We must think of ways how #Gandhi150 can inspire people across the nation: PM Modi

Emphasising the role of BJP Karyakartas in expanding the reach of the government's welfare schemes, the Prime Minister said, “the way party workers are helping to implement many development projects in Varanasi, it is a matter of pride and satisfaction for me.”

Replying to one Karyakarta’s question on Vishwanath Dham, PM Modi said, “now, with the blessings of Baba Vishwanath, the resolve taken by the Kashi people will not only ease the devotees of Baba Bholenath, but they will also experience the divinity as well as the magnificence.”

“You have witnessed the streets of Varanasi. These streets have their own beauty, they have their own importance, they are the glory of Kashi,” he added furthermore.

While interacting with one of the Karyakartas from Rohania as a part of ‘Deepotsav Karyakarta Samvad’, the PM said, “when our government was formed, the sanitation coverage in the country was less than 40 percent, but within five years we have achieved the target of 100 percent in rural areas. Now all the 90 wards of Varanasi have been declared open defecation free.” He said that Swachhata was not merely a project. It was not about tokenism. It was about behavioural change and this movement must go on.

He remarked, “Ayushman Bharat Yojana has made a positive impact on lives of people. More than 50 lakh people have taken advantage of Ayushman Bharat. Over 10 crore people have been issued e-cards in the country. In Varanasi alone more than 1 lakh 65 thousand people have been given golden cards under Ayushman Bharat Yojana.”

PM Modi credited 130 crore citizens of the country for India's rising global profile and said that respect for India has increased significantly at the world stage.

In a video interaction with BJP Karyakarta from Varanasi, PM Modi reaffirmed the BJP's commitment towards development. Prime Minister Modi also greeted BJP Karyakartas on upcoming festivals.
