The nation has witnessed rapid development since 2014 which is why people are again voting for a BJP government: PM Modi
Why hasn’t Behenji’s BSP withdrawn support from Congress government in Rajasthan despite the gruesome rape of a Dalit woman there: PM Modi in U.P.
Taking historic decisions requires a political resolve to work for the country which cannot come from dynastic parties like the Congress or SP-BSP: Prime Minister Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed two major rallies in Kushinagar and Deoria in Uttar Pradesh today. Addressing the rallies, PM Modi said, “The nation witnessed rapid development at an unprecedented level during the last five years which is why the people are again voting for another term for a strong, clean and decisive BJP government to lead the country in the coming years.”

PM Modi attacked the ‘Mahamilawat’ alliance of SP-BSP in U.P and said that their alliance has been made not to serve the people of U.P., this alliance has been made to fulfil the hunger for power within these parties and their leaders. He added, “Recently a Dalit lady from Rajasthan was raped in the Congress-ruled Rajasthan. However, despite knowing about this case, Behenji’s BSP hasn’t withdrawn its support from the Congress government there. Is the pain and humiliation of this Dalit woman not enough for Behenji to part with her allies? Incidents like these demonstrate the true faces of such parties who have only fooled the people of U.P. whenever they came to power.” 



Describing how the BJP government since 2014 has achieved rapid strides in enhancing the lives of ordinary Indians, PM Modi said, “Since taking office in 2014, we not only bought stringent laws against corruption and black money but also have actively pursued fugitive economic offenders even in foreign countries. This government constructed record numbers of highways, roads and next-generation infrastructure as well as introduced schemes like the Ayushman Bharat Yojana, Ujjwala Yojana and Swachh Bharat Abhiyan to provide universal access to basic services to India’s most poor. Such decisions can never be taken by those who were born with silver spoons in their mouth and whose political career is based on their lineage. Taking such historic decisions requires a political resolve to work for the country which cannot come from dynastic, opportunistic parties like the Congress or SP-BSP.”

PM's departure statement ahead of his visit to France, UAE and Bahrain
August 21, 2019

I will be visiting France, UAE and Bahrain during 22-26 August 2019.  

My visit to France reflects the strong strategic partnership, which our two countries deeply value, and share. On 22-23 August 2019, I would have bilateral meetings in France, including a summit interaction with President Macron and a meeting with Prime Minister Philippe. I would also interact with the Indian community and dedicate a memorial to the Indian victims of the two Air India crashes in France in the 1950s & 1960s.

Later, on 25-26 August, I will participate in the G7 Summit meetings as Biarritz Partner at the invitation of President Macron in the Sessions on Environment, Climate, Oceans and on Digital Transformation. 

India and France have excellent bilateral ties, which are reinforced by a shared vision to cooperate for further enhancing peace and prosperity for our two countries and the world at large. Our strong strategic and economic partnership is complemented by a shared perspective on major global concerns such as terrorism, climate change, etc.  I am confident that this visit will further promote our long-standing and valued friendship with France for mutual prosperity, peace and progress.

During the visit to the United Arab Emirates on 23-24 August, I look forward to discuss with His Highness the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, entire gamut of bilateral relations and regional and international issues of mutual interest.

I also look forward to jointly release the stamp to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi along with His Highness the Crown Prince. It will be an honour to receive the ‘Order of Zayed’, the highest civilian decoration conferred by the UAE government, during this visit. I will also formally launch RuPay card to expand the network of cashless transactions abroad.

Frequent high-level interactions between India and UAE testify to our vibrant relations. UAE is our third-largest trade partner and fourth-largest exporter of crude oil for India. The qualitative enhancement of these ties is among one of our foremost foreign policy achievements. The visit would further strengthen our multifaceted bilateral ties with UAE.

I will also be visiting the Kingdom of Bahrain from 24-25, August 2019.  This would be the first ever Prime Ministerial visit from India to the Kingdom. I look forward to discussing with Prime Minister His Royal Highness Prince Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the ways to further boost our bilateral  relations and share views on regional and international issues of mutual interest. I would also be meeting His Majesty the King of Bahrain Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and other leaders.

I would also take the opportunity to interact with the Indian diaspora. I will be blessed to be present at the formal beginning of the re-development of  the temple of Shreenathji- the oldest in the Gulf region – in the wake of the auspicious festival of Janmashtami. I am confident that this visit would further deepen our relationship across the sectors.
