During the release of BJP’s manifesto, PM Modi had mentioned that the states like Rajasthan and Gujarat have been facing water problems for decades and they have managed to find alternatives to battle the issue. However, there are several states, like Tamil Nadu, which have been exposed to the problem in recent past and thus need a better, effective water resource utilisation roadmap.

Repeating his promise today, PM Modi assured the people of Ramanathapuram that there will be separate ministry called ‘Jal Shakti’ in the new Modi government. He stated that the new ministry will be dedicated to water conservation and resource utilisation.

The BJP manifesto promises that the new government will also focus on getting pipe water to every household in the country.

Addressing the public in Tamil Nadu, PM Modi stated that thousands of people in Tamil Nadu depend on the sea for their livelihoods. He mentioned the fishing communities and stated that their hardworking Chowkidar is dedicated to their development and has been able to take several path-breaking decisions for their welfare.

PM Modi also mentioned that his government has seen to it that over 1900  fishermen have been released by Sri Lanka after the Modi government’s intervention. He added that some of those brought back were even facing death sentences. He added that a new ministry of fisheries will also be formed. The facilities of the Kisan Credit Card has already been extended to fishermen under the Modi government.

PM Modi stated that fishermen are benefitting from technology. The NAVIK technology developed by ISRO provides navigation and safety information to fishermen in their own language. Work on the Mukkayyur fishing harbor and Pampuhar harbor at Nagapattinam is underway at a record pace.

PM Modi also highlighted the infrastructure and tourism development projects undertaken in the area. He stated that his government is working on the doubling of the railway tracks between Rameshwaram and Dhanushkodi. He added that the 100-year-old iconic Pamban bridge will soon be transformed into a state of the art modern bridge.

Speaking to the people of Ramanathapuram, PM Modi reminisced about former president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. PM Modi stated that Dr. Kalam had many dreams for India and it is our duty to fulfill those dreams so we can take India to new heights of glory.

PM Modi also stated that the Congress, leftists and the Muslim League have been playing a very dangerous game regarding the Sabarimala Temple. They have used brute force to strike at the root of faith and expression. He assured the people that till BJP is there, no one will be able to destroy our faith and culture.

PM Modi also attacked Congress for its years of abusing power and corruption. He told people that if they go to Delhi, they will see that prime real estate has been used for building memorials for the members of one family. It is as if no other person has ever contributed to India except that one family. PM Modi stated that his government believes every Indian has contributed to the building of our nation in his/her own way.
