April 23, 2024
PM Modi says be it 2014 or 2019, Rajasthan unitedly gave its blessings to form a strong BJP government in the country
Whenever we have been divided the enemy has taken advantage of it: PM Modi in Tonk-Sawai Madhopur
Congress is plotting to snatch your property and distribute it to their special people...When I exposed their politics, they started abusing Modi: PM
In the rule of Congress, even listening to Hanuman Chalisa becomes a crime, says PM Modi in Tonk-Sawai Madhopur

Continuing his election campaigning spree, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a public meeting in Tonk-Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan. PM Modi extends his heartfelt wishes to the entire nation on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti. He said, “Whether it was 2014 or 2019, Rajasthan united to bless the BJP with the strength to form a powerful government in the country. You secured 25 out of 25 seats for the BJP.”

At the start of his public meeting, the PM remarked, “Remember, every time we are divided, the enemies of the nation have taken advantage. Even now, efforts are being made to divide Rajasthan, to divide its people. Rajasthan must remain vigilant against this.”

Addressing the huge gathering in Tonk-Sawai Madhopur, PM Modi stated, “You all were freed from the clutches of Congress just a few months ago. The wounds inflicted by the Congress party while in power are something the people of Rajasthan cannot forget. Congress made Rajasthan number one in cases of atrocities against women. You all know why the industry in Tonk shut down due to certain antisocial elements. However, since Bhajan Lal Sharma came, the mafia and criminals have been forced to flee Rajasthan. Even the Paparleak mafia has cooled down after Bhajan Lal's legal crackdown.”

Reminiscing an unacceptable incident happened in Karnataka, PM Modi said, “As we speak on Hanuman Jayanti today, I'm reminded of a picture from a few days ago. It's from Congress-ruled Karnataka. Recently, a shopkeeper there was brutally beaten simply because he was listening to the Hanuman Chalisa. You can imagine... in the reign of Congress, even listening to the Hanuman Chalisa is considered a sin.”

He further added, “Following one's faith becomes difficult under Congress rule, and Rajasthan has suffered because of it. Just a few days ago, we celebrated Ram Navami. For the first time after Congress's departure, a peaceful procession was held. During Congress's tenure, Ram Navami celebrations were banned in Rajasthan. Congress provided government protection to stone-pelters during processions. In a state like Rajasthan where people chant Ram-Ram, Congress banned Ram Navami.”

Continuing from his previous remarks PM Modi reiterated his charge that Congress, if voted to power, will conduct wealth survey to seize the assets of people and take away their life-long savings. He said, “Congress is plotting to snatch your property and distribute it to their special people. When I exposed their politics, they got so angry that they started abusing me. I want to know from Congress why are they so afraid of the truth?” PM Modi also alleged that one of the Congress leaders would conduct X-ray scans of people's properties and distribute them to their favored individuals.

“As soon as the Congress came to power at the center in 2004, one of its first initiatives was attempting Muslim reservation in Andhra Pradesh. This was a pilot project that the Congress wanted to implement nationwide. Between 2004 and 2010, the Congress made four attempts to introduce Muslim reservation in Andhra Pradesh, but due to legal hurdles, the plans were not realized,” the PM added.

Slamming the opposition for going against the constitution, PM Modi asserted, “The truth is that when the Congress and the INDI Alliance were in power, they wanted to grant reservation to one section of the society by cutting into the quotas meant for Dalits and backward classes, which is completely against the Constitution. The reservation rights that Dr. Babasaheb gave to Dalits, backward classes, and tribals, the Congress and the INDI Alliance wanted to give them to specific minorities based on religion.”

Furthermore, the Prime Minister said, “Amid these conspiracies of the Congress, today Modi is giving you an open guarantee. The reservation for Dalits, backward classes, and tribals will not end, nor will it be distributed in the name of religion. In 2020, the constitutional deadline for reservation was ending, it is Modi who has extended reservation for Dalits and tribals for another 10 years.”

Outlining his vision for creating modern infrastructure, PM Modi iterated, “Congress didn't let the most crucial ERCP project pass for Rajasthan. The BJP government approved the ERCP project within three months. The ERCP project will bring significant benefits to Tonk-Sawai Madhopur. It's the BJP that is building modern infrastructure across the country. The country's largest Delhi-Mumbai Expressway passes through Sawai Madhopur. The government has also approved the doubling of the Jaipur-Sawai Madhopur railway line. A medical college is also being prepared for better medical facilities in this area.”

Urging the people of Rajasthan to vote for BJP, PM Modi said, “The next phase of voting is on April 26th. Wherever I have gone in Rajasthan recently, the people of the state have blessed me abundantly. Your dreams are my dreams. Every moment, every second of mine is for the country, to fulfill the dream of a developed India. That's why, 24/7... I am working for 2047. And the work done in the last 10 years is just a trailer. In the next 5 years, we have to take the country, and Rajasthan, much further ahead.”
