Claiming that Amethi is a true reflection of BJP Government’s Slogan of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ , Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the Gandhi family for neglect of the region saying the region suffered because of the apathy of one family who gave fake assurances of development but actually did nothing.
“One family is solely responsible for the backwardness of Amethi as they have launched development projects to fulfill their vested interests. The glaring example is a cycle factory , whose land was transferred to a trust run by the family ,” the PM said without taking any name.
PM in an apparent reference to Rahul Gandhi in his Amethi constituency commented, “Some people keep giving “made in..” speeches, But Modi walks the talk. We have made “Made in Amethi” a reality. This factory should have come into being 8-9 year back. But the full potential of the initiative was never realised.”
“Saab ka saath and sab ka vikas is our mantra. Those who voted for us and who did not, everyone belongs to us. After 5 years, I humbly say that Smriti Irani was a new face to the people in Amethi, but your love has made us popular and helped Smriti Irani to develop Amethi on a large scale,” he said adding that those who voted for us and those who did not they are all our people. Smriti Irani was your candidate. Though we could not win, but we won your hearts.
Addressing a public meeting after dedicating the Ordinance unit which will manufacture world’s best assault rifle AK-203 and launching development projects worth over Rs 538 crores here at Korba on Sunday, Modi alleged that land was taken for food park but no industries came up. Land was transferred in their name through the back door. Houses given to Dalits in 2008 started crumbling, he said.
“They sat on Rafale deal for years. Now they do not want to see the deal through due to their benefit. They wanted their cut in the deal and hence was obstructing it. But the first Rafale jet will be on Indian sky soon,” he said.
“They sat on Rafale for years. We are trying to bring in the jets and some people are trying to object to the purchase. Supreme Court too is supporting the government’s decision on the Rafale deal, “PM said.
The PM said: “Was not it unfair not to provide latest weapons to our forces? That government did not bother about our armed forces. People should be reminded how the government delayed acquisition of bulletproof jackets for our forces. Who were these people who delayed production of weapons and acquisition of bulletproof jackets.”
Claiming that now Amethi will get an international recognition when our forces will use rifles made in Amethi. This work should have started 8-9 years ago.”Our forces had then made a request to the government mentioning their needs. This was the reason this factory was sanctioned. Those who cannot do this much, how can someone trust them? They could not even decide on the arms to be manufactured here. They could not decide upon the land to be allotted,” PM said.
Modi thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for this joint venture. “This could be possible in very short time due to him. Also thank Russian friends associated with the project. Some people roam all over the world and then in rallies, say ‘Made in Ujjain, Made in Indore’ but we have made ‘Made in Amethi’ a reality,” he added.
The PM said 12 lakh farmers in Amethi will be benefitted through the Kisan Nidhi scheme.” They never tried to establish and empower farmers. The farm loan waiver scheme has only benefited middlemen. But our Kisan Nidhi scheme has in true sense benefited farmers,” he said.
He said gas connection, free electricity have been made possible because of our government. We are trying to help the poor to develop and let families come above the poverty line.
The meeting was also addressed by defence minister Nirmala Sitaraman, union textile minister Smriti Irani and UP CM Yogi Adityanath.
