Before 2014, politics was often centred towards “vote banks, casteism, and religion”: Jagat Prakash Nadda » Kamal Sandesh

Hon’ble National President of BJP, Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda addressed a public meeting in Motihari in Bihar on Wednesday. He criticized the dynastic, corrupt, and anti-Sanatan mentality of the arrogant alliance parties, highlighting the developmental achievements accomplished in both the country and Bihar under the BJP’s tenure. During the event, Motihari Lok Sabha candidate Smt Lovely Anand, former Deputy CM and Katihar MLA Shri Tarkishore Prasad, among other leaders were present.

Shri Nadda stated that the 2024 Lok Sabha election isn’t just any election, it’s the nation’s election, the largest Panchayat of our country. It is the election that will give a new direction to the country. There was a prevailing sentiment that no change was possible, and trust in political leaders had eroded, tarnishing India’s image as a corrupt and stagnant nation. However, under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and the BJP government, there has been a remarkable transformation. People have regained confidence in the government, restoring faith in politics and governance. This election marks the journey towards ‘Viksit Bharat’, with the common man actively driving the vision forward. Previously, politics in India revolved around caste, religion, and appeasement, leading to divisions among communities and the exploitation of these divisions for electoral gains. However, within 10 years, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has worked tirelessly to eliminate appeasement and caste-based politics. He has embraced every religion equally, upholding the principles of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas,’ which have become the cornerstone of his governance. As a result, India has emerged as a leading nation on the global stage, transitioning from a country that used to ask for assistance to one that now provides aid and support to others. These achievements have resonated strongly with the people of Bihar, reaffirming their support for ‘Phir Ek Baar Modi Sarkar.’

Respected Shri Nadda emphasized that despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine War, the economies of America, Japan, and Europe have experienced instability. However, under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India’s economy has not only weathered these challenges but has also shown significant advancements, emerging as a bright spot on the global economic landscape. 5-7 years back, the economy of India was at 11th position, which eventually climbed to no. 5 under the leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi surpassing Britain. India is poised to become the third biggest economy in the third term of PM Shri Narendra Modi. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has adhered to the mantra of service, good governance and welfare for the poor. India has risen to the third position in the automobile sector, surpassing Japan. Earlier, the Tetanus vaccine took 25 to 28 years, Tuberculosis medicine took 30 years to become a national program, and Japanese encephalitis medicine took 100 years to arrive in India. Under the leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi, India has transformed into the ‘World’s dispensary,’ producing some of the world’s most effective and affordable medicines. India became 2nd biggest medicine manufacturer in the world. PM Shri Narendra Modi also ensured 220 crore double vaccines for every citizen of India during the COVID-19 outbreak. For a decade, mobile phones were imported from various countries including China, Japan Korea, etc, but now over 97% of mobile phones are “Made in India”. 

BJP National President stated that under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has achieved remarkable milestones in manufacturing, including bulletproof jackets, helicopters, fighter planes, arms, and ammunition. These products are not only catering to domestic needs but are also being exported to other nations. Additionally, the BJP-led government has prioritized empowering various sections of society, including the poor, marginalized communities, Dalits, oppressed individuals, underprivileged groups, women, youth, and farmers, by giving them a platform and voice in the nation’s development journey. 

Shri Nadda highlighted the impact of government schemes like Pradhan Mantri Gareeb Kalyan Anna Yojana, providing free food to 80 crore people including 8 crore 70 Lakh in Bihar. This initiative has lifted 25 crore people out of poverty. The scheme will continue for another 5 years. Under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme, over 11 crore farmers have been receiving an annual assistance of ₹6000. Among these beneficiaries, more than 80 lakh farmers are from Bihar alone. Additionally, PM Modi has committed to achieving self-reliance in pulses and oils. India will become the hub of “Sri Ann’. Over 4 crore houses have been built under PM Awas Yojana for the poor. More than 40 houses in each panchayat. PM Shri Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the PM Suryaghar Muft Bijli Yojana, which aims to encourage the adoption of solar energy. This scheme allows them to reduce their electricity bills to zero. Moreover, families generating excess electricity will have the chance to sell it back to the government. Ayushman Bharat Yojana offers ₹5 Lakh health coverage to 50 crore people (40% of India’s population), making it the world’s largest health coverage program. In the third term of PM Shri Narendra Modi, every citizen with 70 years and above age will receive ₹5 Lakh health coverage. Under the leadership of PM Shri Narendra Modi, Bihar has witnessed rapid infrastructure expansion, including improvements to highways, the Gandhi Setu, and Pahleza Ghat. The Centre has earmarked an impressive ₹10 lakh crore for infrastructure development in Bihar within one year, with a significant portion being allocated as a grant-in-aid, totalling 3 lakh crore. Despite having several railway ministers from the state in the past who did not prioritize railway development, the Centre has substantially increased the railway budget for Bihar, by nine times. Additionally, plans are underway to establish eight new medical colleges in Bihar, while more than 3500 kilometres of national highways are slated for expansion in the state. 

