@BJP4India
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Congress ruined the country in 55 years, while the BJP fulfilled the aspirations of the poor with new resolve.

Addressing a public rally at Raigarh in Chhattisgarh, Prime Minister called the Mahagathbandhan of the opposition a mahamilavat.

Prime Minister said Congress used the plank of farm loan waivers to benefit middle-men and the corrupt. Mr Modi said the BJP empowered the poor to fight poverty. 

Prime Minister said BJP government has included a scheme in budget 2019 ‘PM kisan samman nidhi yojna’. This scheme is not a poll plank.

BJP’s scheme will  benefit the farmers every year. He said that after the results of recently held state assembly elections, his government's resolve to work for the marginalised has strengthened. He said that after coming to power, Congress excluded Chhattisgarh from Modi care. 
 
Prime Minister said that BJP is expanding all over India. He said the Government keeps coming and going, but the resolve to raise the life of normal humans remains unchanged.

Union Minister of state for Steel Vishnudeo Sai and other senior BJP leaders were also present. BJP workers and people from Raigarh and neighbouring district attended the meeting.

Earlier today, Prime Minister reached state capital Raipur where he was welcomed by state cabinet minister Dr Shiv Kumar Deharia. Later he flew to Raigarh by a helicopter.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a day long visit to Chhattisgarh and West Bengal today.

In Jalpaigudi district of West Bengal, Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the four laning of the 41.7 KM long Falakata-Salsalabari section of NH -31. It will be constructed at a cost of over 1900 crore rupees.

The project will reduce the distance from Salsalabari and Alipurduar to Siliguri by nearly 50 kilometre. Prime Minister will also inaugurate New Circuit bench of Calcutta High Court at Jalpaiguri.
