Amidst the ongoing election campaigning in Gujarat, PM Modi's rally spree continued as he addressed public meetings in Gujarat’s Netrang, Kheda and Surat today. PM Modi highlighted about the Sankalp Patra released by the state BJP unit for developed Gujarat. He said, “Several resolutions have been taken in the Sankalp Patra to increase the economy of Gujarat, to empower the poor, middle class of the state and for Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas.”

Highlighting how the Double-engine sarkar has ensured faster progress in Gujarat, PM Modi said, be it toilets, gas connections, tap water or electricity connections, all these works have witnessed unprecedented speed in the last 8 years. Tribal families could not even think about them earlier. Today these facilities are reaching every house.”

PM Modi talked about how the BJP government has given direct help to the poor. “As a result of pro-poor policies, more than 3 crore houses have been built under PM Awas Yojana. In this, the central government has sanctioned more than 10 lakh pucca houses for the poor of Gujarat. Of these, 7 lakh have been completed. And the large number of houses are allocated to tribal families,” he added.

Sharing an incident, PM Modi also mentioned how people from rural areas have benefited from the affordable internet data. He shared the gathering that he was late by two minutes here because he wanted to meet two tribal brothers, Avi and Jay. He said, “Avi is 9th standard student while Jay is in 6th. Their parents died 6 years ago due to illness. One was 8 years old and the other was 2 years old then. Both were surviving on their own. Their video story came to my notice and I called CR Patil to do something. I was sitting in Delhi but managed to make arrangements for them. They have own house, fan, computer, TV, all facilities. One today said he wants to become collector, other wants to become engineer.”


Highlights from Kheda public meeting

Addressing his second rally of the day in Gujarat’s Kheda, the PM said, “The difference between the BJP and its opponents is that we serve the poor, while parties like the Congress only have cheated the poor. We have done so much for the poor in the country in just eight years, but the Congress kept on giving the slogan of 'Garibi Hatao' for decades. Today even the renowned experts of the world are agreeing that due to the efforts of the BJP government, poverty is reducing rapidly in the country.”

Thrashing the Congress party for demanding proofs from the armed forces for their surgical strike, PM Modi said, "When the country was fighting a decisive battle against terrorism, they wanted to mislead the country and weaken the fight.” He listed down incidents during which the Congress shed tears on the killings of terrorists. Also, he went on to hit out the previous government for 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.

The PM said, “No one can forget how the then Congress government sitting in Delhi used to spend energy in releasing the terrorists. Gujarat had for a long time been a target of terrorism. People of Gujarat were killed in explosions in Surat and Ahmedabad. Congress was at centre then, we asked them to target terrorism but they targeted me instead. Terrorism was at peak in the country. This is the double engine government of BJP, which is continuously working to curb terror. Your one vote in 2014 has helped a lot in eradicating terrorism.”


Highlights from Surat public meeting

In his final rally of the day, Prime Minister Modi iterated, “When the economy expands, everyone benefits from it. When the economy progresses, the poor also progress, the businessmen and entrepreneurs also progress. When the BJP government came to power at the centre in 2014, the country's economy was at number 10. In just eight years, the country's economy has now come at number 5.”

At the public meeting in Surat, PM Modi said, “Today Gujarat has transformed from a trading state to a manufacturing state. 20 years ago there used to be manufacturing worth Rs 1.25 lakh crore in Gujarat. Today, Gujarat has manufacturing worth more than Rs 16 lakh crore. Gujarat never built cycles before, today even airplanes are going to be made in the state. Surat's textile sector is an example of how the situation has changed. There were 2.5 lakh looms here 20 years ago, today there are more than 7 lakh.”

PM Modi also raised the issue of safety and security of the people of Surat. He said, “Earlier, there was an issue of national security and the security of traders and businessmen. The new generation here has not seen the bomb blasts in Surat or the serial bomb blasts in Ahmedabad. I want to caution our youth, the people of Surat to stay away from people who are well-wishers of terrorists.” He also slammed the Congress party for not taking action against the masterminds of terror and said that instead of taking action against them, the grand old party was conspiring to label Hindus as terrorists.

The PM further said, “We don't even spare the terrorists and rather kill the masterminds of terror by breaking into their homes. Such action for the security of the nation and the protection of its citizens cannot be taken by parties like Congress and other parties who are only involved in votebank and appeasement politics”

At the end, he also urged people of Surat to vote for the BJP in large numbers in the upcoming assembly elections.

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi addressed the Krishnaguru Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan for World Peace, being held at Krishnaguru Sevashram at Barpeta, Assam via video conferencing today. Krishnaguru Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan for World Peace is a month-long kirtan being held from 6th January at Krishnaguru Sevashram.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said that Krishnaguru Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan has been going on for a month. He underlined that the traditions of knowledge, service and humanity in ancient India which were propagated by Krishna Guru ji are in perpetual motion even today. The Prime Minister observed that the divinity of the contributions of Guru Krishna Premanand Prabhu Ji and the efforts of his disciples are clearly visible on this magnificent occasion. Expressing his desire to join the august gathering in person today as well as on previous occasions, the Prime Minister sought the blessings of Krishna Guru so he gets the opportunity to visit the sevashram in the near future.

