‘Maha Jansampark Abhiyan’
As a part of the commemoration of the completion of 9 years of the Modi government at the Centre, BJP has organised a series of public meetings and rallies under the ‘Maha Jansampark Abhiyan’ across the country. The purpose of these gatherings, which took place between May 30 and June 30, 2023 was to provide information about the achievements of the Modi government as well as its welfare schemes and development initiatives. During this period, the BJP has planned approximately 50 rallies throughout the country. PM Shri Narendra Modi, BJP National President Shri JP Nadda and other senior leaders addressed several rallies across the country.
Bharatiya Janata Party National President Shri JP Nadda, addressing a massive rally at Jhanda ground in Giridih, Jharkhand on 22 June, 2023 said many countries are passing through a recession but India continues to have the strongest economy under the dynamic leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi. “Today there is an economic slowdown in America, Europe, and Australia and due to the war in Ukraine there are issues in the economy, but India’s economy is standing strong”, he said. Shri Nadda addressed the rally as part of the party’s mass outreach programme on the completion of nine years of Modi government at the Centre.
During his address, Shri Nadda made a scathing attack on the Congress party saying when global leaders and CEOs were lauding Shri Modi for his outlook and performance, it was saddening to note that the party compared him with a snake, a scorpion, illiterate and a tea-seller.
He said the country under PM Shri Modi has witnessed development on all fronts during the past nine years and occupies the centre stage on the global platform.
Shri Nadda said Rs 18 lakh crore has been spent on augmenting infrastructure in the past nine years and 40 km of national highways are being constructed daily compared to just 12 km during UPA rule.
He said India became the fifth largest economy, fourth leading steel producer and third-biggest automobile maker under the Modi government.

The BJP National President said Odisha remained backwards under the BJD rule, he asserted that the state’s per capita income is lowest, its average monthly income for agricultural households is lowest while incidents of crime against women are increasing. “It is time for the lotus to bloom in Odisha,” Shri Nadda said.

No democracy in Tamil Nadu: Rajnath Singh
Defence Minister Shri Rajnath Singh on 20 June, 2023 slammed Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin for describing the arrest of former state electricity minister V Senthil Balaji as ‘political vendetta’. “Stalin is defending Senthil Balaji, who was arrested in a corruption case.
He (Stalin) was the same person who called Senthil Balaji corrupt when he was in the opposition and now when an investigation agency arrests him, Stalin calls it political vendetta. This duplicity of character is unacceptable,” said Shri Rajnath Singh, participating in a public meeting in Tambaram in Chennai to speak about the 9-years achievements’ of the Narendra Modi government at the centre.
Referring to the arrest of BJP state secretary SG Suryah “because of a tweet” shows Stalin’s “complete disregard for democracy and dissent”, said Shri Singh.
He said Stalin was ruling like a “dictator” and there is no democracy in the state. “Stalin, my good friend, who was named after Russian dictator Stalin, behaves like a dictator himself. There is no democracy in the state,” Shri Rajnath Singh said.
Shri Singh said the alliance with AIADMK has been intact for several years. It is alliance dharma to respect our alliance partners, he said. “We have respect for Jayalalithaa who supported the first BJP’s government headed by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and we are grateful for her,” he said.
Shri Singh said, “The significance of ‘Sengol’ was largely confined to Tamil Nadu and it was PM Shri Narendra Modi who by installing ‘Sengol’ in the new Parliament building made it popular and took it outside Tamil Nadu.
Earlier, BJP State President Shri Annamalai presented a silver sceptre to the Defence Minister.
Kullu (Himachal Pradesh)
‘West Bengal, Bihar, Rajasthan and Punjab denying full quota rights to OBCs’
For Congress and other parties, which have been captured by families, the motive has always been to grab power by dividing people and making false promises, said BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda while addressing a massive rally in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh on 14 June, 2023.
Launching a blistering attack on the opposition parties, Shri JP Nadda said the Congress and other parties had always played vote bank politics and didn’t hesitate in compromising the interest of the nation for power.
The BJP National President said a recent report by the National Commission of Backward Classes (NCBC) was a glaring example of vote bank politics of these parties. He said according to the report, OBC people were being denied full quota rights in West Bengal, Bihar, Rajasthan and Punjab.
In West Bengal, 91.5% OBC quota is going to Muslims. The benefit of OBC quota has been given to Bangladeshi infiltrators and Rohingyas. In seven tribal districts of Rajasthan, no OBC quota had been given at all; in Bihar, only the creamy layer was getting reservation certificates, while in Punjab, only 12% OBC reservation was being given against provision of 25%.
He said PM Shri Narendra Modi had not only transformed India but also changed the country’s political culture from nepotism to development and vote bank politics to report card politics.
Punjab’s law & order is going from
bad to worse: Amit Shah
As part of the BJP’s outreach campaign to mark the completion of nine years of the Narendra Modi government at the centre, Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah addressed a massive rally in Gurdaspur, Punjab on 18 June, 2023. On the occasion Shri Shah said, “In my entire life, I have not seen a government like the one led by AAP in Punjab, which makes hollow promises.” Attacking CM Bhagwant Mann, he said, “The chief minister has only one job. If Kejriwal has to go to Chennai, then he goes to Delhi in the aircraft to take him to Chennai.” His entire time is consumed by Kejriwal’s tours and as a result of this, Punjab’s law and order is going from bad to worse,” he said.
While the drug trade is increasing, the Chief Minister has no time to address it or farmers’ issues, Shri Shah said, adding people are not safe under AAP in Punjab. On the drug issue, he said the Narendra Modi government has decided to free the country from the menace and very soon the drug trade in Punjab will be shut. Within a month an office of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) will be opened in Amritsar, he said.
The Union Home Minister said very soon BJP workers in Punjab will go to every village in Punjab to spread awareness about drug abuse.
Criticising the AAP over its poll promises, Shri Shah said, “I have come here to ask Bhagwant Mann and Kejriwal that you had promised Rs 1,000 to every woman in the state, but they are still waiting for that. What to talk of Rs 1,000, not even 1,000 paisa have been transferred into their accounts.”
He listed various achievements of the Modi government at the Centre in 9 years and said India is now known as a growth engine around the world. He also talked about initiatives such as Kartapur Sahib corridor, observing December 26 each year as ‘Vir Bal Divas’, renovated Jallianwala Bagh memorial, Delhi-Amritsar-Katra highway, and two Vande Bharat trains for Punjab.

‘Jagan government has done nothing in Andhra Pradesh’
Addressing a massive public rally on the completion of 9 years of Shri Narendra Modi Govt at the centre in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh on 11 June, 2023 Union Home & Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah said the people of the country have once again decided to make Shri Narendra Modi the Prime Minister for the third consecutive time in 2024. I have come here to humbly request the people of Andhra Pradesh to give the Bharatiya Janata Party more than 20 Lok Sabha seats and be the partner in the growth, development and progress of the country which is being steered by Shri Narendra Modi.
–The Jagan Mohan Reddy government in Andhra Pradesh has done nothing for the state and its people, what it has done is corruption, scams and misgovernance.
–During the rule of Jagan Mohan Reddy Vizag has become the hotbed of anti-social elements. Land scam, mining scam, fake medicine racket, all this is going on in the state under the patronage of the ruling party.
–Jagan Mohan Reddy government has given Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojna a new name called Raytu Bharosa Scheme and is calling it a scheme of his government.
