Taking a dig at the third meeting of the Opposition’s I.N.D.I.A. alliance, BJP national president JP Nadda said that the leaders who had gathered in Mumbai want to take their own families forward, whereas Prime Minister Narendra Modi aims to take the country forward. In his address at ‘Meri Maati, Mera Desh’ event in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad, the BJP chief said, “The ones who had gathered in Mumbai yesterday are all those people who want to take their own families forward, whereas PM Modi wants to take the country forward.”

Notably, the Opposition alliance, I.N.D.I.A, held its third formal meeting in Mumbai on Friday, September 1.

In the meeting, it was decided that the I.N.D.I.A.  alliance parties will hold around half a dozen rallies in different regions of the country on issues like unemployment, price rise and saving democracy, sources said.

Nadda launches ‘Meri Maati, Mera Desh’ campaign 

Nadda launched the Meri Mati, Mera Desh program in Ghaziabad. He inaugurated the campaign by placing soil from Major Mohit Sharma’s home in Ghaziabad into an earthen pot. These pots will be collected at the district level and brought to Delhi. Addressing the workers at the launch of Meri Mati, Mera Desh campaign, the BJP chief said, “With the Chandrayaan mission, India has become the first nation to land a spacecraft on the south pole region of the Moon. Today, Aditya L-1 mission will be launched to study the Sun…”

He said India has experienced significant growth in the field of infrastructure adding that over the past nine years, India has risen to the fifth position, surpassing the United Kingdom, to become the fifth-largest economy. “Today, our country has grown exponentially in the sector of infrastructure. In the last nine years, India has reached the fifth spot, leaving behind Britain, to become the fifth largest economy,” said the BJP chief.

‘Pledge to transform India into a developed nation’

Nadda further urged people to visit villages and panchayats with the aim of ‘Amritkaal’ and take a pledge to transform India into a developed nation by August 15, 2047. “I request you all to go villages, panchayats with the objective of  ‘Amritkaal’ and take the resolve to make India a developed nation by August 15, 2047,” says BJP chief JP Nadda in his address at ‘Meri Maati, Mera Desh’ event in UP’s Ghaziabad.

“I have taken a pinch of soil from five households along with two granules of rice and we’ll collect it from every ward in a vessel. This vessel will reach the Municipal Corporation or Committee and from there it will reach the state’s capital Lucknow. Our Chief Minister will welcome it and our workers will carry 8000 vessels from 7500 blocks and 500 municipalities to Kartavya Path in Delhi at the end of October. All the BJP workers there will take an oath of the ‘Desh ki Maati’ that they will take care of the safety and security of the nation and will not leave any stone unturned in making India a developed nation in the Amrit Kaal,”  he added.
