INDIA 'Shakti' remark Rahul

Shakti Worshippers Will Give Befitting Reply To Cong, INDI Alliance: Modi

Criticising Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his ‘Shakti’ remark, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that the Congress and INDIA bloc has challenged the concept of ‘Shakti’ adding that every woman and Shakti worshippers in the country, will teach the opposition alliance a lesson on June 4 (counting day of Lok Sabha polls).

Rahul Gandhi earlier had said that “there is a word ‘Shakti’ in Hinduism. We are fighting against a Shakti”.

Addressing a public meeting in Shivamogga, Prime Minister Modi said, “Yesterday an announcement to destroy Shakti was made from Shivaji Park (in Mumbai). How much it must have hurt the soul of Balasaheb Thackeray. Nari Shakti ka yahi aashirvad mera sabse bada kawach hai (Blessings of Nari Shaki is my biggest security shield). No other government has given so much focus to Nari Shakti since Independence.”

He further stated that an attack on ‘Shakti’ means an attack on daughters and women in the country.

“The people of the INDI alliance want to destroy this Shakti. They hate the increasing shakti of Maa Bharti. An attack on Shakti means an attack on women, daughters, Maa Bharti. INDI alliance and Congress has challenged this Shakti, our daughters, and women of this country will give them a befitting reply on June 4,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi, in his comments made on Sunday in Maharashtra, raised concerns about the operation of EVMs to emphasize the opposition’s struggle against the might of the state.

“There is a word ‘Shakti’ (might) in Hinduism. We are fighting against a Shakti (might of the state). The question is, what is that, Shakti and what does it entail for us? The soul and integrity of EVMs have been traded to the King (Modi). This is a fact. Not just EVMs but every autonomous institution of the country, be it the ED, CBI or Income Tax Department, have traded their spines to the Centre,” Rahul said in an address in Mumbai.

After Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Shakti’ remark sparked outrage, with BJP leaders criticising him for his statement, the Congress has come in support of Rahul Gandhi.

On Monday, Congress leader Pawan Khera launched an indirect attack on the ruling BJP, saying that now this country will not be run by “demonic power” but by “divine power”.

In a post on X, Khera, lashing out at the BJP, said “women were being made to run naked in Manipur, which power was keeping you silent?”

“Ten years ago, when your party was organizing morchas in favour of rapists in Kathua, Unnao, and Hathras, did you not remember the worship of Shakti? When the female wrestler was on the road and Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh was inside your house, which power were they worshipping? This election will be between divine power and demonic power and the victory will be of divine power,” he asserted.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Modi also appealed to the voters to wipe out Congress from Karnataka.

“In these Lok Sabha elections, wipe out Congress completely. You have to come out with this resolution on April 26 and May 7,” he said.

Taking a further dig at the Congress, PM Modi said that “the Congress is a party that will go to any extent to gain power”.

“The British have left, but the Congress has not left the British mentality of divide and rule. Congress first divided the country, divided based on caste, based on community, and divided people on the basis of religion, region and language. To gain power, Congress also divided the country, but still, Congress, with its divisive mentality, is not satisfied with this. Congress has again started playing the dangerous game of dividing the country,” he said.

Referring to Congress leader DK Suresh’s remarks on “separate country for South India”, Prime Minister Modi said, “Now they have also started speaking openly about their intention. Congress MP from Karnataka has given a statement about dividing the country once again. Instead of throwing such an MP out of the party, the Congress party is protecting him. Karnataka will never allow such politics and such conspiracies to succeed.”

However, DK Suresh later issued a clarification, stating that his remarks were just to “bring attention to the discrimination being done in the southern states by the BJP-led Centre”. (ANI)

Rahul Gandhi

Expelled Cong Leader Tears Into Party, Calls Rahul Mad

In a blistering attack on Rahul Gandhi for casting aspersions on ‘
Modi Ki Guarantee
‘ (PM Modi’s guarantees), expelled Congress leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam on Sunday said a person, who has lost his mental bearings, can say anything.

Speaking to ANI on Sunday, Acharya Krishnam also lamented the bulk exits and desertions from the grand old party, saying the Congress has been reduced to an ‘anti-Ram’ and ‘anti-Sanatan’ party, which is why it losing leaders and members to rivals.

On Rahul’s claim that there was ‘no guarantee’ that PM Modi would return to office for a third straight term, the expelled Congress leader said, “See, a person, who has lost his mind, can say anything. As we have seen with children, they often ramble on without making much sense. One need not take the words of a child or a senseless person seriously.”

“The only person responsible for the prevailing ruinous state of the Congress is Rahul Gandhi. As long as Rahul Gandhi is in the Congress, there is no saving the Congress,” he added.

Further hitting out at the Congress, Acharya Krishnam said, “No one wants to stay in party that speaks indecorously of Lord Ram. Many in the Congress have to come realise that they are doomed if they continue to remain in the Congress. This is as clear as daylight. The Congress, through its opposition of Lord Ram, has exposed its political bankruptcy and frustration. It is now an anti-Ram and an anti-Sanatan party. Who will stand with those who stand against Sanatan despite living in the country? Who will stay with them? That explains the current string of exits from the party.”

“Who would want to stay onboard a sinking ship? Congress is a sinking ship. Everyone would jump off a ship that is being steered by Rahul Gandhi. People will jump off and swim or sail to safety. Many more, including senior leaders, will desert the Congress even amidst elections. All his statements and decisions are only driving the Congress towards a bitter end. Those, who once were at his beck and call, are now taking potshots at him. From Karuna Karan’s daughter, Suresh Pachori to Ashok Chavan, many big leaders have left the Congress. Ghulam Nabi Azad, who was also a prominent Congress leader, took the exit door as well. The blood of the Congress still runs in his veins. Why did they all have to leave? It is because of some sycophants who are literally falling over each other to be in the good graces of Rahul-ji,” the expelled leader added, in a no-holds-barred attack on the Wayanad MP.

