Pakistan was expecting surgical strike, we did air strikes, they woke up at 5 and cried “Modi Ne Maara”: PM Modi in Noida

PM Modi also laid the foundation for two thermal power plants via video conferencing, one in Buxar and one in Bulanshahr. He also laid the foundation for the upcoming airport in Jewar, proposed to be India's largest airport.

Prime Minister Modi today reached Uttar Pradesh’s Noida and laid the foundation for various projects including the extension of Delhi’s Blue Line, now connecting Noida City Centre with the Noida Electronics City. It will help commuters traveling in Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s Blue Line and Noida Metro Rail Corporation’s Aqua Line that connects Noida and Greater Noida.

He also laid the foundation for 1,320 MW Super Thermal Plant at Bulandshahar’s Khurja a thermal plant in Bihar’s Buxar through video conferencing.

PM Modi started his address to people of Noida and Buxar, through video conferencing, by re-telling about the plight that Noida and Greater Noida used to face, during the previous regime. Government money loot, loopholes in issuing of tenders, scams in land allocations, PM Modi said these were problems that had plagued both places. Now, both cities are known for new employment opportunities and are getting transformed into Make In India hub, PM Modi said.

“Today India is the second largest manufacturer of mobile phones in the world. In this achievement, Noida has a very great contribution. Prior to my government, India only had 2 mobile manufacturing factories. Now there are around 125 factories and many of them are situated here” PM Modi stated at the start of his address. He also added that Noida is also turning into a magnet for many other electronics manufacturing companies.

PM Modi then talked about the programmes that he launched today, and how they are going to ease the lives of people of Noida. He said he has dedicated India’s biggest airport to Jewar, which when fully operational will save people of Noida from traveling to Delhi to take air flights. In the coming weeks, he said, through UDAN scheme will enable people of Bareily to have air access. Talking about his government’s flagship programme UDAN, PM Modi said, that it has enabled about 120 tier-2 and tier-3 cities, to connect to each other by airways.

After UDAN scheme, PM Modi continued his address about the power infrastructure in India and how it has changed since the coming of Modi government. The Khurja powerplant, according to PM Modi, will help provide electricity to states like Delhi, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. The project will incur the cost of around Rs 1200 crore, PM said.

The PM also addressed people of Buxar, Bihar where he has inaugurated the 1320 MW Thermal Power Plant. PM Modi said that this thermal power plant is part of an initiative to turn eastern India into the country’s engine, as it will help provide electricity to other eastern states.

PM Modi said that both plants will not only provide electricity to the people but they will also fulfill the needs of several industries in these areas.

“We can not forget the days when we used to hear the news that our power plants only have availability of coal for 2-3 days more. Those were days of weak power infrastructure when grids used to fail, sliding states into darkness for days. It was also a matter of national embarrassment,” PM Modi said.

He also added that his government emphasizes on four things in the power sector, production, transmission, distribution, and connection. He also added that his government is also working on projects based on alternative energies like solar energy, tidal energy, coal energy, and nuclear energy. He added that by 2022, his government has set a target to provide 175 GW of clean energy, out of which, a production level of 75 GW has already been reached.

PM Modi, slamming the Congress, said that during 65 years of their rule they were only able to create a power infrastructure capable of producing 2.5 lakh MW. But, his government, in the last 5 year alone, has created a power infrastructure capable of producing 1 lakh MW.

PM Modi also said that 18,000 villages which had not seen electricity since independence, obtained it during the BJP-government’s tenure. PM Modi added that with the help of Deen Dayal Gram Jyoti Yojna for the villages and Integrated Power Development Scheme for the urban area, his government was able to make the transmission network of the country, stronger.

He also talked about his flagship programme, Saubhagya scheme which helped 2.5 crore households in the country gain access to electricity. He also asserted that after his government came to power, it started promoting electrical appliances which attract less electricity bill like the LED bulb. He said before his efforts, LED bulbs used to cost Rs 300-350 but now they cost a mere Rs 40-50. He said this only could be done because of the elimination of middle-men.

“Now you tell, the people’s shops that I have shut will abuse me or not. The middle-man who used to loot people will attack me or not” PM Modi asked the crowd. He also told people about the new Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Institute of Archaeology in Greater Noida, which will help scholars around country and world discover about our ancient history.

“I got the opportunity to inaugurate Kashi Vishnath Dham. I was surprised to see so many houses surrounding the holy site”, PM Modi said. He added that the Archaeological Survey of India had unearthed many temples beneath the houses. PM Modi said that even this initiative to uncover our lost heritage has met with politics by people who are ignorant of our history and know only personal gains.

PM Modi added that during the previous regime some loyalists used to get houses and farmhouses near ASI sites, without any problem.

Attacking the opposition parties for trying to spread misinformation regarding India’s air strikes and the previous surgical strike, PM said, “After the Pulwama attack, we did something we had never done. We entered into their territory and conducted air strikes,”. He added, “Before we had informed the nation, Pakistan itself had started crying by 5 in the morning.

“Our enemies were convinced that no matter how many times they inflict India with attacks, it will never respond,” said PM Modi. He then slammed previous ‘remote-controlled’ government for this.

“They did nothing after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, even though air force was ready,” PM Modi said. He then added to list attacks like 2013 Hyderabad bomb blast, 2010 Pune Bakery blasts, Varanasi bomb blast in 2011 to which previous regimes never responded. He said that those government had tied the hands of our forces.

Concluding his speech, PM Modi asked people to be wary of “Tukde-Tukde gang”, who run Pakistan’s propaganda day-and-night. He said that after India conducted air-strikes these gangs got involved in the peddling of Pakistani propaganda to confuse people. He also slammed politicians giving statements that make Pakistan happy.
