I pay heartfelt tributes to Dr. BR Ambedkar on his birth anniversary: PM Modi in J&K
The people of Jammu and Kashmir are eager to vote in the ongoing elections and strengthen democracy in the state: PM Modi
The alliance of Congress, PDP and NC in J&K is one of opportunism and hunger for power: Prime Minister Modi in Kathua

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a big rally in Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir today.

Addressing the crowd, PM Modi paid tributes to the great son of soil, Dr. BR Ambedkar on his birth anniversary today.

PM Modi was all praises for the people of Jammu and Baramulla for turning out to vote in large numbers in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections and said, “The huge voting percentages coming out from Jammu and Kashmir reiterated the fact that the people here want to strengthen the democratic structure in the state. They have given a befitting reply to the anti-India and separatist voices as well as to the ‘Maha-Milawati’ gang who have always doubted the people’s abilties and willingness to vote for elections in India.”

PM Modi further lashed out at the Congress and its regional allies PDP and NC for forging an opportunist alliance that stands against the interests of the country and said, “The recent statements given by one of Congress’ allies here asking for a separate Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir reveals how this alliance goes against our country. This alliance is an alliance of opprtunitism and hunger for power and not to provide better opportunities of life for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.” In this context, Prime Minister Modi further took potshots at the Congress for the absence of its CM in Punjab to pay respects at the official Jallianwala Bagh memorial yesterday in which the Vice-President of India was also present and said that such actions were not only disrespectful to the martyrs of the massacre but also revealed the petty politics of the Congress leaders.

 

 

 

Highlighting the importance of voting in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, PM Modi asserted, “Your vote in 2014 ensured long-term progress and infrastructural development for J&K. Your votes made it possible for us to construct roads, bridges, tunnels, bunkers, dams and educational institutions like AIIMS, medical and engineering colleges in Jammu and Kashmir. This ‘Chowkidar’ (PM Modi) has been working continuously over the last five years to ensure the fruits of development reach everyone equally and we will continue to work with our mantra of ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas’ in the future as well.”

PM Modi addresses a public meeting in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand

Congress and JMM don't understand even the basics of development: PM Modi in Jamshedpur
Common man remains poor while Congress & JMM filled their homes with black money: PM in Jamshedpur
Congress has been the mother of corruption: PM Modi in Jamshedpur
Congress and JMM have no interest in the country's industries: PM Modi in Jamshedpur
Dynastic parties like Congress consider the country their property: PM Modi in Jamshedpur

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a dynamic public meeting in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, highlighting the significance of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and the crucial issues at stake. Addressing an enthusiastic crowd, PM Modi underscored his commitment to the holistic development of Jharkhand and the nation.

PM Modi articulated the fundamental issues that should shape the electoral discourse. "The Lok Sabha elections are about shaping the future of the country. How will the future of the country be determined? I ask you, should there be a discussion about the economy in the elections or not? Should there be a discussion about industries and small industries in the elections or not? Should there be a discussion about national security in the elections or not? Should there be a discussion about agriculture and forest produce in the elections or not? Should there be a discussion about new opportunities for the youth in the elections or not? Should there be a discussion about highways, expressways, and infrastructure in the elections or not?"

Highlighting the disconnect between opposition parties and these vital issues, PM Modi criticized Congress and JMM. "But Congress and JMM have no interest in any of these issues. They don't understand even the basics of development. What is their method? Tell lies. What are their issues? They will examine the property of the poor, and seize it. They will take away SC-ST-OBC reservations. They will give Modi new abuses every day. They cannot think beyond this. That is why the INDI Alliance lies to you. The whole country knows their truth. That is why the country is saying, ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar."

PM Modi lamented the paradox of Jharkhand's wealth and poverty. "A state like Jharkhand is so rich in mineral wealth. Yet, there is so much poverty here. It is unfortunate. The common man remains poor while Congress and JMM have amassed black money in their homes."

He denounced the rampant corruption by Congress, JMM, and RJD, which has plagued Jharkhand. "Parties like Congress, JMM, and RJD have looted our Jharkhand at every opportunity. Congress has been the mother of corruption. Congress has set records of loot in scams like 2G and coal. Look at RJD. They invented scams like land for jobs. JMM has learned these traits from Congress and RJD. JMM has done land scams in Jharkhand. And whose lands did they grab? They grabbed the lands of our poor tribals! They even tried to grab army land. The mountains of cash are being recovered from their homes. Whose money is that? It is your money. It is the money of innocent tribals, which these people have looted."

In an emotional call to action, PM Modi urged the people to reject corrupt parties and support BJP's vision. "The whole world knows that industries are necessary for the progress of the country. The name of Jamshedpur itself is after Jamsetji Tata. However, the Congress party considers entrepreneurs as enemies of the country. Their leaders say we attack businessmen who do not give us money. This means parties like Congress and JMM have no interest in the country's industries. They are only interested in their corruption and extortion."

He drew a stark comparison to Naxalism, criticizing the extortion tactics of opposition parties. "Isn’t this the exact Naxalite method of Congress? Naxalites also did not let any businessman work without extortion. Today Modi has broken the back of Naxalites. So now Congress and JMM have taken over the responsibility of extortion. Will you give even a single vote to such Congress-JMM?"

PM Modi also emphasized the transformative impact of BJP's governance. "Parties like Congress never cared about you. They gave the false slogan of 'Garibi Hatao' for 60 years. It is Modi who has lifted 250 lakhs of poor out of poverty. Congress did not let the poor enter banks. Modi got Jan Dhan accounts opened for 520 lakh people. Lakhs of poor in our country did not even have a roof over their heads. Modi gave 4 lakh poor people a permanent house.”

“In the Congress government, 18,000 villages in the country were living in darkness. Modi has worked to bring electricity to every village in the country. Congress deprived millions of homes in the country of clean water. It is Modi who is working to provide tap water to every household," he added.

Urging the people to safeguard democracy and reject dynastic politics, PM Modi said, "Dynastic parties consider the country their property. The Shehzada of Congress fled from Wayanad to contest elections in Raebareli. He was telling everyone that this was my mother's seat, his mother also went to Raebareli to campaign for him. There she said, I am giving you my son. They couldn’t find a worker to hand over, only a son."

In his closing remarks, PM Modi reiterated the significance of the upcoming vote. "Your one vote on May 25th will decide the fate of Jharkhand and the country. If you press the lotus button, Modi will be strengthened in Delhi.”
