Praising the works of the present BJP government in the state, PM Modi asserted that the sate government has always worked to ensure growth in the region.

After roaring against the opposition in Punjab on January 28, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today reached Goa and addressed a rally in Panaji.

Praising the works of the present BJP government in the state, PM Modi asserted that the sate government has always worked to ensure growth in the region.

Comparing sate’s situation under other party’s control, he claimed that Goa had suffered a state of instability before the BJP rule. The Chief Ministers of the state changed faster than the fixed interval which hampered the growth of Goa. He also focused on the tourism business which has been bringing revenue for the state. He asserted that Tourism in Goa has been a key tool for the state’s revenue and the opponents have failed to do so but the BJP government have uplifted the conditions and will continue in future.

Admiring the present Union Defence Minister of India, Manohar Parrikar (Former Chief Minister of Goa), PM Modi said that this state has given a strong Defence Minister to the country and now the entire world is discussing the Surgical Strike happened back in September 2016.

He termed the opposition as pickpockets of the democracy who have already prepared themselves to counter the present government once the Union budget releases on February 1. He asserted that if the opponents don’t believe the umpire, then why they enter the battlefield?

He asked the people to support and BJP for growth and stated that like lotus blossoms, Goa will blossom too.

Here are the highlights of his speech:

  • Goa has given such a Defence Minister to India who led surgical strikes
  • Some saying PMO pressurised EC for simultaneous elections in Punjab, Goa. If you don’t trust the umpire, then why enter the battlefield?
  • Loktantra ke jebkatre kisi ka bhala nahin chahte