Coming out in wholesome praise of PM Modi, Acharya Krishnam said, “If Modi had not been the Prime Minister for the last 10 years, West Bengal would have become Bangladesh by now. We are fortunate that Narendra Modi is our Prime Minister. I believe that the people of Bengal are also saddened by the atrocities of the ruling TMC. I can say with full conviction that Narendra Modi will storm back to office by a huge majority. Modi-ji will win, the BJP will win.”

Also tearing into the INDIA bloc, Acharya Krishnam said, “All thieves came together and created a gang. However, they are only stabbing each other in the back.” (ANI)

“See, bundles of money are being recovered from the residences of TMC leaders, look what they have done!

I promise the people of West Bengal– yeh lootne walon ko lautana padega.(People who are looting will have to return it). Modi will not spare them,” said the PM.

We resolved tasks that had been pending for centuries. We fulfilled a dream and a wish going back five centurues by building the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. The country, in general, and Jammu and Kashmir in particular, were rid of Article 370 after nearly seven decades. Also, it took us six decadaes after independence to rename ‘Rajpath’ as ‘Kartavya Path’.

It was our government that fulfilled this long-pending requirement.”

PM Modi further said the BJP workers are fortunate to have witnessed ‘revolutionary changes’ across the country over the last 10 years.

“The BJP workers are fortunate to have witnessed revolutionary changes over the past 10 years of our government. Any country can progress and reach its promised place when the people come to appreciate and cherish its heritage and history.

Modi May Claim Full Credit For Bharat Ratna To Karpoori Thakur: Nitish

Modi May Claim Full Credit For Bharat Ratna To Karpoori Thakur: Nitish

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying the latter might “claim full credit” for conferring the Bharat Ratna on former Bihar Chief Minister Karpoori Thakur.

Addressing a rally organised by the JD(U) on the birth anniversary of the former Bihar CM, Nitish Kumar highlighted his relentless efforts for the highest civilian award for his political mentor.

“Jan Nayak Karpoori Thakur has been conferred with ‘Bharat Ratna’. We had been demanding ‘Bharat Ratna’ for him since 2007 till 2023 from every government including the previous Congress government and the present government But they had not done so. Now, they gave him a ‘Bharat Ratna’. I congratulate the PM and Central government for accepting our demand,” Nitish Kumar said.

Bihar CM said that PM Modi called late leader’s son Ramnath Thakur, who is presently in JD(U), but did not make an effort to make a call to him.

“I was told by Ramnath Thakur, my party colleague and the late leader’s son, that the Prime Minister had called him up after the announcement. The PM has not called me so far. It is possible that he may claim full credit for the move. Be that as it may, I thank the PM and his government for fulfilling a demand I have been raising since I assumed power in Bihar,” Kumar said.

He further said that Karpoori Thakur “never tried to promote” any of his family members since he drew inspiration from late Karpoori Thakur who was known for strong moral values in public life.

“It was also Karpoori Thakur who inspired our commitment to the cause of Other Backward Classes and Extremely Backward Classes,” he added.

Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday announced that the President is pleased to award Bharat Ratna on Karpoori Thakur (posthumously).

Karpoori Thakur was born in 1924 in one of the most backward sections of society, the Nai Samaj. He was a remarkable leader whose political journey was marked by his unwavering commitment to the marginalised sections of society.

He served as the Chief Minister of Bihar and was a key figure in the struggle against social discrimination and inequality. His commitment to affirmative action gave representation and opportunities to the poor, oppressed, exploited and deprived sections of the country. (ANI)

The wait of centuries is over, what next? On this occasion of today, will we bid farewell to the gods and divine spirits who have come to bless us and are watching us? No, not at all. Today I feel with a pure heart that the cycle of time is changing,” he said.

“It is a happy coincidence that our generation has been chosen as the architect of a timeless path. The generation after a thousand years will remember our efforts of nation-building today.That’s why I say – this is the time, this is the right time. From today, from this sacred time, we have to lay the foundation of India for the next thousand years,” he added.

The Prime Minister said devotees of Lord Ram are completely absorbed in this historic moment.

“The devotees of Prabhu Ram, in every corner of the country and the world, are deeply feeling this. Today our Ram has come…After waiting for centuries our Ram has arrived. After centuries of unprecedented patience, countless sacrifices, sacrifices and penance, our Lord Ram has arrived,” he said.

The PM also said that Lord Ram is connected to the soul of India.

“Lord Ram resides in the hearts of Indians. Today, Ayodhya has not only witnessed the Pran Pratishtha of the sacred idol of Prabhu Shri Ram, but also the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ of the unwavering faith in Indian culture manifested in the form of Prabhu Shri Ram. Today, what has happened in Ayodhya is also the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ of human values and the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ of the highest ideals!” he said.

PM Modi also sought forgiveness from Lord Ram for the delay in the construction of the temple.

“Today, I apologise to Lord Ram as something was lacking in our love and penance due to which this work (construction of Ram Temple) was not done for so many years. However, that gap has been bridged today and I am confident that Lord Ram will forgive us,” PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister walked into the temple premises with a silver ‘chattar’ (umbrella) placed on a red folded dupatta.

Wearing a cream-coloured kurta teamed up with a cream dhoti and patka, he took ‘Sankalp’ for the “Pran Pratishtha ceremony” and later moved to the sanctum sanctorum for the rituals.

RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat, Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were also present in the sanctorum during the rituals. Devotees and guests chanted ‘Jai Sri Ram’ during the ceremony. (ANI)
