In Shimla, PM Modi said that earlier there was talk about stuck latki bhatki schemes, nepotism and scams, but today there is talk about benefits from government schemes. Modi said vote bank politics continued in our country for decades. Everyone was busy in making their own vote bank. This vote bank politics has done a lot of damage to the country. We are working not to create vote bank, but to build a new India. He said that we have taken the responsibility of providing 100 percent benefit to the beneficiary.
The PM described Himachal as the land of heroes. He said that there is someone in the army from every house here. The people here cannot forget that the earlier governments cheated them in the name of One Rank One Pension. PM Modi said that the military family understands our sensitivity, our government has implemented One Rank One Pension. Actually Himachal Pradesh has a good number of ex-servicemen. There are about 1 lakh 30 thousand ex-servicemen in the state. There are about 1 lakh 25 thousand people working in the army from the state. There are about 30 thousand military widows. In this way, if seen, about 9-10 lakh people are from the family of soldiers or ex-servicemen.
It has been a trend in the politics of Himachal Pradesh that power changes in every election. Referring to the Prime Minister’s work, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said that the BJP broke many trends in the recently held assembly elections in five states and hoped the same would happen in Himachal Pradesh.
