PM Says, World Now Views India with ‘Vishwas’ Not a Nation of Scams

On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) booth-level workers through video-conferencing. There he said that the country had transformed from among the “fragile five” nations to the world’s fastest-growing economy under his leadership.

Also, he spoke on the “#5yearchallenge” against the backdrop of #10yearchallenge which is recently trending on social media platforms.

Adding that the country had moved from scams to schemes in the last five years, he said,

“Earlier, the Indian governments would be in national and international headlines for scams. Now, the focus has shifted to new schemes.”

Further, he mentioned that how five years ago, there was only news about scams, electricity shortage and financial crises. Even the world saw India as a nation of such negative newscasts only.

But now this perspective has changed; at present, the world views the country with “Vishwas” (belief and trust), not as a nation about scams.

Then he started speaking on the subject of Maoist violence (Naxalites or Naxals). In that context, he said that the intimidation was once overpowering but now had been restricted and contained to some districts only.

Then he also added that the courage of security forces and people’s support in past five years had assured that the nation had conquered the battle against Naxalite–Maoist insurgency.

Moreover, he mentioned that there was the time when headlines were all about that the country did not have enough toilets which were causing discomfort to women. But now more than nine crore toilets have been constructed in our country.

He said,

“Five years ago, the country did not have enough toilets. Now, nine crore toilets had been constructed and sanitation coverage in the country had gone up from 38 percent to 98 percent.”

Plus he mentioned that when the National Democratic Alliance came to power in 2014, sanitation coverage in the country had gone up from 38% to 98%.

Further, he said that only four years ago, 70 crore Indians had to go without electricity because of northern (power) grid failure, but today numerous crores of households had received the benefit of electricity.

He said,

“There was a time when 70 crore Indians had to go without electricity. Today, several crore households had received electricity connection.”

Meanwhile, he mentioned that there was a time when the country’s economy had faced the challenge of high inflation and low growth, and now it is exactly the opposite of that. We are witnessing low inflation and high growth, and this is the transformation that happened over the last four-and-a-half years.

In the last four years, we have received FDI worth $263 billion. This is 45 percent of the FDI received in the last 18 years.”

Also, he mentioned how his government is focusing on removing the obstacles which were blocking India from achieving its potential. He said,

Overall, we anticipate a total of ₹55,000 crore of investment in all these projects.”

Moreover, founder and chairman of Tsingshan Industry, Guangda Xiang from China also expressed his emotions. He said,

“Our first step towards India was in Vibrant Gujarat 2017 when we signed an MoU for setting up a big scale stainless steel complex in Mundra in cooperation with Indian partners. Within one year of signing the MoU we started construction of our first phase project, which will be completed in record time of 14 months.”

Meanwhile, Kumar Mangalam Birla Chairman of Aditya Birla Group promised an investment of Rs. 15,000 crore in Gujarat in various sectors. He said,

PM Said in Odisha We Have Put an End to the Loot of Public Money

PM Said in Odisha, “We Have Put an End to the Loot of Public Money”

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on a visit to Balangir, Odisha. While addressing a BJP rally there, PM Modi said that there was a conspiracy to drive him out as his government had ended the siphoning of Rs. 90,000 crore through forge document trail.

PM Modi said,

“We have put an end to the loot of public money (which was the case) during the previous governments by middlemen. We have busted more than six crore fake ration cards, LPG connections, and bogus pensions.”

Then, the Prime Minister unveiled a slew of central projects worth over Rs 1,550 crore at an official function and said,

“Money was being siphoned using names of children who were not born, in the name of people who did not exist.”

Further, he stated that as the Centre has put the interests of few people in jeopardy, people are making collaborations to remove the country’s “chowkidar” (Him) by leveling false allegations against him. It was said by the prime minister without taking any particular names.

Also, PM laid the foundation stone for various development works like Sambalpur-Angul lines spanning 813 km and electrification of Jharsaguda-Vizianagaram, completed at the cost of Rs 1,085 crore.

Moreover, the Prime Minister began some development works worth Rs 189 crore with a goal of increasing the 14.2 km of Barpali-Dungaripali and 17.354 km of the Balangir-Deogaon railway lines. Additionally, he inaugurated a Multi-Modal Logistics Park (MMLP) at Jharsaguda.

Also, he laid the 15 km-long Balangir-Bichhupali railway line at the cost of Rs 115 crore that now constitutes the new 289 km Balangir Khurda Road and Titlagarh-Sambalpur line at Balangir.

