Shri Narendra Modi addresses Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra in parts of Kutch district
Massive support for the Yatra and Shri Modi as people from all age groups and communities join the Yatra.
Till now only filled ditches of Congress rule. March towards a fully developed will Gujarat start after December: Shri Modi
Money that was earlier enriching pockets of middlemen now being used for development initiatives: Shri Modi
For the last 8 years have we heard any good news from Delhi? Asks Shri Modi
Just like Maharani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi, who affirmed ‘Meri Jhansi Nahi Doongi’ (I will not give my Jhansi), the people of Gujarat need to take the determination ‘Humara Gujarat Nahi Denge’ (we will not give our Gujarat).
On Friday 5th October 2012 Shri Narendra Modi addressed Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra in parts of Kutch district. Shri Modi addressed very well attended public meetings in Rapar and Bhachau. People cutting across all age groups and communities came out to extend their support to the Yatra. Shri Modi spoke at length about the development in Gujarat and came down heavily on the Congress for their Disha of divide and rule!
Shri Modi asked the people if they are happy with the pace of development in the last few years to which the people enthusiastically roared, “Yes!” But, Shri Modi said that what he has done so far is merely filling the ditches of 40 years of Congress rule. After December the march towards a developed Gujarat will commence.
The Chief Minister spoke about the success of Jyotigram Yojana and affirmed that go to any part of Gujarat, within a radius of 25 km you can see some or the other development work doing on. He added that people often ask ‘where is Modi getting the money from’ to which Shri Modi replied that the money that was earlier enriching the pockets of a select few is now being utilized for the development of the people.
In his speeches the Chief Minister came down heavily on the Congress and said that they have been spreading lies and defaming Gujarat for a long time and would be wiped out in the coming elections. Shri Modi shared that he is often questioned on his silence on the constant lies but this silence is because he has immense faith in the people who will give a befitting reply to these elements.
He asked the people if they have heard any good news from Delhi in the past 8 years and added that when the world say 21st century as being India’s century, for 48 hours 19 states and 60 crore people were plunged into darkness! At that time, the world noted that Gujarat was shining. On the advertisements of the Congress to change the Disha (direction) and Dasha of Gujarat, Shri Modi stated that the Disha of the Congress is coal scam, 2G spectrum scam, CWG scam, corruption, dynasty politics and asked if Gujarat wanted to adopt this Disha.
Shri Modi said that while the Disha of the Congress is divide and rule, the Disha of the BJP is Sauno Saath, Sauno Vikas (All together, growth for all). He wondered what would have happened if there was a Congress Government in power post the 2001 Kutch Quake and said that there would have been a 2nd quake in Gandhinagar then. Shri Modi categorically said that it is because the people of Gujarat have kept Congress away for so many years that that their Disha is that of development. He declared -just like Maharani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi, who affirmed ‘Meri Jhansi Nahi Doongi’ (I will not give my Jhansi), the people of Gujarat need to take the determination ‘Humara Gujarat Nahi Denge’ (we will not give our Gujarat). On the visit of UPA Chairperson Mrs. Sonia Gandhi to Gujarat a few days ago, Shri Modi asked the people if they believed her when she said there is no development under Modi. He asked the people to do justice from those who defame Gujarat. He also said Mrs. Sonia Gandhi’s advisors need to advise her properly and shared that it was a report from the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation that Mrs. Gandhi along with her family are so closely associated that has praised Gujarat for its development.
The Chief Minister paid rich tributes to Swami Vivekananda and said that he has got a great opportunity to see the affection of the people during this on going Vivekananda Yuva Vikas Yatra.
Kutch and Shri Modi: an unbreakable bond of development
On 26th January 2001 a massive quake struck Kutch that completely destroyed the region. Back then, Kutch and even Gujarat was written off by people but in a quick span, not only was the entire state up on its feet but also embraced the fast lane towards inclusive development.
Today, under the vibrant leadership of Shri Narendra Modi Kutch has emerged as one of the fastest growing districts in India. Shri Modi put Kutch on the world map with the pioneering Ran Utsav, the tourist festival that has drawn thousands of tourists from around the world.
With the same Government, the same machinery, the same system Shri Modi has transformed this region and shown the world what the power of development is! Under Shri Modi, the proverbial saying, “Kutch Nahi Dekha to Kuch Nahi Dekha’ (If you have not seen Kutch, you have not seen anything else) stands more vindicated than ever before!
