#MainBhiChowkidar: PM Modi to Address 25 Lakh Watchmen Today

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is all set to strengthen its “Main Bhi Chowkidar” campaign. Very few days are left to go for Lok Sabha election 2019.

Today, on the eve of Holi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address over 25 lakh Chowkidars through audio bridge medium and will also share the colors of Holi with them.

Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni and Party’s media head said this is a part of a series of initiatives under the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidaar’ outreach programme.

Baluni marked that watchmen work round-the-clock even without taking any leaves, therefore PM Modi’s initiative is to focus at highlighting the works of people like them and added that it was a necessary measure for developing the lot of the last man in line with the party’s motto of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas‘ (With all, development for all).

He further asserted that the people from different walks of life lent their support to the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar‘ campaign.

With PM Modi prefixing ‘Chowkidar’ to his Twitter handle, the party launched its ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar‘ campaign on Saturday. Many BJP leaders including party president Amit Shah and several Union Ministers followed suit and pre-fixed ‘Chowkidar’ to their names on the microblogging site.

Not only they added Chowkidar to name, but also released its ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ caller tune on Wednesday. And, many cellular networks are providing facility to their subscribers to access and download the caller tune.

Many people are joining the movement and sharing it on social media.

The BJP’s official handle on the microblogging platform tweeted,

“You may now make #MainBhiChowkidar song as your Caller Tune.

• Dial 57878617 from your Airtel mobile phone.

• Dial 53711116475 from your Vodafone mobile phone.

• Dial 5678911116415 from your Idea mobile phone.

• Jio users can type chowkidar and send SMS to 56789.”

Also PM Modi took to Twitter and posted,

“इन्होंने चौकीदारों का अपमान किया, आज पूरा देश चौकीदार बनकर खड़ा हो गया है।

चौकीदार शब्द देशभक्ति का पर्याय बन गया है।”

On Tuesday, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Union Minister, declared that with the ‘Main Bhi Chowkidar’ hashtag, the campaign has become a “people’s movement” tweeted 20 lakh times and had 1680 crore impressions.

BJP media cell convenor Anil Baluni told IANS,

“The outreach programme, which is already turning into a mass movement, is aimed at the common man of the country who silently work in the background and as such is one of the invisible pillars of the country. The address with chowkidars on March 20 is a significant step towards meeting the objectives of `antyodaya` and `sabka saath sabka vikas`.”

After today’s conference, the Prime Minister is also scheduled to interact on 31st of this month with all people who have pledged to support the Main Bhi Chowkidar campaign from 500 places in the country.

PM Modi Holds CCS Meet; Foreign Secretary Confirms IAF Airstrikes

After the Indian Air Force fighter planes hit a Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp across the Line of Control in Balakot, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the Cabinet Committee on Security headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi holds a meet.

Twelve days after the Pulwama terror attack which left 40 CRPF jawans dead, the strike on terror camp comes. This all occurred on 14 February when a Jaish terrorist rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into a CRPF convoy on Jammu-Srinagar highway.

According to some sources, at around 3.30am the IAF fighters used Mirage-2000 jets with laser-guided bombs weighing 1,000 pounds.

The meeting was held at the Prime Minister’s residence at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg in New Delhi.
It was the second CCS meeting in less than two weeks which was attended by Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, and other Senior Officials. The first one was a day after the Pulwama attack, February 15.

The Prime Minister had declared after the first meeting that the security forces are given a “free hand” to deal with the Jammu and Kashmir terrorism attacks.

Hours after the conference held at PM House, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale gave out the details of the audacious operation executed by the IAF.

In the press conference, he confirmed the daring strikes by IAF on Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) hideout terror camps in Balakot, as Balakot is believed to be the biggest JeM hideout in Pakistan.

Mr. Gokhale said,

“In an intelligence-led operation, India struck the biggest Jaish facility in Balakot on early hours of Tuesday, in which top leaders have been eliminated. India calls it non-military pre-preemptive action to counter multiple potential fidayeen attacks.

In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commander, and Jihadis were eliminated.”

Many of the political people took to social media and posted regarding Air Strike Today.

After confirmation from Indian Government, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said,

“Terrorist camp has been destroyed. PM had said on the first day, the free hand has been given to forces. I congratulate PM. What all citizen wanted has been done.”

Also, Congress President Rahul Gandhi tweeted,

“🇮🇳 I salute the pilots of the IAF. 🇮🇳”

Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport & Highways, posted,

“भारत के सैनिकों- आप पर हमें गर्व है।प्रधानमंत्री श्री नरेंद्र मोदी जी के मजबूत नेतृत्व में आज हर देशवासी गौरवान्वित महसूस कर रहा है। आतंकियों के पनाहगार याद रखे ये नया भारत है, हम किसि को छेड़ते नहीं, पर किसी ने छेड़ा तो उसे छोड़ेंगे भी नहीं। जय हिंद”

Amit Shah, National President of Bharatiya Janata Party, also tweeted,

“Today’s strong action shows the will and resolve of a New India.
Our New India will not spare any acts of terror and their perpetrators and patrons.”

