Corrupt leaders want to save dynasties, says PM Modi

The Prime Minister said that the opposition wants a weak government while he is determined to give a strong and decisive government.

Visakhapatnam: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that leaders of the opposition alliance, the Mahagathbandhan, were ‘anti-national’ because they had raised doubts over the Pulwama terror attack.

He said that the opposition wants a weak government while he is determined to give a strong and decisive government.

“The Mahamilavat alliance wants a majboor government which will dance to their tunes and not a mazboot government which can work for people’s interest. These corrupt people are coming together to remove Modi to save the corrupt and dynasties as they are not able to approve of the good work by NDA government. They want to remove Modi because he is taking strict and bold decisions. They want to remove Modi because New India’s culture and policy both are changing. They want to remove Modi because he is bringing about a positive change in the lives of the poor, middle class and the marginalised sections,” Mr Modi said.

He further said that “If India has strong government we will have both Jai Jawan and Jai Kisan. It is due to our efforts of the PM-KISAN that 12 crore farmers will be getting '75,000 crore every year. This is just the beginning.”

India, he said, has 7,500 km of coastline and the BJP has started a project like Sagarmala with the vision of making Ports for Prosperity. “Through blue revolution, we are empowering our fishermen by giving them training, equipment, loans, technology-based support and implements to bring prosperity to them,” he said.

We have started a new department for fisheries at the Centre with a budget of Rs 7,500 crore to aid fisherman. With the support of ISRO and its technology, fishermen are benefiting more in identifying natural calamities etc," he said.

He claimed that the honest taxpayer's money is being used efficiently, running great projects like Aayushman Bharat, which gives Rs 5 lakh cover for medical expenses of 50 crore poor Indians

"All these welfare and development schemes are powered by your vote. The power behind all this development India achieved is your vote, not Modi. First time in history of India we have undertaken tax reform making income under Rs 5 lakh completely free of tax for benefiting the middle class. We have slashed GST for under-construction properties from 12 per cent to 5 per cent. For affordable housing, the tax levied will be only one per cent. On one hand, we are punishing the dishonest and corrupt and on the other we are rewarding the honest by providing them exemption in the income tax."

Mr Modi as usual began the speech in Telugu, invoking a popular deity in this part of the state, Lord Varaha Lakshmi Nrasimha Swamy, and also remembered historic figures from the port city such as Alluri Seetaramaraju, and Tenneti Viswanatham.
