"Shri Narendra Modi addresses rally in Sikar, Rajasthan"
"This is the land of the brave. I bow to all those Mothers whose children have laid down their lives for the nation: Shri Modi in Sikar"
"There is Mother of SIkar who is ready to sacrifice her son for Nation but there is a Mother in Delhi who will sacrifice nation for her son: Shri Modi"
"Caste politics will never help the nation: Shri Modi in Sikar"
"In MP, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan your dreams were shattered. Dalits, Minorities & Tribals are winning with BJP, please wake up to the reality: Shri Modi to Congress"
"Some people are misusing my name & spreading lies. My only relation is with the Lotus: Shri Modi "

Addressing a massive rally at Laxmangarh (Sikar) in Rajasthan, on the afternoon of 14th April, Shri Narendra Modi gave the clarion call of pulling the Nation out from the clutches of the Congress’ misgovernance and disruptive practices. He urged the people to support the BJP and ensure a bright future for the Nation.

Speaking on Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s birth anniversary, Shri Modi recalled his contribution in drafting the Constitution and his efforts at ensuring social inclusiveness of all irrespective of their class or creed. He attacked the Congress Vice President for his false claims of the Congress having drafted policies for people’s progress, while in reality it was Dr. Ambedkar who had initiated the policies for the betterment of the Nation and its people.

Shri Modi commended the Constitution framed by Dr. Ambedkar, and placing it in high regard, affirmed that it was the comprehensive Constitution that had enabled a tea seller like him to emerge as the Prime Ministerial candidate.

Shri Modi applauded the valour shown by mothers in Sikar who were ready to sacrifice the lives of their sons for the sake of the country, and stated how, on the other hand, the Mother in Delhi was ready to sacrifice the Nation for the sake of her Son. He said that the Nation had been ruined under the Congress, and now the time had come to hold them accountable and punish them for their doings.

Affirming the wipe out of the Congress in 2014 Elections, Shri Modi stated that similar to the states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, the Congress and its allies will get washed away when the election results will be declared on 16th May. “Even before the elections were announced the results are loud and clear. There will be a change in Government, just like in Rajasthan. In MP, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan your dreams were shattered. Dalits, Minorities & Tribals are winning with BJP, so please wake up to the reality,” said Shri Modi. He asserted that the divisive policies and votebank politics of the Congress will not be tolerated any more, and voiced that the Nation now needs unity, peace and progress.

Shri Modi asserted the BJP’s focus on ensuring the development of all sections of the society, from the farmers to the underprivileged, and spoke of how a standard Minimum Support Price with due margin for profit, detailed in the BJP’s Manifesto, would benefit the farmers tremendously. He also stated how the initiative of dividing the Food Corporation of India into 3 divisions – 1. Buying the produce 2. Storage 3. Distribution – cited in the BJP’s Manifesto, will ensure that the produce does not get rotten and the farmer is able to get adequate returns for his efforts.

Shri Modi acknowledged the support shown by the people and thanked them for reinforcing their faith in the BJP government. He appealed to them to vote for the BJP and ensure the formation of a strong and stable government in Delhi.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
