Shri Narendra Modi attacks Congress Party for their failures in his address at BJP National Council Meet in New Delhi

Congress Party has always sacrificed the interests of the nation for the interests of one family. To take the country forward is not in the nature of the Congress, it is not in their blood: Shri Modi

Difference between the BJP and the Congress is that the BJP is a party with a mission whereas the Congress is a party of commission: CM

When we got freedom from the British we got Swarajya, when we will free ourselves from the Congress we will get Surajya: Shri Modi

BJP’s win in Gujarat is not a victory of one person but the victory of lakhs of Karyakartas, a victory of the BJP’s ideology, the faith of the people on the Party’s political culture, the guidance of senior leaders and the victory of the people: Shri Modi

There is a need to uproot the Congress and the best medicine to do so is the sweat of the BJP Karyakartas: Shri Modi

These days there is talk of economic reforms. I ask you- are the steps you are taking reforms? You call clearing your mistakes reforms? Asks Shri Modi

On the morning of Sunday 3rd March 2013 Shri Narendra Modi addressed the National Council Meet of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in New Delhi. Launching a scathing attack on the ruling Congress, Shri Modi affirmed that Congress Party has always sacrificed the interests of the nation for the interests of one family. “To take the country forward is not in the nature of the Congress, it is not in their blood,” stated the Chief Minister. He pointed that the difference between the BJP and the Congress is that the BJP is a party with a mission whereas the Congress is a party of commission. Shri Modi lauded the work of the various BJP Governments in his address and stated that the day is not far when other nations will learn from these Governments on tackling various issues related to governance.

He pointed out that to take on the determination to get rid of the Congress is the real Desh Bhakti today. “When we got freedom from the British we got Swarajya, when we will free ourselves from the Congress we will get Surajya,” Shri Modi said and urged the BJP leaders and Karyakartas to leave the National Council with a determination to help the people uproot the Congress.

Thanking BJP President Shri Rajnath Singh for the kind words he showered on Shri Modi yesterday during the National Council Meet, the Chief Minister said that the BJP’s win in Gujarat is not a victory of one person but the victory of lakhs of Karyakartas, a victory of the BJP’s ideology, the faith of the people on the Party’s political culture, the guidance of senior leaders and the victory of the people.

The Chief Minister observed that after a long time, the eyes of not only India but also the entire world are centered on the BJP National Council Meet. Attacking the Congress-led UPA Government for failure on various fronts Shri Modi wondered, “Is it a Government or not, we cannot realize…prices are rising and affecting the poor.” He shared that for the first three decades after Independence the Congress dominated politics from the Panchayat to the Parliament but the Congress lacked the right intentions as it sacrificed the interests of the nation for the interests of one family.

Giving an example Shri Modi pointed, “Once Sitaram Kesri was Congress President. We felt as if night-watchman was sitting. Because if a competent person comes, what happens to the Family? And I remember the time Sitaram Kesri was thrown out of office. Is such democracy seen anywhere? All they were looking for was the right time.” He went on to say, “Then when the time came to form the Government, they chose a PM who can do what the family wants, so another night-watchman. The nation never thought the night will be so long and there will be so much darkness!” Taking a dig at the NAC Shri Modi affirmed that the Government put 5-Star activism and those who are not grounded and are totally disconnected are taking decisions.

Shri Modi declared that those who are seen as a threat to the Family are finished politically. “If Pranab Mukherjee was PM, so much ruin would not happen. But then, if Pranab Da is successful what will happen to the family? So this culture of night-watchman.” Shri Modi further opined, “We have seen many PMs Congress Gotra and only one of non-Congress Gotra and that is Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Till Charan Singh, Chandrashekhar, VP Singh, IK Gujral were in Congress they had no chance of being PM. Their strength came outside the Congress.”

Terming the Congress as a termite, Shri Modi stressed on the need to uproot the Congress and said that the sweat of the BJP Karyakartas is the best medicine to do so. He recalled that when Atal ji was PM, the world had seen India as a leader of the 21st century but not question marks are put on us.

Talking about the good governance of the BJP ruled states Shri Modi said, “I want to tell political pundits- the nation has seen rule by Leftists, by Congress, by coalitions and they have seen the work of the BJP. Evaluate their tenure and in good governance we will come out shining. Whenever we have got a chance to serve, we have given something to the nation.”

Shri Modi went on to say, “Many people say- leave it nothing will happen. I want to place two examples. We had the same farms, the same land, the same water, the same farmers but still we had to import grains. It was one Lal Bahadur Shastri who said Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan and the farmers rose, determined to ensure that we will not get grains from outside!” He added, “When Atalji’s Government did the Nuclear Tests the world got angry, they put sanctions on us. In a matter of hours they tried to isolate India. That time the Congress said the tests were due to the scientists but despite the world anger we tested again two days later on May 13th! More strength was needed to test two days after the first tests were done and it shows what a leader can do.”

He affirmed that there is a need to create Asha (hope) and if there is hope there is a Vishwas (trust) created. At the same time, Shri Modi stressed on the need to dream big. “During Gujarat’s Golden Jubilee Year I urged my people to come a step forward and that way we will go 6 crore steps ahead. Let us move a step ahead, a step ahead for India” stated the Chief Minister. Shri Modi stressed on the need of Jan Bhagidari in his speech and pointed that all BJP Governments work on the model of Jan Bhagidari.

