The ‘Zayed Medal’ belongs to 130 crore Indians as well as to millions of Indians actively contributing in rapid development of UAE: PM Modi
The people of India fully stand with our armed forces and will never put their faith in those parties that question their own army: Prime Minister Modi
We are moving forward with our vision of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ and will continue to put people’s welfare first: PM Modi

Riding high on the election campaigning, Prime Minister Modi addressed two major rallies in Amroha and Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh today.

Expressing his gratitude for being awarded the highest civilian honour of the United Arab Emirates, the ‘Zayed Medal’ yesterday, PM Modi said, “This honor is not mine, it belongs to the 130 crore Indians and to millions of Indians actively participating in the progress of UAE. This award enhances the country’s global repute because the country is being led by a strong government that puts the people’s interests first.”

Taking on the Congress and its allies for demoralizing the Indian armed forces, Prime Minister Modi said, “These parties and their leaders sympathize with terrorists and separatists. They feel bad when India responds strongly to Pakistan’s terror activities or when we talk to Pakistan in a language it understands. Leaders of Congress, SP, BSP have publicly taken soft stands towards Pakistan and have even questioned the impact of Balakot airstrikes conducted by India. These statements have boosted the morale of terror sympathizers while demoralizing our armed forces. The people of India fully stand with our armed forces and will never put their faith in those parties that question their own army.” In this context, he explained how terror attacks became commonplace in major cities of Uttar Pradesh during the previous governments of Congress, SP and BSP and how perpetrators of some attacks were even let go by the SP-BSP governments.

Reminding his supporters about the Congress’ utter disregard for great leaders that did not belong to the ‘first-family’ of the Congress, Prime Minister Modi said, “The Congress defeated Babasaheb Ambedkar in polls to make people forget his great legacy and did not even let Babasaheb’s portrait to be hanged in the Parliament Hall. A similar fate was accorded to one of Babasaheb’s close aides and one of India’s great leaders Jogendra Nath Mandal, who also became the first Law Minister of Pakistan, but was insulted there for belonging to a particular community and chose to return to India, after which he was again humiliated by the Congress government here. This is the true face of the Congress which now pretends to honour Babasaheb for its vote-bank politics.”

Highlighting the questionable promises made in the Congress manifesto, Prime Minister Modi explained how several promises in the manifesto were not incriminating and derogatory to the repute of our armed forces while also demanding answerability from the Congress on the promise of apparently a softer approach towards convicted rapists. He termed the manifesto ‘Dhakosala-Patra’ and questioned how the Congress would ensure women’s safety with its softer approach on rapists. He further added, “While there are some in UP that talk about ‘Boti-Boti’ (Chopping into pieces), we (the BJP) talk about ‘Beti-Beti’ (Each daughter) and ensuring her safety. This is why the people of UP support us wholeheartedly.”

 

 

 

Bringing his power-packed address to a conclusion, PM Modi highlighted the achievements of his government during the past five years and said, “Our government has worked for everyone be it farmers, soldiers, youth, middle class or the poor. We are moving forward with our vision of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ and will continue to put people’s welfare first.” Lastly, he urged the people to support the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and ensure that a strong and decisive government assumes power in May 2019.

“Buddha's message is for the whole world, Buddha's Dhamma is for humanity”
“Buddha is universal because Buddha said to start from within. Buddha's Buddhatva is a sense of ultimate responsibility”
“Buddha, even today, is the inspiration of the Constitution of India, Buddha's Dhamma Chakra is sitting on the tricolour of India and giving us momentum.”
“Lord Buddha’s message ‘Appa Deepo Bhava’ is the motivation for India to become self-reliant”

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in an event marking Abhidhamma Day at the Mahaparinirvana Temple in Kushinagar. Governor and Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Union Ministers, Shri G Kishan Reddy, Shri Kiren Rijiju, Shri Jyotiraditya Scindia, Cabinet Minister in Sri Lankan Government, Shri Namal Rajapaksa, Buddhist delegation from Sri Lanka, diplomats from Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Lao PDR, Bhutan, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Japan, Singapore, Nepal, among others, were present on the occasion.

Addressing the event, the Prime Minister noted the auspicious occasion of Ashwin Poornima and the presence of holy relics of Lord Buddha. Welcoming the delegation of Sri Lanka, the Prime Minister recalled the connections between India and Srilanka and talked about emperor Ashoka's son Mahendra and daughter Sanghamitra taking the message of Buddhism to Sri Lanka. He also remarked that it is believed that on this day, 'Arhat Mahinda' came back and told his father that Sri Lanka had accepted the Buddha's message with so much energy. This news had increased the belief that Buddha's message is for the whole world, Buddha's Dhamma is for humanity, the Prime Minister said.

Lauding the role of the International Buddhist Confederation in spreading the message of Lord Buddha, the Prime Minister remembered Shri Shakti Sinha for his contribution as DG of the International Buddhist Confederation. Shri Sinha passed away recently.

The Prime Minister remarked that today is another auspicious occasion - Lord Buddha's coming back to earth from Tushita heaven. That is why, on Ashwin Purnima today, the monks also complete their three-month 'Varshavas'. ‘Today I too have had the privilege of 'chiver daan' to the Sangh monks after the 'Varshavas'’, Shri Modi said.

The Prime Minister said Buddha is universal because Buddha said to start from within. Buddha's Buddhatva is a sense of ultimate responsibility. The Prime Minister said today when the world talks about environmental protection, expresses its concern about climate change, then many questions arise with it. But, if we adopt the message of Buddha, then instead of 'who will do', 'what is to be done’ path starts showing itself. The Prime Minister said that Buddha resides in the soul of humanity and is connecting different cultures and countries. India has made this aspect of his teaching part of the journey of its growth. “India never believed in restricting the knowledge, great messages or the thoughts of great souls. Whatever was ours was shared with the entire humanity. That is why, human values like non-violence and compassion are settled in the heart of India so naturally”, the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister said Buddha, even today, is the inspiration of the Constitution of India, Buddha's Dhamma Chakra is sitting on the tricolour of India and giving us momentum. Even today, if someone goes to the Parliament of India, then this mantra is definitely seen - 'Dharma Chakra Pravartanaya', the Prime Minister said.

Talking about the influence of Lord Buddha in Gujarat and, specifically, the Prime Minister’s birthplace, Vadnagar, Shri Modi said Buddha’s influence is visible in western and southern parts of the country in equal measures as the eastern parts. “Gujarat’s past shows that Buddha was beyond boundaries and directions. Mahatma Gandhi, born in the land of Gujarat was the modern flag-bearer of Buddha’s message of truth and non-violence”, he said.

Quoting Lord Buddha "Appa Deepo Bhava" meaning ``be your own lamp”, the Prime Minister said when a person is self-illuminated, then he gives light to the world as well. He added that this is the motivation for India to become self-reliant. This is the inspiration that gives us the strength to participate in the progress of every country in the world. The Prime Minister also remarked that Lord Buddha’s teachings are being taken forward by India in the mantra of Sanka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas.
