On one side there is Congress and BRS and on the other side is BJP. They have the mentality to rule the people while BJP is dedicated to serving the people: PM Modi
Only BJP can guarantee social justice to the people of Telangana. Only BJP can take Telangana on the golden path of development: PM Modi in Secunderabad
The BJP made the laws, about the atrocities on SC and ST, stricter. We ensured that the poor got a bank account, gas connection, toilet, homes: PM Modi
BRS government allied with Delhi's AAP govt in corruption. They are involved in the Liquor Scam. They cooperate not in work but in corruption: PM Modi

Election fervour intensified in Telangana as Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the huge crowd in Secunderabad today ahead of the state assembly election. At the event, PM Modi said, “After independence, you have seen many governments in the country. Our government is such that its top priority is the welfare of the poor and the underprivileged have to be given priority. The mantra on which BJP works is ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas aur Sabka Prayas’. We are committed to ensuring social justice.”

PM Modi criticized the Telangana government, particularly expressing betrayal towards the Madiga community. He said that when Telangana was formed after many sacrifices, BRS leaders forgot the people of the state and went to thank Congress leaders first. “During the days of the movement, you were promised that only a Dalit would be made the first CM of Telangana. But after the creation of the state, KCR took over the CM’s chair, crushing every Dalit aspiration,” he added.

Launching a scathing attack on the BRS, Prime Minister Modi stated that BRS had also promised to give land to Dalits. He said, “Did the BRS fulfil this promise? BRS had talked about giving you thousands of crores of rupees through Dalit Bandhu Scheme. Did you benefit from it? The truth is that this scheme has become the scheme of relatives of BRS MLAs. The BRS government had also promised to waive off the loans of farmers. But farmers did not get the benefit of this either. The government here has given you Irrigation Scams instead of Irrigation Schemes.

In Secunderabad, PM Modi took aim at both BRS and Congress and asked the people to be cautious of both the parties. He said, “BRS is anti-Dalit and Congress is no less than that. While BRS insulted Baba Saheb Ambedkar by demanding a new Constitution, the history of Congress is also similar. Congress opposed Baba Saheb and did not allow him to win the elections twice. Congress did not allow Baba Saheb’s photo to be installed in the Central Hall of the old Parliament House for decades. Because of Congress, Baba Saheb was not even given Bharat Ratna for decades.”

PM Modi went all guns blazing against the I.N.D.I. Alliance, he criticized the Congress-led alliance, particularly highlighting the Chief Minister of Bihar’s involvement in what he termed as casteist politics. He reminisced, “I remember the CM of Bihar continuously insulted my close friend and Dalit leader Ram Vilas Paswan ji. Even when it came to the question of Rajya Sabha seat for Ram Vilas Paswan, he was reluctant to support him.”

The Prime Minister recounted another instance where Bihar CM Nitish Kumar insulted another Dalit leader, the former CM of Bihar, Jitan Ram Manjhi. The recent incident involved the alleged humiliation of Jitan Ram Manjhi in the Bihar Assembly, suggesting a pattern of arrogance and disrespect towards Dalits, which PM Modi asserted as the identity of Congress and its allies.

Deciphering the mutual understanding between BRS and Congress, Prime Minister Modi asserted that there is little to differentiate between the two when it comes to corruption. The PM stated, “Generally in India, different states cooperate with other states for development schemes. But the BRS government, in collaboration with Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party, has committed a liquor scam worth thousands of crores of rupees. These people cooperate in corruption, not in work.”

“The BRS party of Telangana indulges in blatant corruption in collaboration with the Aam Aadmi Party, a staunch ally of the Congress in Delhi. Then, the same BRS is also doing the drama of fighting against Congress. The people of Telangana must be very careful of this duplicity,” the PM added.

Addressing the massive crowd, the PM iterated, “Congress and BRS are together. They play their games behind the curtains. On one side is Congress and BRS, and on the other is BJP. They have the mentality to rule the people while BJP is dedicated to serving the people.”

Emphasizing the BJP government’s commitment to the welfare of poor, the PM announced the extension of the PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana for the next five years. PM Modi said, “Keeping in mind the interest of the farmers of Telangana, the Central Government is continuously increasing the government procurement of paddy. In the past years, paddy worth more than Rs 1,30,000 crore has been purchased here. The central government also takes boiled rice from farmers.”

