Narendra Modi In Gujarat Highlights: Last PM To Visit Rajkot Was Morarji Desai, 40 Years Ago

PM Narendra Modi addressed a rally in Gujarat's Rajkot today.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Gujarat on a two-day visit. His visit is focused to shore up the BJP's position with the powerful Patel community that has traditionally voted for the party. The Prime Minister will hold a roadshow over nine kilometers in the heart of the city. He will also inaugurate the Sauni Yojna, a project which will fill the Aji dam near Rajkot with Narmada waters. He addressed a rally in the Samajik Adhikarita Shivir in Rajkot.


Here are the highlights of PM Narendra Modi in Rajkot:
  • The last PM to visit Rajkot was Morarji Desai, nearly 40 years ago.
  • Rajkot has a very special place in my life. If Rajkot had not elected me and sent me to Gandhinagar, I may never have come to Delhi.
  • My political career started in Rajkot. And I will never forget the love Rajkot has showered upon me.
  • I once again bow my head down before the people of Rajkot.
  • When NDA MPs chose me as their leader, when I was chosen PM-candidate.
  • The government of India is a government that is fully dedicated to the poor of the nation.
  • I have seen many families and mothers who were blessed with a divyang child... the parents shower that child with so much love.
  • It is our responsibility, as a nation, to take care of divyangs.
  • I remember watching so many people who have contributed so much to help divyangs in Rajkot, in Gujarat.
  • Once I formed a government, I decided to pass a divyang child with 25 marks in an examination instead of the usual 33.
  • By choosing the word 'divyang', I did not complete my job.
  • You can see that someone is communicating with divyang people here using sign language.. They are telling them what I'm saying.
  • I also noticed that interpretation for such people in Tamil Nadu was different, in Gujarat was different.
  • We decided to introduce a uniform sign language for divyangs to ensure they can communicate easily in any part of India.
  • Since 1992, the government decided to allocate a budget for the disabled.
  • Between 1992-2013, only 55 schemes were introduced wherein the disabled were helped.
  • In three years, we have done 5,500 such programmes to help and benefit the divyangs.
  • It proves that this government believes in 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas'.
  • Even today, 18,500 divyangs have assembled under a single roof. We have created a record and I applaud the government.
  • I enjoy interacting with differently-abled people.
  • We must empathise with such people, we must be aware of their problems.. I have made it mandatory to ensure that schemes are formed keeping diasbled people in mind. And I am happy that Gujarat has adopted this model.
  • Due to this, NGOs who work for disabled are also encouraged.
