PM Modi addresses a public meeting in Mysuru, Karnataka
April 14, 2024
BJP's manifesto is a picture of the future and bigger changes: PM Modi in Mysuru
Today, Congress party is roaming around like the ‘Sultan’ of a ‘Tukde-Tukde’ gang: PM Modi in Mysuru
India will be world's biggest Innovation hub, creating affordable medicines, technology, and vehicles: PM Modi in Mysuru

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting in Mysuru, Karnataka, seeking blessings from Tai Chamundeshwari. Expressing reverence, he bowed to the feet of Tai Chamundeshwari, Tai Bhuvaneshwari, and Tai Kaveri, symbolizing the essence of power inherent in the land of Mysuru and Karnataka. Acknowledging the significant presence of the people, especially the mothers and sisters of Karnataka, PM Modi emphasized the state's resounding call for the return of the Modi government.

"Today marks a pivotal moment for the Lok Sabha election and the next five years," stated PM Modi, referencing the release of BJP's manifesto. He highlighted the manifesto as a guarantee of promises, affirming the commitment to construct three crore new homes for the impoverished, ensure continued free rations for the needy, offer free medical treatment under the Ayushman scheme for senior citizens above seventy, and empower three crore women to become 'Lakhpatis'. These assurances, he asserted, would significantly enhance the quality of life for every individual in Karnataka.

Reflecting on the transformative journey of Digital India over the past decade, PM Modi underscored BJP's vision for the future, promising monumental changes. He envisioned a future India marked by world-class infrastructure, innovation hubs, and advancements in technology.

“The BJP's manifesto is now a picture of the future and bigger changes. This is the new picture of India. Earlier, India was known for dilapidated roads. Now, expressways are the identity of India. In the coming times, India will amaze the world with its world-class network of expressways, waterways, and airways,” the Prime Minister said.

PM Modi reaffirmed BJP's commitment to promoting local languages and preserving heritage sites like Mysuru, Hampi, and Badami, thereby fostering tourism and generating employment opportunities in Karnataka. He said, “Now, India will emerge as the world's biggest Innovation Hub. That means we will create cheap medicines, cheap technology, and cheap vehicles for the entire world. India will become the world's research and development hub. And a fund of one lakh crore rupees will also play a major role in scientific research. Karnataka is the IT and technology hub of the country. The youth here will benefit greatly from it.”

"For the realization of these goals, BJP and the NDA are indispensable," declared PM Modi, emphasizing the party's track record of delivering on promises. He cited landmark achievements such as the abrogation of Article 370, legislation against triple talaq, reservation for women, and the construction of the Ram Temple as evidence of BJP's unwavering resolve.

PM Modi acknowledged the invaluable guidance of senior leaders like Shri HD Deve Gowda and the dedication of experienced leaders like Shri BS Yediyurappa, highlighting their pivotal roles in Karnataka's development.

The Prime Minister invoked Karnataka's rich heritage and tradition of sacrifice for the nation's unity and integrity, contrasting it with the divisive agenda of the Congress party. PM Modi said, “Karnataka is the carrier of that great tradition, which teaches to sacrifice everything for the unity and integrity of the country. Here, there is the tradition of Saints of Sutturu Math, the voice of unity of the national poet Kuvempu, the pride of Field Marshal Cariappa, and the development work done by the king Krishnaraja Wodeyar of Mysuru is still an inspiration for the country. This is the land where the mothers of Kodagu dream of sending their children to the army for national service.”

"The Congress party is playing with fire for power," warned PM Modi, condemning its divisive tactics and anti-national rhetoric. He criticized Congress for its attempts to hinder the country's progress and its open appeasement policies, urging voters to reject the politics of opportunism and deception. “The Congress party today is roaming around like the ‘Sultan’ of a ‘Tukde-Tukde’ gang. The dangerous intentions of dividing, breaking, and weakening the country are still the same in the Congress party today,” said PM Modi.

“While India's stature and respect are increasing globally, Congress leaders go abroad to denigrate the country. When the country gives a fitting reply to its enemies, Congress demands proof of surgical strikes from the army. When an organization involved in terrorist activities is banned, Congress works with its political wing,” the Prime Minister added.

Highlighting the achievements that Karnataka attained in the last ten years, PM Modi said, “The network of national highways has been greatly expanded here. The expressway between Mysuru and Bengaluru has given this region new momentum. Today, along with the country, the Vande Bharat trains are also running in Karnataka. Under the Jal Jeevan Mission, people in more than eight thousand villages are starting to get water from taps. These results show that if the intention is right, then the results are right too.”

“Modi gives an account of his ten years. Have you ever seen Congress being held accountable for its sixty years? No, right? Because Congress only knows how to create problems, and how to deceive. The people of Karnataka are trapped in this agony. The Karnataka Congress Party has become an ATM state of looting. Due to open looting, the government treasury has been emptied. Development and welfare schemes are being discontinued,” he added.

While concluding his address, PM Modi urged the people of Karnataka to vote for BJP candidates, emphasizing their role in strengthening his leadership and shaping India's future. Underscoring the importance of their participation in the democratic process, PM Modi said, ‘Every vote you cast for them on April twenty-sixth will strengthen Modi and determine the future of the country.”
