CM attacks Congress for doing great injustice to Gujarat be it GUJCOC or Gas Pipeline issue

On Monday 19th November Shri Modi addressed a large number of party workers in the Isanpur area of Ahmedabad. The area falls under the Maninagar Assembly seat, which Shri Modi has been representing since a decade. In a comprehensive and inspiring speech Shri Modi shed light on a variety of issues ranging from democracy, national politics and the elections in Gujarat. He also expressed his wishes to the people on the start of the Gujarati New Year. He stated that the Congress has done such sins that the people will never forgive them.

The Chief Minister described elections as the biggest festival in democracy and termed them as opportunities to integrate the common man into the political process. He stated that not only those above 18 but also small children learn about the system during the elections. Shri Modi added that elections are not only about victory and defeat but an occasion of Lok Shikshan (people’s education) and further shared that during election times many issues pertaining to the people come to our notice and if we can work on them after the election, the respect for democracy in the minds of the common people increases tremendously. Even from the organization point of view, Shri Modi said elections are a great opportunity to strengthen team spirit.

Motivating the workers of Maninagar, Shri Modi said that he is leaving this 1 seat on their shoulders as he goes to work on the 181 other seats. “You work in Maninagar for the victory of one candidate here and I will work for victory of the remaining 181 seats... Let us see who wins this race of victory margins” he said, as the workers gave a thundering applause! He gave the example of Mahatma Gandhi as an effective Lok Sangrahak (organizer) and asked everyone to take inspiration from his method of mobilizing people into a movement.

Shri Modi stated that in the last 11 years the Gujarat has done something remarkable, which is creating a new faith and a trust in the institution of democracy among the people who had lost faith in the political system due to the political culture the Congress has created. He urged political pundits to take not of this but added that either they will either take ages to understand it or will not be brave enough to write about it.

The Chief Minister further shared that in these last 11 years the Gujarat Government has shown that with the same system it is possible to bring about change and create a faith in an atmosphere of mistrust.

Shri Modi declared that the allegations he has encountered are allegations such as ‘You promised 10 km roads but made 8 kms or you promised to build 500 schools and build 350’, which are all centered around development but in case of Congress people only talk about scams to the tune of 1 lakh crore and CWG scams! He affirmed that no one asks the Congress about development now. The Chief Minister also shared the large number of calls he received complementing him for the Kankaria Lakefront Development, which has given a wonderful recreation place for the citizens.

Recalling what former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi (that if one Rupee goes out, by the time it reaches the villages it becomes 15p), Shri Modi stated that Mr. Gandhi made these comments at a time when there was complete control of the Congress on the politics of the country. Yet he only gave the problem and did not talk about the solution. Shri Modi further opined that in reality it was their Hand that swindled the money.

The solution to this has been found in Gujarat over the past 11 years, he said- if 100 paisa leaves Gandhinagar, every single paisa reaches the poor. The Chief Minster asserted that middlemen have become unemployed in Gujarat.

On the relation of the Congress with the people of Gujarat, Shri Modi affirmed that the people of Gujarat know the Congress from head to toe and if the Congress is out of power in most Taluka Panchayats, Zila Panchayats, Nagar Palikas etc. then Gandhinagar is a distant dream for them. He expressed surprise that despite being rejected by the people repeatedly the Congress comes and stands in front of them! He attributed the Congress interest in Gujarat to the fact that there is prosperity in the state- if Gujarat was poor the Congress would never bother, Shri Modi said.

Comparing the difference in their politics, Shri Modi categorically spoke that the BJP follows politics of development whereas for the Congress it is votebank politics. He further spoke that the Congress thought the BJP would make the same mistake of following votebank politics but they have been proven totally wrong. He expressed surprise at the fact that same Congress that thrived on votebank politics and dividing society is now talking about 6 crore Gujaratis in their ads, indicating that atleast they have learnt something. Shri Modi’s advise for the Congress was that if they aspire to make a foothold in Gujarat they must quit votebank politics and embrace politics of development. Till they do not do that, the people will not look at them.

Shri Modi recalled the days of the Congress Government when in every 10 years, 3 Rath Yatras passed in curfew and curfews were common even after cricket matches. All this is history now!

The Chief Minister threw light on a separate Dirty Tricks Department of the Congress whose sole agenda is to create dirty, character assassinate people, publish scurrilous literature etc. He shared that the Congress has spent crores on these methods that are highly unbecoming in a democracy. Shri Modi urged the Congress that they should believe in talking in the open, each side must properly place their points and let the people judge but sadly the Congress believes in lies and nothing else.

During his speech Shri Modi gave several instances of the Congress’ anti-Gujarat mindset. He recalled how IT Notices were sent to those who took part in the Vibrant Gujarat summits and brought investment to Gujarat. Similarly, despite having a 2/3rd majority in the Assembly 2 times, the state Government has been receiving roadblocks from the Centre on the GUJCOC Bill despite the fact that Congress ruled Maharashtra has the same bill. Shri Modi questioned if the people of Gujarat be allowed to suffer injuries at the hands of terrorist? The same injustice is being done in the case of Gujarat’s initiative to provide piped gas to the people.

