Mandya: While pitching for a double-engine government in poll-bound Karnataka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hit out at Congress by saying that the rival party is busy “dreaming of his death,” but he is busy dreaming of developing Karnataka.
“Congress is busy dreaming of digging Modi’s grave, but I am busy dreaming of developing Karnataka. Congressmen who are dreaming of digging Modi’s grave do not know that Modi’s biggest security shield is the blessings of crores of mothers and sisters of the country,” he said after inaugurating a plethora of infrastructure projects here.
Modi said after the formation of his government in 2014, and since then it has tried to serve the poor with full sincerity and constantly tried to reduce difficulties in the life of the poor.
“In 2014, when you voted for me and gave me an opportunity to serve, then a sensitive government was formed in the country which understands the pain and suffering of the poor. After this, the central government of BJP tried to serve the poor with full sincerity. Constantly tried to reduce the difficulties in the life of the poor,” he said.
Counting out the benefits of a double-engine government, Modi said in the last few years, capital investment of more than Rs 1 lakh crore has been done on the highways in Karnataka. “Infrastructure brings employment, investment, and avenues of income,” he said.
Irrigation projects which were pending for decades in the country are being completed at a fast pace, Modi said.
“In this year’s budget, the government has announced to provide the Upper Bhadra Project with Rs 5,300 crore, providing a permanent solution to irrigation-related problems in the region,” he said.
Modi said the state-of-the-art road infrastructure projects being launched in Karnataka will boost connectivity across the state and strengthen economic growth.
With the projects like Sagarmala and Bharatmala, Karnataka and the country is transforming, he said, adding when the world was struggling with Covid, India increased its infrastructure budget by many times.
“In the last few days, people have been talking about Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway. The people of India want such a modern and splendid expressway across the country. The expressway fills youth with pride,” he said.
Good infrastructure enhances ‘Ease of Living’ and creates new opportunities for progress, Modi said.