Further, he said,

“Who will protect the rights of the poor? We have stopped the loot of Rs 90,000 crore. This money used to go into the pockets of people who used to purchase big cars and fly in aeroplanes. But now these things have stopped, so their anger against Modi is natural. Now they want to take revenge against me. But with your blessings, their efforts will not be successful.”

This was Modi’s third visit to the state in the last three weeks.

Moreover, he said that India was known worldwide for its progress in science, but only a few were done for its distribution. In the same context, he said,

“The past governments left these (culture and modernity) to their fate. The past governments ruled like ‘sultanates’ and neglected our rich heritage. They ignored our glorious civilization and failed to pay attention to their preservation.”

PM Released a Rs 350 Coin on 352nd Birth Anniversary of 10th Sikh Guru

PM Released a Rs 350 Coin on 352nd Birth Anniversary of 10th Sikh Guru

On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi released a commemorative coin marking the 352nd birth anniversary of 10th Sikh Guru Guru Gobind Singh Ji at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg, New Delhi.

The event was held at PM Modi’s residence. It was also attended by former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and many other Sikh dignitaries.

Addressing the event, PM Modi applauded the government decision to construct Kartarpur Corridor and promised justice to the families of 1984 anti-Sikh riots victims.

Prime Minister Modi said,

“Kartarpur corridor project is an attempt to atone for the mistakes committed during India’s partition in August 1947. We had failed to ensure that the sacred site of Guru remains on our side of the border. This project is authentic proof of compensating that loss.”

Speaking on the 1984 anti-Sikh riots which occurred after the assassination of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh bodyguards Beant Singh and Satwant Singh where around 2,700 Sikhs were killed across India, he said,

“Our government will ensure that all the culprits are behind the bars and victims’ families get justice.”

Further, by saying the Sikh gurus “taught us to be on the side of justice,” PM targeted the opposition party on multiple fronts. He said the central government is “trying to get justice for the people who suffered during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.”

Moreover, Prime Minister Modi, while talking about the values Guru Gobind Singh taught to humanity, said:

“Guru Govind Singh, the feeder of humanity to Khalsa sect, was dedicated to Indian culture and traditions.

Today, I have got a great opportunity to release the commemorative coin to mark the 352nd Parkash Purab of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. His coin is already imprinted in our hearts for many years. It is, however, just a small gesture to pay respect and express our faith in his principles. Guru Gobind Singh Ji was not only a Guru (teacher) but also a great devotee. He was not only an exceptional fighter but also a noteworthy poet and creative writer. He was against injustice and a firm supporter of peace. He sacrificed his own son to protect thousands of sons of the nation. Guru Gobind Singh Ji is a true example of patriotism, peace, humanity, and patience.”

Moreover, he said,

“Guru Gobind Singh Ji was a great warrior, philosopher poet, and guru. He fought against oppression and injustice. His teachings to people focused on breaking the barriers of religion and caste. His message of love, peace, and sacrifice are equally relevant today.”

PM Modi also flagged the Kartarpur Corridor as an achievement of his government. Further, he mentioned that now the followers of Guru Nanak Ji won’t have to look through a telescope for darshan (view) of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib. It is one of the holiest Sikh shrines where Guru Nanak Dev spent 18 years of his life.

He said in a veiled attack on the then Congress government,

“A mistake took place in August 1947. It (the corridor) is an atonement of the mistake. An important place of our guru was only a few kilometers away. But it could not be made the part (of India during partition) … the corridor is an effort to reduce the damage..”

In the same context, Sushma Swaraj, Foreign Minister, said that the dialogue between the two nations “is not connected with only the Kartarpur corridor… The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, the dialogue can start”.

On concluding the event, PM said that now his government plans to celebrate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev. He pointed out that the events will not only be held in the states, but also across the country. He mentioned that the Indian embassies abroad would also organize programmes as part of the celebrations.

Modi Says, “Centre & State Can Work Together For Welfare Of Nation”

Modi Says, “Centre & State Can Work Together For Welfare Of Nation”

On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the doors of Modi Government and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are open for an alliance in the state for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Since 2019 election is around the corner, and we have seen there is no specific party in Tamil Nadu which completely supports Modi Govt, so during the talk of an alliance, PM Modi said that “the doors of his party are open.”

This expression of Prime Minister came in the time while having interaction with booth level BJP workers of five parliamentary constituencies namely Cuddalore, Dharmapuri, Arakkonam, Krishnagiri and Erode in Tamil Nadu.

