PM Modi addressed two huge rallies in West Bengal’s Asansol and Gangarampur ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls today. He said, “TMC was broken after four phases of polls, `Didi' and `Bhatija' will be defeated by end of West Bengal elections. Voting of the fifth phase is also going on where people in large numbers are voting for the lotus flower to form the BJP government.”

“This region of Asansol has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From bicycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass - people come from all across India to work in these factories. In a way, Asansol is mini India. People from all corners of India are seen here. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol,” said PM Modi while addressing the public meeting.

Speaking on Mamata Didi’s anti-development agenda, PM Modi stated, “Mamata Banerjee is against development of Bengal. We will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. New investment will come in. Bengal needs a government of double engines, not those who are stopping development. The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by Didi's government.”

Coming down hard at TMC supremo, the PM asserted, “Her politics is not limited to just protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance.” The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues. He said, “In the last two meetings on Corona, the rest of the Chief Ministers came, but Didi did not. The rest of the Chief Ministers came to the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, but Didi did not. Such a huge campaign started in the country to clean river Ganga, but Didi did not even attend the meeting related to it.”

Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Asansol said that on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Mamata Banerjee will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state.

Taking about the leaked audio of Mamata Banerjee, the Prime Minister remarked, “You must have heard an audio tape on what happened in Cooch Behar yesterday. The audio was of Didi doing politics after the tragic death of 5 people. In this audio, the TMC leader of Cooch Behar was being asked by Didi to organize a rally with the dead bodies of the slain.”

Addressing his second rally of the day in Gangarampur, PM Modi said, “Gangarampur has 2 holy names, that define our culture, in its own name... But it seems Didi hates names of both Lord Ram and river Ganga. She abuses Indians living in areas near river Ganga. She insults their beliefs, food, language & clothes.”

Attacking Mamata Banerjee for her mis-governance, he said, “Appeasement does not lead to better roads, schools-colleges, industry, employment and more. The dilapidated roads in this region, the lack of hospitals and lack of irrigational facilities is proof enough. In the last 10 years, Didi's government has only promoted locking up of industries and people leaving Bengal for other opportunities. She has only concentrated on betterment of her nephew and filling her own coffers.”

In Gangarampur, PM Modi said that he always addressed her as 'didi' but she abused me from public platforms. “I have no problem with Didi's abuses. Didi, curse me as much as you want, but at least don't forget the culture of Bengal. The people of the country take pride in the rich heritage of Bengal, the eloquence of its people.”

Slamming Didi for nepotism, the Prime Minister reiterated, “TMC government has suppressed the aspirations of every young son and daughter of West Bengal. She, for the career of her nephew has put future of millions of Bengal's youth at stake.”

“BJP's double engine government is making all efforts to make the region an international trading hub, to strengthen the rich heritage of this place, all sort of tourism potential will be harnessed. Maa Ganga has blessed the BJP everywhere in her vast aanchal. After May 2, West Bengal is also going to be added to it,” PM Modi said while concluding his rally in Gangarampur.

नमो बुद्धाय!

नमो गुरुभ्यो !

आदरणीय राष्ट्रपति जी,

अन्य अतिथिगण,

देवियों और सज्जनों !

आप सभी को धम्मचक्र प्रवर्तन दिवस और आषाढ़ पूर्णिमा की बहुत-बहुत शुभकामनाएं। आज हम गुरु-पूर्णिमा भी मनाते हैं, और आज के ही दिन भगवान बुद्ध ने बुद्धत्व की प्राप्ति के बाद अपना पहला ज्ञान संसार को दिया था। हमारे यहाँ कहा गया है, जहां ज्ञान है वहीं पूर्णता है, वहीं पूर्णिमा है। और जब उपदेश करने वाले स्वयं बुद्ध हों, तो स्वाभाविक है कि ये ज्ञान संसार के कल्याण का पर्याय बन जाता है। त्याग और तितिक्षा से तपे बुद्ध जब बोलते हैं तो केवल शब्द ही नहीं निकलते,बल्कि धम्मचक्र का प्रवर्तन होता है। इसीलिए, तब उन्होंने केवल पाँच शिष्यों को उपदेश दिया था, लेकिन आज पूरी दुनिया में उन शब्दों के अनुयायी हैं, बुद्ध में आस्था रखने वाले लोग हैं।


सारनाथ में भगवान बुद्ध ने पूरे जीवन का, पूरे ज्ञान का सूत्र हमें बताया था। उन्होंने दुःख के बारे में बताया, दुःख के कारण के बारे में बताया, ये आश्वासन दिया कि दुःखों से जीता जा सकता है, और इस जीत का रास्ता भी बताया। भगवान बुद्ध ने हमें जीवन के लिए अष्टांग सूत्र, आठ मंत्र दिये। सम्मादिट्ठी, सम्मा-संकप्पो, सम्मावाचा, सम्मा-कम्मन्तो, सम्मा-आजीवो, सम्मा-वायामो, सम्मासति, और सम्मा-समाधि। यानी कि, सम्यक दृष्टि, सम्यक संकल्प, सम्यक वाणी, सम्यक कर्म, सम्यक आजीविका, सम्यक प्रयास, सम्यक मन, सम्यक समाधि यानी मन की एकाग्रता। मन, वाणी और संकल्प में, हमारे कर्मों और प्रयासों में अगर ये संतुलन है तो हम दुःखों से निकलकर प्रगति और सुख को हासिल कर सकते हैं। यही संतुलन हमें अच्छे समय में हमें लोककल्याण की प्रेरणा देता है, और मुश्किल में धैर्य रखने की ताकत देता है।


आज कोरोना महामारी के रूप में मानवता के सामने वैसा ही संकट है जब भगवान बुद्ध हमारे लिए और भी प्रासंगिक हो जाते हैं। बुद्ध के मार्ग पर चलकर ही बड़ी से बड़ी चुनौती का सामना हम कैसे कर सकते हैं,

भारत ने ये करके दिखाया है। बुद्ध के सम्यक विचार को लेकर आज दुनिया के देश भी एक दूसरे का हाथ थाम रहे हैं, एक दूसरे की ताकत बन रहे हैं। इस दिशा में 'इंटरनेशनल बुद्धिष्ट कनफेडरेशन' का 'केयर विथ प्रेयर इनिशिएटिव' ये भी बहुत प्रशंसनीय है।


धम्मपद कहता है-

न ही वेरेन वेरानि,

सम्मन्तीध कुदाचनम्।

अवेरेन च सम्मन्ति,

एस धम्मो सनन्ततो॥

अर्थात, वैर से वैर शांत नहीं होता। बल्कि वैर अवैर से, बड़े मन से, प्रेम से शांत होता है। त्रासदी के समय में दुनिया ने प्रेम की, सौहार्द की इस शक्ति को महसूस किया है। बुद्ध का ये ज्ञान, मानवता का ये अनुभव जैसे जैसे समृद्ध होगा, विश्व सफलता और समृद्धि की नई ऊंचाइयों को छूएगा।

इसी कामना के साथ एक बार फिर आप सभी को बहुत-बहुत बधाई। आप स्वस्थ रहें और मानवता की सेवा करते रहें!
