Every vote cast for the “lotus” will enhance strength: PM Modi writes to people of Himachal Pradesh
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday penned an open letter to the electorate of the state of Himachal Pradesh ahead of Assembly polls, in which he urged them to script history by re-electing the BJP. PM Modi said that every vote cast for the “lotus” will enhance his strength.
Himachal Pradesh will go to polls in a single phase on November 12 and results will be announced on December 12.
Prime Minister said in his letter, which is written in Hindi, “I have full faith that like last time this time too you will all bless the BJP. Every vote you cast in favor of the lotus (BJP’s poll symbol) will enhance my strength.”
PM Modi appealed to voters to let the development journey of the state continue, saying he wants the development campaign in the state to touch the “heights of the skies like the peaks of the Himalayas”.
Taking a jibe at the previous Congress government in the state, PM Modi said, “When I came to the Centre in 2014 and there was a government of another party in the state, they did not allow central schemes to progress here.”
“I want to see this development campaign touch the heights of the skies like the peaks of the Himalayas. I urge you earnestly to let the development journey of the state continue. The journey of Himachal’s development began in 2017 when the BJP government was elected here, the Prime Minister said in his letter, saying, “We do not have to stop this journey.”
Ever since the “double-engine government” took shape in Himachal, several schemes like Ujjwala, toilets, and tap water connections in every rural household were aggressively implemented to ease the living of women and girls, he said. “We are reaping the benefits of these efforts.”
“Today, the hill state has become a centre of progress and tourism instead of migration and troubles. We are also developing infrastructure related to agriculture and horticulture in the state and work is underway to raise job opportunities for the youth through industrialization,” PM Modi said.
He said the land of Himachal Pradesh is so spiritual that even after one visit, a person can experience its splendour for a lifetime.
“I have had the good fortune of living amid you for many years. It is my lifelong duty to serve Himachal to repay your debt. The BJP considers Himachal a land of faith, spirituality, and culture. That is the reason the BJP government has always believed in the service of the state,” the Prime Minister said.
PM Modi further said at a time when people are about to vote for the future of the state, “I want to offer you gratitude for your blessings and affections.”
PM Modi also said over the past years, the BJP’s “double-engine governments” at the Centre and the state have worked for the development of Himachal Pradesh, especially its long-neglected border regions.
