Apart from being a lot of other things, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has proven himself to be a game changer for the BJP when it comes to elections. Be it Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat or even Karnataka, the difference between the BJP and other parties has been the Prime Minister himself. Now months ahead of yet another important election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi seems to be doing the same in Rajasthan.
This past Saturday, he addressed a rally at state’s capital Jaipur and the enthusiasm among the masses about him was evident. A huge crowd had gathered to hear the Prime Minister’s address. From his speech, Narendra Modi lashed out at the archrivals Congress.
He said that because many top Congress leaders are currently out on bail, people have started calling the party as ‘Bail-gadi’. “Look at the Congress today. Many senior Congress leaders are out on bail… People have started calling Congress a ‘Bail-gaadi.”
Prime Minister greatly appreciated the works done by incumbent BJP government in Rajasthan led by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. “Never forget the tough circumstances in which Vasundhara Raje took oath in 2013. When she took oath, systems were not working properly. She has changed the work culture in the state,” he said.
Later the Prime Minister interacted with more than 2.5 Lakh beneficiaries of various central government schemes such as the Ujjwal Yojana, the Pradhan Mantri Sanwad Yojana, the Mudra Yojana, National Child Health Programme and others. Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and I&B Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore accompanied him.
The beneficiaries of government schemes expressed their gratitude to the Prime Minister, who in return also thanked people of Rajasthan for their warm welcome. “Rajasthan, known for giving a grand welcome, giving so much love to those who visit… I am witnessing it today in person.This is the land of the brave… I salute it.There is a balance between strength, courage, faith… and it is a part of the way of life here.Rajasthan has always inspired people from all over the country… history is full of evidence of this,” he said, thanking people of Rajasthan.
During this visit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled several central government projects and moreover expressed his satisfaction with the progress of ongoing ones in the state.
