The alertness of Shri Narendra Modi ensured the lives of journalists and camerapersons were saved at a programme in Jamnagar district in Gujarat on 30th August 2016.

The occasion was the launch of the SAUNI Yojana, an ambitious irrigation related project that will help mitigate the water problems in the water scarce Saurashtra region of Gujarat.

As the Prime Minister and other authorities, including Chief Minister Vijay Rupani were seeing the exhibits and pushing the button to start the flow of water from the dam, Shri Modi noticed that there were still some people who were standing on the downstream side. The cameramen were blissfully unaware of the risky atmosphere they were standing in. It was at this time that Shri Modi, by raising and clapping his hands alerted them and urged them to move out. This saved precious lives just at the right time.

One of the cameramen, while talking to a news agency said that the Prime Minister has given him a new life.

Shri Modi’s alertness has time and again been the subject of much appreciation.

On 5th April 2015, when the Prime Minister was in Vigyan Bhavan to attend a conference of Chief Ministers and Chief Justices, a photographer fell down. The person who lent him a helping hand was none other than Shri Narendra Modi. Even this anecdote has become widely popular.

"Jaago Bharat Ke Laal" — How PM Modi motivated citizens to keep up the fight against Article 370

On 5th August 2019, in a historic move, Article 370 and Article 35 A were abrogated. This led to complete integration of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of the country.

The temporary Articles, which were in place for almost 70 odd years, denied rights to the people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. Both these Articles were a huge hurdle in development of the region. Abrogation of these Articles fulfilled the dream of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and countless citizens.

Since the early 90s, Shri Narendra Modi had raised his voice against the Article 370 and motivated people to keep up their fight against it. He spread awareness how the Abrogation of these Articles would benefit our nation.

Bhavna Thakur, a Karyakarta from Gujarat reminisced the time when Shri Modi, during the organisational days, used to discuss about the Article 370. In a video, she said, "When Modi Ji used to take lectures during the organisational days, he would tell us a lot about the nation as well as the Article 370. He talked about the difficulties we had to face due to the Article 370 and how its abrogation will be good for the nation."

Smt. Thakur further said that to motivate all the Karyakartas, Shri Modi even used to sing a song.

"The song is in Gujarati. It goes like: Kashmir Bharat Nu Kevay, Eto Koi Thi Na Chhinvay, Jando Farki Rahio Chhe Hindustan No, Jaago Jaago Re Bharat Maa Na Laal, which means wake up all Indians, no one can take Kashmir from us. It is an integral part of our nation and will always be," recalled Bhavna Thakur.