Respected Shri Nadda emphasized that the Congress party is unparalleled in dishonesty, deceit, and misleading tactics. During the development of the coronavirus vaccine, they misled the nation by branding it as “Modi Teeka” and claiming it was unsafe, while clandestinely receiving the vaccine themselves and urging the public not to trust it. Additionally, the Congress dismissed India as a nation of illiterates with no use for the internet or WiFi. However, today, over 2 lakh panchayats have been connected with optical fiber, and common service centres have been established in 2 lakh villages.

Hon’ble Shri Nadda highlighted that Congress once labelled the people as illiterate, yet those very individuals are now engaging in digital transactions even at small shops. Even hawkers are now embracing digital payment methods. Vande Bharat trains are elevating railway services to unprecedented levels compared to the dilapidated state of trains during the UPA era.

Shri Nadda asserted that RJD stands for ‘Rishwat Khori, Jungleraj, Daldal.’ While RJD talks about job creation, PM Shri Narendra Modi has initiated the politics of accountability through report cards. He is committed to providing jobs and advancing the nation. Congress, another corrupt party in the alliance, has been embroiled in numerous scandals including coal, rice, sugar, AgustaWestland, Submarine scam, and 2G. Corruption has permeated every sphere under Congress’s leadership, be it in space, sea, underground, or on the surface of the Earth. Lalu Yadav has been implicated in the fodder scam, Alkatara scam, and land-for-jobs scam. Arvind Kejriwal is involved in liquor and medicine scams and is currently out on bail until 1 June, likely to be jailed again. Additionally, Manish Sisodia and Satender Jain are also in jail.

Respected Shri Nadda highlighted that Rahul Gandhi carries the constitution but has failed to read it even once. Babasaheb Ambedkar clearly stated that reservation based on religion is not permissible. PM Shri Narendra Modi has reiterated that as long as he and BJP are in power, the rights of SC, ST, and OBC communities will remain intact. However, Congress and their governments in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka have attempted to dilute the reservation for Dalits, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes to cater to a particular vote bank. The INDI alliance is full of anti-Ram parties.  Under Sonia Gandhi’s leadership, the UPA government had filed an affidavit in court stating that the Shri Ram is Imaginary and there is no existence, lacking any historical or scientific basis. Kapil Sibal had urged the court to delay and prolong the Ram Janmabhoomi case. However, the public’s support for Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi led to the court’s favourable decision, culminating in the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ of the Ram temple on January 22. They are also Anti- Sanatana.  Udhayanidhi Stalin’s remarks likening Sanatan to Dengue and Malaria and A raja said Sanatana is HIV. But, Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi stayed silent on these comments. They are anti-national. Rahul Gandhi aligns with those who raised ‘Afzal Hum Sharminda Hain, Tere Qatil Zinda Hain’ slogans in JNU. Their support for divisive ideologies, like the “Bharat Tere Tukde Honge, Inshah Allah Inshah Allah!”  Congress also made such people Lok Sabha Candidate who supported the accused of parliament attack. 

Hon’ble National President of BJP, Shri Nadda emphasized the sharp contrast between the corrupt, Jungle Raj, anti-reservation, appeasement politics, and anti-national forces on one side and the nationalist BJP under PM Shri Narendra Modi on the other. He urged people to elect Smt. Lovely Anand and contribute to taking India forward.
