'Violence Has no Future, Peace Does': PM Narendra Modi on Maoists in Dantewada

Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking at a public meeting in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada.


Dantewada, Chhattisgarh:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing a public meeting in Chhattisgarh's Maoist-affected Dantewada.

Here is what he said:
  • The adivasis of this area, which has the blessing of Mother Danteshwari, have taught the world how to live.
  • I was scheduled to take part in a programme in Raipur also, but a storm destroyed the venue.
  • Many were injured. I wish all the injured speedy recovery.
  • This is probably the first time in Bastar's history that projects worth Rs 24,000 crore have been signed in just one hour.
  • I can imagine what this will do for the development of Bastar.
  • People know that employment is of prime importance. They can build a house, educate their children, etc, only if they are employed.
  • Wherever one goes, people will say, "Do anything but ensure that our children get jobs."
  • No parent wants their child to go far only to live in slums in cities.
  • That's why it is the government's responsibility to bring development to everyone.
  • The Bastar region has had coal. It has also had people, as it has had governments. And, it has also had unemployment.
  • India should get rail connectivity all across.
  • Jan Dhan Yojana is a way to empower each individual and bring him at par with the country's mainstream.
  • The fruits of development must reach the poorest of the poor.
  • Jobs for the youth are at the core of our policies.
  • At present, you send iron out and get steel from outside. This has to stop.
  • We will make steel from the iron ore here.
  • Do not get disappointed. Even Naxal activities will be fought.
  • I am sure that humanity exists in people who indulge in such activities and they will change.
  • There is no future in violence. If there is a future, it is in peace.
  • It is a plough on the shoulders that can bring development, not guns.
  • Skill development is critical to ensuring employment.
  • Even developed and happy nations of the world are laying emphasis on skill development.
  • Under the previous government, the only news in the paper was of scams. We have been in power for a year have thr been such news?
  • But some people were happy keeping people poor. Now, when change is happening, they cant digest it.
