Celebrating one year of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Himachal Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public Jan Aabhar Rally in Dharamshala. PM Modi released a document titled ‘Imaandar Prayaas Ka, Ek Saal Vikas Ka’, highlighting achievements of the state government in the last one year.

PM Modi congratulated Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur and his government for various initiatives that have been taken by his government in last one year. In his speech, he called Himachal Pradesh as the land of brave soldiers who were ever ready to make supreme sacrifices at the border.

“Himachal Pradesh is like my home. I worked here for several years for the party’s organisational work. I have worked here, learnt a lot travelling through the state. I felt happy seeing those I worked with becoming front-line leaders,” PM Modi said in Dharamshala.

Praising Kangra’s local food cuisines and fresh crops, PM Modi said, “When I used to work here in Himachal, I always felt how this brilliant crop gets destroyed even before it reaches the market.”

 

PM Modi added that the Himachal Pradesh received only Rs.21,000 crore during the previous government and it has received Rs.72,000 crore after BJP government came to power at the centre. PM Modi said he has been given a chance to serve the people of Himachal and the increase in allocation of Rs.50,000 crore was possible because the Government of India believes that Himachal Pradesh government uses the funds judiciously for the development of the state.

PM Modi also said that infrastructure projects worth Rs.26,000 crore are under progress at various stages of development in the state. He added that Indian Railways has changed the coaches of Kalka-Shimla railway to add transparent roofs to enhance the tourists’ experience. The transformation of Himachal tourism and transportation are extremely vital, said the Prime Minister.

Speaking about the One Rank One Pension scheme, PM Modi said that country’s soldiers were demanding for one rank one pension scheme for the last 40 years, but the previous government fooled our soldiers and allocated only Rs.500 crore.

“When we came to power, I called for the file and officers were left stunned. There was nothing. We realised there was Rs.12,000 crore required for it. It’s difficult for govt to take out Rs.12,000 crore in one go. I called soldiers, asked them that I’ll give it in 4-5 instalments. Today I am happy, we gave it in four instalments and my soldiers have received the money,” said the Prime Minister.

He further accused the Congress party of acting likewise with the farmers by promising loan waivers before the polls but failed to do after it won the elections. “These people (opposition) are doing the same with farmers. In Punjab, don’t know how many promises were made to waive off farmers loans before polls, not even a penny has been given till date,” PM Modi slammed the opposition.

PM Modi lauded the efforts of Himachal Pradesh government initiatives to build ‘home stays’ venture, saying there are more than 80,000 homestays and resorts registered online.

BJP president Amit Shah, Himachal Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, Union Health Minister J P Nadda, BJP state in charge Mangal Pandey, BJP state president Satpal Singh, BLP veteran Shanta Kumar were all present in Dharmashala to celebrate the first year anniversary of the Himachal government.