Referring to the tradition of Akhand Eknaam Jap every twelve years by Krishnaguru ji, the Prime Minister noted the Indian tradition of organizing spiritual events with duty as the key thought. “These events rekindle a sense of duty in the individual and society. People used to gather to discuss and analyze the happenings of the last twelve years, evaluate the present and create a blueprint for the future”, the Prime Minister said. The Prime Minister gave examples of Kumbh, Pushkaram Celebration in the Brahmaputra River, Mahamaham at Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu, Mahamastakabhisheka of Bhagwan Bahubali, blooming of Neelakurinji flower as key events that take place once in twelve years.  Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan is laying down a similarly powerful tradition and making the world familiar with the heritage and spiritual consciousness of the Northeast, he added.  

The Prime Minister underlined that the exceptional talent, spiritual realizations and extraordinary incidents related to the life of Krishnaguru act as a source of inspiration for each one of us. Dwelling on his teachings, the Prime Minister noted that no work or person is big or small. Similarly, the Prime Minister said that the nation has worked towards the betterment of its people with the same spirit of taking everyone along (Sabka Saath) for everyone’s development (Sabka Vikas) with absolute dedication. Underlining that the nation gives top priority to those who have been so far deprived and neglected, the Prime Minister said, “Priority to the deprived” Giving examples of the state of Assam and the Northeast, the Prime Minister observed that these regions have been neglected for decades when it comes to development and connectivity, but they are being given top priority today.  

Referring to this year’s Budget the Prime Minister underlined the same priority to the deprived as the key guiding sentiment. Noting the key role of tourism in the economy of Northeast, the Prime Minister mentioned this year’s Budget provision of developing and upgrading 50 tourist destinations which will benefit the region a great deal. The Prime Minister also talked about the Ganga Vilas Cruise which will soon reach Assam. He highlighted that Indian heritage’s most valuable treasures are situated on the river banks.  

The Prime Minister also mentioned Krishnaguru Sewashram’s work for artisans in traditional skills and informed the country has done historical work in developing the traditional skills and linking the artisans with the global markets in the last few years. He also informed about changing laws about bamboo and changing its category from tree to grass, which opened the avenues of bamboo business. He said that ‘Unity Malls’, proposed in the Budget, will help farmers, artisans and youth of Assam by showcasing their products. These products will be showcased in the Unity Malls in other states and big tourist places.  The Prime Minister also talked about his fondness for Gamosa  and said that it encapsulates the hard work and skills of the women of Assam. He also noted the increasing demand for Gamosa  and self-help groups that have emerged to meet the rising demand. Shri Modi said that the Budget has made special provisions for these self-help groups. “In order to make the income of women a means of their empowerment, ‘Mahila Samman Saving Certificate’ scheme has also been started. Women will especially get the benefit of higher interest on savings” he said. He also said that PM Awas Yojana allocation has been increased to 70 thousand crores and most of the houses built under the scheme are in the name of the women of the house. “There are many such provisions in this budget, from which women of North Eastern states like Assam, Nagaland, Tripura, Meghalaya will be widely benefited, new opportunities will be created for them’, he added. 

Quoting the teachings of Krishnaguru, the Prime Minister said that one should always serve their own soul while believing in the daily acts of devotion. Underlining that the lifeline of various government run schemes for the development of the country make for the power of the society and public participation, the Prime Minister said that these Sewa Yagya like the one organized today are becoming a great strength of the country. Giving the examples of Swacch Bharat, Digital India and various other schemes that were made successful by public participation, the Prime Minister emphasized that Krishnaguru Sevashram has an important role to play in taking forward schemes like Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Poshan Abhiyan, Khelo India, Fit India, Yoga  and Ayurveda that will further strengthen the nation. 

The Prime Minister pointed out that the country is starting PM Vishwakarma Kaushal Yojana for the traditional artisans. “The country has now for the first time resolved to enhance the skills of these traditional artisans”, the Prime Minister emphasized, requesting Krishnaguru Sevashram to work to spread awareness about the scheme. The Prime MInister asked the Sewashram to propagate coarse grains, recently branded as Shri Anna by preparing ‘Prasada’ with Shri Anna. He also asked them to take the history of the freedom fighters to the younger generation through Sevashram publications. Concluding the address, the Prime  Minister said that we will be witnessing a more empowered India when this Akhand Kirtan will take place after 12 years.


Paramguru Krishnaguru Ishwar established the Krishnaguru Sevashram in 1974, at Nasatra village in Barpeta, Assam.  He is the ninth descendant of Mahavaishnab Manohardeva, who was a follower of the great Vaishnavite saint Shri Shankardeva. Krishnaguru Eknaam Akhanda Kirtan for World Peace is a month-long kirtan being held from 6th January at Krishnaguru Sevashram.
