PM Modi during his address at the ‘NDA Leaders’ Meet’ recalled the role of Atal ji, Advani ji and the various other prominent leaders in shaping the NDA and providing it the necessary direction and guidance. PM Modi also acknowledged and congratulated all on the completion of 25 years since the establishment of NDA in 1998. This Silver Jubilee has played an important role in the nation-building of India, he remarked.


PM Modi said, “The coming 25 years is going to be extremely crucial as India journeys towards an Aatmanirbhar and a developed nation. We as the Government have to cater to the various dreams and aspirations of the people of India with regard to the next 25 years.” Adding further, PM Modi said, “For the same, NDA today stands for N-New India, D-Developed Nation and A-Aspiration of people and regions. He added that all the sections of people across the country had faith in the NDA and looked at it as a positive force.


Mentioning that a stable and development-oriented government was needed for India, the PM remarked, “A Government with majority promotes stability and the NDA over these years has strived to provide the same.” The Congress Party, he said, has created coalitions that have only strived to promote negativity and unstable policies. “Congress used coalitions in the 1990s to destabilise the country by forming governments and then pulling them down. On the other hand, the NDA was formed to bring stability and not to topple any government. Even while being in the opposition, the NDA always indulged in positive politics prioritizing Nation First,” said PM Modi.


“We have always believed in strengthening India’s democratic fundamentals. We have neither let foreign interests dictate terms and nor have sought their help,” he added.


Stating that the opposition today, does not allow the central schemes to function effectively in various states, PM Modi said that they fear that these schemes will uplift all even at the very grassroots level.


Coming down heavily on corruption and scams of the Opposition, PM Modi observed, “When Coalition-led Governments encourage and prioritize corruption, dynastic politics, casteism, politics of convenience it only harms the interests of India.”


Taking a jibe at the UPA government, PM Modi mentioned, “The example of the coalition government before 2014 is in front of us. Amidst all the ups and downs, that coalition government could somehow pull through its 10 years. And what did the country get? A high command even over the Prime Minister, policy paralysis, indecisiveness, creation of power-centers, mistrust and corruption. On the other hand, NDA has always believed in the Coalition of Contribution unlike the Congress-led Coalition of Compulsions. This principle has remained true despite the BJP attaining a majority on its own in both the 2014 and 2019 elections.”


Regarding the contributions by the NDA, PM Modi said that all the parties that have been a part of the alliance, have worked tirelessly to empower the poor and the downtrodden. He added that it had been the efforts of the various parties of the NDA, that today even the commonest of voices, demands and aspirations were reaching the Central Government in Delhi. “NDA has always manifested Nation-First and Nation’s Security First, Progress First and the Empowerment of People First,” said PM Modi.


“It is the perseverance of the NDA that has seen the largest number of people exit poverty, empowering them,” he added citing reports by reputed institutions indicating decline in poverty rate. “This Government has always prioritized the development of the poor, be it the buildings of houses, providing free healthcare, or the providing of bank loans. This Government has sought the development of all avoiding appeasement and enabling social justice,” said PM Modi.


Elaborating how the NDA Government changed the politics of vote bank into the politics of development, the PM cited numerous measures undertaken in the last nine years towards women-led development in the country. He said, “We are all aware of restrictive and non-participative role of women in India in the recent past. Today, women are opening bank accounts, registering houses in their name and are also availing loans leading to their true empowerment. Be it the Mudra loans or the Startups, women are now at the forefront of India’s economic progress. Women-led SHGs are the pioneers of rural development also promoting social inclusion. The NDA through its various initiatives like constructing toilets under Swachh Bharat Abhiyan or by providing free LPG cylinders has truly created a women-led development. From defence to mining, we have opened up these sectors for the women. NDA has had the honour of electing a tribal woman as the President of India,” said PM Modi.


“We possess a clear conscience, a clear policy and a clear ability to deliver”, said PM Modi adding, “Over the nine years, we have eliminated corruption and aided development through the use of technology. We have enabled the JAM Trinity in fraud prevention and accurate identification and targeting of beneficiaries through the DBT system. For us, India’s democracy is a means to enable good governance and efficient service delivery,” said PM Modi.


Expounding that the NDA recognized the true efforts of the people who have contributed towards the growth and development of India, even cutting across party-lines, PM Modi said, “It is the NDA which has awarded numerous people belonging to different parties with Bharat Ratna for their meritorious service. NDA has always recognized and appreciated the efforts of the people for this country.” The Prime Minister stated that it was the NDA government which gave Bharat Ratna to Pranab da, Padma Awards to Mulayam Singh Yadav ji, Sharad Pawar ji, Ghulam Nabi Azad ji, Tarun Gogoi ji, SC Jamir ji and Muzaffar Baig ji.
Reposing his faith in the people of the country, PM Modi mentioned that citizens were well aware of which parties were capable of forming Government and providing stable and good governance. “The people of India are a witness to the country’s development; they can see who is trying to make India and who is trying to break India. They can see that which alliances are strong and forthcoming and which alliances is greedy catering to their narrow-minded interests,” said PM Modi.


