Addressing the Karyakarta Mahakumbh on the afternoon of Wednesday 25th September 2013 Shri Narendra Modi called for the fulfillment of Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of dismantling the Congress Party. He called for a Congress Mukt Hindustan and added that in order to achieve a Congress Mukt Hindustan we have to achieve a Congress Mukt Polling Booth. He inspired Karyakartas to ensure that the Congress Party is wiped out at the polling both level itself. The BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate noted that all surveys are showing a clear BJP wave and are taking note of the popularity of BJP leaders such as Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Smt. Vasundhara Raje and Dr. Raman Singh in the states. At the same time, he stressed on taking the wave in the minds of the people into the polling booth. BJP Rajya Sabha MP Shri Anil Dave announced that 7,21,083 people from all corners of Madhya Pradesh attended the Karyakarta Mahakumbh.
Shri Modi paid rich tributes to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and said that the manner in which the Madhya Pradesh unit of the BJP has organized the Karyakarta Mahakumbh, it is the best tribute to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya. Shri Modi said that Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya devoted every moment of his life to strengthening the organisation. He added that 2015-2016 would mark the 100th birth anniversary year of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and the Karyakartas of the BJP must take it on themselves that there is a BJP Government in New Delhi when this happens. Shri Modi paid rich tributes to former BJP President Shri Kushabhau Thakre and pointed that while he never got to see Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, through Kushabhau ji he got to know how Pandit ji would be.
In a direct attack on the Congress party Shri Modi said, "Congress ruled the nation for 60 years but never before did their leaders talk about inclusive growth. Now the Congress has to accept inclusive growth because wherever the BJP has served, their Governments have delivered on inclusive growth. The Delhi Sultanate has to talk about inclusive growth and the credit for this goes to Shivraj ji.” Referring to the anti-development attitude of the Congress Shri Modi shared that when the Congress came to know that the top 5 performing states in the 20 point programme were BJP or NDA ruled states, they stopped the evaluation of the programme instead of telling their Governments to improve.
Shri Modi showered praise on the development works done by Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan ji in Madhya Pradesh and expressed confidence of the BJP’s win in the state in the coming elections. He recalled that the good governance that the BJP Governments provided under Shri Sunderlal Patwa and Shri Kailash Joshi was undone by the Congress Government in Madhya Pradesh for 10 years, which put MP in the BIMARU category. “Madhya Pradesh has once again risen under the leadership of Shivraj ji and we cannot let the Congress win at this critical stage,” he affirmed. Shri Modi also spoke about Shivraj ji’s achievements in the power and other sectors of development.
Sharing his own personal experiences with Shri Chouhan, Shri Modi recalled that the two of them have worked shoulder to shoulder a long time ago and that he had heard Shivraj ji talk about Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya’s ‘Integral Humanism’ that made him understand Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay even better. Shri Modi pointed that whatever Shivraj ji spoke at that time, he has put into practice in the last many years while serving as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh.
Narendra Modi ji came down heavily on the Congress-led UPA for their discriminatory attitude against states that have elected non-Congress Governments. He pointed that both Atal ji and Advani ji ran a Government in Delhi but none of the states complained that their development is suffering due to the NDA. He gave the example of the Centre’s refusal to build gates on the Sardar Sarovar Dam, which is affecting the generation of 800 MW power to the people of Madhya Pradesh. Likewise, he asked why is it that Congress ruled Kerala is getting money to build houses for the poor while Madhya Pradesh is not? He affirmed that the Government may be of the BJP but the poor are Indians and that the Centre should stop playing with their lives.
Commenting on the blatant misuse of Central agencies by the Government, Shri Modi avowed that it is not the Congress that is fighting the coming elections but the CBI that is doing so. “Congress lacks the strength to defeat the BJP so they have put the CBI in the field,” he stated.
Senior BJP leaders Shri LK Advani ji, Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi, Shri Rajnath Singh, Smt. Sushma Swaraj, Shri Arun Jaitley, Shri Venkaiah Naidu, Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Shri Ananth Kumar and Uma Bharti ji spoke on the occasion.
