PM Narendra Modi today addressed a public meeting in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Beginning his address, the PM mentioned about the rail accident in Kanpur and said that it was unfortunate. “Relief work is going on in full swing. Centre will also investigate the matter. My thoughts are with the bereaved families. I wish those injured a speedy recovery”, he added.

PM Modi spoke about various development initiatives launched today. Shri Modi said that NDA Government has initiated several steps for the welfare of people across the country. He said that the Centre is committed to provide homes to people by the time India celebrates 75th year of independence. Shri Modi said, “We want every Indian to have a house by 2022 when India celebrates 75 years since attaining freedom. When we are undertaking this initiative to build houses, it also means so many people get employment.”

PM Modi also unveiled railway projects that would boost railway infrastructure and employment.

Prime Minister Modi highlighted how Ujjwala Yojana is benefitting people in rural areas by making those areas smoke-free. He also took note of the progress made in rural electrification. “Years after Independence so many villages lack access to electricity. We are working to change that”, he added.

Speaking about demonetization of high value currency notes, PM Narendra Modi said that the decision taken by the Government on currency notes is in the interest of the poor and the middle class. He said that the move would benefit the honest citizens of the country. Shri Modi said, “This decision on currency notes was not taken to trouble anyone. This decision was taken for safeguarding the honest people’s interest. It was taken to secure the future of our youth. But a few people whose money is stuck in chit fund scams and those supporting them are feeling the heat.”

Shri Narendra Modi remarked that five hundred and thousand rupee notes ceasing to be legal tender has adversely affected those in fake currency rackets and narcotics. “Withdrawal of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes have choked funding of terror groups”, he added further. PM Modi urged citizens to cooperate and follow the guidelines set by the banks. Shri Modi said that NDA Government at Centre is dedicated to overall development of the country.

Several party karyakartas and Union Ministers were present during the public meeting.

A discussion with the political parties of Jammu-Kashmir under the leadership of the Hon'ble Prime Minister has just ended. This has been a very positive effort towards the development and strengthening of democracy in Jammu-Kashmir. The meeting took place in a very cordial atmosphere. All the participants expressed their full allegiance to the democracy of India and the Constitution of India.

The Home Minister apprised all the leaders of the improvement in the situation in Jammu-Kashmir.

The Prime Minister listened to every party’s arguments and suggestions with all seriousness and he appreciated the fact that all the people's representatives shared their point of view with an open mind. The Prime Minister laid special emphasis on two important issues in the meeting. He said that we all have to work together to take democracy to the grassroots in Jammu-Kashmir. Secondly, there should be all-round development in Jammu-Kashmir and development should reach every region and every community. It is necessary that there should be an atmosphere of cooperation and public participation.

Hon'ble Prime Minister also pointed out that elections to Panchayati Raj and other local bodies have been successfully held in Jammu-Kashmir. There is improvement in the security situation. About 12,000 crore rupees have directly reached the panchayats after the conclusion of elections. This has accelerated the pace of development in the villages.

The Prime Minister said that we have to approach the next important step related to the democratic process in Jammu-Kashmir i.e. assembly elections. The process of delimitation has to be completed expeditiously so that every region and every section gets adequate political representation in the assembly. It is necessary to give a proper representation to the Dalits, backwards and people living in tribal areas.

There was a detailed discussion in the meeting regarding the participation of everybody in the process of delimitation. All the parties present in the meeting have agreed to participate in this process.

The Prime Minister also emphasized the cooperation of all the stakeholders to take Jammu-Kashmir on the path of peace and prosperity. He said that Jammu-Kashmir is moving out of the vicious circle of violence and moving towards stability. New hope and new confidence have emerged among the people of Jammu-Kashmir.

The PM also said that we will have to work day and night to strengthen this trust and work together to improve this confidence. Today's meeting is an important step for strengthening the democracy and the development and prosperity of Jammu-Kashmir. I thank all the political parties for attending today's meeting.

Thanks