Shri Modi strongly urged the Congress that if they have a problem with him, they should hang him but they should stop doing injustice to the 6 crore people of Gujarat! He shared that when the Congress assumed power in 2004, on the second day they released an order that they will impose 356 and send Modi to jail instead of laying out a vision for development of the states.

The Chief Minister observed that despite the Congress not leaving any stone unturned to destroy Gujarat the state has made a mark for itself in development at the international stage. The Congress on the other hand has only cheated the people, be it promising to bring prices down in 100 days or promising free power to farmers in Maharashtra and not delivering on the same. He said that since many many years we are hearing the slogan of ‘Garibi Hatao’ but despite ruling the nation for most number of years since 1947 has the Congress removed poverty?

Shri Modi asked the workers to go out and tell every citizen the truth about the Congress and how they have ruined the nation. He narrated the example of how the 2 economists of the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (headed by Smt. Sonia Gandhi) were unceremoniously removed. Their “crime”- they praised the development in Gujarat. He expressed joy that the latest BJP advertisements of the Captain and Vice Captain are generating a tremendous response in Gujarat.

The Chief Minister urged workers to continue to work hard for the elections, obey the Model Code of Conduct and said that victory was guaranteed as there has been development. For Shri Modi, V is both for Vikas and Victory. He again stated that Gujarat will celebrate Diwali on 20th December and despite the entire Delhi descending on Gujarat, the resounding chorus in the state will be ‘Ekmat Gujarat, Bane Bhajap Sarkar!’

Those gathered there showed great enthusiasm in Shri Modi’s priceless words.

Namaste!

It is a delight to address this young and energetic gathering. In front of me is a global family, with all the beautiful diversity of our planet.

The Global Citizen Movement uses music and creativity to bring the world together. Music, like sports, has an inherent ability to unite. The great Henry David Thoreau once said, and I quote: "When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am in-vulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest of times, and to the latest."

Music has a calming impact on our life. It calms the mind and the entire body. India is home to many musical traditions. In every state, in every region, there are many different styles of music. I invite you all to come to India and discover our musical vibrancy anddiversity.

Friends,

For almost two years now, humanity is battling a once in a lifetime global pandemic. Our shared experience of fighting the pandemic has taught us we are stronger and better when we are together. We saw glimpses of this collective spirit when our COVID-19 warriors, doctors, nurses, medical staff gave their best in fighting the pandemic. We saw this spirit in our scientists and innovators, who created new vaccines in record time. Generations will remember the manner in which human resilience prevailed over everything else.

Friends,

In addition to COVID, other challenges remain. Among the most persistent of the challenges is poverty. Poverty cannot be fought by making the poor more dependent on governments. Poverty can be fought when the poor start seeing governments as trusted partners. Trusted partners who will give them the enabling infrastructure to forever break the vicious circle of poverty.

Friends,

When power is used to empower the poor, they get the strength to fight poverty. And therefore, our efforts include banking the unbanked, providing social security coverage to millions, giving free and quality healthcare to 500 million Indians. It would make you happy that about 30 million houses have been built for the homeless in our cities and villages. A house is not only about shelter. A roof over the head gives people dignity. Another mass movement taking place in India is to providedrinking water connection to every household.The Government is spending over a trillion dollars for next-generation infrastructure.For several months last year and now, free food grains have been provided to 800 millions of our citizens.These, and several other efforts will give strength to the fight against poverty.

Friends,

The threat of climate change is looming large before us.The world will have to accept that the any change in the global environment first begins with the self. The simplest and most successful way to mitigate climate change is to lead lifestyles that are in harmony with nature.

The great Mahatma Gandhi is widely known for his thoughts on peace and non-violence. But, do you know that he is also among the greatest environmentalists of the world. He led a zero carbon footprints lifestyle. In whatever he did, he put the welfare of our planet above everything else.He highlighted the doctrine of trusteeship, where we all are trustees of the planet with the duty of caring for it.

Today, India is the only G-20 nation that is on track with its Paris commitments. India is also proud to have brought the world together under the banner of the International Solar Alliance and the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure.

Friends,

We believe in the development of India for the development of humankind.I want to conclude by quoting the Rig Veda, which is perhaps one of the world's oldest scriptures.Its verses are still the golden standard in nurturing global citizens.

The Rig Veda says:

संगच्छध्वंसंवदध्वंसंवोमनांसिजानताम्

देवाभागंयथापूर्वेसञ्जानानाउपासते||

समानोमन्त्रःसमितिःसमानीसमानंमनःसहचित्तमेषाम्।

समानंमन्त्रम्अभिमन्त्रयेवःसमानेनवोहविषाजुहोमि।।

समानीवआकूति: समानाहृदयानिव: |

समानमस्तुवोमनोयथाव: सुसहासति||

It means:

Let us move forward together, speaking in one voice;

Let our minds be in agreement and let us share what we have, like the Gods share with each other.

Let us have a shared purpose and shared minds. Let us pray for such unity.

Let us have shared intentions and aspirations that unify us all.

Friends,

what can be a better manifesto for a global citizen than this?May we keep working together

for a kind, just and inclusive planet.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Namaste.
