Himachal has the potential to be a leading small state : PM Modi


Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji, addressed the ‘Parivartan Rally’ organized in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, today. Before this, he inaugurated three hydroelectric projects of 1,732 MW capacity in the premises of the Vallabh College, dedicating these to the nation.

The salient points of PM’s speech are as follows :

  • Himachal Pradesh has the potential to be a leading small state in development. Apart from electricity, it has a potential for tourism
    Himachal Pradesh is a land of gods (Devbhoomi) and also a land of the brave (Veerabhoomi)
  • There is hardly a family in Himachal Pradesh that does not have a son deployed on the international border as an Indian soldier; every family here has followed a tradition of patriotism for generations
  • If one goes through the list of Param Vir Chakra awardees, Himachal Pradesh stands tall with soldiers from the state. I salute the brave jawans of the Indian Army
  • The whole country is talking of the might of the Indian Army today
  • We are as proud of the veteran soldiers who have inspired the upcoming generations as we are of the soldiers still serving the country along the borders
  • During the campaign for the Lok Sabha election, I had chosen this venue for a rally in which I spoke of the One Rank One Pension scheme. With humility I submit today that I have tried to fulfil the promise I had made to you
  • Rs 21,000 crore was allocated to Himachal Pradesh by the XIVth Finance Commission whereas we made the XVth Finance Commission allocate Rs 72,000 crore to the state
  • Our chief ministers dedicated their lives to building roads and water supply network for Himachal Pradesh while the current one seems to have wasted himself in serving himself:
  • The cost to build the Koldam Dam project on Sutlej has risen from Rs 34 crore to Rs 2,100 crore due to the height of irresponsibility
  • Since we came to power, we have ordered to start work on Bhanupuri Bilaspur rail line project, a victim of political negligence from past 10 years
  • As and when the people of Himachal Pradesh gave us an opportunity to serve them, we have worked to meet their expectations
  • The BJP government at the Centre is committed to the welfare of farmers
