BJP has always followed the path Atal Ji has shown us. A strong NDA is an article of faith for us: PM Modi
No government has done as much for Tamil Nadu as we have. We are working hard to bring a holistic change across different sectors in the lives of poor: PM
Before 2014, corruption was institutionalized. Today, honesty has been institutionalized: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with BJP booth workers from five constituencies, Arakkonam, Cuddalore, Dharmapuri, Erode and Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu today. The interaction began with PM Modi extending Pongal wishes for health, happiness and prosperity to the people of Tamil Nadu.

Responding to rumors about BJP’s alliances with regional parties in Tamil Nadu, PM Modi said that the BJP has always been inspired from the vision of Atal Ji and hence they always cherish their allies. He further said, “A strong NDA is an article of faith for us.”

Appreciating the work done by social media supporters in putting forward the party’s position and views on critical issues on various social media platforms, Prime Minister Modi acknowledged the growing significance of social media these days and said, “We are living in the era of social media. You would have seen yourself, how friends on social media are consistently countering the lies of people and presenting our point of view. I congratulate them for the great work they do.”

Tamil Nadu, Prime Minister Modi enumerated a plethora of initiatives in sectors from infrastructure to investment and from the social sector to skill development and described how these projects will go a long way in transforming the lives of people in Tamil Nadu. He further said, “No government has done for Tamil Nadu as much as we have. We are working hard to bring a holistic change in the lives of poor across various sectors.”

Lashing out at the Congress party for seriously compromising on the defence abilities of our armed forces through corrupt deals and sheer mismanagement, PM Modi said, “Not many people know the damage ‘Congress Culture’ did to our defence sector. For decades, they made the defence sector a den of brokers and middlemen…the people behind attacks on our defence procurement are often middlemen from the Congress era and international forces who want to ensure that India’s military doesn’t get stronger.”

Concluding his wide ranging interaction with booth workers, Prime Minister Modi applauded the hard work and efforts of BJP Karyakartas in ensuring a strong and invincible organisation that works for the people first. He added, “The heights that the BJP has reached today are due to the efforts and sacrifices of our Karyakartas. Our yesterday was due to Karyakartas, our today is due to Karyakartas and our tomorrow will be due to Karyakartas.”

Technology is the bridge to achieve ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’: PM
Challenge of technology, when converted into opportunity, transformed ‘Dakiya’ into ‘Bank Babu’: PM

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today unveiled the book “Bridgital Nation” and presented its first copy to Shri Ratan Tata in an event organized at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg, New Delhi today. The book has been written by Shri N Chandrasekaran and Ms. Roopa Purushottam.

Technology: The bridge to achieve ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’

Addressing the gathering, PM lauded the authors for bringing out a visionary book that is replete with positivity and optimism and delves in depth about the importance of technology. He added that the book is coming out at a time when technology is positively transforming the lives of millions of Indians.

Prime Minister stressed on the need to understand that technology is a bridge and not a divider. He added that technology builds bridge between aspirations and achievement, demand and delivery, government and governance in order to achieve ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. He said that positivity, creativity and constructive mind-set is essential for fast growing aspirational India. He also emphasized on the need to build bridge between artificial intelligence and human intentions .


Governance through technology: The journey of last five years

Prime Minister narrated how technology has been a key component of government schemes in order to reform, transform and perform. He mentioned about the use of data intelligence, digital mapping and real time monitoring in Ujjwala Yojana which has transformed the lives of millions of women. He also talked about how technology has helped in empowering people through schemes like Jan Dhan Yojana and Ayushman Bharat.

Prime Minister also outlined that his government has used technology to remove silos amongst government departments and build a bridge between supply systems and demand, through innovative ideas like Government e-market Place (GeM). He explained how technology was used to create a robust Start-Up system in the country, especially in tier-2 and tier 3 cities - which has helped in the development of an entirely new ecosystem of startups.

Talking about the need to convert challenges posed by technology into opportunities, PM cited the example of the creation of India Post Payment Bank. He added that the disruption caused by technology to the entire postal organization was converted into a technology intensive banking system, benefitting millions through postal bank which transformed ‘dakiya into a Bank Babu’.

Diplomatic Corp, Government representatives & Media Personalities attend

The event witnessed participation of members of the diplomatic corps, including the Ambassadors of USA, Great Britain and the People's Republic of China. Secretaries of several Ministries of Government of India; representatives of industry bodies including CII, FICCI and NASSCOM; leading media personalities including Rajat Sharma, Navika Kumar, Rajkamal Jha, Sudhir Chaudhary, Smita Prakash; and members of the Tata Group were also present.

About the Book

The book presents a powerful vision of the future where technology and human beings co-exist in a mutually beneficial ecosystem. It argues that instead of accepting technology as replacement of human labour, India can use it as an aid to generate more jobs. The cutting edge digital tools can act as a bridge between aspirations and achievements - hence the term ‘bridgital’.
