This is the first election in which leaders of the Congress party are not talking about winning the elections themselves but are threatening the country that if BJP wins: PM Modi
BJP considers the entire country as a family. Congress considers their family bigger than the nation, says PM Modi in Kotputli
By 2014, only 20,000 kilometers of railway lines were electrified. In 10 years, we have doubled it: PM Modi at Kotputli Rally
The upcoming third term of the BJP government promises historic and decisive decisions to propel the country forward: PM Modi

Launching the BJP-led NDA's campaign in Rajasthan’s Kotputli for the Lok Sabha polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reminisced about how he highlighted the magnificence of Jaipur a few days ago during the visit of the President of France. The PM said, “The first electoral rally of my Rajasthan campaign began in Dhundhar in 2019. Now, in 2024, the electoral campaign begins again from the same region. You have also made your decision – ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar’.”

Citing the division in the country's politics once again, PM Modi said, “On one side, there's the BJP, committed to the nation's first principles. On the other side, there's the Congress, bent on plundering the country. The BJP views the nation as its family, while the Congress prioritizes its own family over the nation. The BJP works to enhance India's pride in the world, whereas the Congress tends to insult India abroad."

“Rajasthan has always stood firm against such anti-national dynastic forces. Rajasthan gave all 25 seats to the BJP in 2014. Rajasthan also gave all 25 seats to the NDA in 2019. And now, in 2024, Rajasthan is once again going to give all 25 seats,” he added.

Addressing the massive rally, PM Modi remarked, “In 2024, this Lok Sabha election is no ordinary election. This election aims to make India the world's third-largest economy. It's an election to uproot corruption from its core. It's an election to fulfill the dream of self-reliant India. It's an election committed to the prosperity of farmers. This is the first election where dynastic parties are rallying to save their families. This is the first election where all corrupt individuals are rallying together to halt action against corruption. I say - eradicate corruption, they say - save the corrupt.”

Hitting out at the opposition, PM Modi asserted, “I question dynastic parties and their corruption, that's why I'm their target. They hurl abuses at me and say Modi doesn't have any family. For me, you are my family – ‘Mera Bharat, Mera Parivar’. Your dream is my determination.”

PM Modi underscored his government's proactive approach, contrasting it with the neglect of previous governments. He pointed out the neglect of small farmers and shramiks by the Congress, contrasting it with his initiatives like the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme and pension schemes. PM Modi also highlighted the BJP government's provision of free ration to 80 crore needy individuals in the country.

Boasting about the ‘Made In India’ initiative, PM Modi stated, “During the Congress era, India was known as one of the largest importers of weapons in the world. Today, under the BJP government, India is being recognized as a country that exports arms. Just recently, India set a new record in defence exports. For the first time since independence, India has exported defence equipment worth Rs 21,000 crore. India now sells "Made in India" weapons to more than 80 countries. Therefore, I'll say it – ‘Neeyat Sahi, Toh Nateeje Sahi’.”

In a practical state of mind, PM Modi pointed out that, “Amidst India's success, I never asserted we achieved everything in 10 years. However, we have indeed achieved what wasn't done in the last 5-6 decades post-independence. We have worked at the necessary pace.”

Recalling about several milestones from the past years, PM Modi mentioned “By 2014, only 20,000 kilometres of railway lines were electrified. In 10 years, we've doubled it. While Congress talked about poverty, the BJP lifted 25 crore people out of it. Modi fulfilled long-awaited decisions: abolishing Article 370, building a grand Ram temple, enacting laws against triple talaq, and implementing One Rank, One Pension,” and reiterated that “Modi has completed the decisions which were awaited for decades.”

PM Modi remarked that whatever happened in 10 years is just a trailer and positively affirmed, “The upcoming third term of the BJP government promises historic and decisive decisions to propel the country forward. Much remains to be accomplished.”

Taking a sharp jibe at the opposition and their tactics, PM Modi said, “When I push for a developed India and fight corruption, critics from the Congress and INDI Alliance lash out at Modi. Yet, the people of Rajasthan are aware that ‘Dal Baati Churma, Voter Mhara Surma’.”

PM Modi addresses public meetings in Shimla & Mandi, Himachal Pradesh
May 24, 2024
Weak Congress government used to plead around the world: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
Congress left the border areas of India to their fate: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
The Congress has not yet arrived in the 21st century: PM Modi in Mandi, HP
The entire Congress is vehemently anti-women: PM Modi in Mandi, HP
Congress is leading Himachal to ruin: PM Modi in Mandi, HP

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed vibrant public meetings in Shimla and Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, invoking nostalgia and a forward-looking vision for Himachal Pradesh. The Prime Minister emphasized his longstanding connection with the state and its people, reiterating his commitment to their development and well-being.