“Now our government has decided that in this Kharif season, an additional 20 lakh metric tonnes of boiled rice will be purchased from the farmers of Telangana. With this, our farmers will get more benefits of MSP,” he further added.

Singling out the injustice done to the Madiga community in Telangana, PM Modi said, “We are committed to ending this injustice as soon as possible. I know that there are many people here who have struggled for their rights for a long time. It is our promise that we will soon form a committee, which will create a new path for your empowerment.”

Wrapping up his remarks, PM Modi asserted, “Only BJP can guarantee social justice to the people of Telangana. Only BJP can take Telangana on the golden path of development. I am confident that BJP and your support will play an important role in the formation of double engine government in Telangana .”

Srinagar Viksit Bharat Ambassadors Unite for 'Viksit Bharat, Viksit Kashmir'
April 20, 2024

Srinagar hosted a momentous gathering under the banner of the Viksit Bharat Ambassador or VBA 2024. Held at the prestigious Radisson Collection, the event served as a unique platform, bringing together diverse voices and perspectives to foster the nation's collective advancement towards development.

Graced by the esteemed presence of Union Minister Shri Hardeep Singh Puri as the Chief Guest, the event saw the attendance of over 400 distinguished members of society, representing influencers, industry stalwarts, environmentalists, and young minds, including first-time voters. Presidents of Chambers of Commerce, Federation of Kashmir Industrial Corporation, House Boat Owners Association, and members of the writers' association were also present.

The VBA 2024 meetup began with an interesting panel discussion on Viksit Kashmir, which focused on the symbiotic relationship between industry growth and sustainable development. This was followed by an interactive session by Minister Puri, who engaged with the attendees through an engaging presentation. Another event highlight was the live doodle capture by a local artist of the discussions.

Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri discussed how India has changed in the last decade. He said India is on track to become one of the world's top three economies, surpassing Germany and Japan soon.


"The country is set to surpass Germany and Japan and will become the world's third-largest economy by 2027-28," he said.


According to official estimates, India's economy is projected to reach a remarkable $40 trillion by 2040. Presently, the economy stands at approximately $3.5 trillion.

He also stressed that India's progress is incomplete without a developed Kashmir.


"Bharat cannot be Viksit without a Viksit Kashmir," he said.

Hardeep Puri reflected on India's economic journey, noting that in the 1700s, India contributed a significant 25% to the global GDP. However, as experts documented, this figure gradually dwindled to a mere 2% by 1947.


He highlighted how India, once renowned as the 'sone ki chidiya' (golden bird), lost its economic strength during British colonial rule and continued to struggle even after gaining independence, remaining categorized under the 'Fragile Five' until 2014.


Puri emphasized that the true shift in India's economic trajectory commenced under the Modi government. Over the past decade, the nation has ascended from among the top 11 economies to ranking among the top 5 globally.

The Union Minister also encouraged everyone to participate in the Viksit Bharat 2047 mission, emphasizing that achieving this dream requires the active engagement and coordination of all "ambassadors" of change.

He highlighted India's rapid progress in metro network development, stating that the operational metro network spans approximately 950 kilometres. He expressed confidence that within the next 2-3 years, India's metro network will expand to become the second-largest globally, surpassing that of the United States.


Regarding Jammu and Kashmir, he mentioned that through the Smart project, over 68 projects totalling Rs 6,800 crores were conceptualized, with Rs 3,200 crores worth of projects already completed.


He further stated that Jammu and Kashmir possesses more potential than Switzerland but has faced setbacks due to man-made crises. He emphasized the Modi government's dedication to the comprehensive development of the region.

The minister highlighted a significant government policy shift from women-centred to women-led development. Drawing from his extensive experience as a diplomat spanning 39 years, he shared that when a country transitions to women-led development, there is typically a substantial GDP increase of 20-30%. 

He mentioned that the government is actively pursuing this objective, citing examples such as the Awas Yojana, where houses are registered in the names of women household members, and the implementation of 33% reservation for women in elected bodies as part of this broader mission. 

He also provided insight into the transformative impact of the Modi government's welfare policies on people's lives. He highlighted the Ujjwala Yojana, noting that 32 crore individuals have received LPG cylinders, a significant increase from the 14 crore connections in 2014. Additionally, he mentioned the expansion of the gas pipeline network, which has grown from 14,000 km to over 20,000 km over the past ten years.
