Family-centric political parties are incapable of addressing the needs of the country’s youth: Amit Shah

| Published on:

Hon’ble Union Home Minister & Minister of Cooperation and Senior BJP leader Shri Amit Shah addressed public meetings in Prayagraj and Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh on Sunday. He strongly criticized the corrupt and dynastic politics of the Congress and SP, while emphasizing the Modi government’s focus on public welfare and developmental initiatives. During the event, senior BJP leader Shri CT Ravi, Uttar Pradesh Government Minister Shri Anil Rajbhar, Shri Nandagopal Nandi, incumbent Allahabad MP Smt Rita Bahuguna, Machhlishahr Lok Sabha candidate Shri BP Saroj and Allahabad Lok Sabha candidate Shri Neeraj Tripathi, among other leaders were present.

Union Home Minister stated that four phases of the election have been completed so far and in these phases, the INDI alliance has been thoroughly defeated. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi is on track to secure 400 seats with a decisive majority. Every vote cast for the lotus symbol will contribute in making Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji the Prime Minister for the third time. Electing Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji for a third term means elevating India to the world’s third-largest economy, establishing dairy facilities in 300,000 villages and ensuring the security of the nation.

Shri Shah highlighted that Mallikarjun Kharge asks what the people of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh have to do with Kashmir, showing he has never understood the country. Every child in Allahabad is ready to sacrifice for Kashmir. Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar says to respect Pakistan because it has an atomic bomb. Both Farooq Abdullah and Mani Shankar say that since Pakistan has an atomic bomb, India should give up PoK. But PoK has always belonged to India and it will be reclaimed. 

Union Home Minister emphasized that Congress kept Article 370 intact for 70 years, but when the people elected Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji as Prime Minister, he abrogated it on August 5, 2019. Rahul Gandhi used to say that removing Article 370 would lead to rivers of blood in Kashmir, but now no one even has the courage to lift a stone.

Shri Shah stated that during Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh’s tenure, terrorist attacks plagued the nation daily, with little action taken. In contrast, within 10 days of the Uri and Pulwama attacks, Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji responded with surgical and air strikes, effectively combating terrorism. Prayagraj is the land of ‘Kumbh’, and Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji is working on several development projects, including constructing a Nishadraj Park, developing the Ashram of Bhardwaj Rishi, and creating a corridor at Lete Hanuman Mandir. People of Prayagraj must prepare themselves as the whole nation will visit for Kumbh in 2025.

Union Home Minister stated that the INDI Alliance has no clear candidate for Prime Minister. Leaders like Akhilesh Yadav, Tejashwi Yadav, Mamata Banerjee, and Sharad Pawar cannot effectively run the country. The INDI Alliance has proposed the idea of having five Prime Ministers over five years, which is unrealistic for a strong nation like India. India is a strong country, not a ration shop. The country needs a decisive Prime Minister who can firmly respond to Pakistan, and that leader is Shri Narendra Modi. The enthusiasm of the people indicates that Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji will become Prime Minister for a third time on June 4th.

Shri Shah criticized the INDI Alliance’s promise to reverse major BJP decisions if they come to power, including reinstating Article 370, repealing the CAA, providing reservation to a ‘special class,’ and dismantling nuclear weapons. He accused the INDI Alliance of prioritizing family politics, with leaders like Lalu Yadav, MK Stalin, and Uddhav Thackeray aiming to make their sons Chief Ministers, while Sonia Gandhi wants her son to be Prime Minister and Mamata Banerjee wants her nephew to become a Chief Minister. An alliance focused on family success cannot work for the benefit of Prayagraj or the country. Only Shri Narendra Modi can truly serve the nation’s interests.

Union Home Minister highlighted Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s achievement of elevating India’s economy from the 11th to the 5th position. He also mentioned the transformation in Kashmir, where previously hoisting the tricolor required army support, but now, processions of Lord Shri Krishna occur at Lal Chowk.

