"Bure din chale gaye"
Acchhe din are not for middlemen and power brokers

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today asserted that the "Bure Din" (bad days) of the UPA Government are over. Addressing a public meeting in scorching heat at Deendayal Dham near Mathura, the Prime Minister said that the era of a fresh corruption scandal every day, and Government being run by remote control, has ended.

The Prime Minister thanked the people of India for putting an end to the bure din, through their decisive mandate one year ago. He asked the large gathering what would have happened if the UPA Government had continued for one more year. He said instead of that, people today no longer heard of incidents of corruption, nepotism and remote control. Giving the example of successful coal block auctions which netted Rs. 3 lakh crore, the Prime Minister said that he was working as "Pradhan Santri" and would not let anyone loot Government money through illicit means. He said there were hundreds of "power circles" and multiple power centres in Delhi, which had now been destroyed, thanks to the clear mandate given to the NDA Government.

The Prime Minister highlighted the various welfare measures and steps taken by the Government for the common man, the poor and the farmer. He spoke about how the 15 crore bank accounts opened under the Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojana would eliminate middlemen, and how benefits such as LPG subsidy were being transferred directly to bank accounts.

He explained initiatives such as soil health cards, and revival of fertilizer plants, to help farmers.

The Prime Minister also spoke of measures to ease the life of the common man, including self attestation of documents, and scrapping of about 1300 outdated laws.

He explained how steps such as the launch of the Mudra Bank, and the social security teams such as Atal Pension Yojana, would transform the lives of the poor.

The Prime Minister said the whole world was looking at India with fresh hope, and foreign investment had increased eight times over the last year.

The Prime Minister visited the home of Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay and paid homage to him.

PM Modi attracts a huge crowd at the Basti rally in UP

Today, India's stature and respect on the global stage have significantly increased: PM Modi in Basti
Every vote cast for SP or Congress will be wasted: PM Modi targets Opposition while addressing a rally in Basti

Ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections, PM Modi marked his special presence in Basti, UP, and vowed to continue his fight against the opposition. He emphasized his unwavering vision for a ‘Viksit Uttar Pradesh’. The PM urged citizens to actively participate in the democratic process for the betterment of the nation.

Initiating his speech, PM Modi dwelt on the significance of the ongoing elections and remarked, “Five phases of elections have solidified the path for the Modi government’s third term. Now, every vote cast for SP or Congress will be wasted, as they won't form the government. Your vote should go to the party that will lead the country. Modi's government is the one to support for a Viksit and Atmanirbhar Bharat.”

Highlighting India's growing influence, PM Modi made the crowd aware with pride, “Today, India's stature and respect on the global stage have significantly increased. When India speaks, the world listens; when India decides, the world follows. The nation that once harboured terrorists and threatened us now finds itself in a dire situation, struggling even for food grains.”

With conviction in his voice, PM Modi established India’s strong stance under his leadership and mentioned that “Pakistan is devastated, yet its sympathizers in the SP and Congress try to scare India, saying we should fear Pakistan's atom bomb. Why should India be afraid? Today, there is no weak Congress government but a strong Modi government.” He further challenged that, ‘Bharat Aaj Ghar Mein Ghus Kar Maarta Hai’!”

PM Modi explicitly took a dig at the opposition, making their unrealistic expectations and past failures prominent, “I am surprised by the repeated release of flop films starring the ‘Shehzadas’ of SP and Congress. Now, these two are spreading rumours together, claiming they will win 79 seats in UP. This is nothing but daydreaming. On June 4, the people of UP will wake them up from their slumber, and then they'll surely blame the EVMs.”

PM Modi also exposed the true colours of the INDI Alliance, criticizing their blatant appeasement tactics and disregard for the nation's heritage. “Our country waited 500 years for the Ram temple, but these INDI leaders have a problem with the Ram Mandir and Lord Ram himself. Senior SP leaders dismiss the Ram temple as useless and label its devotees as hypocrites. Another INDI leader even called the Ram temple unholy. They openly speak of destroying Sanatan Dharma, led by Congress. The “Shehzada” of Congress aim to overturn the Supreme Court's decision on the Ram temple,” he added.

The PM called out the Congress and SP for their sudden pretence of upholding the Constitution, reminding the audience of their historical hypocrisy and ongoing attempts to undermine its principles, “This is the same Congress that tried to abolish it by imposing an emergency and the same SP that always opposed reservations for Dalits. Now, they go against the Constitution's spirit, advocating for reservations based on religion. They are taking away reservations from Dalits and backward classes to give them to Muslims.”

PM Modi emphasized the importance of remembering past mistakes in order to prevent empowering those who have tarnished Uttar Pradesh's progress and safety, he further said, “Our sisters and daughters were afraid to leave their homes. People feared buying land due to mafia takeovers. Remember how goons and mafias were welcomed by SP? Rioters received special treatment, and orders were issued to release terrorists from jail. We cannot afford to make the same mistake in this election that would boost their morale again.”

In his ending statement, the PM urged each and every voter of UP to ensure a decisive victory with their votes for BJP. PM Modi also asked each and everyone from the audience to convey his gratitude and best regards, door-to-door.
