Under PM Modi’s successful leadership, the country is coming together to realize the dream of "One India Great India", says UP CM Yogi Adityanath.

The birth anniversary of Lord Vishwakarma, the architect of this universe, and the birthday of our illustrious prime minister, the architect of a better India, are on the same day. What a beautiful coincidence!

Great leaders not only dedicate themselves to a larger goal, but also create institutions and systems to achieve that goal.

In the past nine and a half years, we have had a first-hand experience of the embodiment of this greatness in PMNarendra Modi.
Prior to 2014, there was a feeling of disgust among the people towards the system because of the rot that had set in for a prolonged period of corruption, appeasement and nepotism. The welfare schemes of the government were selective, the word 'socialism' was reduced to ‘familyism’ and the slogan of 'Garibi Hatao' to 'eliminating the poor'.

Amid this gloom and despair, the people decided to bring about a radical change in the system by electing a government led by Modiji in 2014. He rekindled the hope of people for a bright future and in him they saw the force that could meet their expectations, fulfil their aspirations and realize their dreams.

Undoubtedly, this was the beginning of India's social, economic, political and cultural renaissance. It is the specialty of his leadership that Modiji made all 140 crore countrymen a part of his mission, his ‘yagya’. The importance of India's ‘trinity’ of demography, democracy and diversity was explained to every countryman. People were introduced to India’s true and untapped potential.
The creation of a 'new India' became possible only as a result of this ‘yagya’ of national awakening. It is a miracle of Modi ji's successful leadership that India, divided into different religions, sects, beliefs, languages and thoughts, is coming together to realize the dream of 'One India Great India'.

Today, India is free from the curse of Article 370 in Kashmir. Muslim sisters are free from any medieval abomination like triple talaq. Every crop of every farmer is insured. Every poor person has the blessing of 'Ayushman' and the unparalleled happiness of having his own house.

'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas’ is the soul of this new work culture. In this new system that imbibes the mantra of 'Antyodaya to Sarvodaya', the person at the last rung of the society is the top priority of the government. For the first time, agriculture and farmers are at the centre of political discussion. There is confidence in the government among the common people. Probably Goswami Tulsidas ji has given the name 'Ram Rajya' for such a system.

In a country that spent 70 years under the shadow of monarchy in the form of dynastic politics, it was unimaginable that a Prime Minister would ever wash the feet of sanitation workers. But the entire country witnessed this in Prayagraj when Modiji washed the feet of sanitation workers with a sense of gratitude.

In an epidemic like Covid, the entire country came together and remained disciplined at every call of its leader. This is possible only when the people have an unshakeable faith in the policies and intentions of their leadership. Modi ji is the only leader to earn this capital in post-independence India. The PM’s address to the countrymen as 'My family' from the ramparts of the historic Red Fort fills the mind of every Indian with a sense of belonging.

If we look closely at Modi ji's personality, we find a reflection of a beautiful coordination of the qualities of both practicality and idealism. He is a statesman and also has the purity and innocence of a child. Every step of his journey has been full of challenges and struggles. It is the unique personality of Modi ji that makes him consider challenges as opportunities, overcome every obstacle and continuously move forward to fulfil his objectives.

The concept of our PM, who has a vision of faith and economy, has been to carry development and heritage together. After waiting for 500 years, Shri Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Awadhpuri is ready to be inaugurated. The whole world is watching Ayodhya. Today, much awaited works like Sri Kashi Vishwanath Dham, revival of Kedarnath Dham as well as ‘ Mahakal ka Mahalok’ in Ujjain have given an opportunity to the faith that has been hurt for centuries to blossom again.

This past decade under the leadership of PM Modi has been a period of restoration of India's glory. Recently a new Parliament building has been inaugurated in the country.

In the past nine and a half years, not only us Indians, but the entire world has been a witness to the creation of a 'New India' and is watching 'Bharat Uday' (emergence of Bharat) on Mars, Moon and Sun with great eagerness.

Today, wherever there is a humanitarian crisis, the world looks towards PM Modi with hope. The success of the recently concluded G-20 under his visionary leadership has placed India at the centre of the new world order.

