PM Shri Narendra Modi today addressed the ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’ in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. While addressing the gathering of more than 5 lakh party workers, the Prime Minister began his speech by remembering Pandit Shri Deen Dayal Upadhyaya on his birth anniversary and the late PM Shri Atal Bihari Vajapyee. He added, “We are proud to be born to serve as workers of the Bhartiya Janata Party.”
“It is a matter of pride for us that our party is in power in 19 states of the country, however, it is a matter of greater pride that our party is the largest party in the world,” the PM said.
The PM also acknowledged the contributions made by leaders like Kushabhau Thackeray and Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia Ji in strengthening the party’s organizational foundations in its current strong position in Madhya Pradesh. The Prime Minister also lauded the Madhya Pradesh government led by CM Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, saying that his government has continuously worked for the social empowerment of the people of Madhya Pradesh.
Describing his vision for the country, the PM again reiterated that the mantra of his government is “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.” The Prime Minister also asserted his approach and commitment by saying, “We consider 125 crore people of India as one family and for us, the nation always comes first.”
The Prime Minister also called upon the party workers to strengthen the party in Madhya Pradesh by spreading the message and vision of the BJP and its achievements to the people of Madhya Pradesh. He asked each party worker to ensure that the BJP wins at his respective booth and gave them the slogan of “Mera Booth, Sabse Mazboot” to strengthen the BJP state organization at the booth level.
The Prime Minister also criticized the Opposition parties, particularly the Indian National Congress for its failure to bring about economic and social development in the state of Madhya Pradesh despite ruling at the state and national levels for a long time. He called upon the people of Madhya Pradesh to decide between the politics of ‘Vikas (development)’ and politics of vote-bank in the upcoming state and national elections.
PM Modi further elaborated by describing how the practice of ‘Triple Talaq’ had been banned in several Islamic countries of the world and its banning in India will go a long way in ensuring equal rights and dignity for Muslim women. He expressed shock and anger at the politics of appeasement and vote-bank played by the Congress on this issue and strongly asserted that all women, regardless of their religion, must have equal rights in a democratic country like India.
The PM touched upon the unfounded allegations leveled on him and his government in the concluding section and remarked, “People can throw as much dirt on us as they want to but they should not forget that the more dirt they throw upon us, the more this Kamal (Lotus, the BJP symbol) will bloom.”
BJP President Shri Amit Shah, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan and several other party karyakartas were present at the event.

ये हमारा सौभाग्य है – हम वो लोग हैं जिन्हें गांधी भी मंजूर है, लोहिया भी मंजूर है और पंडित दीन दयाल उपाध्याय भी मंजूर है क्योंकि हम समन्वय में विश्वास करते हैं: PM @narendramodi https://t.co/Td9yWEED5Q— narendramodi_in (@narendramodi_in) September 25, 2018
Congress never ever thought about welfare of Madhya Pradesh. Only if they would have thought, when they were in power for such a long time at Centre, they would have added to the state's progress. Sadly, they only believe in vote-bank politics: PM @narendramodi— narendramodi_in (@narendramodi_in) September 25, 2018
चुनाव तो आते हैं जाते हैं, 125 साल पुरानी पार्टी में अब कुछ नहीं बचा है। ये कांग्रेस पार्टी बोझ बन गई है, ऐसे लोगों से देश को बचाना ये भी लोकतंत्र में जागरूक नागरिकों का कर्तव्य है: PM @narendramodi— narendramodi_in (@narendramodi_in) September 25, 2018
जो पार्टी 125 सालों से भी पुरानी हो, जिस पार्टी के अनेकों भूतपूर्व राज्यपाल हो, फिर ऐसा क्या हुआ इतनी बड़ी पार्टी को सूक्ष्मदर्शी यंत्र लेकर निकलना पड़ता है कि देश में कहीं बचे हैं की नहीं और इतनी पराजय के बाद भी कांग्रेस सुधरने को तौयार नहीं है: PM @narendramodi— narendramodi_in (@narendramodi_in) September 25, 2018
