INDI alliance people are a great danger to the security of country: PM Modi in Gurdaspur, Punjab
The problem with Congress is that it has no faith in India: PM Modi in Gurdaspur, Punjab
Skewed version of history left generations unaware of the true events, such as the tragedy of partition in Punjab: PM Modi slams Congress party

Where there is Congress, there are problems and where there is BJP, there are solutions: PM Modi in Jalandhar

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed spirited public gatherings in Gurdaspur and Jalandhar, Punjab, where he paid his respects to the sacred land and reflected upon the special bond between Punjab and the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Addressing the gathering PM Modi highlighted, the INDI alliance’s misgovernance in the state and said, “Who knows the real face of the INDI alliance better than Punjab? They've inflicted the most wounds on our Punjab. The wound of division after independence, the long period of instability due to selfishness, a long period of unrest in Punjab, an attack on the brotherhood of Punjab, and an insult to our faith, what hasn't Congress done in Punjab? Here, they fueled separatism. Then they orchestrated a massacre of Sikhs in Delhi. As long as Congress was in the Central government, they saved the rioters. It's Modi who opened the files of the Sikh riots. It's Modi who got the culprits punished. Even today, Congress and its ally party are troubled by this. That's why these people keep abusing Modi day and night."

Speaking about the INDI alliance governance and its strategy concerning National Security, PM Modi said, “These INDI alliance people are a great danger to the security of the country. They are talking about reintroducing Article 370 in Kashmir. They want terrorism back in Kashmir. They want to hand over Kashmir to separatists again. They will send messages of friendship to Pakistan again. They will send roses to Pakistan. Pakistan will carry out bomb blasts.”

“There will be terrorist attacks on the country. Congress will say, we have to talk no matter what. For this, Congress has already started creating an atmosphere. Their leaders are saying, Pakistan has an atomic bomb. Their people are saying, we'll have to live in fear of Pakistan. These INDI alliance people are speaking Pakistan's language,” he added.

Discarding the anti-national thought process of the Congress and INDI alliance, PM Modi said, “The problem with Congress is that it has no faith in India. The scions of Congress tarnish the country's image when they go abroad. They say that India is not a nation. Therefore, they want to change the nation's identity. The mentor of the scions has said that the construction of the Ram temple and celebrating Ram Navami in the country threatens the identity of India.”

Emphasizing the need for rapid development, PM Modi assured the people of Gurdaspur, Punjab, and the entire country of his unwavering commitment to their progress and prosperity. He said, “Punjab's development is Modi's priority. The BJP government is building highways like the Delhi-Katra highway and the Amritsar-Pathankot highway here. BJP is developing railway facilities here.”

“Our effort is to create new opportunities in Punjab, to benefit the farmers. In the last 10 years, we have procured record amounts of rice and wheat across Punjab. The MSP, which was fixed during the Congress government, has been increased by two and a half times. Farmers are receiving PM Kisan Samman Nidhi for seeds, fertilizers, and other necessities,” PM Modi added.

Regarding the ongoing elections, PM Modi urged the citizens to choose leadership that prioritizes the nation's interests. Contrasting the BJP-led NDA’s clear vision for a developed India with the divisive and dynastic politics of the INDI alliance, PM Modi called for support for the BJP to ensure continued progress and stability.

In his second mega rally of the day in Jalandhar, Punjab, PM Modi highlighted the shifting political sentiments. He noted that people no longer want to vote for Congress and the INDI Alliance, as it would mean wasting their votes. Emphasizing the strong support in Punjab, he concluded with a resonant call, ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar’!

PM Modi criticized the Congress for its appeasement politics, claiming that the party favored its vote bank at the expense of accurate historical narratives. He noted that Congress had favoured its own family and Mughal families in history books, neglecting the sacrifices of our Sahibzadas. The PM also asserted that this skewed version of history left generations unaware of the true events, such as the tragedy of partition in Punjab. ‘Congress’, he said, “hid these truths to protect its vote bank and avoid exposing its misdeeds”.

PM Modi underscored the BJP-NDA government's commitment to Hindu and Sikh families left behind during the partition, citing the CAA law as a significant step towards granting them Indian citizenship. He heavily disregarded Congress for opposing the CAA and stated that Congress intends to repeal the law if they come to power, denying these communities their rightful citizenship.

The PM explicitly compared the Jhadu Party (AAP) to Congress, calling it a "photocopy party" that has adopted Congress's oppressive tactics. He strongly condemned their actions against media houses that resist their threats, exposing their true nature. He also made the audience aware of the destructive alliance between Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab, stressing that voting for either party is voting against Punjab's interests.

Highlighting the Congress party's lack of faith in India and its attempts to undermine the nation's identity, PM Modi urged voters to reject such divisive politics. He underscored the BJP's commitment to Punjab's development, citing initiatives to improve infrastructure, support farmers, and promote food processing industries. PM Modi sought the blessings of the people of Gurdaspur and Jalandhar, and urged them to vote for BJP candidates in the upcoming elections to secure a brighter future for Punjab and the nation.
