PM Modi gave “suvidha, swastha & samman” to women: Dr. Jitendra Singh

Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh and BJP Candidate for Udhampur Lok Sabha constituency said at Hiranagar today that Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave women ‘Suvidha’, ‘Swastha’ and ‘Samman’. In other words he provided facilities for the convenience of women folk thereby also taking care of their healthy well-being and at the same time accord  them the respect and esteem that they deserve.

In his very first Independence Day address after taking over as Prime Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh recalled that Narendra Modi gave a call for building of toilets, specially women toilets. The impact was so magical that within the first year itself more than 4 Lakh toilets were built and it turned into a mass movement. In doing so, Modi not only provided facility to the deprived women but also gave them a dignified and healthy option, he added. 

Similarly, Dr Jitendra Singh said, when Prime Minister Modi provided gas cylinders under “Ujjwala Scheme”, there was no discrimination on the basis of caste, creed and religion or even vote bank consideration.  The Pucca houses being constructed are being given to the deserving families without any political consideration and by doing so Modi has introduced a new political culture in this country. 

Most of Prime Minister Modi’s schemes, said Dr. Jitendra Singh, are women-centric and youth-centric without any terms and conditions or mortgage and the only guarantee is “Modi ki Guarantee”. Therefore, he was sure that Nari Shakti will be the guarantee for the Modi mandate of 400 Plus, he said.

As far Hirangar is concerned, Dr Jitendra Singh said, for the last nearly seven decades, the then governments of Congress and its ally parties deliberately neglected this region, because it was the land of Pandit Prem Nath Dogra known for  patriotism and nationalism of its people who had traditionally stood in support of Bharatiya Jan Sangh and later Bharatiya Janata Party. 

Being close to the International Border, Dr Jitendra Singh recalled the times before 2014 when after every border firing incident, people  of the border areas would be at last to find shelter and they would seek refuge in Panchayat Ghar or Government School or relative’s houses. Today, there is a family bunker for every household which is like a one room flat, he said. 

Dr Jitendra Singh recalled, it was the Congress government which cancelled the Dogra Certificate, thus depriving the marshal race youth of this belt from getting recruited in the forces. Again, it was the government of  Congress and its allies which gave 4% reservation to the youth along LoC but denied the same to the youth along the International Border of Hiranagar because it did not find its voteback there. There can be no greater inhuman injustice to the youth , he said. 

Dr Jitendra Singh said, it is the Modi government which has undone all these anomalies and given equal justice to all. Today, roads have been constructed up to the zero line international border and all this has happened only in the last 10 years. 

Dr Jitendra Singh recalled that only last December, he had laid the foundation of four important road projects and inaugurated nine roads in the Hiranagar sector. The four road projects of more than 25 Kms are at a cost of Rs.2594 Lakh Crore, while the nine roads measuring 73.57 Kms area at a cost 546.8 Lakh Crore. With the construction of these roads, 74 habitations and more than 11,000 people in the border region will be benefited. 

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh informed that 60-65 percent of PMGSY road projects allotted this year to J&K at a cost of over Rs 3,700 cr belong to his Lok Sabha Parliamentary constituency. He said that several far flung areas have been connected with all-weather roads for the benefit of people living in these locations.  Work is underway in full swing to complete the remaining projects, he said.

About the proposed Arun Jaitley Sports Stadium, said Dr Jitendra Singh, there is some delay due to transfer of land and other formalities but now BCCI has agreed to take up the project and bring up a stadium of international standards. 

Raghunandan Singh Babloo, DDC Vice Chairman, Gopal Mahajan BJP District President, Kuldip Raj former MLA, Adv Vijay Sharma former Chairman Municipal Committee, Abhinandan DDC member, senior leaders Prem Nath Dogra, Janak Bharati , among others, spoke on the occasion and hailed Dr Jitendra Singh as “Vikas Purush” who had developed and transformed the entire region under PM Modi.
