Seoni/Khandwa (MP), November 5 (Language) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday gave the credit to the tribal people for making Lord Ram Purushottam and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is the priest of the tribals, while the Congress has no concern for their welfare. no worry.
Addressing public meetings in Seoni and Khandwa for the November 17 assembly elections in the state, the Prime Minister targeted the Congress and said it was trying to “install its sons and capture the party organization in Madhya Pradesh”. There is an “internal feud” going on between two senior leaders of the BJP. Clearly he was referring to Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh.
The Prime Minister said that Congress is desperate to form the government in Madhya Pradesh and wants to make the state an ATM to ‘loot money’ for the Lok Sabha elections.
He said the BJP government will spend Rs 15,000 crore through a special mission for the welfare of the Bharia, Baiga and Sahariya tribes, who were ignored by the previous Congress governments.
“We are devotees and priests of the tribals who made Prince Ram the Purushottam Lord Ram,” Modi said in Seoni district. Seoni falls in Mahakaushal area where tribal vote is important.
Out of total 230 assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh, 47 seats are reserved for Scheduled Tribe candidates. Of the four assembly seats in Seoni, two are reserved for tribal candidates.
In Khandwa, the Prime Minister said the Congress is desperate to come to power to turn Madhya Pradesh into an ‘ATM’ before the Lok Sabha elections and expressed confidence that the BJP will retain power at the Center for the third consecutive term.
He said that despite being in power in the country for five-six decades after independence, Congress did nothing for the welfare of the tribal community.
He also said that the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, which provides free ration to 80 crore poor people, will be extended for the next five years.
The Prime Minister mentioned the work done by the BJP government for the upliftment of tribals and criticized the previous Congress government over various scams.
He said that before 2014, during the Congress rule, scams worth lakhs of rupees took place, but during the BJP government, nothing like this happened and the money thus saved was being spent on providing free ration to the poor people.
Taking aim at Congress, Modi said, “Congress is creating confusion among the tribals.” The word tribal does not sound good in his mouth. These tribals took care of Lord Ram. Did the tribal society not make Prince Ram the Purushottam Ram?
He said, “We are devotees and priests of the tribals who made Prince Ram Purushottam Ram.”
Modi said when the BJP came to power under the leadership of then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, a separate ministry for the welfare of tribals was formed for the first time in the country.
Modi said, “This is our culture. A ministry, minister and budget have been allocated for the upliftment of tribals.” He also said that Tribal Pride Day is celebrated every year on 15 November.
He said that Congress kept the tribals in the dark.
Without naming anyone, the Prime Minister said, “Congress was concerned about one family. Their state governments named roads and streets after them. Even their names are there in their manifesto.
Taking aim at Congress, Modi said that ‘cloth tearing’ competition is going on in Madhya Pradesh Congress.
The sarcasm comes in the backdrop of a video of Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath in which he had asked Congress workers to “tear clothes” of his colleague Digvijay Singh for refusing to give an election ticket to a leader.
In Khandwa, the Prime Minister said, “They (Congress) want to loot the state’s money and send it (to Delhi) in tractors.” I am confident that BJP will form the government at the Center for the third time in 2024. To fulfill your dream, a (BJP) government in the state and a government at the Center will work at double the speed.
Citing the examples of Karnataka and Rajasthan, he alleged that Congress is indulging in corruption and ruining the states where their government is formed. They are engaged in infighting and have no time for people.
The Prime Minister said, “Infighting continues in the Congress and their judges sitting in Delhi give decisions and run their shops.”
Without taking names, Modi said, referring to the dispute between Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, “After getting a clear majority in Rajasthan, two groups have been fighting for 24 hours for the last four and a half years.”
He said that Congress has harmed Karnataka, development there has come to a standstill and expressed doubt over its Chief Minister continuing in power.
The Prime Minister said that look at the Congress government formed in Karnataka just six months ago… the Chief Minister does not know how long he will remain the head of the state. Congress has ruined Karnataka, development has stopped there.
Modi said, “Things have changed after BJP came to power at the Center and schemes are being made for the welfare of the public, which resulted in schemes like free ration to the people during Covid-19.”
He alleged that after being out of power for many years, Congress’s hunger for money has increased manifold.
Referring to the widespread availability of mobile phones in the country, Modi said his government’s policies and ensuring savings for people have made mobile phones as well as internet services affordable in the country.
He said that if Congress had been in power, the monthly fee of Rs 300-400 for mobile phone and data would have become Rs 4 to five thousand per month.
Modi also said that Jan Aushadhi Kendras set up by the government gave 80 per cent discount on medicines and saved around Rs 25,000 crore for poor people in the country.
He said that farmers in India are getting urea (fertilizer) at the rate of Rs 300 per bag, whose price is 10 times less than that in America.
He mentioned several other initiatives of the BJP government, including naming the Habibganj railway station in Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal after Rani Kamlapati.
The Malwa-Nimar region holds a major stake in the political landscape of the state, including the Mahakaushal region as well as tribal votes. In the 2018 elections, Congress had outperformed BJP in both the regions.
