I have only one caste-‘poverty.’ I have lived through poverty and will work for empowering the poor till my last breath: PM Modi
While corruption and fraud characterized the governance record of the ‘Mahamilawat,’ in UP, on the other hand, transparency and speed characterized the BJP’s record: PM Modi in U.P.
The Mahamilawat’s election campaign is solely focused on making personal abuses on Modi, asking about Modi’s caste and his family background: Prime Minister Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a large public rally in Ballia constituency in Uttar Pradesh today. Addressing the massive rally, PM Modi responded to those asking about his caste and said, “I have only one caste-‘poverty.’ I have lived through poverty and will work for empowering the poor till my last breath.”

Hitting out at the ‘Mahamilawat’ alliance of Congress-SP-BSP in U.P. for their poor governance, PM Modi said, “I was the Chief Minister of Gujarat for a period longer than the combined time of ‘Bua-Babua’ in U.P but still the people of U.P remember how these parties ruined the state’s economy with their endemic corruption and lawlessness. Their election campaigning is focused on making personal abuses on Modi, asking about Modi’s caste and his family background. Unlike them, I have never sought support on the basis of castes in my long political career. I have only one caste: ‘poverty,’ that is why, I stood up against poverty always.”

Describing how the BJP government under his leadership since 2014 has worked continuously for the empowerment of the people, PM Modi said that while corruption, fraud and loot characterized the governance track-record of the ‘Mahamilawat,’ efficiency, transparency and speed characterized the BJP’s track record in the last five years. PM Modi described numerous infrastructure and development projects started in Eastern UP and North-East India which will significantly improve ease of mobility in these areas while also building next-gen infrastructure to support new technologies like 4G and broadband services to the remotest corners of the country.

In order to commemorate the 125th birth anniversary of the great freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and as part of the year long celebrations, the government has decided to install a grand statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at India Gate. The statue, made of granite, shall be a fitting tribute to the immense contribution of Netaji in our freedom struggle, and would be a symbol of the country’s indebtedness to him. Till the work for the statue is completed, a hologram statue of Netaji will be present at the same place. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will unveil the hologram statue of Netaji at India Gate on 23rd January, 2022 at around 6 PM.                         

The hologram statue will be powered by a 30,000 lumens 4K projector. An invisible, high gain, 90% transparent holographic screen has been erected in such a way so that it is not visible to visitors. The 3D image of Netaji will be projected on it to create the effect of a hologram. The size of the hologram statue is 28 feet in height and 6 feet in width.

During the programme, Prime Minister will also confer the Subhas Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskars, for the years 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 in the investiture ceremony. A total of seven awards will be presented during the ceremony.

Union government has instituted the annual Subhas Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskar to recognize and honour the invaluable contribution and selfless service rendered by individuals and organisations in India in the field of disaster management. The award is announced every year on 23rd January. The award carries a cash prize of Rs. 51 lakh and a certificate in case of an institution and Rs. 5 lakh and a certificate in case of an individual.

It has been the constant endeavour of the Prime Minister to honour the freedom fighters in a befitting manner. A special focus of these efforts has been on the legendary freedom fighter and visionary leader, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Several steps have been taken in this regard, including the announcement that his birth anniversary will be celebrated as Parakram Diwas every year. In this spirit, Republic Day celebrations will begin a day early, from 23rd January.