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saluted the pilots of the Indian Air Force (IAF) and tweeted,

“I salute the bravery of Indian Air Force pilots who have made us proud by striking terror targets in Pakistan”

Additional Director General tweeted the poem by Hindi poet Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’,

“’क्षमाशील हो रिपु-समक्ष
तुम हुए विनीत जितना ही,
दुष्ट कौरवों ने तुमको
कायर समझा उतना ही।

सच पूछो, तो शर में ही
बसती है दीप्ति विनय की,
सन्धि-वचन संपूज्य उसी का जिसमें शक्ति विजय की।’

#IndianArmy
#AlwaysReady”

The Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmer’s Welfare, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, wrote,

“ये मोदी का हिंदुस्तान है, घर में घुसेगा भी और मारेगा भी,
Air Force carried out aerial strike early morning today at terror camps across the LoC and Completely destroyed it
एक एक क़तरा ख़ून का हिसाब होगा !ये तो एक शुरुआत है .. ये देश नहीं झुकने दूंगा…#Balakot #Surgicalstrike2”

Salute to IAF Fighters!

PM Modi Launches 100 Rs Coin in Memory of Atal Bihari Vajpayee

PM Modi Launches 100 Rs Coin in Memory of Atal Bihari Vajpayee

On Monday, PM Modi introduces a commemorative coin worth Rs 100 in honor of Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. It is the highest denomination of coin in India. The former PM Atal Ji served best of his 93 years and died at the AIIMS in the national capital following a prolonged illness. It is his 94th birth anniversary on Tuesday.

In the event, PM Modi said,

“The mind is not ready to believe that Atal Ji is no longer with us. He was a stalwart loved and respected across all sections of society.”

Many political figures were present at the event including Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, BJP National President Amit Shah, Minister of State for Culture Mahesh Sharma, veteran BJP leader, and Vajpayee’s contemporary LK Advani.

Moreover, PM Modi said referring to Atal Ji,

“The party which Atal Ji built has become among the largest political parties. Generations of Karyakartas were fortunate to be mentored by him.

As a speaker, he was unparalleled.

He is among the best orators our nation has produced: PM @narendramodi”

Moreover, he said,

“Atalji wanted democracy to be supreme. He built the Jana Sangh. But, when the time came to rescue our democracy he and others went to Janata Party. Likewise, when the choice was between remaining in power or comprising on ideology, he left Janata Party and formed the BJP.”

Further PM Modi said,

“For some people, power is oxygen… they can’t live without it. A long part of Atalji’s career was spent in the Opposition benches but he spoke about national interest and never compromised on the ideology of the party.”

On the front face of the coin, there is national emblem along with its value—Rs 100 which is inscribed below the emblem. Also, the words ‘Satyamev Jayate’ are inscribed below the Lion Capital of Ashoka Pillar in Devanagari script.

All CM’s Of BJP-Led States Gathers With PM Modi For A Strategy Meeting

All CMs Of BJP-Led States Gather With PM Modi For A Strategy Meeting

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP President Amit Shah, and all CMs of BJP-led states gather at the BJP headquarter for a strategy meeting in New Delhi. The meeting was focused on the strategy for the upcoming 2019 elections and the assembly elections in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan which are to be conducted later this year.

The party indicated on Tuesday that the main agenda for 2019 polls would be the developmental work and identity politics. While briefing the media persons, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh said that the party member renewed their commitment towards bringing back PM Modi with a stronger majority, during the meeting.

Party President Amit Shah listed center’s initiatives. It also included National Register Of Citizens(NRC) in Assam and Citizenship (Amendment) Bill which were tabled in Lok Sabha in 2016. Both are controversial enough to create a hype in identity politics.

The amendments to the Citizenship Act, 1955, seek to allow citizenship status to some “persecuted minorities” — Hindus, Christians, Parsis, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains — from the neighboring countries of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan after six years of residency.

“The BJP’s stance on NRC is clear — there is no place for foreign infiltrators in this country,” said Singh, as per Shah’s speech. He added that India should accept Hindus who flee countries like Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

Moreover, the CMs of the party-ruled states discussed the flagship programmes of the government with all the details about their implementation in the states.

Both the party president Amit Shah and PM Modi encouraged all the Chief Ministers to campaign on the NDA government’s legislative achievements — passage of the Bill, seeking constitutional status for the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC), amendments to the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

“The constitutional status for the backward classes commission was a long-pending demand. Despite its majority in the past Lok Sabhas, Congress could not get it done for generations,” said Singh.

 

BJP All Set to Turn The Heat on BJD in Odisha by Rallying on 26th May?

BJP All Set to Turn The Heat on BJD in Odisha by Rallying on 26th May?

While getting out of Karnataka, BJP has now turned its focus to Odisha. And the latest reports suggest that PM Narendra Modi is all set to address a rally in Cuttack on 26th May to mark it as the 4th anniversary of Modi government.

BJP All Set to Turn The Heat on BJD in Odisha by Rallying on 26th May?

The announcement came when BS Yeddyurappa resigned as CM after failing to prove his majority in the state. The president Amit Shah’s comment that the ‘golden period would not come for the party till it won in the states like Odisha, Kerala, and WB, this announcement is the proof of the importance of Odisha in party’s scheme of things for the 2019 elections.

No doubt, the state is utmost important for BJP for two reasons, initially the party has been in the power, though only in alliance with BJD (Biju Janata Dal)for 9 years and it is seen as one of the states where it can gain few Lok Sabha seats to offset the losses that can be expected to suffer in UP, Gujarat, MP and Chhattisgarh. Another reason the party is banking on an undercurrent of anti-incumbency against Naveen Patnaik government that has controlled the state continuously for 18 years.

PM’s rally is important because it strengthens the BJP’s scarcely efforts to turn back to the glorious past of state, a trick that had paid rich dividends in Assam polls last year. What would be Mr. Modi’s visit after coming to power, the PM would list all the achievements of the government in last 4 years and would ask for the final assessment from the Naveen government for 18 years in power.

Well, it is clear that BJP is in no mood to walk over to the BJD in the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.
