Union Defence Minister, Sh. Rajnath Singh said that the promises made to the people of the country since the time of Jan Sangh have been fulfilled, including removal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, construction of Ram Mandir and equal Citizenship.
The Defence Minister was addressing the people after dedicating Panch Kamal, the state office of Haryana Janta Party near Mansa Devi today.
He said that the Bharatiya Janata Party is not using politics to get power. Its focus is to uplift the society and the country. In the last eight years, Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi has uplifted the condition of the country which has constructively changed the direction of the politics. Today no one can allege that any scam has taken place in the country.
Appreciating the Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal, Sh. Rajnath Singh said that the farmers are being paid by the state government within 72 hours after procurement of the crops. Apart from this, Haryana is only state in the country to procure maximum 14 crops at the Minimum Support Price. He said that the number of Government jobs given in the last eight years were not given in the last 15 years in Haryana. Some people are trying to mislead the people by politicising the small issues.
Interacting with the workers, Sh. Rajnath Singh said that people should be proud to work as workers of Bharatiya Janata Party. He said that when he was preparing the party’s election manifesto in 2014 and 2019, Sh. Narendra Modi had asked not make any such promise in the manifesto, which cannot be fulfilled and we kept the public promises.
Sh. Rajnath Singh said that as Defence Minister, he is moving towards making India self-reliant. A list of 310 items of Army goods has been prepared, which will be manufactured in India and need not to be imported from other countries of the world and he has done this after getting inspiration from Prime Minister’s make in India campaign. Today foreign investors are looking forward to invest in India in the field of defence manufacturing. He said that India had been importing goods worth Rs 900 crore for the army from other countries, but now India is exporting goods worth Rs 13,000 crore to other countries.
Sh. Rajnath said that India’s economy is the fastest growing economy in the world. He said that young startups have also shown great interest towards the start-up scheme launched in the field of IT for the youth.
