Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the Opposition, saying that credit-hungry people or those whose only ambition is to lord over the country have done much harm to it. Addressing the public gathering in Guwahati, Assam, ahead of the historic Bihur celebrations, PM Modi took aim at the Congress, stating that they can’t claim credit for the growth in the state.
BJP’s Service to the Nation and Its People
PM Modi emphasized that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in the service of the nation and its people, and commitment and devotion to the country are at the core of its efforts.
Opposition’s Damage to the Country
The Prime Minister accused power and credit-hungry leaders, whose only ambition is to lord over the country, of causing much damage to the people of India.
PM Modi underlined his attachment to the people of Assam, saying that “We work with the spirit of being your servants. That is why Northeast does not seem far to us, and the feeling of belongingness remains regardless of where we are.” He added that people in the Northeast have come forward and taken ownership of their development and are moving forward with the mantra of development.
Infrastructure Development in the Northeast
The Northeast has got its first AIIMS, and Assam has got three new medical colleges. In the last nine years, the government has worked on infrastructure projects, which is why everyone here talks about connectivity-related infrastructure projects.
Government’s Focus on People’s Welfare
The government is focused on reducing the difficulties of the people of the country instead of catering to a particular vote bank. It aims to ensure that sisters do not have to travel far for treatment and that no poor person has to postpone treatment for want of money.
Transformation of Healthcare Sector
PM Modi mentioned the transformation of the country’s healthcare sector, saying that only about 150 medical colleges were built in the country in the ten years before 2014, while about 300 new medical colleges have been built by the government in the last nine years. MBBS seats in the country have also doubled to more than one lakh in the last nine years. To address the issue of expensive medicines, the government opened more than 9,000 Jan Aushadhi Kendras for access to affordable medicines and launched the Ayushman Bharat Yojana to provide health insurance to the poor.
Later on Friday, PM Modi witnessed a colourful Bihu programme, which featured performances by more than 10,000 Bihu dancers. He also inaugurated, laid the foundation stone, and dedicated projects worth Rs 14,300 crore to the nation. Rongali Bihu is observed in the first week of the month of Bohag (mid-April) every year. The Assamese celebrate Bihu thrice a year, signifying the distinct cycles of farming – Bhogali or Magh Bihu in January, Bohag or Rongali Bihu in April, and Kongali Bihu in October.
In conclusion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech in Guwahati was an attack on the Opposition’s power and credit-hungry leaders, emphasizing the BJP’s service to the nation and its people. He also highlighted the government’s focus on people’s welfare, healthcare transformation, and the Northeast’s development.
