Watch : Shri Narendra Modi addressing a Public Meeting in Pathankot, Punjab

On the afternoon of 25th April, Shri Narendra Modi addressed rallies at Pathankot, Hoshiarpur, Bathinda and Amritsar in Punjab and appealed to the people to support the BJP-Shiromani Akali Dal alliance for the State’s better future and the Nation’s progress. Shri Modi spoke of local issues, from farmers’ concerns to narco-terrorism, and affirmed that under the BJP-SAD alliance the State will witness renewed growth and better living standards.

Addressing a massive rally in Amritsar Shri Narendra Modi made a strong pitch to the voters to elect the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Shri Arun Jaitley. He described Jaitley ji as a gem of a person in public life who brings intellect, honesty and a vision for development. He recalled his personal friendship with Jaitley ji and even recalled Jaitley ji's contribution to Gujarat as a Rajya Sabha MP. Shri Modi talked about promoting tourism in Amritsar and a concept of Yatri Trains that will bring devotees from all over to this holy land. Shri Daljeet Singh Kohli, brother of PM Dr. Manmohan Sing joined the BJP in Amritsar. Shri Modi said that Shri Kohli's presence will add strength to the BJP.

Shri Modi stated how India had never witnessed a government as corrupt and ineffective as the current Central government. From their miserable failure in retaliating to the killings of Indian soldiers to their dismal policies for farmers’ welfare, Shri Modi highlighted the Congress’ doings which reflected that their mantra was not of ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’, but rather of ‘Mar Jawan, Mar Kisan.’ He emphasized on the need to bring in technological upgradations in agriculture so as to equip the farmers for better productivity.

Speaking on how the concern of ‘narco terrorism’ and fake currency had been afflicting the people and the economy, Shri Modi called for the need to secure our borders and stop such misdoings. He also spoke of the Congress’ one-point programme which only focused on stopping Shri Modi from becoming the PM, rather than addressing issues of national importance.

Speaking further on the Central government’s unconcern for the people, Shri Modi said that this was clearly reflected in the fact that inspite of having lived in Hoshiarpur while pursuing his studies, Prime Minister Shri Manmohan Singh had never bothered to address local issues. He also cited how the recently released book ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ clearly put forth the autocratic hierarchy in the Prime Minister’s Office, wherein the Mother-Son duo took decisions of national importance, rather than the PM himself.

In Ludhiana, Shri Modi spoke of laying due emphasis on local industries and promoting skill development. He shared his vision of developing skill (empowerment), scale (large scale) and speed (quick speed), and thereby ensuring overall development. Shri Modi also called for the need to focus on zero-defect manufacturing, so as to give an edge to the local manufacturing and industrial spectrum. “If we have to compete with China we need to work on manufacturing and skill development & ensure cities like Ludhiana grow. I want Ludhiana to become the pride of India. We will focus on 0 Defect manufacturing so that ‘Made in India’ brand shines,” said Shri Modi, even as he affirmed of the BJP’s commitment to take the National economy on the global platform by emphasizing on inclusive growth and holistic development.

Urging the people to support the BJP-Shiromani Akali Dal and make it victorious, Shri Modi spoke of the BJP’s focus on pro-people policies and cited some initiatives from the Party’s Manifesto. These included getting standardization in deciding the Minimum Support Price for farmers and introducing the ‘Pradhan Mantri Krushi Seechai Yojana’ for the linking of rivers and providing water to the farmers in every corner of the country.

He appealed to the people to vote for the BJP candidate from Gurdaspur Shri Vinod Khanna, and said, “The world knows Vinod Khanna ji as a fine actor, while the people here in Gurdaspur know him as a simple man dedicated to service. In 2001, during the Gujarat quake, Vinod ji served the people of Kutch just like a simple volunteer.”

Shri Modi recalled his early days spent in Punjab and spoke of how the experience then had made him more relatable to the local issues.

Speaking on the occasion, Punjab CM Shri Parkash Singh Badal spoke of the ruin caused in the State due to the Congress’ inapt policies and stated how Punjab had suffered both economically and otherwise. He affirmed that the SAD-BJP alliance will bring peace, harmony and development in the State.
