In a first, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the 18th National e-Governance Conference via Twitter. Yes, via Twitter! The live Twitter address revolved around the Prime Minister’s vision of a Digital India and going to the next level as far as e-Governance and mobile governance is concerned. He also expressed hope that the conference would emerge as a focal point for innovation ideas that will help the Nation.

This was yet another innovative approach that has become characteristic of the Prime Minister. Such innovations were seen before, during and after the visit of the President of the United States too. Infact, the US President’s visit for the Republic Day started and culminated on the virtual world of twitter! It was on social media that the PM broke the news of the visit and it was on social media that he bid farewell.

Like his earlier foreign visits and visits by foreign leaders, the Prime Minister kept the nation updated about the visit through social media.

Prime Minister even took to twitter and replied back to @WhiteHouse.

This gesture of Shri Modi replying back was appreciated across social media.The farewell tweet to @WhiteHouse got incredible response on the twitter world. 684-Meanwhile…Narendra Modi’s social media outreach continues… (1) It did not stop there. Shri Narendra Modi joined SoundCloud just before the Republic Day. He shared special edition of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ between him and the US President Barack Obama via SoundCloud. Within a couple of days of becoming active on Sound Cloud, Shri Modi was followed by more than 1500 fans on SoundCloud, which is an impressive number. The number of plays is over 300,000!.

There were thousands of downloads and ‘Mann Ki Baat’ was played on by lakhs of people on SoundCloud alone. There were millions who listened to the special edition of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ on various online media. Shri Modi became the world's first leader to send out an audio-video tweet, when he shared an excerpt from his speech at the NCC parade. The excerpt from his NCC speech was also shared on Facebook as a native video, which became an instant hit.

@TwitterIndia too recognised the innovation done by Prime Minister, Shri Modi.

Enthusiasts of Wardha, Maharashtra welcome PM Modi at a public meeting

Today, as the nation takes decisive strides, Wardha's blessings are crucial: PM Modi at Wardha rally

Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended & addressed a public meeting in Wardha, Maharashtra. The PM was enamoured by the audience. The PM too showered his love and admiration on the crowd.

Initiating his virtuous address, the PM regarded Wardha as the land of a great confluence of spirituality and patriotism. PM Modi also reminded his audience that, “this election of 2024 is an election to fulfil the dream of a Viksit Bharat and a self-reliant India.” “Bapu envisioned this dream pre-independence. Today, as the nation takes decisive strides, Wardha's blessings are crucial. Your overwhelming presence, and the strong backing from Wardha and Amravati, signify that the aim of a developed Maharashtra and India is within reach. Maharashtra echoes today: 'Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar!'”, the PM added with confidence.

Confiding in the massive crowd, PM Modi shared that, “In a remarkable decade of progress, this humble servant has honoured the unspoken, lifting 250 million out of poverty, illuminating every village, providing water connections to 110 million, granting PM-Awas to 40 million impoverished families, and integrating over 500 million into the economy through banking. Each achievement is a testament to our collective dedication and determination towards a brighter, more inclusive future."

PM Modi did not hesitate to expose the realities of the opposition and remarked, “The thinking of Congress and Indi Alliance has always been anti-development and anti-farmer. That is why the condition of farmers in the country has remained so bad for decades.” “A stone laid in the family's name remained unfinished for generations, causing suffering in Vidarbha under Congress rule. Today, our government prioritizes Vidarbha's needs, with Eknath Shinde, Devendra Fadnavis, and Ajit Pawar committed to serving you all,” the PM further mentioned.

Sharing the plight of farmers from Wardha and Amravati, PM Modi observed that, “The irrigation crisis in Wardha and Amravati has long plagued local farmers, with past governments failing to address it sincerely. In 2014, 99 major irrigation projects nationwide, many in Maharashtra, were stalled for decades,” but he also gave hope that, “Under the NDA government, rapid progress is underway, notably with the imminent completion of the Lower Wardha and Lower Pedhi Irrigation Projects, promising to be a lifeline for farmers. Additionally, numerous smaller projects aim to boost irrigation across the region."

“We have separately identified the oranges of Amravati and turmeric of Wardha under ODOP so that the farmers here can benefit from it. For financial assistance to farmers, money from PM Kisan Samman Nidhi is also being sent directly into the accounts,” PM Modi shared.

In a sorry state of affairs, the PM launched his blistering attack against the opposition and said, “In contrast to BJP's development agenda, the INDI Alliance struggles with a lack of substantial issues, resorting to a politics of insults. Inviting leaders opposed to Sanatan principles to Maharashtra, they boycott events like the Ayodhya Ram temple inauguration, dismissing it as hypocrisy. However, their denial contradicts the nation's deep devotion on such occasions, revealing the true face of the INDI Alliance.”
“Eknath Shinde ji's government has resolved to redevelop ‘Lahanuji Maharaj Sansthan’ here. If these people become strong then they will oppose that also. Therefore, you have to account for the sins of Congress on this land of Shivaji Maharaj,” the PM warned.

"The Congress party admits defeat and resorts to threats of chaos post-elections. Their inclination towards constitutional suppression and emergency echoes past tactics. However, the nation desires a resolute, stable government. Voting for Congress or the INDI Alliance is futile.” Hence, PM Modi urged that “Maharashtra's votes must prioritize development. To all on April 26th, let's vote for progress."

In his concluding remarks, PM Modi encouraged the audience to ensure a resounding victory for the BJP by casting record-breaking votes. He expressed gratitude to every individual in the crowd and motivated them to spread his heartfelt regards to every doorstep in Maharashtra.
