The entire opposition will stand together with our jawans and our Govt.: Rahul Gandhi

Former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh and Congress President Rahul Gandhi addressed the media.

Congress President Rahul gandhi said: This is a terrible tragedy. This type of violence done against our security forces is absolutely disgusting. The aim of terrorism is to divide this country and we are not going to be divided.

The entire opposition will stand together with our jawans and our Govt.

Former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh said:
As the Congress President put it, today is the day of mourning. Our country has lost close to 40 jawans of the armed forces. Our foremost duty is to convey to the families that we are with them.

The Congress party stands in full support of our jawans and their families. We will do all that is necessary to keep this nation united.

‘Their political culture of abusing Modi may give them space in television but the elections are fought on one’s vision for the nation, not slander and attack.’

PM Modi in Tiruppur – Speech Highlights

Modi1

  • You all would be happy to know that in the Union Budget, a historic scheme was announced that would safeguard the wellbeing of those brothers and sisters who work in factories, mills, companies, small industries, textile units, houses and farms.
  • This is the Pradhanmatri Shramyogi Maan Dhan Yojna. A regular pension of Rs. 3,000 after the age of 60 years is being ensured for the workers getting less than Rs. 15,000 per month.
  • The work culture of the NDA is different from previous Governments. Those who got the opportunity to rule the nation for years did not bother about India’s defence sector. For them, this sector was only about brokering deals and helping their own set of friends. From the seas to the skies, the Congress has several scams associated with defence. In the process, the party did not allow the modernisation of the defence forces for the long years that they were in power.
  • Why is it that every middleman caught has a link with some Congress leader or the other. Congress also leaves no opportunity to belittle our army.
  • One of their leaders used un-pardonable language for the Army Chief. When our Army went across the borders to do surgical strikes, the Congress questioned that as well.
  • A few days ago, the nation saw with utter disgust a story of how top UPA minister kept pushing a narrative that our Army will do a coup. Every Indian knows that our Army can do no such thing but look at the Congress attitude.

  • I want to take you back to the UPA time. There was a very wise Minister from Tamil Nadu, you know who I am talking about right- the Recounting Minister The man who thinks all the knowledge in the world resides only in his brains.
  • In his typical arrogance he said- why is the middle class so worried about price rise, they buy such expensive ice cream & mineral water! Mr. Recounting Minister, middle class does not need the taunts by you & the Congress. They have rejected you & will continue to do so.
  • The good work of the NDA Govt has made some people very unhappy. Those who thought power was their divine right, those who thought only they are born to rule are disturbed because here is a Govt that is working. Their unhappiness has turned into desperation and abuse.
  • Whatever question they are asked, their answer has to have the word Modi! They are asked- what is your view towards agriculture welfare, their answer is Modi! They are asked- what is your plan for MSME sector, they say Modi.
  • Their political culture of abusing Modi may give them space in television but the elections are fought on one’s vision for the nation, not slander and attack.
  • You have placed a Government in Delhi that is putting a lock on the corrupt misdeeds of several people. This is exactly how the great K Kamaraj wanted a Government to be run- where there is zero tolerance towards corruption.
  • Earlier, we had heard of a family pack in mobile recharges and ice-creams. Now, it seems there is a family pack for bail too.
  • Those who thought they could never be questioned, who lorded over the nation are now having to give an account for their loot…this is what has changed in India today.
  • Our friends in the Opposition are very funny. They say- Modi government is a failure, Modi has done nothing, Modi is going to be badly defeated but still, they have to form big alliances to defeat Modi.
  • For the first time in India’s history, a Govt has spoken about doubling the income of farmers and that is our Govt. During the Budget, the historic PM Kisan Samman Nidhi was announced under which farmers having under 5 acres of land will be given Rs. 6000 per year as support.
  • The UPA’s poorly thought of waivers come once in ten years, benefit very few farmers and cost the nation Rs. 50 thousand crore The NDA’s PM Kisan Yojana is a yearly benefit and will ensure Rs. 7 lakh 50 thousand crore goes to the bank accounts of the farmers in 10 years.

For us, social justice is not a mathematical equation, “Plus Here, Minus There”.

Our govt brought the 10% reservation quota for the poor of the general category without altering the existing reservation system in the country:

PM Narendramodi talking about the taunts on Middle Class by the the “Recounting Minister of Tamil Nadu”

 

 

We have heard of family packs in mobile recharges & ice creams. But now there is a family pack for getting a bail too.

Look at the change in India today. Those who thought that they could never be questioned are made to give an account for their loot now:
