In the last decade, BJP’s public support has grown significantly: Rajnath Singh

| Published on:

Hon’ble Union Defence Minister and Senior BJP leader Shri Rajnath Singh addressed a media conference in Ahmedabad on Sunday. Shri Rajnath Singh expressed his confidence in the Bharatiya Janata Party’s victory, considering the two-phase elections. Shri Singh praised the development initiatives undertaken by the BJP government, led by the esteemed Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. Union Defence Minister condemned the halted development projects during the Congress tenure and criticized the divisive nature of the Congress manifesto and strongly denounced the Congress party’s appeasement politics.

Shri Singh remarked that two phases of voting have concluded nationwide, and from the election trends, it’s evident that the Bharatiya Janata Party is on course to surpass the target of crossing 400 seats. For years, the BJP lacked a significant support base in the southern states, struggling to secure seats. However, considering the current scenario, it can be confidently stated that the election outcomes in the southern states will be favorable for the party. The 2024 elections are centered on the Bharatiya Janata Party’s accomplishments over the past decade, emphasizing good governance, development, and the popularity, credibility, and track record of the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. India has long sought governance and leadership capable of propelling the nation forward on the path of development, and it has found this under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.

Respected Shri Singh highlighted that India has now emerged as the fastest-growing economy globally. When the BJP government assumed office in 2014, India held the 11th position in the world economy. Over the past decade, India has ascended to the 5th spot. Leading economists and financial institutions project that India’s economy will climb to third place globally by 2027. This remarkable development has been made possible under the capable leadership of the Hon’ble Prime Minister. He possesses a clear vision, a defined mission, and an unwavering passion. In contrast, Congress lacks a strong leader, coherent policies, or resolute determination. Despite governing for over 50 years, the Congress Party failed to eradicate poverty from the country. However, under the leadership of Shri Narendra Modi in the last decade, 25 crore people have risen above the poverty line.

Union Minister Shri Singh pointed out that while the Congress Party accuses the government of endangering the country’s democracy, the facts tell a different story. He highlighted that previously, 28 MPs were elected unopposed in the Lok Sabha, with 20 belonging to the Congress Party. 2 MPs each from SP and Congress, along with 1 independent MP, were also elected unopposed to the Lok Sabha. The entire country knows that the Congress is resorting to such sophistry out of desperation due to the fear of defeat. It’s well-known that if any party has been most active in destabilizing elected state governments in the country, it’s the Congress Party. President’s rule under Article 356 has been imposed 132 times in the country, out of which 90 instances occurred during Congress’s rule. Indira Gandhi has scored a half-century to bring down the government. Congress alleges that democracy is under threat when the government takes action against corruption. However, if the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has acted improperly, individuals have the option to seek redress through the courts. The significant increase in assets and cash deposited by the ED since 2014—amounting to Rs 1 lakh crore in assets and Rs 22 thousand crore in cash—compared to a mere Rs 34 lakh before 2014, underscores the effectiveness of anti-corruption efforts post-2014. The Olympics of corruption was played in the ten years of UPA. Its biggest organizer was the Congress Party. 

Hon’ble Union Minister Shri Singh emphasized that in its manifesto, BJP has talked about organizing the Olympics to be held in 2036. While BJP’s manifesto promises a new, capable, and developed India, Congress’s manifesto thrives on divisiveness and appeasement. Mahatma Gandhi had envisioned abolishing Congress during independence, and now it’s the people’s turn to fulfill that vision. A person from a poor family in the country is poised to become the Prime Minister for the third time, showcasing the strength of our democracy. This upcoming election in 2024 will serve as a testament to the robustness and credibility of India’s democratic system. US Ambassador Garcetti had said that if any nation aspiring to explore future possibilities could turn to India. Now the entire world has the same attitude towards India. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has gained significant recognition on the global stage. Now, with a CEO from India leading one of the world’s most prominent and large companies, it marks a remarkable achievement for the nation.
