Govt Taking Steps to Uproot Corruption, Middlemen: PM Modi

Rajnath Singh said the journey from "today's India" to "new India" has already begun and the momentum for it was built in three years by Modi government, adding that now it has to be transformed into a mass movement. He said that 9 crore farmers have been given Mudra Cards while 2.5 crore households have been provided subsidised LPG connections.

Speaking more about the micro, small and medium enterprises, he said, "Loans worth more than Rs 8 crore have been sanctioned without guarantee to the youth for self-employment".

Prime Minister Modi said that fresh sources of black money are also being unearthed and stopped. India was freed from the British rule on this date in 1947 after a prolonged struggle by the people of the nation.

Modi, who devoted biggest chunk of his almost an hour long speech to black money, said that out of the money deposited in banks post note ban, over Rs 1.75 lakh crore is under scrutiny. Modi said: "Violence in the name of "Astha" is not something to be happy about, it will not be accepted in India".

Accordingly, she urged Fadnavis - who also holds the Home portfolio - to take cognisance and register a case of "treason" and other relevant sections against Modi.

"The PM did not mention that India today has the highest rate of unemployment it has had in the last eight years", he said.

"The result of this has been that this year, the new tax payers (filing returns) has more than doubled to 56 lakh". He said, "The time has come to change this".

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's unfurling the Indian tricolour at a government-aided school in Kerala's capital Thiruvananthapuram even after being told by authorities that political personalities are not allowed to do so triggered a row. "It's about time that the Prime Minister starts acting and operating like a Prime Minister". He aims for the development by 2022, and that can be achieved only by the support of citizens of India.

"The Kashmir Valley has been in turmoil and the use of force is the only distinctive approach of the Centre to deal with the unrest among the people", it said. "Six groups of 30 CEOs each have been made to make presentations in a bid to transform India", said a senior official.

At the same, he appealed to the militants to join the mainstream.

The message was clear, there won't be any compromise with terrorism.
