In a special programme, Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with District BJP Presidents of all districts across the length and breadth of India. 

He also interacted with Constituency Karyakartas in 5 Parliamentary seats- New Delhi, Delhi North East, Mumbai North Central, Hamirpur (Himachal Pradesh) and Saran (Bihar). Shri Modi affirmed that he was interacting with Karyakartas in these seats keeping a promise to MP colleagues who have over 3,00,000 Social Media followers.

This programme takes place on the day the Bharatiya Janata Party is making its Sthapana Diwas.

BJPborn in touch circumstances, risen to new heights

Recalling the foundation of the BJP the Prime Minister stated, “The BJP was born in the city of Mumbai, in extremely tough circumstances. The BJP and its senior leaders were virtually ostracized from prevalent political scenario. Infact, if there is one party that has consistently been a victim of political untouchability, it is the BJP.” He added that times have not changed and now it is for everyone to see where the BJP is and where those who treated the BJP shabbily are.

Shunya to Shikhar due to party Karyakartas 

Shri Modi avowed that the BJP’s journey from ‘Shunya’ to ‘Shikhar’ is due to the stupendous efforts of the Party’s Karyakartas. “It is our Karyakartas who have fulfilled Atal Ji’s words- Andhera Chhatega, Suraj Niklega, Kamal Khilega. Our journey is a Yatra of dedication of countless selfless workers,” he pointed.

He termed the BJP as a party that is a true believer in democratic ethos. “In the BJP there are no divisions, no dynasty politics and no ‘I’ versus you. It is truly democratic and a democratic political party can effectively serve a democratic nation. 

Government of the poor

Speaking about the four years of the BJP-led NDA Government PM Modi opined, “Ours is a Government fully dedicated to the poor and this is also seen in the working of the various state governments of the BJP. Our endeavour is to bring a transformative change in the lives of the poor.”

BJP most inclusive party

Shri Modi gave a clarion call to the BJP Karyakartas to keep working for the nation and never get agitated by negativity of vested interest groups. 

“We are living in a time when the Opposition to BJP is at its highest. Sometimes, it also takes a violent turn. This is not because we made a mistake. It is the strength of the BJP that is affecting our opponents”, said the Prime Minister, adding, “They are unable to digest that a poor person born into a backward family is serving as the nation’s Prime Minister. They cannot imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a President on our own strength, we elected a person belonging to the Dalit community. They cannot imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader.”

Shri Modi expressed pride that the BJP has the most Dalit, Tribal and OBC representatives in India, both in the Parliament and in the various state assemblies.

He appealed to the BJP Karyakartas never to say or do anything that lowers India’s political discourse and remain focussed on serving the nation.

Individual connect with Karyakartas

The Prime Minister also spoke to a select group of BJP Karyakartas based in Delhi, Mumbai, Himachal Pradesh and Bihar.

Pravin Sharma from Himachal Pradesh asked the Prime Minister on the journey of the BJP so far and the ways ahead to further strengthen the Party. Answering his question the Prime Minister said, “Yes, the situation has changed considerably. Three to four decades ago, our energies were primarily devoted to Vistaar or expansion of the party whereas now, having got the opportunity to serve several states the aim has become Vikas or development. From the Sangharsh of the yesteryears we have to also focus on Seva.” He appealed to the BJP Karyakartas to embrace the changing circumstances and at the same time work for the common good of society.

Mamata from Delhi’s Mukherji Nagar wanted to know how the Prime Minister remains calm in the midst of so much negativity. She wanted the Prime Minister to share Mantras with the BJP workers, whom she called Election Warriors, just like the Prime Minister did for Exam Warriors. Shri Modi told her, “First and foremost, I want to tell you, there is no need for anger. Truth will always triumph. Our way is Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and we must remain dedicated to this cause.”

He told BJP Karyakartas that elections are won or lost at the booth level, which is why it is important to have effective booth management. 

Shri Modi affirmed that there are two contrasting moods in the two different alliances in India. He pointed, “The NDA family is getting Jeet after Jeet (victory after victory), which is forcing the other parties to spread Jhooth after Jhooth (lies after lies). Their only aim is to defeat Modi, nothing else.”

Reshma from Mumbai wanted to know about the usage of technology, to which the Prime Minister said, “Life without technology is a life incomplete and we must keep using technology for a better future.” He urged BJP Karyakartas to get more people to use the BHIM App.

Shri Modi described technology as an effective way to communicate and that too, communicate the truth. He urged BJP Karyakartas to regularly use the various Government sites and the ‘Narendra Modi App’ for latest news about the work of the Government.

A BJP Karyakarta from Bihar asked the Prime Minister on the four years of the NDA Government. The Prime Minister opined that having been in the Opposition, the BJP knows what issues the people face and now, having been in Government we should work towards those solutions.

Shri Modi appealed to the BJP Karyakartas to get acquainted with the extensive work done by the NDA Government, particularly those schemes that positively impact the poor.

Answering a question from Ravi, who is a BJP Karyakarta based in New Delhi, the Prime Minister said every BJP worker has the duty of building a New and developed India. He requested them to devote themselves towards serving society and impacting the lives of people around them. He cited the example of the good work being done in the New Delhi Parliamentary seat, where awareness on waste to health and public health is being spread.

In Netrang, PM Modi says be it toilets, gas connections, tap water or electricity connections, all these works have witnessed unprecedented speed in the last 8 years
Several resolutions have been taken in Gujarat’s Sankalp Patra for Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas: PM Modi in Netrang
Congress was at centre then, we asked them to target terrorism but they targeted me instead: PM Modi in Kheda
Some parties using appeasement politics as shortcut to power: PM Modi in Kheda

Amidst the ongoing election campaigning in Gujarat, PM Modi's rally spree continued as he addressed public meetings in Gujarat’s Netrang and Kheda 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, 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.”
