For the purpose of welcoming Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, people came putting on attires of various states of the country. Ramlila Maidam became insufficient to accommodate large number of people where thousands of people raised slogan Modi Hai To Mumkin Hai.
Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said that I am very happy that the opportunity of bringing new dawn in the lives of more than 40 lakh people of Delhi came to me and BJP. Many-many congratulations for getting the ownership rights of your houses and land which is your greatest asset and also complete right through Pradhan Mantri Uday Yojana. Even after decades of independence a large part of the population of Delhi had go through uncertainty, fear, worry, fraud and false promises. The lives of this large population of Delhi remained confined to the terms like illegal, unauthorized, JJ clusters, sealing, bulldozer and cut off dates. These people were never honest in providing permanent solutions to the people of Delhi and ending their worries. The condition was such that previous governments demanded extension of time till 2021 for collecting small information, fixing boundaries etc in view of their slow speed, we decided to take over this work and in March this year and we started work on it and got the Bill passed connected with the unauthorized colonies in Loksabha and Rajyasabha. With the help of technology, the work of fixing boundaries of more than 1700 colonies has been completed. Not only this, the maps of more than 1200 colonies has been uploaded on the portal. The decision of regularizing theses colonies is not only of conferring rights of land and houses but it also to boost business and trade in Delhi.
Prime Minister said that it is not in our nature, culture or politics to keep the problems pending. The people who had assured of regularizing the houses of the people have given more than two thousand big bungalows to near and dear ones. They did not do anything for the people of Delhi. On the one hand we got vacated two thousand bungalows from VIP and on the other conferred rights to more that 40 lakh poor and middle class people. The poor people are VIP for us it the priority of central government to make their lives convenient, increase connectivity. In spite of the obstructions we have expended the metro rail during the last five years. Before 2014 the expansions of Delhi Metro was 14 km per year now it is 25 km per year. During the last five years 116 km new lines have become operational in Delhi and work on 70 km is going on. This could have been completed earlier if the state government did not put hindrances. Hence I say that the people who play politics in the name of people do not understand their problem.
Shri Modi also said that the people who were making excuses in the name of buses have paralyzed the public transport in Delhi. We have always tried to provide facilities to the commuters of Delhi. Peripheral express way has been completed around Delhi which was pending since year. Now 30-40 thousands trucks do not enter Delhi and the traffic and pollution has also reduced. Hundreds of new CNG stations have been opened. 50 percent of the industry is working on PNG. Apart from this, thousands of brick kilns have to be connected with new technology or even helped the surrounding states regarding the stubble, we have worked with promptness. The present government of Delhi is not even concerned about the biggest problem here. This is the problem of water. Delhi Government claims that clean water is available everywhere in Delhi, but the truth is that today the maximum numbers of water purifier i.e. water purifying machine is sold in the country. Those who cannot install water purifiers are either forced to buy a water bottle or they are forced to use polluted water. In most places, there is no water either from the tap and people do not believe in the water that comes. It is necessary to work on the mission mode to get Delhi out of such situations. For this, cooperation is necessary, but those who consider the people of Delhi as their slaves and the owners of Delhi, cannot understand this. Is this not an insult to the people of Delhi?
Prime Minister said that in the recently concluded session of Parliament, not only the Bill related to the colonies of Delhi but the second important Bill, the Citizenship Amendment Bill have been passed, but after the passing of this bill some political parties started spreading various rumours. I want to know from them:
When we did the work of legitimizing hundreds of colonies of Delhi, then did we asked someone what is your religion, whom you have faith, which party are you supporting? -No.
When we gave free gas connections to more than 8 crore families under the Ujjwala Yojana, did we ask for their religion? Asked their caste? No.
In the last five years, our government has given houses to more than 15 million poor people. We did not asked anyone what is your religion.-No.
The world’s largest health assurance scheme ‘Ayushman Bharat’ scheme is running in India today. This scheme has ensured more than 50 crore poor people, free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh. Due to political interest, Delhi government did not implement Ayushman Bharat Yojana in Delhi. Those states where this scheme has been implemented, about 70 lakh patients have been treated free in the hospital. Among its beneficiaries are Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians. Did we see religion in it?-No.
I want to know from the Congress, its allies and the parties that do politics of dividing the country like that when we have not discriminated against any people of the country in any scheme, then why such false allegations, why conspiracy to discredit India worldwide? These people have not only tried to push Delhi but also many cities of the country into an atmosphere of chaos and fear, they have conspired. They make statements to incite violence and hatred, but do not speak anything to establish peace. If they do not take the initiative to establish peace, it means that they are silently supporting violence.
