PM Modi is set to launch and lay the foundation stone for development projects worth about Rs 7,000 crore in Rajasthan and around Rs 19,260 crore in Madhya Pradesh

Ahead of the Assembly elections scheduled later this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to amp up the Bharatiya Janata Party’s poll pitch in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh on Monday. The Prime Minister is set to visit Chittorgarh in Rajasthan and Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh today, where he will launch multiple development projects.

As per the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), he will launch and lay the foundation stone for development projects worth about Rs 7,000 crore in Rajasthan and around Rs 19,260 crore in Madhya Pradesh.

PM Modi’s Rajasthan Visit

While in Chittorgarh, PM Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the Mehsana-Bathinda-Gurdaspur gas pipeline, built at a cost of Rs 4,500 crore in yet another step to promote a gas-based economy.

He will also inaugurate Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited’s (HPCL) LPG plant in Abu Road. This plant will bottle and distribute 86 lakh cylinders per annum, resulting in a net reduction in running trucks carrying the cylinders by around 0.75 million kilometers annually, and will help to cut down about 0.5 million tons of CO2 emission per annum, according to PMO.

Among the other projects, PM Modi is set to throw open a four-lane road on NH-12 (new NH-52) on the Darah-Jhalawar-Teendhar section, which has been constructed at a cost of more than Rs 1,480 crore. The road has been needed to ease the transportation of the produce of mines from the Kota and Jhalawar districts.

Foundation stones for constructing and widening the railway overbridge from two lanes to four in Sawai Madhopur will also be laid. Further, PM Modi will also inaugurate several railway projects, tourism facilities, and a permanent campus of the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Kota.

PM Modi’s Madhya Pradesh Visit

In MP, PM Modi will visit Gwalior, the stronghold of BJP leaders and Union Ministers Jyotiraditya Scindia and Narendra Singh Tomar. BJP’s performance was not very satisfactory in the Gwalior-Chambal region in the 2018 assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh.

While in Gwalior, PM Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the Delhi-Vadodara Expressway, which has been developed at a cost of about Rs 11,895 crore. He will also lay the foundation stone for five different road projects worth over Rs 1,880 crore.

He is also set to initiate the ‘grih pravesh’ ceremony of over 2.2 lakh homes built under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Gramin. PM Modi will also inaugurate the houses constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Urban at a cost of about Rs 140 crore.

As per the PMO, Modi will lay the foundation stone of Jal Jeevan Mission projects worth over Rs 1,530 crore in Gwalior and Sheopur districts. These projects will together benefit more than 720 villages in the region.

He will also lay the foundation stone of nine health centres under the Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission and inaugurate and launch several other projects.

Assembly Elections In MP and Rajasthan

The Prime Minister’s official programmes come ahead of the possible announcement of assembly elections soon in five states. Assembly polls in both Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are expected to be held in November-December.

Lok Sabha Polls Will Be Dynastic Politics & Corruption Versus Development Fight: Nadda

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda has said the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will be a battle between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Addressing party workers from Mumbai’s western suburbs during his visit to the metropolis on Wednesday, Nadda said under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, India is well on its way to become the third largest economy in the world from fifth now.

Attacking anti-BJP opposition parties, he alleged that they were either dynastic or steeped in corruption.

“You have to reach out to voters and seek their support for a fresh mandate (for BJP at the Centre). First-time voters in the last ten years have seen only development and not corruption like previous governments,” Nadda asserted, referring to the decade-long rule of the Modi administration that started in 2014.

He said the Lok Sabha elections, likely to be held in April-May, will be a fight between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Dynastic politics and corruption will lead to destruction, Nadda said and highlighted the BJP’s development agenda.

Earlier in the day, Nadda met BJP office-bearers from all the 36 assembly constituencies in Mumbai besides party MPs and MLAs from the metropolis.

In his address, Nadda asked BJP leaders from Mumbai to ensure the party ideology reaches the last person in society and urged them to give a befitting reply to opposition attacks on the saffron outfit and its government.

He advised BJP leaders to extensively use social media and seek support of prominent personalities on issues of public interest.

Nadda also chaired the Election Management Committee’s meetings for all the six Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai as part of preparations for the national polls.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP and its then-ally, the undivided Shiv Sena, won three seats each in Mumbai. In the Maharashtra assembly polls held in October that year, the BJP won 16 of the 36 seats in the city, while 14 were bagged by the Sena.

The state, where the BJP is in power in alliance with the Shiv Sena led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the Ajit Pawar-headed NCP, has a 288-member legislative assembly.

BJP to Release Documentary on Alleged Atrocities Against Women in West Bengal’s Sandeshkhali

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections

The BJP is set to release a documentary on Sandeshkhali on Thursday with the party intensifying its attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government over the alleged incidents of atrocities and sexual assault on women there.

The “exclusive” documentary titled ‘The Sandeshkhali Socker – The Big Reveal’ will be released Thursday morning at 9 am, the BJP said in post on X, asking Banerjee in Bangla, “Didi ke bolo aaro koto ‘Sandeshkhali’ (Tell didi how many more Sandeshkhali like incidents)”.

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

The riverine Sandeshkhali area — situated on the borders of the Sunderbans, about 100 kilometres from Kolkata — has been witnessing protests after the local women accused absconding Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sheikh Shahjahan and his supporters of land grab and sexual assault under coercion.

Interestingly, ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ is a campaign launched by the TMC after the 2019 Lok Sabha polls to provide a platform for the people of West Bengal to directly raise their concerns or lodge complaints with Chief Minister Banerjee.

The TMC’s move was reportedly aimed at countering the BJP in the state.
