| Published on:

Hon’ble Bharatiya Janata Party National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda addressed public meetings in Ariyalur, Karur & Virudhunagar in Tamil Nadu on Sunday. At the event, Tamil Nadu BJP Vice President Shri K.S. Narendran, Ariyalur President Shri K. Ayyappan, BJP Chidambaram candidate Smt Karthiyayini, BJP Karur Candidate Shri VV Senthilnathan, BJP Virudhunagar Candidate Smt Raadhika Sarathkumar, Tamil Nadu election Co In-charge Shri Sudhakar Reddy, and other leaders were present. During the program, Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda highlighted that under the leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi ji, both India and Tamil Nadu have experienced significant development while also prioritizing the preservation of Tamil culture and traditions. In contrast, the INDI Alliance is marred by corruption and nepotism, with leaders facing legal troubles, being either in jail or out on bail.

Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda emphasized the enthusiasm among the public, suggesting that Smt. Karthiyayini and Shri VV Senthilnathan are on track to win the elections. He noted Tamil Nadu’s rich cultural heritage, upheld by figures like the Nayanmars, the Alvars, and the Siddhars, who have preserved ancient traditions and Sanatan Dharma. Shri Nadda criticized the DMK and Congress for allegedly opposing Tamil culture and traditions. Shri Nadda stated that when Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi ji established the Sengol in Parliament the Congress and DMK opposed it, which showcased their opposition to Tamil culture and traditions. The Bharatiya Janata Party always stands for Tamil Nadu literature, culture, language, traditions, and customs. The upcoming elections are a battle between the BJP, aiming to revive Tamil culture, and the DMK and Congress, allegedly seeking to destroy Tamil culture.

BJP National President Shri Nadda highlighted India’s significant progress under PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s leadership. He noted that India, which was the 11th economic power in 2019, has now become the 5th largest economy globally, surpassing Britain, and is on track to become the 3rd largest. Shri Nadda mentioned the remarkable growth in electronic production, with India’s exports increasing sixfold. He pointed out that while in 2014, most mobile phones were imported from China, now 97% are manufactured in India. Under the dynamic leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji, India has also become the third-largest automobile sector, surpassing Japan. Additionally, India has emerged as the most effective and affordable medicine producer globally, with a 138% increase in medicine exports. Shri Nadda expressed confidence that India’s continued progress under PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s leadership will benefit Tamil Nadu significantly.

Shri JP Nadda emphasized that to fortify India’s strength, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji has placed significant focus on uplifting marginalized sections of society. Shri Narendra has prioritized the empowerment of women, the aspirations of the youth, and the welfare of farmers. The Prime Minister’s attention to the needs of Dalits, tribals, and those who have been historically neglected has contributed to India’s enhanced resilience. Shri Nadda highlighted the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojna, which ensures that 80 crore people of the country and 3 crore 60 lakh people in Tamil Nadu receive either 5 kilograms of rice or wheat and 1 kilogram of pulses every month. The scheme has reportedly lifted 25 crore people out of poverty in India. Shri Nadda highlighted that as a result of these initiatives, extreme poverty in India has plummeted to less than 1%, marking a significant milestone in the nation’s journey towards becoming a developing economy. Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda stressed the importance of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi in supporting farmers, with 11 crore 78 lakh farmers receiving 2000 rupees every fourth month. In Tamil Nadu alone, 38 lakh farmers are benefiting from this scheme, receiving 2000 rupees directly into their accounts every fourth month. Shri Nadda also highlighted the impact in Chidambaram, Karur and Virudhunagar where 2 lakh 50 thousand farmers from each constituency are experiencing the positive effects of this program.

BJP National President Shri JP Nadda emphasized the empowerment of women through the provision of 10 crore gas connections under the Ujjwala Yojana, with 40 lakh allocated to Tamil Nadu. Additionally, 2 lakh 50 thousand beneficiaries are specifically benefiting in Chidambaram, Virudhunagar and 2 lakh beneficiaries in Karur. Under the Jal Jeevan Mission, 11.4 crore people nationwide have been provided with tap connections in their homes, with 80 lakh individuals benefiting in Tamil Nadu and 4 lakh people specifically in Chidambaram. Under the Ayushman Bharat Yojana, a total of 55 crore poor individuals, which amounts to 40 percent of the Indian population, are receiving health coverage of up to 5 lakh rupees per year.

BJP National President stressed the special significance Tamil Nadu holds for PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji, pointing out that under his leadership, tax devolution in the state has increased threefold. Additionally, grants-in-aid have surged by four times. Notably, for the National Health Mission, 1650 crore rupees have been allocated to bolster health infrastructure in the region. The budget for health infrastructure has been doubled, and Tamil Nadu has inaugurated 11 new medical colleges. Shri Nadda highlighted that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji has allocated 613 crore rupees for the PM Gram Sadak Yojana, aiming at the development of rural roads. Additionally, a fund of 872 crores has been earmarked for drinking water supply projects. Rural development initiatives have received a substantial boost with an allocation of 10,346 crores. Moreover, the railway budget for Tamil Nadu has witnessed a remarkable increase, soaring seven times higher than previous allocations. Under the Bharat Mala project, construction of 1478 km of roads is underway. A defense corridor is being established linking Chennai, Coimbatore, Hosur, Salem, and Tiruchirappalli, with approximately 12,000 crore rupees worth of Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) signed. Eleven cities in Tamil Nadu have been designated as smart cities. Additionally, development is underway for the Chennai-Bengaluru industrial corridor.

Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda emphasized the distinct contrast between PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s commitment to India’s and Tamil Nadu’s development and the intentions of the INDI Alliance, which seems geared towards protecting their own families and shielding corrupt leaders. Shri Nadda pointed out that while PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji strives to eradicate corruption, the INDI Alliance appears to shield corrupt leaders. Shri Nadda coined “DMK” as representing “Dynasty, Money Swindling, and Katta Panchayat,” suggesting a culture of dynastic politics and corruption within the alliance. This encompasses the families of Farooq Abdullah, Late Mufti Sayeed, Sukhbir Badal, Chautala, Akhilesh Yadav, Lalu Yadav, Mamata Banerjee, K Chandrashekhar, MK Stalin, Sharad Pawar, Uddhav Thackeray, and the Gandhi family. On one hand, PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji emphasizes eradicating corruption and holding corrupt leaders accountable, while on the other hand, the INDI alliance is making efforts to shield corrupt individuals and corruption.

Bharatiya Janata Party National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda highlighted the involvement of various leaders from the INDI Alliance in corruption scandals. Farooq Abdullah is implicated in cricket fraud, Akhilesh Yadav in Gomti front, laptop distribution, and foodgrain scam, Lalu Yadav in fodder scam and Land-for-job scam, and TMC ministers are in jail for different cases. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, AAP leader Manish Sisodia, and BRS leader K Kavitha are in jail for their involvement in a liquor scam. Udaynidhi Stalin and the Stalin family are embroiled in a DA case. Leaders from the INC like Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, P Chidambaram, Karti Chidambaram, and AAP leader Sanjay Singh are out on bail. Shri Nadda suggested that practically, the leaders of the INDI Alliance are either in jail or on bail. Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda emphasized that the corrupt governance of the Stalin family is putting the development of Tamil Nadu at stake. While concluding his remarks, Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda emphasized that to end corruption and foster development in the state, the public must vote for Smt. Karthiyayini, Shri VV Senthilnathan, Smt Raadhika Sarathkumar and ensured the BJP government at the Centre.
