The AAP bought in ‘Nakaampanthi’ in governance in Delhi; they came to change the nation, they changed themselves over time: PM Modi
The people of India still remember how this former PM used Indian navy and army vessels as his personal taxi: PM Modi in Delhi
The BJP government at the Centre has constantly worked to ensure greater, better mobility for the people of this city: Prime Minister Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed his third huge rally for the day in the nation’s capital New Delhi this evening. Speaking at the rally, PM Modi attacked the ruling Aam Aadmi Party government saying, “The AAP bought in ‘Nakaampanthi’ in governance as soon as it came to power in Delhi. While they came to change the nation, they changed themselves over time and now only represent a failed model of development as well as support for the ‘Tukde Tukde gang.”

 

Hitting out at the dynastic politics of the Congress for compromising on the nation’s development, PM Modi said, “Recently when I gave a statement about the misdeeds of a former Congress PM, his dynasts started crying foul and calling me names. But why then do the heirs of these dynasts ask for votes from the people if they cannot face the heat over their ancestors’ actions? The people of India still remember how this former PM used Indian navy and army vessels as his personal taxi and took them along for personal use while going on vacations. With such actions to account for, there is no doubt that the people do not associate themselves with the Congress and its allies anymore.”

Describing how his government had worked to improve the quality of life and reduce pollution in Delhi, PM Modi said, “Be it the completion of Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressways or the starting of cleaning projects for Yamuna river or the introduction of GST to simplify doing business in India, the BJP government at the Centre has constantly worked to ensure greater, better mobility for the people of this city while also improving their standards of living. With every vote cast in favour of the BJP on the 12th, this commitment to work for the people will further strengthen our resolve in this regard.”

Prime Minister participated virtually in the 21st Meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), and through video-message in the Joint SCO-CSTO Outreach Session on Afghanistan.

The 21st meeting of the SCO Council of Heads of State was held on 17 September 2021 in Dushanbe in hybrid format.  

The meeting was chaired by H.E. Emomali Rahmon, the President of Tajikistan.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed the Summit via video-link.  At Dushanbe, India was represented by External Affairs Minister, Dr. S. Jaishankar.  

In his address, Prime Minister highlighted the problems caused by growing radicalisation and extremism in the broader SCO region, which runs counter to the history of the region as a bastion of moderate and progressive cultures and values.  

He noted that recent developments in Afghanistan could further exacerbate this trend towards extremism.

He suggested that SCO could work on an agenda to promote moderation and scientific and rational thought, which would be especially relevant for the youth of the region.  

He also spoke about India's experience of using digital technologies in its development programmes, and offered to share these open-source solutions with other SCO members.

While speaking about the importance of building connectivity in the region, Prime Minister stressed that connectivity projects should be transparent, participatory and consultative, in order to promote mutual trust.  

The SCO Summit was followed by an Outreach session on Afghanistan between SCO and the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO).  Prime Minister participated in the outreach session through a video-message.

In the video message, Prime Minister suggested that SCO could develop a code of conduct on 'zero tolerance' towards terrorism in the region, and highlighted the risks of drugs, arms and human trafficking from Afghanistan.  Noting the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, he reiterated India's solidarity with the Afghan people.
