People of Assam trust NDA for development and peace, says PM Modi in Kokrajhar
Congress has handed over its 'hand' and fortune to leaders of that party which had pushed Kokrajhar into violence: PM Modi on Cong-AIUDF alliance

Ahead of the third and last phase of assembly elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses a public rally in Assam's Kokrajhar today. He said, “Football is very popular among youth here. If I have to speak in their language, I would say that the people have yet again shown a Red Card to Congress and its Mahajot. People of Assam trust NDA for development, peace, security of the state.”

Targeting the Congress-led grand alliance named Mahajot, PM Modi said that this is an election between the 'Maha jhooth' of Mahajot and 'Maha Vikas' of Double Engine.

Talking about the land allotment certificates given to the indigenous people, PM Modi stated, “From providing land pattas to over 3.25 lakh families, increase rates of workers to making life of women working in tea gardens, the NDA government has tried to bring all-round development in Assam.” PM Modi alleged that Congress never worked for the upliftment of tea garden workers while the NDA government has increased and doubled their wages.

Attacking Congress and AIUDF alliance, Prime Minister Modi asserted, “Congress has handed over its 'hand' and fortune to leaders of that party which had pushed Kokrajhar into violence. Congress is dreaming of coming to power in Assam with the help of those people whom it had saved for its vote bank.”

“Yesterday, the entire state of Assam saw in a video how the identity of Assam, the symbol of the hardwork of the women of Assam 'Gamosa' was insulted publicly. Everyone who loves Assam is hurt and angry after seeing those pictures,” said PM Modi while speaking in Kokrajhar

Speaking about the centre’s development work, the Prime Minister remarked, “Medical college is being setup in Kokrajhar at a rapid pace. A package of Rs 1,500 crore has also been provided for development.
Bodoland University, Central Institute of Technology, Bodoland Bhawan and several other institutions are becoming the identity of this region.”

“The government of double engine is essential for the continued development of Assam. That is, NDA government at the center and NDA government in the state. When strength of both will be combined, more work will be done,” he added.

The Prime Minister also highlighted that every poor family has been provided toilets, he said, “Now we are working hard on providing clean drinking water. Nearly 4.5 lakh tap water connections have already been provided. From railways, roadways to air connectivity, everything is being improved in this region today. Thousands of houses have been built in Kokrajhar for the poor and needy.”

The Prime Minister expressed confidence that the NDA will form the government in Assam and said people have stamped the victory in the previous phase of polling.

PM Modi addresses a public meeting in Mayurbhanj, Odisha
May 29, 2024
On June 10, Odisha will witness swearing-in of its first BJP CM: PM Modi in Mayurbhanj, Odisha
The land of Mayurbhanj is known for women empowerment: PM Modi in Mayurbhanj, Odisha
You trusted BJD for 25 years, but it broke your trust at every step: PM Modi in Mayurbhanj, Odisha

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an enthusiastic public meeting in Mayurbhanj, Odisha with a vision of unprecedented development and transformation for the state and the country. PM Modi emphasized the achievements of the last decade under his leadership and laid out ambitious plans for the next five years, promising continued progress and prosperity for all Indians.

Declaring his final day of the election campaign in Odisha, PM Modi declared, "After five decades, the country is poised to form a full majority government for the third consecutive time. The development that people had not witnessed for decades has been seen in the past 10 years." Also, PM Modi highlighted the remarkable economic progress made since 2014 and said, "In 2014, we were the 11th largest economy in the world. Today, we are the fifth largest economic power.”

"Before 2014, less than 40 % of villages in the country had proper sanitation. Today, we have achieved the target of 100 %. Previously, LPG connections were available in only 50-55 % of households. Today, almost 100 % of households have been freed from smoke. Until 2014, more than 75 % of rural families did not have access to tap water. Today, approximately 75 % of households receive water through taps. The idea that free food grains and free medical treatment could be available was unimaginable. Today, Modi has made it possible,” said PM Modi highlighting the progressive approach of his government.

Looking forward, PM Modi assured the people that the next five years would be filled with unprecedented achievements. “India will become the third largest economic power in the world. In the next five years, we will witness an ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ in many sectors. We will see a complete transformation of highways, expressways, and railways. This will directly benefit our eastern regions, including Odisha," PM Modi remarked.

Raising concerns over the conspiracy behind health issues of Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik, PM Modi said, “Today, all well-wishers of Naveen Babu are deeply concerned. They are very distressed to see how Naveen Babu's health suddenly deteriorated in the last year. People who have been close to Naveen Babu for years now discuss this with me when they meet. They tell me that Naveen Babu is now unable to make any decisions on his own. People who have been close to Naveen Babu for a long time now believe that there might be some conspiracy behind his deteriorating health.”

PM Modi expressed confidence that the people of Odisha have decided to put an end to 25 years of BJD rule and said, "I am pleased that Odisha has decided to put an end to 25 years of BJD rule. On June 10, Odisha will witness the swearing-in of its first BJP Chief Minister."

Reflecting on the unique cultural heritage of Mayurbhanj, PM Modi praised its tradition of women empowerment. "The land of Mayurbhanj is known for women empowerment. Traditionally, Mayurbhanj has been celebrated because only women pull the chariot of Maa Subhadra here. But now, the daughter of Mayurbhanj is leading our country of 140 crore people. Our President Draupadi Murmu is the first citizen of the country. This is a matter of pride for Mayurbhanj, Odisha, and the entire nation's women."

Reaffirming his commitment to the welfare of the tribal community, PM Modi stated, "The BJP government is dedicated to the pride and welfare of the tribal community. It was the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government that established a separate Tribal Ministry. The BJP was the first to include the Santhali language in the Eighth Schedule. I am the first Prime Minister to visit the village of Lord Birsa Munda. It is the Modi government that declared Lord Birsa Munda's birth anniversary as ‘Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas."

PM Modi assured the farmers and families involved in forest product collection of substantial support. "Many families in this region are engaged in the collection of forest products like ‘Sal’ leaves, ‘Sabai’ grass, and ‘Kendu’ leaves. Odisha BJP guarantees to purchase kendu leaves at 2 rupees per carry and provide a bonus. When our government comes to power, paddy farmers here will receive an MSP of 3100 rupees per quintal."

PM Modi criticized the BJD government for breaking the trust of the people and engaging in corrupt practices. "You trusted the BJD for 25 years, but the BJD has broken your trust at every step. This same BJD government had introduced a law to grab the lands of tribal brothers. Due to pressure from the BJP, they had to withdraw it. The BJD has also looted your mineral resources. Modi established the District Mineral Fund, giving thousands of crores of rupees to Odisha. The BJD committed fraud even with this fund."
