Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra reaches Sanand 

This is the land of Sardar Patel, none of the lies and arm-twisting of the Congress will succeed: Shri Modi 

The way Sanand has been put on the world map is indicative of how change can be brought about. Till now you only heard Nano, Ford, Maruti, Peugeot but there is lot more to come: Shri Modi 

New Textile Policy will transform Sanand-Viramgam stretch. New industries and lakhs of jobs will come: Shri Modi 

Congress spread lies of Nano and defamed Sanand in front of the world. They are also hesitant to support good causes such as Gutka Mukti Abhiyan: Shri Modi 

We heard of diamond, gold being stolen but this Government has done a scam of Rs. 2 lac crore and looted coal too: Shri Modi


On the evening of 11th September, Shri Narendra Modi’s Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra reached the town of Sanand. Despite the rain, a massive crowd assembled at the venue to hear Shri Modi speak. In his address, the Chief Minister spoke about the development initiatives of the Government and took potshots at the Congress for their negative politics. Shri Modi affirmed that in the land of Sardar Patel, none of the lies and arm-twisting of the Congress would succeed.

Shri Modi said in the last few years Sanand has prominently earned a place in the map of the world and this is a prominent example of how change can be brought about. He added that till now the people have only heard of ‘Nano’, ‘Ford’, ‘Maruti’, Peugeot’ but there is a lot more to come. Shri Modi spoke about how the New Textile Policy of the Gujarat Government would further transform the Sanand-Viramgam stretch, with more textile industries and lakhs of jobs coming for the youth. 

The Chief Minister came down heavily against the regressive attitude of the Congress. He cited how the Congress spread canards on the Nano issue and defamed Sanand in front of the whole world. He shared that on the announcement of the Textile Policy, the Maharashtra Textile Minister had to rush to Gujarat and assure investors on coming to his state. Shri Modi said that there should be competition of development, let each one bring a policy and then we can see who shines! Shri Modi affirmed that the Congress lure for power is so much that they are defaming anything good happening in Gujarat. He said that Gujarat has taken the revolutionary step to comprehensively erase Gutka from the state and a lot of women of Gujarat have come out in support of this move. Yet, the Congress has been hesitant to support this move and extend solidary for a Gutka Mukt Gujarat, such has become their mindset.

On the recent spurt of advertisements by the Congress, Shri Modi remarked the Congress ad keeps playing 90 times but wondered what Disha is the Congress talking about. Mincing no words, he said that since the last 60 years the people have come to know the Disha of the Congress- of casteism, communalism, nepotism, curfews and asked whether the people of Gujarat want this Disha to which the loud answer was “NO!”

Shri Modi came down heavily on the Congress’ repeated tendencies of promising to the people but not delivering on it. He cited the instance of their assurance that prices would fall in 100 days of them coming to power but that has far from happened.

On the brazen corruption of the UPA, Shri Modi stated that people have heard of diamond, gold etc. being stolen but it is a shame that this Government had not sparred coal and done corruption to the tune of Rs. 2 lac crore.

Shri Modi declared that the people of Gujarat are not beggars who go to Delhi with a begging bowl. He brought out the blatant instances of injustice by the Centre against Gujarat and further added that when they put this in the form of an ad, panic struck the Congress who went to Court against it. Shri Modi said the ‘Slap’ to Gujarat would automatically disappear if they correct the injustices.

In his speech Shri Modi spoke about some initiatives such as eMPOWER, the efforts towards skill development and the how Gujarat’s coasts were becoming gateway to India’s progress.

Cabinet Ministers of Gujarat and leaders of the Gujarat BJP were present on the occasion.

MoS Dr. Jitendra Singh’s Statement after meeting with the political parties of Jammu-Kashmir under the leadership of the Hon'ble Prime Minister
June 24, 2021

A discussion with the political parties of Jammu-Kashmir under the leadership of the Hon'ble Prime Minister has just ended. This has been a very positive effort towards the development and strengthening of democracy in Jammu-Kashmir. The meeting took place in a very cordial atmosphere. All the participants expressed their full allegiance to the democracy of India and the Constitution of India.

The Home Minister apprised all the leaders of the improvement in the situation in Jammu-Kashmir.

The Prime Minister listened to every party’s arguments and suggestions with all seriousness and he appreciated the fact that all the people's representatives shared their point of view with an open mind. The Prime Minister laid special emphasis on two important issues in the meeting. He said that we all have to work together to take democracy to the grassroots in Jammu-Kashmir. Secondly, there should be all-round development in Jammu-Kashmir and development should reach every region and every community. It is necessary that there should be an atmosphere of cooperation and public participation.

Hon'ble Prime Minister also pointed out that elections to Panchayati Raj and other local bodies have been successfully held in Jammu-Kashmir. There is improvement in the security situation. About 12,000 crore rupees have directly reached the panchayats after the conclusion of elections. This has accelerated the pace of development in the villages.

The Prime Minister said that we have to approach the next important step related to the democratic process in Jammu-Kashmir i.e. assembly elections. The process of delimitation has to be completed expeditiously so that every region and every section gets adequate political representation in the assembly. It is necessary to give a proper representation to the Dalits, backwards and people living in tribal areas.

There was a detailed discussion in the meeting regarding the participation of everybody in the process of delimitation. All the parties present in the meeting have agreed to participate in this process.

The Prime Minister also emphasized the cooperation of all the stakeholders to take Jammu-Kashmir on the path of peace and prosperity. He said that Jammu-Kashmir is moving out of the vicious circle of violence and moving towards stability. New hope and new confidence have emerged among the people of Jammu-Kashmir.

The PM also said that we will have to work day and night to strengthen this trust and work together to improve this confidence. Today's meeting is an important step for strengthening the democracy and the development and prosperity of Jammu-Kashmir. I thank all the political parties for attending today's meeting.
