Shri Modi campaigns in Belgaum. On May 2nd, 2013, Shri Modi addressed a grand rally in Belgaum before the Assembly elections in Karnataka this week. At the outset, Shri Modi recalled Belgaum greats like Rani Chinamma and Sangoli Rayann. Shri Modi recalled his earlier visits to Belgaum and the poor quality of infrastructure at that time. He praised the BJP government for improving the infrastructure in Karnataka.

Below are quotes from Shri Modi’s speech:

Shri Modi congratulates BJP Government on improving infrastructure in Karnataka.

Neither Bangalore nor Belgaum are new for me. 1991-1992, I was part of Yatra led by Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi. At that time, because the condition of roads was poor, where we had to reach at 8 PM we reached at 2 AM.

Today I congratulate BJP Government for the great work in road infrastructure. I congratulate leadership of Jagdish ji.

Last time I came to Belgaum, people talked about water problems. Some tehsils were such that many tankers were needed. BJP Government, in a scientific manner, has taken steps to end the water crisis.

There is water and farmers are also being explained about drip irrigation. Earlier, it was believed where sugar cane cultivation happens, micro irrigation cannot happen. Gujarat proved it otherwise. And I am proud that here in Belgaum too farmers associated with sugar cane are using micro irrigation

Under whose regime was India in the dark? For 2 days North India was in darkness. Operations in hospitals stopped, trains stopped: Shri Modi questions Prime Minister Dr. Singh

PM came to Karnataka. You are fortunate that at least he spoke. In Delhi he does not speak. PM cannot even speak in Delhi. So it is very good in Karnataka at least he said something. And he has to speak what is written.

But how did he talk about power situation? Due to whom was the nation reeling under electricity crisis? It is the current Central Government.

[PM’s] priority was to build big airports, serve big people. These were his priorities that’s why he never thought about electricity! Under who was India in the dark? For 2 days North India was in darkness. Operations in hospitals stopped, trains stopped.

Who was responsible for this? You have not been able to give answer. That time's power minister, the person responsible for the crisis was promoted. He who failed in power you gave him the gun! What thought process is this?

What is the reason you are not bringing black money back to the nation. Today the reason for the power crisis is that the UPA government doesn’t have a policy. The Centre brought out a Solar Policy after Gujarat, the central government’s policy was more liberal and yet BJP ruled states provide 90% Solar energy production. I congratulate Jagdish ji. He did not leave Karnataka at the mercy of Delhi. He created solar energy network in Karnataka.

Congress is not bothered by well being of nation. They misuse CBI. They use Government agencies to target opponents. They have time to attack BJP. But has no time to take on Pak or China

Congress is not bothered on well being of nation. They misuse CBI. They use Government agencies to target opponents.

Congress has destroyed the nation from within for their political ambitions. No institution is left which Congress has not misused. The Government shows efficiency when it comes to misusing CBI and other constitutional bodies. Such are the ditches that you have created that you will get trapped and fall in them one day.

Support is taken at threat of CBI and if someone withdraws like DMK did, there were CBI raids in hours in Chennai. A few days back they were caught in SC. Now it is question of who will resign

Mr. Golden Spoon, let me remind you of what your own father said...that to at a time when from the Parliament to the Panchayat the Congress dominated the nation's politics. He said out of every rupee, only 15p reaches the people. Which was the hand that took the 85p?

Is the nation secure with such a Government? Were the fishermen of Kerala safe, were the people of Ladakh safe? Was Sarabjit safe?

Is the nation secure with such a Government? Were the fishermen of Kerala safe, were the people of Ladakh safe? Was Sarabjit safe?

What Pakistan did was extra judicial killing. They have killed him. Once Government of India came to know Sarabjit’s life is in danger, world consensus on issue should have been created, pressure on Pakistan should have been put.After making Sarabjit family reach Pakistan you thought your work is over.

A Kerala Minister came to meet me. His fault was he said Namaste to me. A Minister from an Indian state meets a CM from another state and the Congress CM sought answer from him. But the same Congress Government serves Pakistan's PM Chicken Biryani. And that too after Pakistan beheads two of our soldiers.

What did not happen for 40 years, the BJP Government has done in 5 years. BJP Government has given great respect to Belgaum. 

They have such a big Government in Delhi but is Delhi safe? Are women safe there? Is it free from corruption? There are so many sins in Delhi, can you allow them to enter Karnataka? Bring Congress here and the same thing that is happening to Delhi and the Nation will happen in Karnataka.

Does anyone burn a house irrespective of what the problem may be at home? Then do not let Karnataka get ruined. We have the courage to go among the people that whatever mistake we made, we are willing to rectify it.

