Jammu, Sep 20: Former Minister and Pradesh Vice President Mr Surjeet Singh Slathia today said that the mission of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not only to steer the nation to highest pinnacles of progress and development but also to ensure that the benefits of welfare schemes percolate down to last person in the society.
“The Prime Minister’s vision of Atma Nirbhar (self-reliant) Bharat is Sashaktikaran (empowerment) of all, irrespective of religion, region or caste, as per his cherished agenda of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayas”, Slathia said, while addressing meeting of Ward No 73 Gadigarh, Ward No 58, Digiana and ward No 57 Model Town public meetings in the run up to scheduled elections to ULBs and civic bodies, adding that it is with this mantra that every BJP Karyakarta is reaching out to the people, aware them about the schemes tailored by the government for their welfare, listen to their problems and make every effort in getting these resolved by taking up the grievances or issues with appropriate forums in the administration.
Slathia referred in detail to the path-breaking initiatives like Ayushman Bharat, One Nation-One Ration Card, StartUp, Digital Bharat, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Jan Dhan Yojana, Izzat Ghar programme and much more, saying these schemes have changed the lives of the people. He said the health cover of Rs 5 lakh each is available to over 50 crore families across the country, which includes the entire population of Jammu and Kashmir, as a special dispensation. He made a mention of the most successful Covid containment campaign under the leadership of the Prime Minister, saying this was unparalleled across the pandemic inflicted world. While several major economies crashed, India made a mark as the world’s fifth economy, notwithstanding the fact of multiple challenges facing the country. Over 81 crore population is getting free rations for nearly three years now and this speaks of the concern of the BJP towards the compatriots, he added.
Slathia said the commitment of the Prime Minister to public welfare keeps every worker on mission mode to be amid them like a family. This inspiring ethos of the BJP since its inception from the Jana Sangh era is a major irritant for the Congress and the self-styled socialists, which is why they are channelizing all their negative energies towards maligning the party of the people, for the people and by the people. Earlier, the momentum of opposing the BJP was feeble but after these parties were almost rooted out from the ground by the people due to their self-centric, anarchistic, opportunistic and dynastic politics, the venom has gained the intensity. However, the more these parties orchestrate campaigns against the BJP, the more it becomes dearer to the people for its Nation First mission, he added.
