PM Modi campaigns in Haridwar, Uttarakhand
Dev Bhoomi Uttarakhand does not deserve a tainted and corrupt government: PM Modi
Atal ji created Uttarakhand with great hope and promise but successive governments did not fulfil his dreams: PM
Uttarakhand needs two engines, the state government under BJP and the Central government to take the state to new heights: PM
BJP is dedicated to open up new avenues for youth and ensure welfare of farmers: Shri Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a huge public meeting in Haridwar, Uttarakhand. Shri Modi expressed his gratitude to people for attending the rally in large numbers.

Shri Modi said that Uttarakhand was the Dev Bhoomi and did not deserve a tainted and corrupt government. “The corruption of the Government in Uttarakhand is very well known and even then the leadership is not bothered”, Shri Modi added further.

Prime Minister Modi said that questions before the people of Uttarakhand were not merely about a poll or a candidate but about creating a state all were proud of. “When a child turns sixteen or seventeen, he or she enters a very crucial phase of his or her life. The coming years are also crucial. The same way, Uttarakhand, which was born in 2000, is entering a very critical phase and the coming five years will be crucial for the state.”

Shri Modi recalled former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s contribution in formation of Uttarakhand. He opined, “Atal ji created Uttarakhand with great hope and promise. It was the Centre’s duty to look after the state. But the successive governments did not do so. They did not fulfill Atal ji’s dreams.”

Shri Modi also said that Centre wanted Uttarakhand to prosper and hence had allotted Rs. 12, 000 crores for connecting Char Dham with better roads. “Uttarakhand needs two engines, the state government under BJP and the Central government which will take the state to new heights”, the PM added.

Shri Modi added that development of Uttarakhand was a priority for the BJP. He said that BJP was dedicated to open up new avenues for youth and ensure welfare of farmers. Shri Modi also highlighted how Centre acted promptly when there was an earthquake recently. “When the earthquake came a few days ago, the PMO was closely monitoring the situation. Teams were immediately dispatched to the state. When there was a tragedy in Kedarnath and other parts of Uttarakhand, a Congress leader was overseas. He was not even here”, he added further.

Shri Modi opined that Uttarakhand was the land of the courageous. “The Congress does not respect the valour of the armed forces. They were in power but did not solve the matter of OROP for forty long years. When we came to power, we made it a point, listened to the troubles of the ex-servicemen and implemented the OROP.”

“Our armed forces conducted surgical strike across the LoC. They displayed their might. But some people are not even accepting it. They are asking for proofs! Is this their respect for our armed forces?” Shri Modi questioned.

Several BJP karyakartas and leaders attended the event.

I will be visiting USA from 22-25 September, 2021 at the invitation of His Excellency President Joe Biden of the United States of America

During my visit, I will review the India-U.S. Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with President Biden and exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest. I am also looking forward to meeting Vice President Kamala Harris to explore opportunities for cooperation between our two nations particularly in the area of science and technology.

I will participate in the first in-person Quad Leaders’ Summit along with President Biden, Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan. The Summit provides an opportunity to take stock of the outcomes of our Virtual Summit in March this year and identify priorities for future engagements based on our shared vision for the Indo-Pacific region.

I will also meet Prime Minister Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Suga of Japan to take stock of the strong bilateral relations with their respective countries and continue our useful exchanges on regional and global issues.

I will conclude my visit with an Address at the United Nations General Assembly focusing on the pressing global challenges including the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to combat terrorism, climate change and other important issues.

My visit to the US would be an occasion to strengthen the Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with USA, consolidate relations with our strategic partners – Japan and Australia - and to take forward our collaboration on important global issues.
