| Published on:

Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed public meetings in Hajipur, Muzaffarpur and Saran, Bihar on Monday. He criticized the politics of appeasement and corruption associated with the RJD and Congress and highlighted the achievements of the BJP government over the past 10 years. During the event, LJP(R) President and NDA candidate from Hajipur, Shri Chirag Paswan, Muzaffarpur Lok Sabha Candidate Shri Raj Bhushan Chaudhary Nishad, Vaishali Lok Sabha candidate Smt. Veena Devi and Saran Lok Sabha Candidate Shri Rajiv Pratap Rudy, among other leaders were present. Before this, Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi sought blessings at the Shri Patna Sahib Gurudwara. Additionally, he actively participated in the preparation and serving of Langar, while also engaging in interactions with the devotees.

Prime Minister Shri Modi paid respects to the revered land of Hajipur, known for imparting lessons and teachings to the entire world. He urged all voters to participate in the fourth phase of elections and emphasized the significance of voting in democracy, stating that each vote is precious. Considering it a great privilege to seek blessings from the people of Hajipur. This Lok Sabha election is the first one being contested without the presence of Shri Ram Vilas Paswan. His dedication to social justice and his commitment to Hajipur will always be remembered. The resolve to fulfill his dreams for Hajipur remains strong. Prime Minister urged everyone to focus on June 4th, when the nation’s attention will be on the radio, television, and social media. Emphasizing on the importance of voting for the NDA and BJP for a strong government under Modi’s leadership. He cautioned against wasting votes on the RJD, Congress, and the INDI Alliance, asserting that such votes would be futile. Urging the public to vote for the sake of the country’s future and the future of their children.

Respected Shri Modi emphasized that this election is about choosing the leadership of the country and the nation does not want a weak, cowardly, and unstable government like the Congress. The public does not want lax police officers or teachers, they want both strong police officers and teachers, and the Prime Minister must also be strong because a cowardly Prime Minister cannot lead the nation. The opposition is so fearful that even in their dreams, they see Pakistan’s nuclear bombs. Such a party and its leaders, who are haunted by such dreams even in their sleep, cannot be entrusted with governing the country. The opposition claims that “Pakistan ne Chudiya Nahi Pehen Rakhi hai.” Whether such selfish individuals, who seemingly prioritize personal gains over national interests, can make decisions for national security. Shri Modi expressed his commitment to developing the eastern states of India as the growth engines of ‘Viksit Bharat’, hence his focus on the mantra ‘Viksit Bihar, Viksit Bharat’.

Shri Modi ji expressed deep respect for the strength and wisdom of the people of Bihar. However, he lamented the darkness spread by “Lalten” who misuse the name of social justice for personal gain. The opposition plunged Bihar into poverty and despair, creating a “Jungle Raj” while enriching themselves. Shri Modi questioned whether such individuals could truly serve Bihar’s interests. Criticizing the lack of vision and determination in the RJD and Congress, accusing them of focusing solely on personal gains at the expense of Bihar’s development.

Hon’ble Shri Modi highlighted the destructive nature of corruption and nepotism, citing the proverb “Na Neeman Geetiya Gayib, Na Madwa Mein Jaib” to emphasize the negligence and self-serving actions of the RJD and Congress. Underscoring the importance of protecting Bihar from such individuals who have squandered precious decades with their irresponsible governance. Shri Modi underscored the NDA’s commitment to farmers’ welfare. Lakhs of farmers in Bihar have received ₹22,000 crore through the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi, providing significant benefits to those cultivating crops such as litchi, mango and others. It is the NDA government that has granted the GI tag to Muzaffarpur’s litchi.

Prime Minister Shri Modi condemned the RJD and Congress for using appeasement as a political tool, particularly in their stance on the Ram Mandir issue. The public will not forgive those who seek to incite communal tensions for their own gain. The primary concern of the RJD and Congress is not the welfare of the people but rather securing their own vote bank. Shri Modi emphasized that the INDI Alliance attempts to divide the nation by instigating social conflicts for political gains. Shri Modi cited an example of the Karnataka Congress government hastily granting OBC status to Muslim communities, which resulted in existing OBCs losing out on their reservations. The people of Bihar that they would not allow such injustices to occur in their state.

Shri Narendra Modi highlighted that for the RJD and Congress, their top priority is not the welfare of the public but rather securing their own vote banks. Individuals in Bihar who have been convicted in the fodder scam and other criminal activities, yet advocate for Muslim reservation at the expense of Dalits, backward classes, and tribal communities. The rights granted to marginalized communities by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar in the Constitution are exploited in the name of religion, it could lead to the destruction of generations belonging to these communities.

Respected Shri Modi, drawing from his understanding of marginalized communities, emphasized the growing restlessness among the extremely backward classes due to the fear that their future prospects are diminishing. Shri Modi criticized the opposition for disregarding Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s principles and the Constitution. Modi Ki Guarantee is that as long as he is alive, the opposition will not be able to trample upon the rights of the public or revoke their reservations. The time has passed for the opposition to tear up documents granting reservations to women, and any attempt to do so in the future will have serious consequences. Shri Modi urged the opposition to understand that the era where they could disregard the rights of the public has ended.

