Hours after the Indian men’s hockey team won their first Olympic medal in 40 years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to the victory to target opposition parties, saying while the country’s youths were scoring goals on field, some with selfish political interests were scoring self-goals and disrespecting Parliament. Spare a few minutes to know more about it.
August 5 as a day of achievement
Addressing beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Gareeb Kalyan Anna Yojna (PM-GKAY) from Uttar Pradesh through video conferencing, the Prime Minister also termed August 5 as a date of achievements – abrogation of Article 370 in 2019, laying of foundation stone for Ram Temple in Ayodhya in 2020 and Thursday’s Olympic medal in hockey.
“It was August 5 when two years ago the country strengthened the feeling of One India-Better India by removing Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. It was the same August 5 when last year we took our first step towards a grand Ram Temple. The work of Ram Temple is going on at great speed in Ayodhya. Also today, in the Olympic field, the youths of India took a big leap… in hockey. This golden moment came back after four decades,” he said.
“On one hand, our country is scoring goal after goal of victory, and on the other, some people, due to political self-interest, are doing things which make it seem that they are scoring self-goals.”
“These people have no interest in what the country wants, what he country is achieving and how the country is changing. They are wasting time and hurting feelings of the country. They are continuously disrespecting Parliament… The country is involved in fighting a massive pandemic, but they are competing to find ways to stop public welfare work,” he said, targeting the Opposition for disrupting Parliament over the Pegasus issue.
The country will not be held hostage by such selfish politics, Modi said, adding that some are trying to stop Parliament, but the people will not let them do that.
Country is making rapid progress
He said the country is progressing rapidly on every front, as he listed India’s performance at the Olympics, the recently achieved 50-crore Covid vaccination mark, GST collection figures, agricultural exports, the e-RUPI initiative and the launch of trials of indigenously built aircraft carrier Vikrant.
Accepting that there is a major challenge of inflation at a time when the entire world is troubled, he assured the poor and middle-class that efforts were being made and inflation will be kept in check.
Modi lauded Yogi
Praising Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who participated in the event from Ayodhya, as both Yogi and Karmayogi, Modi said: “For the first time in the history of UP, there is fear in the mind of criminals and those oppressing poor and threatening the weak. The system which was once addicted to corruption and nepotism is now changing.”
Adityanath, who was in Ayodhya for the first anniversary of the bhoomi pujan of the Ram Temple, said the Prime Minister’s dream of a new Ayodhya is being realised.
