Only a strong government can ensure a nation’s security, which in turn is essential for its long-term development: PM Modi
The BJP-led NDA governments have always demonstrated their paramount commitments to strengthening national security: PM Modi in U.P.
The entire nation suffered greatly under ‘Mahamilawati’ governments of Congress-SP-BSP but still they say ‘Hua Toh Hua’: Prime Minister Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed two major election rallies in Robertsganj and Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh today. At the rallies PM Modi spoke about the importance of having a strong and responsive government to ensure the security and development of a nation and said that every vote in favour of the BJP will result in the formation of such a government again post-elections.

PM Modi congratulated the efforts of all the scientists and leaders involved in the successful testing of India’s nuclear missiles 21 years ago under the able leadership of former NDA PM Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He added, “Strong and bold decisions on national security such as nuclear testing or Operation Shakti can only be conducted by a government that treats the nation’s security as its priority. The BJP-led NDA governments have always demonstrated their paramount commitments to strengthening national security as a top priority which has greatly benefitted the people of our country as well as enhanced our reputation as a strong nation globally.”

Tearing apart the Congress and its ‘Mahamilawat’ allies for neglecting India’s development with their poor governance and endemic corruption, Prime Minister Modi said, “The people of Uttar Pradesh vividly remember how weak and opportunist governments formed by Congress-SP-BSP ruined the state’s potential, its economy and law and order with their rampant corruption, divisive politics of votebank appeasement and promoting nepotism and dynastic politics for ten years in to the 21st century. However, these parties have no qualms about their misdeeds; rather than accepting their mistakes, they say ‘Hua Toh Hua’ (What’s happened has happened). Such justifying statements of the Congress and its Bua-Babua allies shows the utter contempt they have for the welfare of the people of U.P. Their prime agenda in this election is not discussing about issues like national security or development, it is about abusing Modi and grabbing power by any means possible.”

Concluding his wide-ranging address to the overwhelming crowd, PM Modi described how since coming to power in 2014 and 2017 respectively, BJP governments at Centre and U.P have achieved significant milestones in improving the lives of ordinary people through schemes like Ayushman Bharat, Ujjwala Yojana and Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. He assured his supporters that with the continued support of UP, the BJP governments will take the state to newer heights of development and prosperity to make the dream of a ‘New India’ come true for every Indian.

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.
