Will make India third largest economic power, it's Modi's guarantee: PM promises in Varanasi

Varanasi/IBNS/UNI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday reiterated the commitment of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government towards the development of the entire country, including Varanasi, and guaranteed to make India the third biggest economic power in the world in his third tenure.

Addressing the public after launching projects of more than Rs 19,000 crore in Varanasi, the PM said, "There are elections across the country in just a few months from now and Modi has guaranteed the country that in his third innings, he will make India the third largest economic power in the world."

He said, "It is our endeavour that no beneficiary should be deprived of whatever schemes the central government rolled out for the poor and public. That's why the vehicle moving in the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra is being called as the vehicle of Modi's guarantee and it has become a super hit."

"Those who got benefits from the government schemes have gained confidence that their lives will get better. This confidence has increased the confidence of the country that India will become a developed country by 2047," he said.

He said that the yatra gave him and his colleagues an understanding of the power lying within the country.

"This yatra allowed us to witness, understand, observe, and experience the power of the countrymen. Therefore I tell those working in public life that Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra is like a mobile university for us. It gives us a chance to learn," he said.

He said that projects launched today will give impetus to the development of Kashi.

"I am happy that those who used to go abroad earlier are visiting their country today. If tourism increases, development increases. The income of the people of Kashi has increased due to an increase in tourism. The government is continuously working for this."

The PM said that he felt the happiest when the world praised Kashi. "When Kashi develops, UP develops and when UP develops, the country develops," he said.

He flagged off four trains including the second Vande Bharat train from Varanasi to New Delhi on the occasion.

"Earlier, the poor used to make rounds of the government, now the government itself is reaching out to the poor," PM Modi said.

The PM said that along with making living in Kashi easy, the government is also working equally hard to improve the connectivity of the city with other places and increase the income of its residents as tourism in Kashi continues to expand, creating thousands of new employment opportunities.

On the importance of drone technology in agriculture, he said that drones are going to shape the future of India’s agricultural system. "The government has launched NaMo Drone Didi. Under this campaign, women of self-help groups are being given training to operate drones," he said.

While mentioning Banas Dairy Plant, the PM said that its construction is going on at a fast pace in Varanasi and will be completed in the next one to two months. "Banas Dairy is investing Rs 500 crore in Kashi," he said.
