"Narendra Modi campaigns in Chandigarh"
"Narendra Modi appeals to the voters to elect Kirron Kher and reject the corrupt Congress"
"UPA has become a burden for the nation and the people of India have understood that: Narendra Modi"


On the evening of Saturday 29th March 2014 Shri Narendra Modi addressed a large public meeting in Chandigarh. Shri Modi made a strong pitch to the voters of Chandigarh to elect Smt. Kirron Kher as their MP and defeat the corrupt ways of the Congress, which have been exposed after former Minister Shri Pawan Kumar Bansal has been given the ticket. “Chandigarh Ko Vikas Ki Kiran Chaiye, Na Ki Bhrashtachar Ka Pawan” (Chandigarh requires the rays of progress, not the winds of corruption) he affirmed. On the mood of the nation, Shri Modi affirmed that the mood was clear and that the nation has understood what a big burden the UPA has become.

Shri Modi said that coming to Chandigarh is like coming back to his own home, recalling the years he spent in Chandigarh when he was doing Party work in the 1990s. He raised issues pertaining to the ex-servicemen and took on the Congress for playing politics on the issue of ‘One Rank, One Pension’ for the servicemen. Shri Modi stressed on the importance of good governance for giving the youth of India a sound future. He talked about how technology can play a positive role in mitigating corruption, giving examples from his experience in Gujarat.

Taking on the UPA for giving a ticket to Shri Pawan Kumar Bansal, Shri Modi question why he was removed from the Ministry and if he was removed why was he given a ticket? “Corruption is a part of the Congress and a Congress Mukt Bharat is the way ahead for achieving a corruption free India,” pointed Shri Modi.

Shri Modi shared that vested interest groups have joined hands to prevent the NDA from coming to power and added that the Congress is wondering how can a tea-seller from a humble background challenge their might. 

Deputy CM of Punjab Shri Sukhbir Singh Badal was present on the occasion. Others present include Smt. Kirron Kher, Shri Satya Pal Jain, Smt. AartiMehra among others.

Parliament session should be judged on work done and discussions held, not disruptions: PM
November 29, 2021

Namaskar friends,

This session of Parliament is very important. The country is celebrating the Amrit Mahotsav of freedom. Ordinary citizens from across India are pitching in by organizing several programs and taking steps to fulfill the dreams of the freedom fighters in the public and national interest during the Amrit Mahotsav of freedom. These stories are a good sign for the bright future of India.

Recently, the entire country made a resolution on Constitution Day to fulfill the spirit of the Constitution with a new resolution. In this context, all of us and every citizen of the country would like this session and subsequent sessions of Parliament to hold discussions in the interest of the country and find new ways for the development of the country according to the spirit of the freedom fighters and the Amrit Mahotsav of freedom. This session should be rich in ideas and positive debates should have far-reaching impact. I hope the Parliament should be judged how it functions and its significant contributions rather than who disrupted Parliament forcefully. This cannot be the benchmark. The benchmark would be how many hours the Parliament worked and how much positive work was done. The government is willing to discuss every issue with an open mind. The government is ready to answer every question. And we would like that there should be questions in Parliament and peace should also prevail.

Voices against government policies should be forceful but the dignity of Parliament and the Chair should be upheld. We should maintain the sort of conduct that will inspire younger generations. Since the last session, the country has administered more than 100 crore Covid vaccine doses and we are now moving fast towards the figure of 150 crores. We should be alert to the new variant. I also request all the members of Parliament and to you also to be alert, because everyone’s health is our priority in this hour of crisis.

A scheme to provide food grains free of cost under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana is going on so that more than 80 crore citizens of the country do not suffer any more during this Corona period. Now it has been extended till March 2022. The scheme costing about 2.60 lakh crore rupees takes care of the concerns of more than 80 crore countrymen so that the stove of the poor keeps on burning. I hope we take expeditious decisions together in the interest of the country in this session and fulfill the wishes and expectations of the common man. This is my expectation. Thank you very much.
