A clarion call to support the BJP’s pro-people governance was given by Shri Narendra Modi during his address at the 3D Bharat Vijay rally on the evening of 3rd May. The Congress’ indifference towards the welfare of its people, as also its unconcern to preserve the Nation’s natural resources like the Ganges, was shared by Shri Modi, who appealed to the people to end such adverse form of politics.
Shri Modi talked about the piousness associated with the Ganges, and highlighted how this may get eroded soon since the Holy river, today, is filled with dirt and filth. He spoke of how many committees under the Central government were formed to clean the Ganga, but it was only the funds allotted for it that had disappeared and not the dirt. “Ganga is a part of our culture. Thankfully the Ganga has been spared from being seen through 'communal' lines. Please bless me so that I can serve Maa Ganga and bring a change in your lives,” said Shri Modi.
Speaking of his close affinity to the people of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Modi expressed grief at how kids in the State were losing their lives due to malnutrition and consumption of polluted water. He stated how this concern was not a case of political complexity but rather of humanity and the will and determination to address and resolve it.
Shri Modi also addressed the troubles people had to face due to floods and asserted how the linking of rivers – as dreamt by Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee – could have solved this concern by providing the excess water to the drought-ridden regions. The dismal state-of-affairs, be it for the betterment of farmers or the clean-up of the Ganges, was spoke off by Shri Modi, who asserted how the Central government was least bothered to do any of this.
Drawing the people’s attention to the contradiction between the agendas of the Congress and the BJP, Shri Modi spoke of how Congress’ efforts were to save their ‘kursi’ (chair) while the BJP’s focus was to bring ‘khushi’ (happiness) on the faces of the people. He spoke of how the Congress was shaken with the recent political fervor for the BJP, so much so that their leaders were unwilling to contest the Elections due to the fear of losing. “Congress is in the ICU. They can get their well wishers out from every jail but that will not make a difference to their fortunes. Congress is rattled. They know their defeat and so are playing games like showing their support for the 3rd front and trying to create instability. Is this Desh Bhakti?” opined Shri Modi.
Shri Modi recalled his recent visit to Seemandhra and spoke of how the people there were determined to make the State ‘Swarnim Andhra’ by supporting a progress-oriented government. He also affirmed of his vision to develop the Eastern part of India and make it at par with its Western counterpart, thereby ensuring overall and inclusive development of the Nation.
Shri Modi called upon the people to take the lead in fighting against poverty, illiteracy, blind beliefs and suffering. He urged them to vote for the BJP and show their support for a government that believes in uniting the Nation and developing it for a better tomorrow. “Elections have gone on for long. Some may be feeling tired but the election is till the last vote, till the last seat. The decision of the people must be clear, and the people must vote for a strong government & give us 300 Lotuses,” said Shri Modi.
