PM Narendra Modi at Jan VIshwas Sammelan in Anand, Gujarat
Addressing a massive ‘Jan VIshwas Sammelan’ in Anand, Gujarat, PM Shri Narendra Modi said, “The relationship between Gujarat and the BJP is not of politics but a relation of belongingness.” PM Shri Modi reiterated the paradigm shift Gujarat has seen under the BJP government that has been removing the barriers to development for more than two decades. He highlighted how the agricultural farmers in Gujarat have benefitted massively through improved water supply and electricity distribution.
PM Shri Modi said the BJP government in Gujarat has always strived for creating an environment that helps industries flourish, creates ample opportunities for youth and protects the interests of the farmers.
Talking about the unbreakable bond of 20 years between Gujarat and the BJP, Shri Modi said the BJP government is taking Gujarat to get global recognition through a variety of schemes and infrastructure creation. He also highlighted the threat of deceit and propaganda, which the opposition is instigating to derail Gujarat’s development.
PM Shri Modi further said if you meet some Congress leaders, then ask them whether they visited Sardar saheb’s tallest statue in the world to bow their head. They would not do it because if they bow their head here then their same head would be in danger at their Delhi high command.
Gujarat to take a high jump
When I was CM, the threat of Maoism was looming large over Gujarat. But, the people of Gujarat did not get swayed and they preferred the path of development. The results are for everyone to see, Shri Modi said.
He said the phase of running is over, and now Gujarat has to take a high jump. In the coming decades, Gujarat is going to emerge as a hydrogen hub, pharmacy hub, semiconductor hub, EV hub. GIFT City is going to give a huge opportunity to the youth here.