“The 2024 General Elections are not far away. The Indian people have decided to elect the NDA for the third time,” said PM Modi. Adding that various Foreign Governments like in the USA, France, the UAE and Egypt among others were inviting Indian representatives and signing major deals before the elections showcased a clear indication of the NDA’s ability to lead India. He also mentioned about the faith Indian Diaspora had on the NDA Government. “A testimony for this overwhelming support is the history and chemistry of the NDA and its sheer ability to deliver,” said PM Modi.


Concluding his speech, PM Modi said that India’s development should be our only agenda going into the elections. He said, “I assure you; I assure the countrymen that I will leave no stone unturned in my hard work and my efforts. I will stay away from bad intentions; I will not do any work with bad intentions. Every particle of my body, every moment of my time, is dedicated to serve the country.”

PM Modi addresses a massive public meeting in Ghazipur, Uttar Pradesh
May 25, 2024
In the SP era, mafias roamed freely, flaunting their power in open jeeps: PM Modi taking a dig at the Opposition
Under Yogi Ji’s government, riots and rioters have been stopped: PM Modi in Ghazipur, UP
Congress mastered the art of delaying work and denying rights: PM Modi in UP

In the heart of Ghazipur, Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured the crowd of his transparent vision for a Viksit Bharat, pledging to thwart every obstruction posed by the opposition.

PM Modi initiated his address to the crowd, invoking a poignant memory from the past, "Whenever I come to Ghazipur, I'm reminded of a betrayal. After independence, Congress had sworn not to develop this area, forcing its people to live in suffocating poverty. This incident stands as a testament to how the INDI Alliance has consistently let Ghazipur down."

PM Modi made the crowd aware by highlighting the stark contrast between the past and present, "Today, I feel immense satisfaction knowing our government provides free ration to every poor household. Even during the severe crisis of Corona, we ensured no one slept hungry. Modi's government is spending lakhs of crores on this free ration scheme, ensuring no one faces the hardships experienced during the Congress-SP rule."

The PM engaged in an open dialogue with the audience while drawing a sharp line of difference between the past and present governance, underscoring the transformative journey India has embarked upon under his leadership, “Congress mastered the art of delaying work and denying rights, even neglecting our soldiers' One Rank One Pension (OROP) demand. It was under Modi that OROP was implemented. While dynastic leaders built palaces; the poor, farmers, labourers, Dalits, and deprived struggled. Modi’s government has changed lives. In 10 years, 25 crore people rose from poverty through empowering schemes. We've channelled PM-Awas into reality, opened bank accounts, electrified every village, provided water to every household, and ensured no poor person sells land for treatment with Ayushman cards. Now, Modi guarantees free treatment for all elderly above 70 years."

PM yet again vividly illustrated the sharp realities, outlining the transformative impact of the current administration, "In the SP era, mafias roamed freely, flaunting their power in open jeeps, and opponents were gunned down with impunity. Riots defined UP, with two to three major riots every month, causing immense loss to the poor and shopkeepers. Under Yogi Ji’s government, riots and rioters have been stopped. SP-Congress will do anything for votes and power. The SP Shehzade once vowed to banish mafias but ended up bowing to them, even giving them tickets. Someone who cannot keep his word can never fight your battle."

PM Modi warned the audience of the grave threat posed by the INDI Alliance to the rights of Dalits and backward classes, "The INDI Alliance is looting the reservations meant for Dalits and backward classes, conspiring to allocate them based on religion instead. They aim to strip reservations from castes like Pasi, Jatav, Lonia, Kurmi, Yadav, Bind, Nishad, and Patel. In Karnataka, they’ve already diverted OBC reservations to Muslims. Their scheme in Bengal has been exposed by the Calcutta High Court just two days ago. Nearly all OBC reservations in Bengal were being given to Muslims and infiltrators. Congress, SP, TMC—all are complicit in this assault on SC-ST-OBC reservations."

“In a bold declaration, the INDI Alliance has vowed to reinstate Article 370 in Kashmir, a move that threatens to reignite terrorism and embolden Pakistan. But Ghazipur stands firm against such perilous propositions. Witnessing its own transformation, Ghazipur now symbolizes hope for Kashmir's development. The people of Ghazipur reject regression; they embrace progress,” the PM further added to establish the truth.

In his concluding words, PM Modi urged Ghazipur to stand firmly behind the vision of a Viksit Bharat. Additionally, the PM also requested the crowd’s assistance in spreading the message of his greetings by visiting every doorstep.
