“People in the country were very disappointed during the last 10 years. But after Modi became Prime Minister, within four months, people not just in the country but in the entire world have regained confidence in India’s ability to lead the world,” Shah said addressing the ‘Karyakarta Sankalp Adhiveshan’ programme ahead of the local bodies polls in Madhya Pradesh.
The programmes launched by Modi Government in the sphere of security, ‘Make in India’, ‘Jan Dhan Yojna’, ‘Shramev Jayate’ and ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ among others are examples of his leadership, he said.
“Though after BJP’s historic victory in the Lok Sabha polls, people have accepted Modi as their leader, some of them raised doubts after a few by-poll results. But they were also silenced by BJP’s spectacular performance in Maharashtra and Haryana, where the party came to power for the first time in history,” he said.
“After the victory in Maharashtra and Haryana, where the BJP had decided to contest alone, Modi has made a place for himself in the people’s hearts,” he said.
Shah praised BJP’s Madhya Pradesh unit which was nurtured by stalwarts like Kushabhau Thakre and late Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia.
“Since the days of Jansangh, BJP’s Madhya Pradesh unit has excelled and is one of the strongest party units in the country,” he said.
Wherever BJP came to power in the country, it worked for the poor and backward classes and ensured benefits reached even the last man in the society. This resulted in its repeated victory in states like Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Goa among others, he said.
Praising Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Shah said his government has transformed the state by working in the areas of road, power and water.
He also lauded the state government for achieving 24.99 per cent agricultural growth and over 10 per cent GDP.
Chouhan has not only ensured that Madhya Pradesh came out of the BIMARU category, but now it is fast becoming a welfare state by implementing a large number of developmental schemes, the BJP president said.
He also lauded the state for having perfect coordination between the government and the party organisation.
