400 days left to polls, use them to serve people, says Modi

NEW DELHI, Jan 17: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged BJP workers to dedicate themselves to working for people from all sections of society in the run up to the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Addressing the two-day BJP National Executive meeting on Tuesday, PM Modi said, “400 days are left to polls, use this period to reach out to people from all sections of society and serve them.”
He laid special emphasis on the 18 to 25 year olds and asked his party to spread awareness among them about India’s transition from misgovernance to good governance under the BJP rule.
The details of PM Modi’s speech at the key BJP meeting were shared with media by Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.
“The PM’s address was inspirational as well as a guide to a new path. He said that every moment of your life should be spent in the development story of India. The country can be taken forward only by converting this ‘Amrit Kaal’ into ‘Kartavya Kaal’,” said Fadnavis.
In an indication of what could be one of the important poll strategies for the BJP ahead of upcoming polls, PM Modi stressed on connecting with youth aged 18-25.
At a press briefing, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis said the PM talked about how the youth has not “witnessed the political history of India”.
“They aren’t aware of the corruption and wrong-doings that took place in the previous governments. So, the youth need to be made aware. They must be told about the good governance of BJP. The party will do it in the coming days,” said Fadnavis.
“The PM said we must convey to the youth how we have come from bad governance to good governance. We have to connect with all parts of the society with sensitivity. The BJP has to do the task of changing the country and society without worrying about votes,” said the BJP leader.
Speaking at the meet, PM Modi said: “India’s best era is coming and we must work very hard to contribute to the country’s development. Amrit Kaal should be transformed into Kartavya Kaal, then only the country can rapidly move towards progress.”
The resolution underlined that now the country is moving towards politics and governance of
The PM also said that the BJP is no longer a “mere political movement but also a social movement working to transform socio-economic conditions”.
Fadnavis added that the PM also stressed on connecting more with villages, especially in border areas.
“The PM urged mainstreaming of border villages and strengthening organisation in such villages … We were advised to conduct some special programmes, especially in border villages. So, that we can connect with them more, and our developmental schemes reach these areas.”
“The PM said the BJP workers should also play a role in the development of aspirational districts. Apart from this, all our states should connect emotionally by increasing coordination with each other as per our resolution: Ek Bharat Shresth Bharat,” said Fadnavis
