PM Narendra Modi today highlighted several instances of Congress’ mis-governance and their ignorance towards people of Gujarat.

Shri Modi elaborated that Congress had lost in the first round and were not even thinking about the second round as they knew people here would support the BJP. He added, “Congress has now taken to excuses. Their leaders and cheerleaders are blaming EVMs, including saying they are hacked using Bluetooth.”

He highlighted how Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, former CM Anandiben Patel, other ministers, karyakartas and the PM himself reviewed and ensured relief work for welfare of people when the region faced floods. He accused the Congress and its leaders to have run away from helping people in times of crises. “Gujarat was battling floods but Congress MLAs chose to spend time in Bengaluru resorts”, he added.

Shri Modi remarked, “BJP lives in the hearts of people of Gujarat.”

The PM also took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Aaloo ki factory’ comment and said, “Our farmers work hard and grow potato. If at all the Congress comes to power, there will be no need to do that because their leader says we will produce potatoes in factories! Congress' basic knowledge about agriculture is so poor.”

He lambasted at the Congress party for terming the BJP as a party dedicated to the rich. He affirmed that the BJP governments in the state had always worked for welfare and upliftment poor and would continue to do so. “During peak summer, I would go to the villages of Gujarat and ask parents to educate their children. Whose children were they? Were they Ambani's children? No. They were children of the poor. We are working for poor…When we went to the farmers, did Krishi Mahotsav, we did not go out helping the rich. We went among the poor. Sadly, Congress leaders born with golden spoons will never understand what poverty is.”

The PM shed light on several welfare measures that have transformed lives of people in Gujarat like Sujalam Sufalam Yojana, 108 ambulance services. He also spoke at length about neem coating of urea that immensely benefitted farmers and reduction in prices of stents.

At Nadiad, the PM said that solutions to all troubles were in development. He spoke about several development initiatives undertaken in the state in the last two decades. He rubbished Congress’ claims of lack of development in the state and said that they were only spreading lies.

“My every moment is devoted to serve the 125 crore Indians”, he added further.

The Prime Minister mentioned about the Union Government’s financial inclusion scheme – Jan Dhan Yojana and how nearly 30 crore accounts were opened. He also spoke about how the social security schemes were benefitting several lives.

At Ahmedabad, PM Modi said that India was progressing at fast pace and the world was witnessing the strides the country had been making. “If India is making a mark on the world stage it is due to the 125 crore people of India”, he added.


Shri Modi alleged that UPA did everything possible to derail Gujarat's development journey. He said, “To put gas pipelines in Gujarat's villages (when I had the required budget also), the UPA got worried and did everything to stop that. I had to go to the Supreme Court.”


The PM mentioned that Gujarat had two development engines - one in Gandhinagar and the other in Delhi. The PM said, “Do you see this Sabarmati River? There were circuses held earlier, now see the riverfront. This is development. But for the Congress, Vikas is only where they can make money.” In this context, he spoke about the Pragati initiative that helped accelerate the pace of development.


The PM spoke about his vision of connecting waterways, government’s stress on Swachhata and the startup sector.

PM Modi addresses a vivacious crowd in Pataliputra, Bihar

Prime Minister Narendra Modi graced the historic land of Pataliputra, Bihar, vowing to tirelessly drive the nation’s growth and prevent the opposition from dividing the country on the grounds of inequality.

As PM Modi further delved into his spirited address, he praised the dedication of BJP workers, attributing the party's success to their tireless efforts. He humorously noted the popularity of Maner ladoos, urging supporters to have them ready for June 4th. PM Modi also pointed out that the opposition's complaints about EVMs are the best indicator of NDA's impending victory. He confidently declared that new records would be set in Pataliputra and across the nation, echoing the sentiment, "Phir Ek Baar...Modi Sarkar!"

PM Modi highlighted the stark contrast between his vision and the opposition's focus. On one side, he is dedicated to building a Viksit and Aatmanirbhar Bharat by 2047, “working tirelessly to enhance national security and modernize infrastructure.” On the other side, “the INDI Alliance has no agenda but to criticize Modi and cater to their vote bank. The choice is clear: progress and development with Modi, or constant negativity with the INDI Alliance.”

PM Modi emphasized the importance of the upcoming election, not just for choosing MPs but for selecting the right PM. He underscored India's need for a strong leader who can showcase the nation's power on the global stage. Contrasting this vision, the PM highlighted the INDI Alliance’s plan to deliver five different PMs in five years, “The contenders? A parade of family members: sons and daughters from the Gandhi, SP, National Conference, NCP, TMC, AAP, fake Shiv Sena, and RJD families. Their aim is to play musical chairs with the Prime Minister's seat, driven by dynastic politics rather than national interest.”

In his address, PM Modi also underscored Bihar's historic role in championing social justice and the right to reservation for SC/ST/OBC communities. However, he revealed a bitter truth. “The RJD-Congress and their allies are betraying these very communities. The Constitution and Baba Saheb Ambedkar clearly state there should be no reservation based on religion. Yet, the RJD-Congress are conspiring to allocate SC/ST/OBC quotas to their vote bank, undermining constitutional principles,” he remarked.

PM Modi also exposed this betrayal, stating, “Every caste, including Yadav, Kurmi, Kushwaha, Kalwar, Teli, Suri, Kanu, Nishad, Paswan, Ravidas, and Musahar, has been robbed of their rightful reservation. These actions are not just unconstitutional but also a grave injustice to the children of Dalits, backward classes, and tribals, whose admission quotas have been unfairly reduced in favour of Muslims.” This, he emphasized, is a stark violation of the principles of social justice and the Constitution.

PM Modi shared his understanding of what it means to have one's rights taken away. This empathy drives his commitment to ensuring the poor receive their due. He reminded the crowd of the days “when Congress allowed grains to rot while refusing to feed the poor”, contrasting it with his own “policy of opening warehouse doors to every needy person, ensuring no mother stays awake worrying about feeding her child.”

PM Modi also announced plans to build more pucca houses, equipped with toilets, electricity, cheap gas cylinders, and tap water. He mentioned about the PM Suryaghar Yojana, which aims to reduce electricity bills to zero and install solar panels, allowing families to use free electricity and even earn by selling the surplus to the government.

As he concluded his speech, PM Modi urged everyone to visit local temples and seek blessings for a Viksit Bharat. He passionately encouraged the crowd to vote for the BJP, saying, "Let's ensure victory for a stronger, prosperous nation!"
