Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2024, Prime Minister Narendra Modi received a warm welcome from the people of Bhiwani-Mahendragarh as he addressed a public rally in Haryana. He began his speech by extending greetings on the auspicious occasion of ‘Buddha Purnima.’ He remarked that in Haryana, a glass of Rabdi and a roti with onion are enough to satisfy one’s hunger. Amidst the enthusiastic crowd, PM Modi said, “The people of Haryana only echo one sentiment: ‘Fir ek Baar Modi Sarkar’.”

Emphasizing the significance of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, PM Modi stated, “The 2024 elections will determine the future of India.” He criticized the I.N.D.I alliance, asserting that they are inherently unstable and adhere to the ‘5 PMs, 5 years’ formula. He remarked, “I.N.D.I alliance only spreads the politics of communalism, casteism & dynasty.”

Highlighting Congress's character, PM Modi said, “In the 2024 elections, people have understood the true face of Congress.” He accused Congress of prioritizing vote banks, even supporting the partition of India for this reason. He added that Congress aims to provide religion-based reservations at the expense of SC-ST-OBC reservations. He further criticized TMC, a part of the I.N.D.I alliance, for granting OBC reservations to illegal immigrants from the minority community. PM Modi said that even the Calcutta High Court overturned this blatant injustice being done to members of the OBC community and reprimanded the TMC government for granting religion-based reservations to illegal immigrants belonging to minority communities at the cost of reservations meant for the OBCs. He declared, “Reservation for SC-ST-OBCs is their ‘Adhikar’ & Modi is the ‘Chowkidar’ of this ‘Adhikar’.”

Taking a dig at Congress, PM Modi said, “I.N.D.I alliance can go to any extent to secure their vote-banks.” He accused Congress of developing an anti-Shri Ram stance and opposing the Pran-Pratishtha of Shri Ram, to lock up the Shri Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

PM Modi further criticized Congress for disrespecting both faith and the Tiranga. He said, “Congress not only insults our faith but also our Tiranga.” He accused Congress of keeping Kashmir away from India for 70 years and preventing the hoisting of the Tiranga in Kashmir. He added, “Congress betrayed the trust of our Indian Bravehearts in the case of OROP.” He contrasted Congress’s allocation of only Rs. 500 crores with his government's earmarking of more than Rs. 1.25 lakh crores to comprehensively resolve the issue.

Rebuking the Congress model of governance, PM Modi said, “Congress converted Haryana into a machine of ‘Loot’.” He accused past Congress governments of deceiving Haryana’s youth and promoting a Transfer-Posting industry. He noted, “In the last decade, the face of infrastructure has changed, enabling holistic development.” He promised, “The next 5 years will be dedicated to India’s Semiconductors, Drones, Food Processing & Startups,” and emphasized that the people of Haryana would play a key role in these sectors.

Accusing Congress of betraying Haryana's farmers, PM Modi said, “Haryana's farmers have suffered Congress-led betrayal.” He emphasized his government’s prioritization of Haryana’s irrigation potential and the MSP provided for more than 14 products in the state. He also mentioned showcasing Bajra-made products from Haryana to international delegates during the G20 meeting, highlighting the efforts of Haryana's farmers.

In conclusion, PM Modi acknowledged the contributions of Chaudhary Bansi Lal Ji to the development of Mahendragarh-Bhiwani and called upon all voters to wholeheartedly support the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