Shri Shah emphasized that despite Congress’s claims, the BJP has never abolished reservation, even when it secured a full majority in the last 10 years. However, Congress has tampered with reservation policies in Karnataka and Telangana, reducing benefits for Scheduled Castes, Tribes, and Other Backward Classes while favoring specific groups. Once Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi secures his third term, efforts will focus on restoring reservations for marginalized communities by revising policies that favor specific classes. Contrary to Congress’s track record, Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has honored Baba Saheb Ambedkar’s legacy by declaring April 14th as Rashtriya Samrasta Diwas and November 26th as Samvidhan Diwas. Memorials in Mau, London, Nagpur, and cities like Delhi and Mumbai commemorate significant events in Ambedkar’s life. The Congress party wants to divide the country once again. The Congress MP gave a statement that North and South India should be made separate countries. But the BJP will not allow India to be divided.

Union Home Minister praised the Allahabad MP Smt Rita Bahuguna Joshi for her contributions and development work in the constituency. Under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, significant projects have been completed, including the construction of a 600 km long Ganga Expressway connecting Meerut and Prayagraj, the expansion of the Andawa to Handia road, the construction of 12 railway overbridges, and a six-lane ropeway in Phaphamau. Additionally, an overbridge on the Ganga river, the inclusion of Prayagraj in the SMART cities initiative, and the opening of a law university in Prayagraj have been accomplished. In Prayagraj alone, PM Shri Narendra Modi has provided houses to 1 Lakh 55 thousand poor people in Prayagraj only, 5 Lakh 80 thousand people got LPG cylinder, 6 Lakh 50 thousand people got water connection, more than 8 Lakh toilets were constructed and 8 Lakh people get free 5 Kg food grains per month.

Shri Shah stated that the BJP government constructed 1300 kilometers of roads under the Gram Sadak Yojana, constructed the National Highway and Expressway from Jaunpur to Bhadohi at a cost of ₹1500 crore, constructed the Jaunpur-Sultanpur-Lucknow National Highway, from Jaunpur to Varanasi and Azamgarh. A 4-lane road was built, a medical college was constructed in Jaunpur and a sewer treatment plant was also constructed in Panchatiya. The amul plant has also been set up in Jaunpur. Amul is the key to earning money for the poor; every woman can earn around ₹20,000 through it.

Union Home Minister stated that the Congress and Samajwadi Party governments halted the construction of the Ram Mandir for 70 years. The Samajwadi government even fired bullets at Kar Sevaks. However, within five years of Shri Narendra Modi’s second term, the decision was made, Bhoomi Pujan was performed, and the grand Ram Mandir stands built today. Despite invitations from the Ram Mandir Trust, the INDI Alliance prioritized vote bank politics over attending the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony. Leaders like Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav, and Dimple Yadav did not attend the Pran Pratishtha as they were afraid of losing their vote bank, which included infiltrators.

Shri Shah stated that the BJP fears no one. Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has not only undertaken the construction of the Ram Mandir but has also restored the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, which was destroyed by Aurangzeb. The Somnath Mandir is also being rebuilt in gold. Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has revitalized all major cultural and religious centers. On one side, there are those who fired bullets at Ram devotees and on the other side, stands Shri Narendra Modi who has built the Ram Mandir. This election is between these two visions.

Union Home Minister stated that the UPA government allocated only ₹4 lakh 90 thousand crore to Uttar Pradesh over 10 years. In contrast, the Modi government has allocated ₹19 lakh 11 thousand crore to Uttar Pradesh over the same period. Additionally, the Modi government has provided tap water to 3 crore households, free medical treatment up to ₹5 lakh for 3 crore 40 lakh people, constructed 2 crore 35 lakh toilets, distributed free food grains to 14 crore people and provided 2 crore gas connections in Uttar Pradesh. Furthermore, the Modi government has established AIIMS in Rae Bareli and Gorakhpur, as well as IIT in Lucknow and NIFT in Varanasi. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress did not refrain from political maneuvering. They discouraged people from getting vaccinated by labeling it as the “Modi Teeka.” However, the people of the country saw through this tactic and continued to trust in the government’s efforts to combat the pandemic.

Shri Shah stated that when the BJP government came to power and Shri Yogi Adityanath became the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh in 2017, he systematically eliminated criminals to make the state safe. This election is about shaping the future of the country, ensuring its security and eradicating terrorism, Naxalism and poverty. This election is about building a Mahaan Bharat.

Union Home Minister appealed to the public to support the BJP candidates and re-elect Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi ji as the Prime Minister and ensure to achieve ‘400 Paar’.
