Addressing massive rallies in Barpeta, Mangaldoi and Nagaon in Assam, on the afternoon of 19th April, Shri Narendra Modi came down heavily upon the misgovernance of the State and the Central government, which only believed in spreading lies and misleading the Nation for their personal gains. Shri Modi condemned the divisive politics played by them and urged the people to elect a government that would work for the development of the State and the country.

Criticizing the State government for the lack of development in Assam, inspite of it being in power for nearly a decade, Shri Modi spoke of how the ‘Mother-Son’ duo in Delhi and the ‘Father-Son’ duo in Assam had only brought ruin to the people who had elected them. The Congress’ blatant lies were exposed by Shri Modi who spoke of how the Congress Vice President was making false claims of giving employment through NREGA. Shri Modi said that while crores had applied for jobs through NREGA, only few thousands were given jobs. Even in Assam, out of the one lakh families that applied for NREGA, only a few thousand people had been employed.

The Congress’ apathy towards the safety and security of its people, especially the women, was condemned by Shri Modi who spoke of how females from the North-East had been victims of heinous crimes in Delhi, and also in their state of Assam. Shri Modi also stated recent figures which showed that Assam had figured in the list of top three states with the most crimes on women. He spoke of how the Congress had misled the Nation by creating a Nirbhaya Fund of Rs. 1000 crore, but has not used a penny out of it till date.

Stating that the Congress’ only focus was on divisive and destructive politics, Shri Modi cited how the division of Telangana and Seemandhra had only brought further ruin and misery for the people of these states. Referring to a similar step taken by the Assam government, and in context of the violence witnessed in the State due to conflicts between Bodos and non-Bodos, Shri Modi said, Bodo and non-Bodo people are being divided by the Congress only for their own gains. They should take everyone together,” said Shri Modi.

Shri Modi spoke of how the Assam CM would spread one lie everyday, and stated how a TV channel recently had exposed the lack of basic amenities in the region. “News Time Assam actually came to Gujarat to verify the lies your CM said and they opened the eyes of the people of Assam,” said Shri Modi.

He also spoke on other pertinent issues of infiltration from the borders, the need to protect natural resources and the much-required focus on ensuring education and skill development to the youth.

Shri Modi urged the people to show their support for the BJP and make it victorious, and assured them that with development and good governance he will return the love of the people. He also extended greetings and conveyed good wishes on Rongali Bihu.

PM Narendra Modi took a comprehensive review to ensure adequate medical grade oxygen supply in the country. Inputs from ministries like Health, DPIIT, Steel, Road Transport, etc were also shared with the PM. PM stressed that it is important to ensure synergy across ministries & state governments.

PM Modi also took a detailed review of current situation of oxygen supply and projected use in the coming 15 days across 12 high burden states (Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan). An overview of district level situation in these states was presented to the PM.

PM was informed that the Centre and States are in regular contact and estimates for projected demand have been shared with states as on 20th April, 25th April & 30th April. Accordingly, 4,880 MT, 5,619 MT and 6,593 MT have been allocated to these 12 states for meeting their projected demand as on 20th April, 25th April and 30th April, respectively.

PM was briefed about production capacity in the country to meet the rising demand. PM suggested to increase oxygen production as per capacity of each plant. It was discussed that surplus stocks of oxygen supply in steel plants are being offered from medical use.

PM urged officials to ensure seamless and free movement of tankers carrying oxygen throughout the country. The Government has exempted all interstate movement of oxygen tankers from registration of permits to enable easier movement. PM was informed that States and transporters have been asked to ensure tankers move round the clock with drivers working in shifts to ensure faster turnaround and adequate capacity to meet the surge in demand. Cylinder filling plants will also be permitted 24 hour working with necessary safeguards. The Government is allowing Industrial cylinders to be used for medical oxygen after due purging. Similarly nitrogen and argon tankers will be automatically allowed to be converted to oxygen tankers to overcome the potential shortage of tankers.

Officers also briefed the PM about the efforts being made to import medical grade oxygen.
