"Narendra Modi talks about development of Saurashtra"

The BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Shri Narendra Modi addressed lakhs of BJP Karyakartas across 6 Lok Sabha seats of Saurashtra as a part of Vijay Vishwas Sneh Sammelan. In the last four days, Shri Narendra Modi has covered all the Lok Sabha constituencies of Gujarat and interacted with workers via videoconference. Shri Modi affirmed that winning elections may be important for a party but the BJP is not merely a machine to win elections. “We are not here for Rajkaran but for Rashtrakaran,” Shri Modi declared. 

Shri Modi called for the growth of the Karyakartas and the growth of the organisation for the overall growth of the Party. “Vyakti ka vikas aur Sangathan ka vistar hona chahiye(development of the personality and expansion of the organisation must happen),” said Shri Modi. He added that due to spending years in the Opposition, BJP Karyakartas are well acquainted with what struggle is but now that the Party has been scaling greater heights the nature of work and responsibility of the party will also change.

Shri Modi told the Karyakartas that today all eyes are on Gujarat. “Those who are looking at national interest are looking at Gujarat. Those who are not and are only bothered about themselves are also bringing in Gujarat. Something happens in Assam, they bring Gujarat; something happens in Uttarakhand, they bring Gujarat. It has become a fashion to drag Gujarat’s name in everything. And they will not talk about what they have done they will just put the blame on Gujarat,” avowed the Chief Minister. He shared that Gujarat has passed tough Agniparikshas in the last 12 years and scared new heights of development.

He stated that instead of serving in a people friendly manner, the Congress has been taking revenge on why the BJP won the elections in 2007 and onwards. But, Shri Modi expressed confidence that the truth speaks louder than everything else.

In the address, he said that it is the moral duty of the BJP not to allow the anti-people centre to continue in office because we cannot see the future of our youth in the dark. He affirmed, “We do not want to do wrong and we do not want to allow wrong to be done. We need the same spirit that was seen during the freedom struggle so that we can free the nation from misgovernance and give Surajya in 2014.” 

Shri Modi talked about the development of Saurashtra especially in the fields of education and coastal development. He said that the development journey of Saurashtra was enhanced after the Government took efforts to bring water to the region. He paid rich tributes to Sardar Patel and called for support for the Run for Unity on 15th December.

PM addresses 6th edition of International Conference on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure
April 24, 2024
“We must invest in resilient infrastructure today for a better tomorrow”
“The world can be resilient collectively, only when each country is resilient individually”
“To achieve shared resilience, we must support the most vulnerable”

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi addressed the 6th edition of the International Conference on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure via video message today.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister extended a warm welcome to all the dignitaries and said that their participation would strengthen the global discourse and decisions on the important issue of Disaster Resilient Infrastructure. Reflecting on the impressive growth of the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure since its inception in 2019, the Prime Minister underlined that it is now a global coalition of 39 countries and 7 organizations. “This is a good sign for the future”, he added.

Noting the growing frequency and severity of natural disasters where the damage caused is usually evaluated in dollars, the Prime Minister highlighted that its true impact on people, families and communities is beyond numbers. Shri Modi drew attention to the impact of natural disasters on humans and mentioned earthquakes destroying houses making thousands of people homeless and natural disasters disrupting water and sewage systems putting people’s health at risk. He also touched upon natural disasters that can impact energy plants leading to potentially dangerous situations.

The Prime Minister emphasized, “We must invest in resilient infrastructure today for a better tomorrow.” He stressed that resilience must be factored into new infrastructure creation while also being a part of post-disaster rebuilding. The Prime Minister pointed out that the focus should shift towards resilience in infrastructure once relief and rehabilitation are carried out after a disaster strikes.

Underlining that nature and disasters have no borders, the Prime Minister said that disasters and disruptions cause widespread impact in a highly interconnected world. “The world can be resilient collectively, only when each country is resilient individually”, PM Modi said. He stressed the importance of shared resilience due to shared risks and said that CDRI and this conference will help the world come together for this collective mission.

“To achieve shared resilience, we must support the most vulnerable”, the Prime Minister remarked. Referring to the Small Island Developing States at high risk of disasters, Prime Minister Modi mentioned a CDRI program for funding projects across 13 such places. He gave examples of resilient housing in Dominica, resilient transport networks in Papua New Guinea, and enhanced early warning systems in the Dominican Republic and Fiji. He expressed satisfaction that CDRI also has a focus on the Global South.

The Prime Minister recalled the formation of a new Disaster Risk Reduction Working Group with financing at the heart of its discussions during India’s G20 Presidency and said that such steps will take the world to a resilient future along with the growth of CDRI. He concluded his address by expressing confidence about the fruitful deliberations at ICDRI over the next two days.
