The need to make the financial sector inclusive in the Nation’s development story and give prominence to human resource development for the creation of a vibrant economy was the focus of Shri Narendra Modi’s address at the plenary session of the National Summit on “Financial Services – A key driver for economic growth” at GIFT city in Gandhinagar.

Addressing the august gathering, on the afternoon of 19th February, Shri Modi spoke of the fundamental role of financial institutions in driving the economy and highlighted how no industry can progress without the development of the financial sector. “We need to give importance to inclusive financial sector for growth,” said Shri Modi, while underscoring how this inclusion will contribute immensely to the growth and success story.

Shri Modi stressed on the need to involve ICT into taking the financial sector to great heights, and said that for this the focus should be on providing ICT security, offering real time service, creating next-generation ICT utility and ensuring high-end solutions.

Shri Modi shared his idea of giving importance to human resource development, as much as infrastructure and technology, and thereby create a vibrant economy. “The importance we are giving to infrastructure and technology, we are giving the same importance to human resource development. We have to export both our labour and talent. Till we do not do that, we cannot compete,” said Shri Modi, while underscoring the need to focus on skill development and value-addition.

While speaking on job creation, Shri Modi emphasized on giving due prominence to human resource development. He said, “Job creation is a priority for us. Our development model is leaning towards low-end activities. We want to upgrade that into high-end activity,” while adding that the sooner we did this, the better we could position our country on the global platform.

Speaking on the tremendous potential of tourism, Shri Modi called for a paradigm shift to tap this potential, and called for the need to create required facilities and modern infrastructure. He put forth the idea of introducing a modern urban concept by creating new world-class cities with special characters, like knowledge city, finance city, sports city and medicity. “Let us create most modern urban infrastructure and let us create world-class cities. We also need to focus on skilled manpower,” said Shri Modi, while adding that the creation of world-class cities, with the most modern infrastructure, would propel the growth for the country.

In his trademark style of wit and humour, Shri Modi brought out the recent directive to levy service tax on his large rallies across the nation. Shri Modi said, “The nation has seen the true picture during the vote-on-account. The Finance Minister says he is working hard. But about what is he working hard…last evening I learnt that there will be service tax on my rallies. Now I have come to know what this hard work was all about! Even my speeches are contributing to the nation and I am happy to know this.”

On the occasion, Shri Modi also gave away allotment letters to the Managing Directors and CEOs of companies who have established their presence at GIFT city. Dignitaries to grace the occasion included Dr. Varesh Sinha, Chief Secretary, Government of Gujarat, Dr. Hasmukh Adhia, Additional Chief Secretary - Finance, Government of Gujarat and Shri Hari Sankaran, VC & MD, IL&FS.

In Bengal, after we form the govt, you will be provided all benefits & schemes without cut-money: PM Modi

After years of bloodshed, fear, atrocity and goodaism, Bengal will now walk towards peace and progress to fulfil the vision of 'Sonar Bangla': PM Modi
This election of Bengal is not only being fought by BJP, people of Bengal are also fighting this election: PM Modi in Krishnanagar

PM Modi addressed two mega rallies ahead of fourth phase of election in West Bengal’s Siliguri and Krishnanagar. “The entire North Bengal has announced that TMC government is going and BJP government is coming. Today, the entire nation is proud to see the willpower of the people of Bengal. This willpower is of the ‘Ashol Poriborton’. This willpower is the strength of ‘Sonar Bangla’,” he said in Siliguri rally.

Expressing anguish over Cooch Behar incident, PM Modi said, “What happened in Cooch Behar is very saddening. My sympathies are with the families of those who died, I condole their demise. Didi and her goons are perturbed, seeing the people's support for BJP. She has stooped to this level as she can see her chair slipping away.”

Reacting to the violence in Cooch Behar, he also said, “Didi, this violence, tactics of instigating people to attack the Security Forces, the tactics of obstructing the polling process will not protect you. This violence can't protect you from the 10 years of your ill-governance.”

