PM Modi campaigns in Raipur, Chhattisgarh

Published By : Admin | July 7, 2023 | 11:44 IST
Congress can play whatever games it wants to, but no one can stop Modi from taking Chhattisgarh ahead. Modi is son of poor, understand their pain: PM Modi
Modi is guarantee of action against corruption. One who has done wrong, won't be spared: PM Modi in Raipur
Congress cannot breathe without corruption. Corruption is Congress ideology. It is a guarantee of commission: PM Modi
Chhattisgarh is like an ATM for Congress: PM Modi in Raipur

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a public meeting in Chhattisgarh’s Raipur. PM Modi expressed, "The formation of Chhattisgarh saw a significant contribution from the BJP. We possess a profound understanding of the people of Chhattisgarh and are well-aware of their requirements. Consequently, the government of BJP in Delhi is fully committed to propelling the rapid progress of Chhattisgarh."

Criticizing the Congress party for failing to deliver on their commitments, Prime Minister Modi remarked, "Among the thirty-six promises made by the Congress to Chhattisgarh was the pledge to impose a prohibition on liquor in the state. However, rather than implementing a ban, the Congress has been involved in a liquor scam worth thousands of crores in Chhattisgarh. This indicates that the Congress party has betrayed the trust of the mothers and sisters of Chhattisgarh as well as the state itself."

Furthermore, PM Modi said, “In Chhattisgarh, there is hardly any department or project that is free from scam. The coal mafia, sand mafia, and land mafia, among numerous others, have thrived unchecked. They have even impeded the progress of the Jal Jeevan Mission. From the state's leadership to ministers and officials, serious allegations of corruption have been levelled.”

PM Modi remarked, “Today the Government of Chhattisgarh has become a model of corruption and misrule of the Congress. That's why today only one voice is being raised from Chhattisgarh all around – ‘Badalbi, Badalbo,… Ae Dari Congress Ke Sarkaarle Badalbo’.”

Coming heavily on opposition parties, PM Modi asserted, “Some people get angry when I say that Congress is the guarantee of corruption and commission. They resort to cursing Modi. However, their displeasure serves as evidence that our government is moving in the right direction. Those who engage in corrupt practices are attempting to unite against us today. Those who were once bitter enemies are now seeking excuses to come together. They believe that by doing so, they can intimidate and disorient Modi.”

“However, they should understand this: if they guarantee corruption, then Modi guarantees decisive action against corruption. Those who have committed wrongdoings will not escape accountability. I have the courage to state this boldly because everything I have, everything I am, has been bestowed upon me by you, by our nation. These individuals may threaten to bury me, and conspire against me, but fear has no place in Modi's heart,” he added.

PM Modi talked about the several schemes and developments that helped the state. He said, “Over the past 9 years, you have witnessed the outcomes of our relentless efforts to combat the issue of Naxalism. Just a few years ago, the country had approximately 126 districts affected by Naxalism. However, we have successfully reduced that number to around 70 now.”

Stressing on the real guarantee of the BJP, PM Modi stated, “Under the Ayushman Bharat scheme, 40 lakh poor people have been treated free of cost in Chhattisgarh. The farmers of Chhattisgarh have received Rs 6,500 crore from the PM Fasal Bima Yojana. This is the real guarantee of BJP. More than 6,600 crore rupees of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi have been received by about 40 lakh farmers here. This is the real guarantee of BJP.”

Accusing the Congress for neglecting public development schemes, PM Modi said, "The BJP is a party that prioritizes the welfare of the poor and is deeply concerned about their well-being. But Congress is the biggest enemy of the poor. The Congress government hinders the implementation of schemes initiated by the BJP government in Delhi, such as the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awas Yojana. This obstruction is clearly evident. The central government had planned to construct 15 lakh houses for the underprivileged in Chhattisgarh, but the progress has been impeded. Congress has always used the tribal society as a vote bank."

During the public meeting, PM Modi said, “It is the BJP government that has got them their rights by including them in the list of tribes. This is the BJP government, which had created a separate Tribal Welfare Ministry. It is the BJP government which has opened hundreds of new Eklavya Model Schools for tribal children. It is the BJP government which has opened thousands of Van Dhan Kendras for tribal farmers.” The PM also addressed the extensive campaign launched to combat sickle cell anaemia.

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.
