Modi sounds first bugle of LS polls from J&K
2/5/2019 10:07:56 PM
As was usual the Kashmir centric political leaders were critical of Modi because he had berated terrorism and pro-Jammu sentiments. The promises made I n the past by the Congress to waive farm loan was simply meant to net votes. Attacking the Congress over its promise of farm loan waiver, Prime Minister NarendraModi has said the party uses the measure only to win elections. "The Congress had promised to waive farmers' loans worth Rs 6 lakh crore in 2008-09, but it gave a loan relief of Rs 52,000 crore only after coming to power," Modi said at a rally at Vijaypur here. He said CAG report found that about 25-30 lakh people who got loan waiver were not even eligible for it. Ridiculing the loan waivers given by the Congress in Madhya Pradesh, the PM said some beneficiaries have been given cheques of Rs 13 only.He said under his direct benefit transfer PM-KISAN scheme, Rs 75,000 crore will be allocated annually. It means Rs 7.50 lakh crore will be deposited in farmers' accounts in the next 10 years has The scheme aims to cover 90 per cent of the farmers who have less than five acres of land. Rs 6,000 will be transferred to their accounts annually in three equal installments of Rs 2,000 each, he said. "People know the track record of the country's 'naamdar'. They get 'fever' of loan waivers just before elections... They try to act as 'messiah' of farmers by announcing farm loan waivers once in 10 years," he said referring to the UPA rule. Modi has said, "For the Government of India, the national interest and the interest of the people are supreme." "The vision of New Bharat is to ensure security of the country and uplift the living standards of the countrymen. The Centre is fully dedicated towards this goal and with your cooperation, the New Bharat will be fully capable and secure as well," he said. Referring to the upcoming the LokSabha elections, he said, "The 2019 fight is to take forward the country on the path of development and let us join hands in this direction. "He attacked the Congress for allegedly hoodwinking force personel and said his government concentrated on "Jai Kisan and Jai Jawan" in the Budget. "Along with farmers, we made a big decision of focusing on defence in the budget. I want to congratulate thousands of soldiers' families that the defence budget for the first time crossed over Rs three lakh crore. It will help improve the defence of the country and will also benefit the troops," he said. "I want to assure the people facing shelling from across the border that every effort will be made for their security. On the one hand, the enemy is being given a befitting response and on the other, 14,000 bunkers are being constructed to ensure safety of the people," he said. His was the first bugle sounded by Modi in Jammuj and later visited Ladakh an d Sri nagar.In Ladakh he opened the first university and the separatists were flat when the Prime Minister signaled the opening of various projects. And the listless coalition Government was forgotten and Modi suggested to the bureaucracy that the epending works should be completed on time He did refer toTerrorism is also being dealt with sternly. The work on incomplete projects was speeded up," Modisaid, promising strengthening of democracy and balanced development in the state. He also targeted the previous PDP-led government, saying several things could not happen in the state in spite of the BJP being a coalition partner. He meant that when the PDP had a coalition Government which failed to deliver the goods what about the Congress which would face a miserable period if voted to powerLarge number of people in Vijaypur and Ladakh listened to him and the normal life was disrupted by separ at ists calls for shutdown but Modi had a field day when he berated the separatists for their repeated calls for hartals. He did not refer to the separatists an d their game in siding with Pakistan. He could have done that but he ignored them.
