By admitting their defeat already, the Congress and its ‘Mahamilawati’ allies have also accepted by now that Modi government is going to be formed after these elections: PM Modi
There is clear difference between UPA and NDA- we want to empower the poorest people while they are only hungry for power and money: PM Modi in Jharkhand
The transformation of Jharkhand has become a talking point in the country due to the good governance facilitated by the state and Centre-level BJP governments: Prime Minister Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed his third public rally for the day in Chaibasa constituency of Jharkhand where he took digs at the Opposition parties for betraying the expectations of the people whenever they come to come to power to grab power and enrich themselves and their allies.

PM Modi took on the Opposition alliance ‘Mahamilwat’ and said, “The Congress and its ‘Mahamilawati’ allies have also accepted by now that Modi government is going to be formed after the Lok Sabha elections which is why they have admitted their defeat after only four phases have been completed. These parties have realized that their divisive and discriminatory agenda of governance no longer resonates with the majority of Indians; the people of today’s India want a stable, strong and transparent government that puts their issues at priority rather than an adulterated mix of opportunistic allies who come together to form a government for their selfish interests.”

Highlighting how the Congress and BJP are starkly different in their priorities and approaches, Prime Minister Modi said, “There is clear difference between UPA and NDA- we want to empower the poorest communities and provide them with access to all basic necessities of life such as shelter, electricity and toilets while they are only hungry for power and money even if that comes at the cost of people’s welfare.”

Speaking about the politics in Jharkhand and the state’s transformation under the BJP government, PM Modi said, “I recently reminded the Congress party about the corruption scandals of their ex-PM and today I want to challenge them that if they want to fight the elections on issues, they do so in the remaining two phases. But since they are bankrupt on issues on which the government can be criticized, they will use their efforts in denying that despite ruling the country for seven decades, Congress party left the country in a dire state in 2014. Since then, the BJP government has been continuously working to revive the nation’s progress and Jharkhand is a shining example of our efforts. The transformation of Jharkhand has become a talking point in the country due to the good governance facilitated by the state and Centre-level BJP governments.”

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi chaired the first meeting of the National Ganga Council in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh today.

The Council has been given overall responsibility for superintendence of pollution prevention and rejuvenation of River Ganga Basin, including Ganga and its tributaries. The first meeting of the Council was aimed at reinforcing the importance of a ‘Ganga-centric’ approach in all departments of the concerned states as well as relevant Central Ministries.

Today’s meeting was attended by Union Ministers for Jal Shakti, Environment, Agriculture and Rural Development, Health, Urban Affairs, Power, Tourism, Shipping and Chief Ministers of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Vice Chairman Niti Aayog and other senior officials. The state of West Bengal was not present in the meeting and Jharkhand did not participate because of the ongoing elections and the Model Code of Conduct being in force.

Prime Minister, while reviewing the progress of work done and deliberating on various aspects of cleaning river Ganga with a focus on ‘swachhta’, ‘aviralta’ and ‘nirmalta’. He observed that Maa Ganga is the holiest river on the sub-continent and its rejuvenation should embody a shining example of cooperative federalism. Prime Minister said that rejuvenation of Ganga has been a long pending challenge for the country. He noted that a lot had been accomplished since the Government took up ‘Namami Gange’ in 2014 as a comprehensive initiative integrating various government efforts and activities with the aim of pollution abatement, conservation and rejuvenation of Ganga, notable achievements being zero waste creation by paper mills and reduction in pollution from tanneries; but much more needs to be done.

For the first time, the Central Government had made commitment of Rs. 20,000 crores for the period 2015-20 to the five states through which Ganga passes, to ensure adequate as well as uninterrupted water flows in the river. Rs. 7700 crores have already been spent so far, prominently for construction of new sewage treatment plants.

Prime Minister emphasized that an improvement framework for Nirmal Ganga would require fullest cooperation from the public at large and greater awareness through dissemination of best practices from cities situated along the banks of national rivers. Efficiency of District Ganga Committees should be improved in all districts, in order to provide a effective framework for expeditious implementation of plans.

The Government has set up the Clean Ganga Fund (CGF) to facilitate contributions from individuals, NRIs, corporate entities for funding Ganga rejuvenation projects. Hon’ble PM has personally donated Rs. 16.53 crores to CGF, from the amount realized from auction of the gifts he received since 2014 and the prize money of the Seoul Peace prize.

Prime Minister urged for a holistic thinking process where ‘Namami Gange’ evolves to ‘Arth Ganga’ or a sustainable development model with a focus on economic activities related to Ganga. As part of this process, farmers should be encouraged to engage in sustainable agriculture practices, including zero budget farming, planting of fruit trees and building plant nurseries on the banks of Ganga. Priority could be given to women Self Help Groups and ex-servicemen organizations for these programs. Such practices, along with creation of infrastructure for water sports and development of camp sites, cycling and walking tracks etc , would help to tap the ‘hybrid’ tourism potential of the river basin area- for purposes of religious as well as adventure tourism. The income generated from encouraging eco-tourism and Ganga wildlife conservation and cruise tourism etc. would help to generate sustainable income streams for cleaning of Ganga.

For monitoring the work progress and activities from various schemes and initiatives under Namami Gange and Arth Ganga, PM also gave directions for the setting up of a Digital Dashboard where data from villages and urban bodies should be monitored on a daily basis by Niti Ayog and Ministry of Jal Shakti. Prime Minister also said that like aspirational districts, all districts bordering Ganga should be made a focus area for monitoring efforts under Namami Gange.

Prior to the meeting, Prime Minister paid floral tributes to legendary freedom fighter Chandrashekhar Azad and viewed an exhibition on ‘Namami Gange’ interventions and projects at the Chandrashekhar Azad Agriculture University. Later in the day, Prime Minister visited Atal Ghat and also inspected the successfully completed work of cleaning at Sisamau Nala.
