Varanasi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday launched the Rs 45,000 crore nationwide Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) in his parliamentary constituency, Varanasi.

26-1437894584-narendramodi6The city will get Rs 572 crore for the project that aims at underground cabling of power lines, cutting line losses and many other things, officials said.

Modi said he was happy to launch this nationwide project from Varanasi and urged people to put LED bulbs in their houses so that electricity bills could be slashed, and also for better illumination.

The prime minister said his government was committed to bringing power to every village and every household in India by 2022, when the nation celebrates the 75th year of attaining freedom.

Modi thanked the people of Varanasi and said he was indebted to them as it was because of them that he became a parliamentarian and then the prime minister.

 

He also launched seven other projects and schemes that include construction of a ring road in Varanasi city, beautification and widening and revamp of the road from Babatpur airport to the city.

Modi referred to the recent order of the Allahabad High Court in which it had quashed the assimilation of shiksha mitras as teachers in government schools.

He said he would definitely try and find a way to resolve the problem once the court order was received in writing.

“I am pained to hear that a shiksha mitra committed suicide on hearing the court verdict,” Modi said and urged the people not to take such drastic steps and instead be patient and let the government find a way.

Congress helping those who want to weaken Army: Modi, wikimedia commons

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress of aiding those who he said want to weaken the Indian Army and raising questions over the government and even the Supreme Court over Rafale fighter jets.

“Today, there are two camps in the country. One is the government that is trying to strengthen our Army. The other wants to weaken our Army at any cost,” Modi said, flagging off the 900th coach of Modern Rail Factory and a Humsafar Rake in Rae Bareli, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency.

“The country has been witnessing that the Congress stands by those powers who don’t want our armed forces to be strengthened,” he added, in an obvious reference to Sonia Gandhi’s son and Congress President Rahul Gandhi who has been accusing corruption in the Rafale jet deal with France.

The Prime Minister said the country was watching “such people” who he added were “getting support of countries pitted against India”.

“What is the reason that people in Pakistan clap when some of our leaders speak?”

The Prime Minister pointedly accused the Congress of raising questions over the dignity of the Defence Ministry, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Air Force, France and the Supreme Court over the purchase of Rafale jet aircraft.

“Some people only accept lies and speak lies. For them the country’s Defence Ministry, Defence Minster and Air Force officers are liars. The French government is also a liar. Now, the country’s Supreme Court is also a liar for them.

“But truth does not need ‘shringaar’ and lies will always die. The country will never forgive the Congress over its attitude towards the Army.”

“What kind of people are they who do not care about the country? I know that they want to abuse Modi. They want to frame Modi for corruption. But I want to know why they have put the country’s pride at stake for this? Why is national security being put on stake?” (IANS)
