Today, as the nation takes decisive strides, Wardha's blessings are crucial: PM Modi at Wardha rally

Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended & addressed a public meeting in Wardha, Maharashtra. The PM was enamoured by the audience. The PM too showered his love and admiration on the crowd.

Initiating his virtuous address, the PM regarded Wardha as the land of a great confluence of spirituality and patriotism. PM Modi also reminded his audience that, “this election of 2024 is an election to fulfil the dream of a Viksit Bharat and a self-reliant India.” “Bapu envisioned this dream pre-independence. Today, as the nation takes decisive strides, Wardha's blessings are crucial. Your overwhelming presence, and the strong backing from Wardha and Amravati, signify that the aim of a developed Maharashtra and India is within reach. Maharashtra echoes today: 'Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar!'”, the PM added with confidence.

Confiding in the massive crowd, PM Modi shared that, “In a remarkable decade of progress, this humble servant has honoured the unspoken, lifting 250 million out of poverty, illuminating every village, providing water connections to 110 million, granting PM-Awas to 40 million impoverished families, and integrating over 500 million into the economy through banking. Each achievement is a testament to our collective dedication and determination towards a brighter, more inclusive future."

PM Modi did not hesitate to expose the realities of the opposition and remarked, “The thinking of Congress and Indi Alliance has always been anti-development and anti-farmer. That is why the condition of farmers in the country has remained so bad for decades.” “A stone laid in the family's name remained unfinished for generations, causing suffering in Vidarbha under Congress rule. Today, our government prioritizes Vidarbha's needs, with Eknath Shinde, Devendra Fadnavis, and Ajit Pawar committed to serving you all,” the PM further mentioned.

Sharing the plight of farmers from Wardha and Amravati, PM Modi observed that, “The irrigation crisis in Wardha and Amravati has long plagued local farmers, with past governments failing to address it sincerely. In 2014, 99 major irrigation projects nationwide, many in Maharashtra, were stalled for decades,” but he also gave hope that, “Under the NDA government, rapid progress is underway, notably with the imminent completion of the Lower Wardha and Lower Pedhi Irrigation Projects, promising to be a lifeline for farmers. Additionally, numerous smaller projects aim to boost irrigation across the region."

“We have separately identified the oranges of Amravati and turmeric of Wardha under ODOP so that the farmers here can benefit from it. For financial assistance to farmers, money from PM Kisan Samman Nidhi is also being sent directly into the accounts,” PM Modi shared.

In a sorry state of affairs, the PM launched his blistering attack against the opposition and said, “In contrast to BJP's development agenda, the INDI Alliance struggles with a lack of substantial issues, resorting to a politics of insults. Inviting leaders opposed to Sanatan principles to Maharashtra, they boycott events like the Ayodhya Ram temple inauguration, dismissing it as hypocrisy. However, their denial contradicts the nation's deep devotion on such occasions, revealing the true face of the INDI Alliance.”
“Eknath Shinde ji's government has resolved to redevelop ‘Lahanuji Maharaj Sansthan’ here. If these people become strong then they will oppose that also. Therefore, you have to account for the sins of Congress on this land of Shivaji Maharaj,” the PM warned.

"The Congress party admits defeat and resorts to threats of chaos post-elections. Their inclination towards constitutional suppression and emergency echoes past tactics. However, the nation desires a resolute, stable government. Voting for Congress or the INDI Alliance is futile.” Hence, PM Modi urged that “Maharashtra's votes must prioritize development. To all on April 26th, let's vote for progress."

In his concluding remarks, PM Modi encouraged the audience to ensure a resounding victory for the BJP by casting record-breaking votes. He expressed gratitude to every individual in the crowd and motivated them to spread his heartfelt regards to every doorstep in Maharashtra.