Hon’ble Shri Modi mentioned that the BJP and NDA serve as protectors of social justice. The current majority of MPs and MLAs from SC, ST and OBC backgrounds belong to the NDA. 60% of ministers in the central cabinet are from these communities. When the NDA government took office in 2014, Shri Rajnath Kovind, belonging to Dalit community. And today, a daughter of the tribal community, Smt Droupadi Murmu is providing guidance to the nation. This illustrates the principle of participation and the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’‘.

Shri Modi ji stated that Congress and RJD, together, have ruined many generations and their dreams in Bihar. A case that had been pending for 40 years, where the RJD had snatched and torn the documents related to granting reservation to women in parliament and assembly. Due to the regressive mindset of RJD and Congress, women were deprived of those rights. With the formation of the new government, the work of reservation for women has been completed. The RJD opposes it, if it returns to power, they will snatch it away again.

Respected Shri Modi highlighted the stark inflation crisis a decade ago when even an income of ₹20,000 per month warranted taxes under the Congress government. Contrastingly, today, with incomes up to ₹60,000, citizens won’t face additional taxation. Formerly, mobile phones were a luxury for the poor, whereas now, almost everyone owns a mobile phone. The kitchen was a challenge for impoverished families, particularly women, during the Congress era. However, free ration distribution has saved the poor over ₹10 lakh crore. The Ayushman Yojana has also relieved them of over ₹1.25 lakh crore in medical expenses. Additionally, it is Modi ki Guarantee that further savings for every household be made. Shri Modi pledged to cover medical expenses up to ₹5 lakh for members aged 70 and above, in every family.

Prime Minister Shri Modi highlighted that during the Congress regime, a single LED bulb cost around ₹400. Under Modi’s administration, the price was drastically reduced to ₹40-50, making affordable LED bulbs accessible to every household. This initiative has saved the poor and middle-class families approximately ₹20,000 crore in electricity bills. Additionally, to further benefit the citizens, a new scheme has been introduced wherein electricity bills will be reduced to zero. Moreover, individuals will have the opportunity to generate electricity in their homes. The PM Surya Ghar Muft Bijli Yojana has already commenced registration as the government has launched it. Under this scheme, households will receive a subsidy of ₹75,000 from the government to install solar panels on their rooftops. The public can utilize required electricity and can also sell it to the government, which will be double beneficial for them as their electricity bill will be reduced to zero and they will also be able to gain after selling the electricity to the government.

Shri Modi ji emphasized that Congress should give in writing that they will not provide reservation to SC, ST and OBC categories and will not distribute reservation in the name of religion. Congress and their allies have been silent for three weeks. Leaders of the RJD also refuse to overlook the promises and intentions of the Congress. While the Modi government has implemented 10% reservation for the general category without any unrest in the country, the Congress aims to stoke tensions by offering reservations to its vote bank. The Congress party is devising plans to scrutinize and seize public property, intending to distribute it among its vote bank. Congress leaders assert that Muslims hold the primary claim to the country’s resources. Congress is contemplating imposing an inheritance tax, aiming to confiscate over half of people’s property, but Modi won’t allow this to happen.

Hon’ble Shri Modi highlighted that during RJD’s governance, Bihar witnessed a rise in criminal activities like kidnapping and extortion. Hajipur has witnessed the collapse of all industries and businesses under this regime. RJD and Congress have only brought about migration and devastation in Bihar. Shri Modi embarked upon his commitment towards ‘Viksit Bihar, Viksit Bharat’. The NDA’s track record aims at rooting out corruption. During the tenure of the Congress government at the center, the Enforcement Directorate seized only ₹35 lakh, whereas under Modi’s leadership, they have seized ₹2200 crore in 10 years. This has led to a sense of unease among corrupt individuals, who are now resorting to criticizing him.

Shri Modi ji emphasized that there is simply no comparison between the development initiatives of the BJP and the RJD-Congress. While the Congress was busy with corruption scandals, it neglected the concerns of the poor. Leaders from the RJD and Congress have plundered the people, exchanging jobs for land. The vast assets they accumulated across Delhi and the nation have now been confiscated by agencies. Those who unlawfully seized land from the underprivileged will face consequences they cannot evade. The leaders of the INDI alliance have devised a new formula: to change prime ministers every year, resulting in 5 different prime ministers in 5 years. Yet, this formula isn’t conducive to the nation’s development. Both the RJD and Congress are fixated on appeasement to safeguard their identities. Congress has stated explicitly that they won’t grant reservation to SC, ST and OBC communities and they won’t divide reservation along religious lines. Congress and their allies have remained silent for three weeks.

