Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting in Daltonganj, Jharkhand on 25 November, 2019. Calling for a stable government in the state, PM Shri Modi said, “Under the leadership of BJP, it is very important for Jharkhand that a strong and stable government is formed here.”
At the public meeting, the PM said, “Jharkhand, especially Palamu, has always been a strong fortress for BJP. If lotus is blooming across the country today, it’s due to the blessings of the people here & the party workers. The people here have always stood by ‘kamal’.”
Speaking on Naxalism, PM Shri Modi said that BJP had made an effort to free Jharkhand off naxals and created a peaceful environment in Jharkhand. He said, “Naxalism was an issue due to political instability here. Governments used to get toppled here, they didn’t want to serve people but simply enjoy the power… How could there have been proper roads, industries & electricity, given the situation which was here.”
The PM also highlighted the NDA Government’s initiatives like the Ayushman Bharat, Saubhagya Yojana aimed at transforming lives of people in Jharkhand. PM said, “Due to the sincere efforts of the BJP government, roads are reaching every village of Jharkhand today. Electricity is reaching every village.”
Stepping up his attack on the Congress and its allies, he slammed the statements made by Congress leaders against the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35-A in Jammu and Kashmir. He said that the BJP had promised a solution for Article 370 and the party had fulfilled its promise.
In a strong attack against Congress, he asserted that the matter of dispute over the birthplace of Lord Ram was stalled by Congress. “Had they wanted, a solution could have been found much earlier. But they did not do that, they cared about their vote bank. Such thinking of Congress affected the country,” he said.
Among others Jharkhand CM Shri Raghubar Das, BJP National Vice President and Jharkhand In-Charge Shri Om Prakash Mathur, other senior leaders of BJP and Union Ministers were present on this occasion.
