BJP making up for failures of past governments: PM Modi in Himachal Pradesh | India News

KULLU: BJP is rapidly making up for lost time in terms of bringing to citizens all the perks of development that successive governments at the Centre and the states had denied them, PM Narendra Modi declared on Thursday while flagging off the inaugural run of the Vande Bharat Express from Amb Andaura in poll-bound Himachal Pradesh’s Una to New Delhi.
“Our government is fulfilling the aspirations of 21st century India. New India is overcoming challenges of the past and growing at a scorching pace,” PM Modi said, also inaugurating the Indian Institute of Information Technology in Una and starting a slew of projects in the Una-Chamba beltincluding a Rs 1,900-crore bulk drug park in Haroli.
PM Modi said Himachal being chosen as one of only three states in the country to get a bulk drug park was a “momentous” decision. “Now that raw materials for manufacture of medicines will be produced right here in this hill state, India’s dependence on other nations for this will decrease significantly. Bulk drug parks will give further strength to the government’s campaign to provide quality and affordable medical care to all.”
At Una’s Indira Gandhi Stadium, PM Modi’s speech was laced with a litany of alleged Congress failures, compared to what he said were the quantum benefits of a double-engine government in the state and at the Centre.
“Earlier generations in Himachal didn’t even see a train. Today, the state has one of the most advanced trains running from here,” he said, adding the government was working on three new rail projects.
PM Modi said it was a shame that not one of the previous non-BJP governments paid heed to the needs and aspirations of citizens. “We are not only filling the gulf in development but also building strong pillars for the future. Rural roads are being constructed at double the speed than before, and broadband connectivity is being taken to gram panchayats.”
Terming the state “blessed” with bountiful attributes, the PM said his government was focused on providing all the infrastructure and encouragement needed for the state to break out of the shackles of negligence by erstwhile governments.
In the afternoon, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Chamba to lay the foundation of two hydropower projects – the 48MW Chanju-III hydro-electric project and the 30MW Deothal Chanju scheme – and launch Phase III of the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana.
Speaking at the Chaugan ground, the PM said the belief that “pahad ka paani aur pahad ki jawani pahad ke kaam nahin aati (the hills don’t benefit from its youth and sources of water” was changing. “Now, the youth of hills will play an active part in the development of the area,” he said.
