Watch: Shri Narendra Modi addressing a Public Meeting in Mahasamund, Chhattisgarh
Shri Narendra Modi addressed huge public rallies in Chhattisgarh today ahead of the 2nd round of assembly polls in the state. Shri Modi spoke at Raigarh, Korba, Bilha and Mahasamund. In his trademark style, Shri Modi launched a scathing attack on the Congress and also praised Dr. Raman Singh for the stupendous work done by his government in Chhattisgarh in the last 10 years.
Talking of Chhattisgarh’s development, Shri Modi touched on the fact that before BJP government came to power in Chhattisgarh, famine and drought were a common occurrence in the state while now, the farmer from Chhattisgarh provides rice to different states of the country. This surplus of crop growth has been possible only because of pro-poor developmental policies of Dr. Raman Singh’s government in Chhattisgarh, he pointed. India’s agriculture growth rate is 2-3% but during Dr. Raman Singh’s government, rice productivity increased in the state, he added. He told the crowdsthat he is seeing a huge wave in favour of BJP wherever he has travelled across Chhattisgarh. “Raman aur Kamal ki hawa chal rahi hai, Congress ka bachna mushkil hai”, said Shri Modi.
He promised the crowd that their faith in the BJP will be repaid by the party. “Aapke prem aur vishwas ko Chhattisgarh ki BJP ki sarkar, byaaj samet, vikas ke madhyam se chukaegi, main aapko ye vishwas dilaane ke liye aaya hu”, said Shri Modi.
Shri Narendra Modi also touched on the problems of Naxalism and terrorism and asked Sonia Gandhi why did her government repeal the POTA act which was brought in by the BJP government to deal exactly with these types of threats. And when, there had been a Naxalite attack in the state, Congress claims that Naxalism is increasing in Chhattisgarh.
Touching on the Congress government’s lackluster foreign and defense policies, Shri Modi questioned how Pakistan has been infiltrating into our territories and killing our soldiers and citizens. He also told how China has been illegally occupying our areas and the union foreign minister praises China. He asked the crowd whether these types of ministers should be kept in the ministry or not and the crowd replied with a strong NO.
Shri Modi also took a dig at the Congress’ prince over his comments of changing the system. He asked the Congress leader about who created this system. Since the last 6o years, Congress has been ruling this country & the system had been created by the Congress leader’s Grandfather, Grandmother & Father. The Congress has been misusing the system for their personal gains.
Shri Modi also raised concerns over the Indian economy under the UPA government. He told about how Rs 15,000 crores is being cut from rural development budget, Rs. 2,000 crores being cut from primary education, Rs 3000 croresfrom higher education & Rs 9000 crores from MNREGA. He wondered that if they have to cut the budget of these essential plans, we can only imagine how bad in shape the Indian economy is right now.
Comparing the various state governments of BJP & Congress, Shri Modi explained the difference between the two of them. He told how there is a competition of good governance between the BJP ruled states while Congress ruled states compete only on parameters like Corruption, misgovernance, committing atrocities on people.
He also touched on the statement by some of the UPA colleagues saying that a tea vendor can’t become Prime Minister of India. He said that this statement by them is anti-poor and insults a bigger lot of the country. He got very emotional on this and said “Kya Gareeb ke ghar mei paida hona gunaah hai? Pet bharne ke liye mazduri karna gunaah hai? Agar ye gunaah hai to wo gunaah maine kiya. Ye Apmaan Hindustan ke har uss gareeb ka hai jo mehnat se apni zindagi basar karta hai.”
Shri Narendra Modi encouraged everyone present to vote for BJP and Dr. Raman Singh on 19th of this month so that he can carry on with his great work of taking Chhattisgarh towards unprecedented heights of development.