Can any Congressman say even this much? Instead, the thief is pointing at the police! Their arrogance is sky high. What did not happen for 40 years, the BJP Government has done in 5 years. BJP Government has given great respect to Belgaum. Jagdish ji got Assembly session here to Belgaum.

Political untouchability has become the Congress’ nature.

Their writ does not run with Pakistan, Maldives, Italy, China but they train guns on BJP Governments. All those who came for Vibrant Gujarat Summit, the Congress Government sent IT notices to them. Political untouchability is their nature.

Where the Lotus blooms that is where Lakshmi ji resides

We have spent 5 years washing sins of previous Congress Governments. We have to move towards Samrudha and Sukhi Karnataka. I urge you to make BJP victorious

Till Congress is there, the nation can never be one: On 5th vote for the Lotus and remove the dark clouds that may hover around Karnataka. Where the Lotus blooms, that is where Lakshmi ji resides.

Sonia ji came to Belgaum and said all kinds of things. Is price rise an issue or not? Yet she did not say anything about it.

 

Sonia ji came to Belgaum and said all kinds of things. Is price rise an issue or not? Yet she did not say anything about it.

Soniaji said that in 100 days we will bring down prices. Today country is asking for answers. We do not need RTI its open that prices are rising! Did Sonia ji talk about the fact that poor are not able to light stove, that the poor are happy did she apologize?

Soniaji, you, yourself a Mother. Poor are being troubled but you are not moved. At least you could have said few words.

Biggest contribution to Gujarat's development is by the people of Gujarat.

Biggest contribution to Gujarat's development is by the people of Gujarat. Credit goes to people. They did one thing- kept Congress away for 20 years.

A large number of people from all sections attended the rally in huge numbers. State BJP President Shri Prahlad Joshi and other Karnataka BJP leaders were present during the rally. Shri Modi greeted the crowd in Kannada and Marathi which thrilled the audience.

Shri Modi stressed that India has been the mother of democracy in the world and democracy has been an integral part of our civilization and our way of life. Babasaheb laid a strong foundation to move forward while strengthening India’s democratic heritage, said the Prime Minister.

Self-respect comes with knowledge and makes a person aware of his or her rights. Through equal rights, emerge social harmony and country progresses. Our education system and universities have this responsibility to carry the country forward on the path shown by Babasaheb, Shri Modi added

On National Education Policy, the Prime Minister said that every student has certain capabilities. These capabilities pose three questions before the student and the teacher. First- what they can to do? Second, what is their potential if they are properly taught?And,third, what they want to do? The answer to the first question is the inner strength of the students. However, if institutional strength is added to that inner strength, their development will get expanded and they will be able to do what they want to do.Quoting Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, The Prime Minister said that the NEP is aimed at fulfilling Dr Radhakrishnan’s vision of education that frees and empowers the student to participate in national development. Education management should be undertaken keeping whole world as a unit but also, focussing on Indian character of education

Talking about the growing demand for skills in the emerging Aatmnirbhar Bharat, The Prime Minister said that India is being looked upon as future centre of Artificial Intelligence,Internet of Things,big data, 3D printing, Virtual Realityandrobotics, mobile technology, geo-informatics, smart healthcareanddefence sector. To meet the requirement of skills, Indian Institutes of skills are being set up in three big metropolitans of the country. In Mumbai, first batch of Indian Institute of Skills has already started. In 2018, Future Skills Initiative was launched with NASSCOM, informed the Prime Minister. He said that we want that all universities should be multi-disciplinary as we want to give students flexibility. He called upon the Vice Chancellors to work for this goal. .

Shri Modi elaborated on Babasaheb’s conviction for equal rights and equal opportunity for all. The Prime Minister emphasized that schemes like Jandhan accounts are leading to financial inclusion of every person and through DBT money is reaching directly to their accounts. The Prime Minister reiterated country’s commitment to take the message of Babasaheb to each and every person. Developing the key places related to the life of Babasaheb as PanchTeerth is a step in that direction. He also said that measures like Jal Jeevan Mission, free housing, free electricity, support during pandemic and initiatives for women empowerment are taking forward the dreams of Babasaheb.

The Prime Minister released the following four books based on Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar's life, written by Shri Kishor Makwana:

Dr. Ambedkar Jivan Darshan,
Dr. Ambedkar Vyakti Darshan,
Dr Ambedkar Rashtra Darshan, and
Dr. Ambedkar Aayam Darshan

The Prime Minister said that that these books are not less than modern classics and convey the universal vision of Babasaheb. He hoped that such books will be widely read by students in colleges and universities.
