Nava Punjab Will Be Free Of Debt, Corruption, & Drugs: PM Modi In Jalandhar


Jalandhar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday promised a ‘Nava Punjab’ in his first rally in the poll-bound state since the security scare in Ferozepur last month.

Addressing a rally in Jalandhar, PM Modi said, if given a chance, the NDA will deliver a ‘Nava Punjab’ or new Punjab in the next five years. “I want to dedicate the next five years in building the Nava Punjab which will be free of debt, corruption, and drugs,” he said.

This was Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first rally in Punjab since the security scare last month when his convoy was blocked by protesters on a flyover for 20 minutes.

In Monday’s rally, PM Modi said that the security situation in the state had since not improved. He told the public that his request for security during his visit to a temple was denied by the state government.

“I wanted to offer prayers at Tripurmalini Devi Shaktipeeth after this event but the administration and police said they would not be able to make the arrangements. This is the situation of the government here. But I will surely offer prayers at Shaktipeeth soon,” PM Modi said.

Attacking Congress in his speech, the prime minister said that the incumbent government was being remote-controlled by a family in Delhi. He claimed that governments in all Congress-ruled states were working under orders from the Gandhi family.

“The state governments ruled by Congress are operated by remote control by a family sitting in Delhi. They kept interfering till they interfered so much that they even removed Capt Amarinder Singh,” he said.
