Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a public meeting in Himachal Pradesh today saluted the farsightedness of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Inaugurating the power projects in the state, PM Modi said that the projects would give ‘Urja Shakti’ and transform the state.

The Prime Minister remarked that Himachal Pradesh was not only ‘Devbhoomi’ but also a ‘Veerbhoomi’. “People hailing from this land have left no stone unturned in protecting the nation”, he added. The PM stated that the valour of our armed forces could not be forgotten and the entire country has been discussing that.

The Prime Minister noted OROP that was pending for over forty years have been implemented by the NDA Government and benefitted several ex-servicemen.

He remarked that today at Centre there was a Government dedicated to development of the country. PM Modi said that when NDA Government came to power, it initiated several stalled projects worth crores of rupees.  Shri Modi stated, “When we assumed office, we saw there were so many projects incomplete. They were decided long back but not much happened. Projects costing Rs 34 crore 3 decades ago costs more than Rs. 2000 crore now. Had the projects been completed on time imagine the gains!”

PM Modi also remembered former Himachal Pradesh CMs Shri Shanta Kumar and Shri Dhumal Kumar and noted their contributions towards welfare of the state and its people. “Shanta Kumar ji is popularly remembered as 'Paani Wale CM' and Dhumal Ji as 'Grameen Sadak Wale CM'”, he said.

The Prime Minister highlighted several initiatives of the Central Government aimed at empowering and transforming lives of people across the country.

“We are working towards construction of toilets and hydro projects, rural roads and railways connectivity. We are also giving impetus to power projects and power conservation.”

The Prime Minister also spoke about Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana that aims to benefit the farmers and protect them from adversities. “Government of India is working very hard on strengthening the food processing facilities so that the farmer is benefitted”, Shri Modi added.

Several party leaders and karyakartas were present during the public meeting.
