corrupt individuals, when he put an end to the earnings of middlemen, since then they have been at odds with Modi. Now, angered, they are threatening to break Modi's head with sticks. Modi is the son of the poor, he walks with his head held high... Modi is not afraid of their threats. You tell me, should those who have robbed the poor be punished or not?”

“When I am taking action against corruption, some people are upset and losing their senses. Modi’s mantra is ‘Bhrashtachar Hatao’. They say ‘Bhrashtachari Bachao’. No matter how many threats Modi receives, corrupt individuals will have to go to jail - this is Modi's guarantee,” he added.

Addressing a public rally in Bastar, PM Narendra Modi said, "After independence, Congress thought that it had the license to loot the country but after coming to government in 2014, Modi has cancelled the loot license of Congress and Modi was able to cancel the license because you gave Modi the license. Now their shop has been closed, will they abuse Modi or not? So who will protect me? These crores of my countrymen, my mothers and sisters, have become my Raksha Kavach today."

PM Modi announced that Ram Navami is approaching, and this time, Ayodhya will witness the realization of our dream – a magnificent temple instead of a tent for our Ram Lalla. However, the Congress and the INDI Alliance express discontent over the temple's construction. Furthermore, PM Modi remarked that the Congress's royal family declined the Ram temple consecration invitation, leading to the expulsion of critics within the party. This underscores the Congress's willingness to cross boundaries for appeasement. He further stated that the Congress manifesto carried the imprint of the Muslim League.

Emphasizing the tribal society has always been a priority for the BJP, PM Modi asserted, “The same tribal community that the Congress has historically mocked now sees one of its daughters as the President of the country. It was the BJP that appointed Chhattisgarh's first tribal Chief Minister. The BJP has established separate ministries and budgets for tribal welfare.”

“In the past 10 years, the budget for tribal welfare has increased fivefold. During the Congress government, there were barely a few Ekalavya residential schools nationwide. Today, Chhattisgarh alone has over 70 such schools. While the Congress government provided MSP for only 8-10 forest produce, now this number has reached around 100,” he added. PM Modi stated that ensuring a better life for every tribal family is his guarantee.

In his concluding remarks, PM Modi said, "I was not born to rest but to work. My goal is to develop the nation and make every family prosperous. Every vote cast for the lotus symbol will strengthen Modi's power." The PM stressed, "Therefore, in Bastar, on 19th April, be sure to bless Mahesh Kashyap Ji. In Kanker, on 26th April, ensure that Bhojraj Ji emerges victorious with maximum votes."

PM Modi addresses a public meeting in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

Weak Congress government used to plead around the world: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
Congress left the border areas of India to their fate: PM Modi in Shimla, HP

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a vibrant public meeting in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, invoking nostalgia and a forward-looking vision for Himachal Pradesh. The Prime Minister emphasized his longstanding connection with the state and its people, reiterating his commitment to their development and well-being.

“When the country didn't even know Modi, I was among you. Times have changed, but Modi has not changed. Modi's relationship with Himachal remains the same,” PM Modi remarked.

Highlighting his continuous engagement with the state, PM Modi sought the people’s blessings for a third term of the BJP government. He said, “Today, I have come to seek your blessings for the BJP government for the third time. I need your blessings to make India strong, to make India Viksit, and for a developed Himachal. Five phases of elections have already taken place in the country. A BJP-NDA government is assured. Now, Himachal will score a hat-trick with a 4-0 victory. Vote for those who will form the government. What is the point of wasting your vote? So, say with me, ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar.”

Addressing the strategic importance of Himachal Pradesh, a state bordering the frontier, PM Modi underscored the necessity of a robust government. “Himachal Pradesh is a state bordering the frontier. The people of Himachal understand the importance of a strong government. Modi will risk his life for you but will not let any harm come to you. The weak Congress government used to plead around the world. Modi says, why should India go to the world? India will fight its battles on its own.”

The Prime Minister also highlighted the infrastructural developments under his administration, contrasting them with the previous Congress regimes. “This is the same Congress that left the border areas of India to their fate. Modi has given many times more money than Congress. Today, hundreds of kilometers of new roads have been built along the border. Today, the lives of soldiers and our people living near the border have become easier.”

PM Modi highlighted the successful implementation of the One Rank One Pension scheme, a long-standing demand of military personnel fulfilled under his leadership. “Congress made military families yearn for One Rank One Pension for four decades. Congress used to say they would bring OROP by showing just 500 crores. This was a huge insult to our army because it was impossible to implement OROP with just 500 crores. It is Modi who has implemented OROP. Modi has given about 1.25 lakh crore rupees to former soldiers through OROP. That's why people say, Modi delivers what he guarantees.”

PM Modi also spoke about sensitive issues, accusing Congress and the INDI alliance of undermining the reservation system and conspiring against the Ram Temple. “I have come today to warn the people of Himachal about another conspiracy by Congress and the INDI alliance. These people want to completely abolish the reservation for SC-ST-OBC and give it to Muslims. Congress is also opposing the Ram temple. You people of Himachal tell me, did you feel good visiting Ram Lalla? But Congress cannot tolerate the Ram temple. Congress is conspiring to lock the Ram temple. Will you allow the Ram temple to be locked?”

Reaffirming his government's commitment to development, PM Modi listed the various initiatives taken for Himachal Pradesh, including the establishment of prestigious educational institutions and infrastructural projects. “No one thought that institutions like IIIT, IIM, and AIIMS could exist in Himachal. But with Modi, it is possible. Himachal has received a bulk drugs park and a medical device park. Himachal is among the first states in the country where the Vande Bharat train started.”

“Modi has guaranteed to make 3 crore sisters associated with self-help groups ‘Lakhpati Didis.’ Modi has also brought a big scheme to make your electricity bill zero. With the ‘PM Suryaghar Muft Bijli Yojana’ your bill will be zero, and you will also earn thousands of rupees. Just as Modi has fulfilled previous guarantees, Modi will fulfill these guarantees as well,” he added.
