Shri Narendra Modi criticizes Prime Minister for the ongoing power crisis.

 Pradhan Mantri ji, 60 cr people & 19 states are in darkness. Country wants to know is there any coalition dharma you are following here too?”

 With poor economic management UPA has emptied pockets of common man; kept stomachs hungry with inflation & today pushed them into darkness!”

 For the second time in 2 days, Northern Grid suffers failure. Eastern Grid down too.

 

On a day when both the Northern and the Eastern Grids suffered major failures (the second in 24 hours for the Northern Grid), Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi minced no words in attacking the poor management abilities of the UPA.

In the evening of 31st July 2012, Shri Modi Tweeted, “Pradhan Mantri ji, 60 cr people & 19 states are in darkness. Country wants to know is there any coalition dharma you are following here too?” He added, “With poor economic management UPA has emptied pockets of common man; kept stomachs hungry with inflation & today pushed them into darkness!” 

This is not the first time Shri Modi has lambasted the misgovernance of the UPA on various spheres. Recently, he came down heavily on the Prime Minister for being unable to find solutions to the prevailing economic situation. When the international ratings agency S&P downgraded India’s ratings, he again questioned the UPA for their blatant economic mismanagement, saying UPA’s policies were pushing India to the brink. In May this year when the Centre unilaterally hiked petrol prices by Rs. 7.50, it was Shri Modi who took a lead in criticizing the move.

Ever since he took over, Shri Modi laid great emphasis on improving the power situation in Gujarat. Due to the Jyotigram Yojana, all villages of Gujarat enjoy 24/7 power supply. But, Shri Modi did not stop there and called for research to enhance sources of renewable energy. Today, not only is Gujarat a power surplus state but also has made immense advances in the filed of renewable energy.

 

In April this year, he dedicated to the nation Asia’s largest solar park at Charanka. Gujarat produces 2/3rd of the solar energy produced in the country.  In the same month, he also dedicated to the nation India’s first ever canal top solar power project. Apart from providing clean energy, such an initiative would save lot of land and a crore litres of every year from evaporation. Shri Modi termed it as the ‘innovative merger of Jal Shakti and Urja Shakti.’ Gujarat is making advances in the field of tidal energy and thermal energy as well. Infact, Gujarat’s advances in renewable energy were praised by senior UPA Cabinet Minister Dr. Farooq Abdullah, who holds the renewable energy portfolio.

People from all corners of India are seen in Asansol. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol: PM Modi
PM Modi says on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Didi will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state
In Asansol, PM Modi says Mamata Banerjee has skipped several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues

 

Addressing a huge rally in West Bengal’s Asansol ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “TMC was broken after four phases of polls, `Didi' and `Bhatija' will be defeated by end of West Bengal elections. Voting of the fifth phase is also going on where people in large numbers are voting for the lotus flower to form the BJP government.”

“This region of Asansol has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From bicycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass - people come from all across India to work in these factories. In a way, Asansol is mini India. People from all corners of India are seen here. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol,” said PM Modi while addressing the public meeting.

Speaking on Mamata Didi’s anti-development agenda, PM Modi stated, “Mamata Banerjee is against development of Bengal. We will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. New investment will come in. Bengal needs a government of double engines, not those who are stopping development. The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by Didi's government.”

Coming down hard at TMC supremo, the PM asserted, “Her politics is not limited to just protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance.” The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues. He said, “In the last two meetings on Corona, the rest of the Chief Ministers came, but Didi did not. The rest of the Chief Ministers came to the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, but Didi did not. Such a huge campaign started in the country to clean river Ganga, but Didi did not even attend the meeting related to it.”

Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Asansol said that on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Mamata Banerjee will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state.

Taking about the leaked audio of Mamata Banerjee, the Prime Minister remarked, “You must have heard an audio tape on what happened in Cooch Behar yesterday. The audio was of Didi doing politics after the tragic death of 5 people. In this audio, the TMC leader of Cooch Behar was being asked by Didi to organize a rally with the dead bodies of the slain.”
