Addressing a massive BJP public meeting at Faridabad, Shri Narendra Modi came down heavily on the Prime Minister for the FDI in retail and referring to the Nuclear Deal in 2008 and FDI now, wondered why the Prime Minister becomes active when there are polls in USA. He also asked whether UPA Chairperson Mrs. Sonia Gandhi’s trip to USA has anything to do with the decision on FDI in retail.

In his speech, Shri Modi highlighted the old historical ties between Gujarat and Haryana. He said that after the Battle of Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna came to Dwarka in Gujarat whereas it was Maharishi Dayananda Saraswati, a proud son of Gujarat who went to Punjab and Haryana with his message. He recalled spending 6 years in Haryana while working for the Party.

The Chief Minister asked Dr. Manmohan Singh that the nation wants to know why he became Singham only twice- once during the Nuclear Deal in 2008 and the other in the case of FDI in retail. He further asked why the Prime Minister could not become Singham for India rather than being so in the interest of foreigners. Shri Modi pointed out that both the times the Prime Minister became Singham (in 2008 and 2012), USA has been in election year and wanted to know if there is a connect between the two.  He sought an answer from the Prime Minister on whether the FDI in retail has anything to do with Mrs. Sonia Gandhi’s visit to USA, considering it was announced on the second day of her return from USA.

The Chief Minister shared that USA President Barack Obama Tweeted that Americans should buy from small shopkeepers but wondered why our PM could not see the position President Obama took.

On the massive Coal Scam under the Congress, Shri Modi said that an English daily has reported the PM as saying that Mr. Ahmed Patel has a role in the coal allocations but this news was suppressed. Mincing no words, Shri Modi stated that it seems like the Congress President has a role in all the scams and that the PM needs to answer the nation on this.

He also spoke about Gujarat’s advances in the tourism sector declared that they have worked for this for the last 10 years.

The BJP public meeting that is being held after the conclusion of the party’s 3 day National executive Meet was attended by top leaders and Chief Ministers of the party.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today interacted with Governors of States regarding the Covid-19 situation and ongoing vaccination drive in the country, through video conferencing.

Prime Minister said that in the battle against Covid, along with the vaccines, our values and sense of duty are our biggest strengths. Praising the citizens who participated in this battle last year considering it their duty, he said that the same feeling of Janbhagidari needs to be encouraged now as well. He said that the role of the Governors, through appropriate utilization of their social capacity, thus becomes all the more critical to achieving this. Governors are an important link to ensure better coordination between State Governments and society, he said, adding that the combined power of all community organizations, political parties, NGOs and social institutions needs to be harnessed.

Prime Minister suggested that the Governors can actively engage to ensure that social institutions collaborate seamlessly with the State Governments towards micro containment. He said that their social network can help ensure an increase in the capacity of ambulances, ventilators and oxygen in hospitals. Along with spreading the message about vaccination and treatment, the Governors can also spread awareness about AYUSH related remedies.

Prime Minister noted that our youth, our workforce, is an important part of our economy. Hence, it is important to ensure that our youth follows all Covid related protocols and precautions. He said that the Governors’ role is also critical in ensuring the greater engagement of our students in University campuses towards this Janbhagidari. We also need to focus on better utilization of facilities at University and College campuses, he added. He said that just like last year, NCC and NSS also have a key role to play this year as well. Prime Minister said that the Governors are an important pillar of Janbhagidari in this battle and their coordination with State Governments and guidance to institutions of the State will further strengthen the nation’s resolve.

Discussing the rise in the number of Covid cases, the Prime Minister said that in this stage of the fight against the virus, the country stands to gain from last year’s experience and improved healthcare capacity. He discussed the increase RTPCR testing capacity and noted that the country has become Aatmanirbhar with respect to kits and other material related to testing. All this has led to a reduction in the cost of RTPCR tests also. He added that most of the products related to testing are also available on the GeM portal. Prime Minister emphasized the significance of increasing tracking, tracing and testing, and said that RTPCR testing needs to be increased from 60% to 70%. He said that it is pertinent to ensure that more and more people get tested.

Prime Minister underlined that the government is committed to ensuring adequate availability of vaccines. He highlighted that India has become the fastest nation to reach the landmark of 10 crore vaccinations. Noting the positive impact of Tika Utsav in the last four days, he said that in this period, the vaccination drive was expanded and new vaccination centres also came up.


The Vice President of India, Union Home Minister and Union Health Minister also attended the interaction.

The Vice President appreciated the Prime Minister for leading the fight against Covid and his proactive steps to develop the infrastructure required to tackle the pandemic. He also highlighted the scientific community's contribution in giving a vaccine to India and the whole world. He also talked about the contribution of healthcare workers, sanitation workers, and other frontline workers who have played a vital role during the pandemic.

The Vice President called upon the Governors to bring up a coordinated front by leading all-party meetings in their respective states and engaging with civil society organisations to spread awareness about covid-appropriate behaviour. The Vice president said that a 'Team India spirit' cutting across policy lines should be adopted, and in this regard, Governors as the 'Guardians of the State' could guide the State Governments.

Union Home Minister stressed the importance of saving each and every life. Union Health Secretary gave a presentation on Covid cases and vaccination drive. He gave an overview of how India has followed a proactive and pre-emptive approach in this endeavour.

The Governors shared details of how their respective states are tackling the spread of the virus and coordinating activities towards ensuring a smooth implementation of the vaccination drive, while also mentioning the deficiencies of healthcare facilities in the States.

They gave suggestions for further improvement in the efforts and shared plans of how Janbhagidari can be increased through the active social engagement of various groups.
