BJP considers the entire country as a family: PM Modi

| Published on:

Launching the BJP-led NDA’s campaign in Rajasthan’s Kotputli for the Lok Sabha polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reminisced about how he highlighted the magnificence of Jaipur a few days ago during the visit of the President of France. The PM said, “The first electoral rally of my Rajasthan campaign began in Dhundhar in 2019. Now, in 2024, the electoral campaign begins again from the same region. You have also made your decision – ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar’.”

Citing the division in the country’s politics once again, PM Modi said, “On one side, there’s the BJP, committed to the nation’s first principles. On the other side, there’s the Congress, bent on plundering the country. The BJP views the nation as its family, while the Congress prioritizes its own family over the nation. The BJP works to enhance India’s pride in the world, whereas the Congress tends to insult India abroad.”

“Rajasthan has always stood firm against such anti-national dynastic forces. Rajasthan gave all 25 seats to the BJP in 2014. Rajasthan also gave all 25 seats to the NDA in 2019. And now, in 2024, Rajasthan is once again going to give all 25 seats,” he added.

Addressing the massive rally, PM Modi remarked, “In 2024, this Lok Sabha election is no ordinary election. This election aims to make India the world’s third-largest economy. It’s an election to uproot corruption from its core. It’s an election to fulfill the dream of self-reliant India. It’s an election committed to the prosperity of farmers. This is the first election where dynastic parties are rallying to save their families. This is the first election where all corrupt individuals are rallying together to halt action against corruption. I say – eradicate corruption, they say – save the corrupt.”

Hitting out at the opposition, PM Modi asserted, “I question dynastic parties and their corruption, that’s why I’m their target. They hurl abuses at me and say Modi doesn’t have any family. For me, you are my family – ‘Mera Bharat, Mera Parivar’. Your dream is my determination.”

PM Modi underscored his government’s proactive approach, contrasting it with the neglect of previous governments. He pointed out the neglect of small farmers and shramiks by the Congress, contrasting it with his initiatives like the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme and pension schemes. PM Modi also highlighted the BJP government’s provision of free ration to 80 crore needy individuals in the country.

Boasting about the ‘Made In India’ initiative, PM Modi stated, “During the Congress era, India was known as one of the largest importers of weapons in the world. Today, under the BJP government, India is being recognized as a country that exports arms. Just recently, India set a new record in defence exports. For the first time since independence, India has exported defence equipment worth Rs 21,000 crore. India now sells “Made in India” weapons to more than 80 countries. Therefore, I’ll say it – ‘Neeyat Sahi, Toh Nateeje Sahi’.”

In a practical state of mind, PM Modi pointed out that, “Amidst India’s success, I never asserted we achieved everything in 10 years. However, we have indeed achieved what wasn’t done in the last 5-6 decades post-independence. We have worked at the necessary pace.”

Recalling about several milestones from the past years, PM Modi mentioned “By 2014, only 20,000 kilometres of railway lines were electrified. In 10 years, we’ve doubled it. While Congress talked about poverty, the BJP lifted 25 crore people out of it. Modi fulfilled long-awaited decisions: abolishing Article 370, building a grand Ram temple, enacting laws against triple talaq, and implementing One Rank, One Pension,” and reiterated that “Modi has completed the decisions which were awaited for decades.”

PM Modi remarked that whatever happened in 10 years is just a trailer and positively affirmed, “The upcoming third term of the BJP government promises historic and decisive decisions to propel the country forward. Much remains to be accomplished.”

Taking a sharp jibe at the opposition and their tactics, PM Modi said, “When I push for a developed India and fight corruption, critics from the Congress and INDI Alliance lash out at Modi. Yet, the people of Rajasthan are aware that ‘Dal Baati Churma, Voter Mhara Surma’.”