In the same interaction, one of the workers questioned that there were rumors that the BJP may ally with the ruling Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) or Megastar Rajinikanth who will also float a political party in the coming Lok Sabha elections in 2019.

Hence, PM Modi said,

“Strong NDA is an article of faith for us. It is not a compulsion. Even when the BJP won a majority on its own, we preferred to run the government with our allies. We cherish our old friends and our doors are always open for parties. But more than political issues, the winning alliance is the alliance of the people.”

Moreover, Modi called the question interesting and said that each media person wants to know about it. So, he said,

“Atal ji [Atal Bihari Vajpayee] brought a new culture in Indian politics — that is of successful coalition politics. He gave top importance to regional aspirations. He showed that the Centre and the state can work together for the welfare of our nation.

But Atalji indeed was in direct contrast to the Congress which has never cared for regional aspirations. Congress ill-treated regional parties, regional aspirations, and regional people because they felt that they alone have the right to be in power.”

Moreover, according to reports, the Prime Minister said that it was the arrogance of Congress Party when in of the meeting, they announced that their party did not want an alliance.

He said,

“Even today, when the Congress does not find a place in the alliance in Uttar Pradesh, their leaders are back to their arrogance and say we will surprise everyone.”

Furthermore, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi acknowledged that Tamil Nadu took plenty of initiatives in areas from investment to infrastructure and from the skill development to the social sector and described how these projects would go a long way in transforming the lives of people.

He said,

“No government has done for Tamil Nadu as much as we have. We are working hard to bring a holistic change in the lives of poor across various sectors.”

Moreover, he applauded the efforts and hard work of BJP workers in ensuring a strong and invincible organization which works for the humankind first.

PM stated:

“The heights that the BJP has reached today are due to the efforts and sacrifices of our workers. Our yesterday was due to workers, our today is due to workers and our tomorrow will be due to workers.”

Rajya Sabha Passes the Quota Bill, PM Calls it a ‘Victory of Social Justice’

After the “Landmark Moment” when Lok Sabha passed the bill, Its Rajya Sabha, who passed the bill on Wednesday. And, Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed the passing of the 124th Constitution Amendment Bill 2019 “a victory for Social Justice.” He also said that this passage would help the youth of India to “showcase their prowess and contribute towards India’s transformation.”

narendra modi ji

Rajya Sabha yesterday passed the bill to provide 10 percent reservation for economically backward general castes in jobs as well as in educational institutes. “Delighted” over the passage of the Constitution (124th amendment) Bill, Modi said he was glad to see such extensive support for it.

It was necessary that the Constitutional Amendment Bill must get the approval of at least 50 percent of the Assemblies as well as the President of the country before becoming a law.

When the law was proposed by the Modi Government, many opposition parties said that it is nothing but a hypocritical and frivolous exercise which is prepared in a hustle as elections are near. Even though the opposition parties supported the bill, they stated that it was displayed without any “qualifiable” records and is bound to be investigated by the Supreme Court.

Thawar Chand Gehlot (Social Justice Minister) said,

“This decision has not been taken in haste. It is brought with good intention keeping in view the welfare of the poor in General category.”

A 10-hour-long debate took place in Rajya Sabha before becoming the bill. Despite opposition from few parties, most of the members in the Upper House of the Parliament agreed to go ahead with the bill.

Shortly after the passage of the bill, Prime Minister took to Twitter to praise the Parliament for passing the historic amendment.

PM Modi wrote,

“Delighted the Rajya Sabha has passed The Constitution (One Hundred And Twenty-Fourth Amendment) Bill, 2019. Glad to see such widespread support for the Bill. The House also witnessed a vibrant debate, where several members expressed their insightful opinions.”

“Passage of The Constitution (One Hundred And Twenty-Fourth Amendment) Bill, 2019 in both Houses of Parliament is a victory for social justice. It ensures a wider canvas for our Yuva Shakti to showcase their prowess and contribute towards India’s transformation.”

“By passing The Constitution (One Hundred And Twenty-Fourth Amendment) Bill, 2019, we pay tributes to the makers of our Constitution and the great freedom fighters, who envisioned an India that is strong and inclusive.”

As per the last step of the legislative process, the quota bill will now go to the President for approval. And as soon as it gets approval, it will become a law. And, then it will be ready to give 10 percent reservation to economically backward sections in the forward castes in central and state government jobs as well as education.