Prime Minister Shri Modi highlighted that during his tenure, India’s economy has surged ahead, creating ample job opportunities as it progresses. Over the past decade, Bihar has witnessed the laying of 1400 km of new rail lines and the construction of more than 400 railway flyovers and underpasses. Such extensive infrastructure development wouldn’t have taken place without generating employment. Bihar has seen the construction of over 3300 national highways in the last ten years. Continuous efforts of establishment of fertilizer factories, thermal power plants, construction of bridges over the Ganga, ongoing metro projects in Patna, setting up a natural gas network and the distribution of LPG through the Ujjwala Yojana to every village, all ensure job opportunities. However, those who solely rely on inherited wealth fail to comprehend the essence of employment.

Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi outlined various developmental initiatives, including modern connectivity, creating new opportunities for youth, improving the quality of life and enhancing law and order in Bihar. The detrimental effects of previous governments nurturing and exploiting Naxalism for their political agenda, which devastated industries and commerce in Bihar. The NDA government is restoring law and order and reducing the incidence of Naxalism, leading to increased investment and job opportunities.

Respected Shri Modi announced plans to modernize more than 90 railway stations in Bihar. Over the past decade, his administration has provided homes to the poor by constructing 4 crore pucca houses nationwide, including 40 lakh in Bihar alone. The materials used for these houses, such as cement, iron rods and bricks, have been sourced from local stores, benefiting the youth of Bihar. The true inheritors of Modi’s legacy are the people themselves. The people must entrust everything, a life of integrity, prosperity for their children’s bright future. Modi will hand over ‘Viksit Bharat’ in the hands of the people. Consequently, every effort is being made to ensure that the dreams of the youth can be realized. Bihar has benefited from the welfare schemes of the BJP government. In the Modi government’s third term, 3 crore pucca houses will be built.

Shri Modi ji announced a significant initiative wherein the BJP intends to establish specialized storage clusters for fruits and vegetables in the coming five years. Additionally, the party plans to expedite work on food processing during this period. BJP government’s priority also includes addressing the concerns of the fishing community, who have received assistance worth thousands of crores through the Matasya Sampada Yojana. For the first time in the country’s history, fishermen have been included in the Kisan Credit Card scheme, and a separate ministry dedicated to fishermen has been established, along with a separate budget and schemes, solely for their benefit. In Bihar, all ongoing projects related to railways, roads and airports are progressing rapidly, paving the way for swift development.

Respected Shri Modi emphasized that addressing the aspirations of Bihar’s youth remains a top priority for the NDA. Under Shri Nitish Kumar’s leadership, the Bihar government has granted thousands of government jobs. Additionally, the central government has organized the Rozgar Mela, resulting in the recruitment of thousands. Previously, the paperwork for job recruitment took up to 2 years, but now, it’s streamlined to just 1 year, facilitating the hiring of 10 lakh people within a year. Bihar has also received approval for 8 new medical colleges, with over 10,000 Ayushman Aarogya Centers and more than 400 Jan Aushadhi Centers established. Furthermore, more than 60,000 Common Service Centers have been established in villages across the state. These initiatives would not have been possible without generating employment opportunities.

Hon’ble Prime Minister highlighted that today, the world acknowledges both the strength and prowess of India. India proudly raised the tricolor flag on the lunar surface at the Shiv Shakti Point. “Desh Ki Janta Ka Sapna Hi Modi Ka Sankalp Hai””. Modi is committed 24/7 for 2047. In a mere decade, Modi’s administration has achieved more development than the Congress did in 60 years of governance. Notably, the number of AIIMS establishments has doubled in the past decade compared to the previous 60 years. Additionally, the Modi government has doubled the count of medical colleges nationwide and inaugurated a 500-bed medical college in Saran.

Respected Shri Modi emphasized that under the Mudra Yojana, Bihar has received assistance worth ₹2.5 lakh crores, all guaranteed by Modi himself, to empower the youth. There’s significant potential for tourism-based employment across Bihar, including in Vaishali. Work is ongoing in Bihar under the Buddh Sarkar Yojana, promising new job opportunities in the area.

Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Modi stated that to achieve ‘Viksit Bihar, Viksit Bharat’, voters must turn out in large numbers on May 20th, aiming to surpass previous turnout records.  NDA’s aim is to ensure Bihar’s rapid progress on the path of development. To achieve this, Muzaffarpur Lok Sabha Candidate Shri Raj Bhushan Chaudhary Nishad and  Vaishali Lok Sabha candidates Smt. Veena Devi and Saran Lok Sabha Candidate Shri Rajiv Pratap Rudy are to be elected with overwhelming votes, as the votes for them will directly contribute to the success of Shri Modi’s vision. Shri Chirag Paswan should receive more record votes than Shri Ram Vilas Paswan, this will be a tribute to him. Shri Modi emphasized that his purpose isn’t just to secure Shri Chirag’s victory but also to repay the debt owed to Shri Ram Vilas. Shri Chirag Paswan truly represents Bihar and his votes will directly contribute to Shri Narendra Modi’s account.
