Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hit out at the Congress for insulting Gujarat. He alleged that the Congress only worked for welfare of rich and never thought about well being of the poor section of the society.

The PM slated, “The same Mani Shankar Aiyar, who insulted Gujarat, held secret meetings with Pakistan High Commissioner. What was the reason? Why are people who previously held high posts in military-intelligence establishment of Pakistan writing that we should help make Ahmed Patel the CM.”

He also said that with the coming of the DMIC, Banaskantha will become a transport hub which would ensure opportunities to the youth of this region.

At Sanand, PM Modi lashed out at the Congress party and spoke at length about infrastructure development in the region. He highlighted how several people were getting employment as a result of factories running in the region. He also highlighted several aspects of agricultural growth and welfare measures for the farming community like neem coating of urea, soil health cards, drip irrigation etc.

He mentioned how law and order situation in the state improved significantly under the BJP led governments.

The PM also said that it was due to demonetisation that the Congress was in tears. He affirmed, “Demonetisation was aimed at attacking black money and corruption and since those who looted people are facing the heat, they are now in tears.”

 

At Kaalol, the Prime Minister said that the BJP was fighting these elections on the issue of development whereas Congress was back to their old tricks. He said that a generational shift had not brought in a new political culture for the party and they relied on their same divide and rule politics.

“With the Mantra of Shanti, Ekta and Sadbhavana, BJP Governments have taken Gujarat to new heights of progress. A society that is united and harmonious can progress well”, the PM remarked further.

PM Modi said that electrification of 18,000 villages was being ensured in mission mode across the country. “When I first spoke about my intent to ensure electrification of villages in Gujarat, the state Congress leaders mocked me. They said it can never happen, they also asked me- you have not headed a Panchayat how can you promise this. We proved them wrong, ensured villages get power”, he added.

The PM also took a jibe at the Congress and said they were involved in dynastic politics. He added, “There are some people in Delhi whose sole Mission is 'Parivar Bachao.' These are the same people who, in an hour of voting yesterday, started saying EVMs are hacked thanks to Blue Tooths! Some logic this is.”

 

 

Speaking at a rally in Vadodara, PM Modi elaborated that the Gujarat elections were about ‘Vikas’ agenda of the BJP versus Congress’ politics of ‘Vinash.’

Prime Minister lauded the country’s armed forces and Jammu and Kashmir police for the surgical strike and tackling terror outfits in Jammu and Kashmir. He hailed the role of J&K police, BSF, CRPF and the army for their effectively countering the terrorists who attacked a bus headed to the Amarnath shrine.

 

Taking a pot shot at the Congress party, the PM said, “When our soldiers were fighting in Doklam, Congress leaders were meeting the Chinese Ambassador. When asked why, he said - to get a sense of what is happening in Doklam. Now, you tell me - in such times should we trust our authorities more or the Chinese!”

Shri Modi also pointed out how demonetisation unearthed black money and helped crackdown shell companies across the country.

On infrastructure development, the PM hit out at the Congress for spreading lies. He said, “My Government is for the poor. I can't understand the lies Congress keeps saying. When we build a state of the art bus terminus for Vadodara, do we do it because Mukesh Ambani, Tata or Birla uses it? No we make this to serve the poor. Our lives are devoted to serving the poor.”

The PM said that it was important to safeguard rights of poor and middle class. In this context he shed light on several welfare measures like ensuring gas connections and building toilets for the poor.

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.”