Puncturing the Congress’ claim of starting ‘reforms’ in the nation, Shri Modi declared, “These days there is talk of economic reforms. I ask the Government- are the steps you are taking reforms? You call clearing your mistakes reforms?” Taking a dig at the political pundits who defend every step of the Congress the Chief Minister said, “More than the Congress I feel sad for the political pundits who give certificates day and night to the Congress.”

Shri Modi gave instances of the development in Gujarat. He stated that when he became CM in 2001 the state had a revenue deficit of Rs. 6700 crore while today the state has a surplus of Rs. 400 crore. He gave insight into how Gujarat gave a different model to the running on PSUs- that of professionalism to take them ahead. Similarly, when he took charge as CM the power companies were making losses and all people demanded was enough electricity during the evening meals. But, without raising prices power companies in Gujarat are making profits because the Government stopped leakages.

He concluded his address remembering Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, Swami Vivekananda and said, “Mana Andhera Ghana Hai, Lekin Diya Jalana Kahan Mana Hai? Aiye yahan se chal pade aur kamal ke saath diya jalaye, vikas ki roshni failaye!” (Agreed there is immense darkness but what prevents us from lighting the lamp? Come, let us set forth from here and light the lamp with the Lotus, spreading the brightness of development!)

All senior BJP leaders including Shri LK Advani ji, BJP President Shri Rajnath Singh, former President Shri Nitin Gadkari, Leaders of Opposition in both Houses Smt. Sushma Swaraj and Shri Arun Jaitley, all Chief Ministers and senior leaders heard Shri Modi’s address.

Namaste!

It is a delight to address this young and energetic gathering. In front of me is a global family, with all the beautiful diversity of our planet.

The Global Citizen Movement uses music and creativity to bring the world together. Music, like sports, has an inherent ability to unite. The great Henry David Thoreau once said, and I quote: "When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am in-vulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest of times, and to the latest."

Music has a calming impact on our life. It calms the mind and the entire body. India is home to many musical traditions. In every state, in every region, there are many different styles of music. I invite you all to come to India and discover our musical vibrancy anddiversity.

Friends,

For almost two years now, humanity is battling a once in a lifetime global pandemic. Our shared experience of fighting the pandemic has taught us we are stronger and better when we are together. We saw glimpses of this collective spirit when our COVID-19 warriors, doctors, nurses, medical staff gave their best in fighting the pandemic. We saw this spirit in our scientists and innovators, who created new vaccines in record time. Generations will remember the manner in which human resilience prevailed over everything else.

Friends,

In addition to COVID, other challenges remain. Among the most persistent of the challenges is poverty. Poverty cannot be fought by making the poor more dependent on governments. Poverty can be fought when the poor start seeing governments as trusted partners. Trusted partners who will give them the enabling infrastructure to forever break the vicious circle of poverty.

Friends,

When power is used to empower the poor, they get the strength to fight poverty. And therefore, our efforts include banking the unbanked, providing social security coverage to millions, giving free and quality healthcare to 500 million Indians. It would make you happy that about 30 million houses have been built for the homeless in our cities and villages. A house is not only about shelter. A roof over the head gives people dignity. Another mass movement taking place in India is to providedrinking water connection to every household.The Government is spending over a trillion dollars for next-generation infrastructure.For several months last year and now, free food grains have been provided to 800 millions of our citizens.These, and several other efforts will give strength to the fight against poverty.

Friends,

The threat of climate change is looming large before us.The world will have to accept that the any change in the global environment first begins with the self. The simplest and most successful way to mitigate climate change is to lead lifestyles that are in harmony with nature.

The great Mahatma Gandhi is widely known for his thoughts on peace and non-violence. But, do you know that he is also among the greatest environmentalists of the world. He led a zero carbon footprints lifestyle. In whatever he did, he put the welfare of our planet above everything else.He highlighted the doctrine of trusteeship, where we all are trustees of the planet with the duty of caring for it.

Today, India is the only G-20 nation that is on track with its Paris commitments. India is also proud to have brought the world together under the banner of the International Solar Alliance and the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure.

Friends,

We believe in the development of India for the development of humankind.I want to conclude by quoting the Rig Veda, which is perhaps one of the world's oldest scriptures.Its verses are still the golden standard in nurturing global citizens.

The Rig Veda says:

संगच्छध्वंसंवदध्वंसंवोमनांसिजानताम्

देवाभागंयथापूर्वेसञ्जानानाउपासते||

समानोमन्त्रःसमितिःसमानीसमानंमनःसहचित्तमेषाम्।

समानंमन्त्रम्अभिमन्त्रयेवःसमानेनवोहविषाजुहोमि।।

समानीवआकूति: समानाहृदयानिव: |

समानमस्तुवोमनोयथाव: सुसहासति||

It means:

Let us move forward together, speaking in one voice;

Let our minds be in agreement and let us share what we have, like the Gods share with each other.

Let us have a shared purpose and shared minds. Let us pray for such unity.

Let us have shared intentions and aspirations that unify us all.

Friends,

what can be a better manifesto for a global citizen than this?May we keep working together

for a kind, just and inclusive planet.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Namaste.