Under his guidance, the entire India has adopted the great resolutions of the Amrit Kaal. The ‘Panch Pran' (five pledges) proclaimed from the ramparts of the Red Fort is the soul of these resolutions. The entire country is moving forward with a united voice and a united spirit for their fulfilment. The dream of 'self-reliant India' and 'developed India' is now closer to becoming a reality.

Narendra Modi: The Underground Warrior Against the Emergency
June 25, 2024

During the infamous Emergency period in India (1975-1977), when the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi imposed a dictatorial regime, Shri Narendra Modi emerged as a critical figure in the resistance movement. Shri Modi's activism during this period, marked by his innovative and fearless approach, significantly contributed to the underground communications network and sustained the fight against the oppressive regime.

The Beginnings of Resistance

Shri Narendra Modi's journey into the heart of the resistance began before the official declaration of the Emergency on June 25, 1975. The student-led agitations against the corruption of the Congress Party were already sweeping the nation, and Gujarat was a significant epicentre of this movement. During the Navnirman Andolan in 1974, Shri Modi, then a Yuva Pracharak of the RSS, was deeply influenced by the power of student voices in driving change. He actively participated in these agitations, leveraging his Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad role to deliver fiery speeches that galvanized the youth.

Role in the Underground Movement

Once the Emergency was imposed, censorship and repression became the norm. Shri Modi and other volunteers organized secret meetings and took on the dangerous task of disseminating underground literature. Collaborating closely with senior RSS leaders like Nath Zagda and Vasant Gajendragadkar, he developed ingenious methods to bypass tight security measures.
One of Shri Modi's remarkable strategies involved using the railway network to spread information. He would load materials related to the Constitution, laws, and the Congress government's excesses onto trains departing from Gujarat, ensuring the messages reached remote areas with minimal risk of detection. This innovative approach was pivotal in maintaining the flow of information across the country.

Leadership and International Outreach

With the RSS forced to go underground, the Gujarat Lok Sangharsh Samiti was established, and Shri Modi, at the young age of 25, quickly rose to the position of General Secretary. His leadership was instrumental in sustaining the revolt against the Congress government, especially during the challenging periods when key movement leaders were imprisoned under the MISA Act.

Shri Narendra Modi also extended his efforts internationally, reaching out to individuals abroad and urging them to publish underground publications to amplify global resistance. He coordinated the collection of articles from the Gujarat Newsletter and Sadhana Patrika, which were then disseminated through platforms like the BBC. Shri Modi ensured that international publications critical of the Emergency, such as 'Satyavani,' were circulated back to India, including inside jails.

Covert Operations and Disguises

Shri Modi frequently adopted various disguises to evade detection. His ability to blend in was so effective that even his acquaintances often failed to recognize him. He dressed as a Swamiji in saffron attire and even as a Sikh with a turban. On one occasion, he successfully deceived jail authorities to deliver an important document, highlighting his resourcefulness and bravery.

Post-Emergency Recognition

After the Emergency was lifted in 1977, Shri Modi's activism and leadership during this tumultuous period began to gain recognition. He was invited to Mumbai to discuss the youth's resistance efforts, and his contributions were acknowledged with a modest monetary reward. His relentless efforts during the Emergency led to his appointment as the 'Sambhag Pracharak' of South and Central Gujarat, and he was tasked with preparing official RSS articles documenting the period.

Authoring 'Sangharsh Ma Gujarat'

In 1978, Shri Modi authored his first book, 'Sangharsh Ma Gujarat,' a memoir of his experiences during the Emergency. Remarkably, he completed the book in just 23 days, subsisting solely on lemon water and no solid food. The book, launched by then Chief Minister of Gujarat Babubhai Jasbhai Patel, received widespread acclaim for its objective coverage of the Emergency and was reviewed on national public radio and in prominent newspapers.

The memoir not only chronicled the events of the Emergency but also served as a testament to the collective resistance. It was praised for its wealth of information and objective approach, earning personal accolades from numerous leaders.

Legacy, Continued Vigilance and Solemn Vow

Fifty years later, as Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi continues to remind the nation of the dark days of the Emergency. He emphasizes the importance of preserving democracy and vows never to let the recurrence of such authoritarianism again. His legacy as a fearless warrior against the dictatorial regime of Indira Gandhi during the Emergency remains a significant chapter in India's history, inspiring current and future generations to uphold the values of democracy and freedom.