Amidst the fourth phase of West Bengal Assembly polls, the Prime Minister asserted, “I saw a video on social media. In it, the tourism minister of Bengal who is close to Didi is threatening the people of the state, saying if people voted for BJP, people will be thrown out of the Bengal. Will you accept this language, such sort of threat?”

Accusing Mamata didi for not showing her 10 years report card of her governance, PM Modi remarked, “Didi's goons are not able to do 'chhappa votes' this time around and thus, Didi is angry. She never presented her report card for 10 years. She should be giving the account of her works, her nephew's works and her goons' works.”

PM Modi, who has been relentlessly campaigning in West Bengal during assembly elections, hit out at Mamata Banerjee for her government’s patronage to syndicates, tolabaazs and cut-money mafias during a rally in Siliguri.

“It's time to change the kind of political environment, that has been created in Bengal for past several decades. 'Tolabaaj mukt' Bengal will be formed now. 'Syndicate mukt' Bengal will be formed now. 'Cut money mukt' Bengal will be formed now,” he added further.

Talking about TMC leader Sujata Mondal who made disparaging comments against the Dalit community. PM Modi without taking name said, “The thinking of Didi and TMC leaders is coming out in the open. A video is going viral on social media where a leader close to Didi can be seen blatantly accusing the Scheduled Caste community of Bengal as ‘beggars by nature’.”

In Siliguri, PM Modi accused Didi for not giving even tap-water to the people of Bengal, he said, “She did not provide irrigation water in the fields. But the rivers here were handed over to the mafias. Every scheme has tolabaz, every scheme has cut-money. A few days ago in Siliguri, Didi said that her tolabaaz only take 100-500 rupees, what is the big deal in this?”

Exuding confidence of forming the BJP government in the state, the PM stated, “In Bengal, after we form the government, you will be provided all benefits and schemes without cut money. The BJP government in Bengal will work on lines of how we worked during COVID lockdown. The Central government sent thousands of crores to everyone during the lockdown. The BJP government in Bengal will work with the same transparency.”

In Krishnanagar’s rally, the Prime Minister said, “After a wait for decades, the 'mahayagya' of 'ashol poribortan' has started in Bengal. This 'mahayagya' will teach a lesson to appeasers. After years of bloodshed, fear, atrocity and goondaism, Bengal will now walk towards peace and progress to fulfil the vision of 'Sonar Bangla'. This land will be freed of mafia, cow traffickers and infiltration.”

“The BJP has come into existence with the blessings of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee,” PM Modi said. The Prime Minister added that his party is fortunate that the people of Bengal are going to give them the opportunity to serve Bengal.

Taking a jibe at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, PM Modi said, “Seeing defeat, she has decided to do politics outside Bengal. The Varanasi thing has not been come out like this. That is, after the election, Didi will take an exit and the nephew will stake claim to play a new Khela in Bengal. This is also a game, which the people of Bengal have to understand.”

PM Modi slammed TMC supremo for abusing EC, CAPF, EVM, he asserted, “Didi abuses EC, CAPF, EVM.. to the extent, that Didi is abusing her own party's polling agents now. She is so desperate that she is defaming Bengal's voters. Didi, o Didi! People of Bengal don't expect you to have sensitivity any more.”

The Prime Minister criticised the ruling Trinamool Congress government, he alleged, “What did TMC government give to the youth of Bengal - unemployment, riots, lathis, and now, insults. Even the minority classes that Didi continued to serve are also at distress due to cut money and syndicate.”

Touting “double engine ki sarkar” as the best option for voters the Prime Minister said, “I request all young karyakartas to help spread the word of ‘ashol poriborton’ to their families and neighbours. He ended his speech with an appeal to voters to press the button for the lotus flower in upcoming elections. “In every seat and in every booth you just have to remember one thing ‘Ebar kamal chap, TMC saaf” the Prime Minister said.