“When the country didn't even know Modi, I was among you. Times have changed, but Modi has not changed. Modi's relationship with Himachal remains the same,” PM Modi remarked.

Highlighting his continuous engagement with the state, PM Modi sought the people’s blessings for a third term of the BJP government. “Today, I have come to seek your blessings for the BJP government for the third time. I need your blessings to make India strong, to make India Viksit, and for a developed Himachal. Five phases of elections have already taken place in the country. A BJP-NDA government is assured. Now, Himachal will score a hat-trick with a 4-0 victory. Vote for those who will form the government. What is the point of wasting your vote? So, say with me, ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar.”

Addressing the strategic importance of Himachal Pradesh, a state bordering the frontier, PM Modi underscored the necessity of a robust government. “Himachal Pradesh is a state bordering the frontier. The people of Himachal understand the importance of a strong government. Modi will risk his life for you but will not let any harm come to you. The weak Congress government used to plead around the world. Modi says, why should India go to the world? India will fight its battles on its own.”

The Prime Minister also highlighted the infrastructural developments under his administration, contrasting them with the previous Congress regimes. “This is the same Congress that left the border areas of India to their fate. Modi has given many times more money than Congress. Today, hundreds of kilometers of new roads have been built along the border. Today, the lives of soldiers and our people living near the border have become easier.”

PM Modi highlighted the successful implementation of the One Rank One Pension scheme, a long-standing demand of military personnel fulfilled under his leadership. “Congress made military families yearn for One Rank One Pension for four decades. Congress used to say they would bring OROP by showing just 500 crores. This was a huge insult to our army because it was impossible to implement OROP with just 500 crores. It is Modi who has implemented OROP. Modi has given about 1.25 lakh crore rupees to former soldiers through OROP. That's why people say, Modi delivers what he guarantees.”

PM Modi also spoke about sensitive issues, accusing Congress and the INDI alliance of undermining the reservation system and conspiring against the Ram Temple. “I have come today to warn the people of Himachal about another conspiracy by Congress and the INDI alliance. These people want to completely abolish the reservation for SC-ST-OBC and give it to Muslims. Congress is also opposing the Ram temple. You people of Himachal tell me, did you feel good visiting Ram Lalla? But Congress cannot tolerate the Ram temple. Congress is conspiring to lock the Ram temple. Will you allow the Ram temple to be locked?”

Reaffirming his government's commitment to development, PM Modi listed the various initiatives taken for Himachal Pradesh, including the establishment of prestigious educational institutions and infrastructural projects. “No one thought that institutions like IIIT, IIM, and AIIMS could exist in Himachal. But with Modi, it is possible. Himachal has received a bulk drugs park and a medical device park. Himachal is among the first states in the country where the Vande Bharat train started.”

“Modi has guaranteed to make 3 crore sisters associated with self-help groups ‘Lakhpati Didis.’ Modi has also brought a big scheme to make your electricity bill zero. With the ‘PM Suryaghar Muft Bijli Yojana’ your bill will be zero, and you will also earn thousands of rupees. Just as Modi has fulfilled previous guarantees, Modi will fulfill these guarantees as well,” he added.

Addressing his second public meeting in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, PM Modi spoke about the aspirations of the youth and the importance of women's empowerment. He stressed the need for inclusive development and equal opportunities for all citizens.

PM Modi denounced the Congress party's regressive policies and divisive politics, calling for support to build a prosperous and united India. He said, “The Congress has not yet arrived in the 21st century. While people progress, Congress moves in the opposite direction. It's heading back to the 20th century. The Congress royal family is staunchly against daughters. The entire Congress is vehemently anti-women. But for my family in Himachal, listen to me carefully, and educate your daughters well. The assurance of providing them with an open and safe environment and offering them new heights is from Modi.”

“I have opened the doors of military schools and defense academies for daughters. The doors that were once closed for daughters in the army have also been opened. The number of women in central forces has more than doubled in ten years. Whether fighter pilots or passenger aircraft pilots, the coming five years are going to be a soaring flight for daughters. This is Modi's Guarantee,” he added.

Speaking about Congress’ misrule in the state and how his government took initiatives to preserve the state’s heritage, PM Modi said, “Modi government has vigorously promoted this heritage. Himachal's, the country's pride and prosperity, require your every vote. Congress is leading Himachal to ruin. So, it is necessary to stop it. I need your support to remove Himachal from the clutches of Congress.”

While concluding his address, PM Modi called upon the people of Himachal Pradesh to reject the Congress party's outdated ideology and support the BJP in the upcoming elections. He urged voters to elect BJP candidates to ensure continued progress and development in the region.
