Pm Modi’s Message To Naxalites Development Is The Only Answer To Violence

PM Modi’s Message To Naxalites: Development Is The Only Answer To Violence

“Development is the only answer to violence”, said PM Narendra Modi on 14 June 2018 while addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh. As a strong message to the naxals who have been involved in violent campaigning, PM Modi made significance as the state has been reeling under maoist insurgency from several decades.

Launching the projects worth Rs. 22,000 crore, he said that the government is consistently working on creating an “atmosphere of trust” in the state where the government has ensured that the large part earned from the natural resources would be spent on the welfare of locals.

Accordingly, the additional funds of Rs. 3000 crore which the state has received would be spent on hospitals, schools, roads and toilets, he said.

While addressing the public, he listed various initiatives undertaken by the BJP-led central and state governments.

I think development is the only answer to violence and conspiracy of any sort. The trust emanating from development ends violence of any sort,” he told to the crowd.

Government is also working on increasing the income of tribals and other living in the backward areas, he added.

Amidst all this, he launched an air service between Jagdalpur and Raipur, one of the various projects that were launched today. He also stated about the government’s initiatives and schemes such as “Udaan” which has greatly facilitated the state-run Raipur airport which can handle 50 flights each day. It used to handle only six flights prior to the application of the scheme in the reign of UPA government.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Analyses PM Modi’s Security As Police Claimed Assassination Plot

Delhi: It seems like the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is really concerned about the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Analyses PM Modi Security As Police Claimed Assassination Plot

Singh held a meeting with senior officials to review the security of PM Modi, as Pune police claimed about a Maoist Plot to kill Prime Minister Modi. This plot is similar to the murder of the Prime Minister in a “Rajiv Gandhi-type incident” during one of his roadshows.

The home ministry got the reports related to this matter from the Maharashtra police. Yesterday, the meeting was arranged. And along with the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, it was attended by the National Security Advisor ‘Ajit Doval’, the Director of the Intelligence Bureau ‘Rajiv Jain’ and the home secretary among others, the sources said.

According to the home ministry, the home minister has controlled all the essential measures and discussed with other agencies to suitably strengthen the security arrangements for the Prime Minister.

According to the police, the evidence of threats against PM was found in a laptop that belongs to Rona Wilson, one of the five people arrested recently over January’s caste-related violence in Maharashtra’s Bhima-Koregaon.

The letter was all about planning to kill PM Modi, it addressed to one “Comrade Prakash” and was signed with the initial “R”. According to the police, the initial R means Rona Wilson.

It seems like the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is really concern about the security for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The letter was presented in court where a part of it was read out by the public prosecutor.

A few more people have been arrested. They include Dalit activist Sudhir Dhawale, lawyer Surendra Gadling and activists Mahesh Raut and Shoma Sen. According to police, they are the top brass of urban Maoists.

In this context, the veteran politician Sharad Pawar who is the chief of Nationalist Congress Party said that BJP was “playing the threat letter card” after realizing that they are losing popular support “to gain sympathy”. And for this statement, he got badly trolled by Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis.

Also, it seems like the Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam supported the statement of Sharad Pawar and said that this news could be planted.

He said,

“I am not saying that this is absolutely wrong but it is the oldest tactic of Modi since he was Chief Minister of Gujarat. He added whenever his fame declines, news of murder plot is planted. So, it should examine deeply.”
