Modi speaks of non-discrimination and equality

New Delhi PTI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today spoke of the message of non-discrimination and equality as he reached out to journalists at a ‘diwali milan’ at the BJP headquarters here.

Hailing Indian festivals as occasions which give a new inspiration to society, he said “The festival of lights (Deep Parva) is also a part of it. There is no discrimination in it. It also strengthens the value of equality.”

Speaking about mass connect of festivals including the Kumbh fair, Modi said “In our society, festivals in themselves are a big strength, which give the society a new momentum, energy and enthusiasm.

“A number of stories can be generated if its social and economic aspects are analysed. For instance the gathering on the banks of the Ganges during the Kumb Mela is so huge as if there some small European country there,” he said.

After his brief remarks from the podium, the Prime Minister stepped down to go around freely shaking hands with the assembled journalists, some of whom took selfies with him.

It was a repeat of the scenes like last year when Modi reached out to journalists on a similar occasion. Again he was was literally mobbed by them during the informal interaction.

The Prime Minister said that this year’s diwali milan got delayed due to his busy schedule. “Had it not been done now, one may have had to wait till Christmas.”

BJP Chief Amit Shah wished a great year for the country’s democratic traditions.

Referring to the two-day long debate in Parliament to commemorate the Constitution Day and the 125th birth anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar, Shah said that Parliament has unanimously placed the supremacy of the Constitution above all.

“Our effort will be to take this spirit down the line to people and make even the weakest person in the society aware of the Constitutional rights by next year along with the help of all parties and media,” Shah said.

  1. Mr. Modi, you talk about discrimination and intolerance in a very vague manner without specifically targeting the issue.
    It seems like you are afraid of your party comrades to speak loud and precisely. If the Christians are attacked, you will not mention the name “Christian” while you talk about that issue. If it is a Muslim issue, you will not mention “Muslim”, but simply fly around the issue; this is a very mysterious character of the Prime Minister of India which is too hard to comprehend.

  2. Modi speaks of ““Our effort will be to take this spirit down the line to people and make even the weakest person in the society aware of the Constitutional rights by next year”

    Sir, in your capacity of BEING the prime-minister, ensure that the people are not deprived of their Constitutional protection and fundamental rights under the virtual rule of India by the RSS now.

    Just tall talks of educating them to be aware of the Constitution (which they know and have experienced in the last at least 60 years), depriving them of constitutional protection and facilities, IS JUST MANAGING THE HEAD-LINES, WITH ULTERIOR MOTIVE! You do not comply with the Constitution and secularism enshrined in the fundamental rights.

    Constitution is not “make in India”! It is already “made in India”! Let it prevail and do not let it to be undone in a “colourable” manner and subvert it.

    DO NOT LET YOUR MINIONS PREACH THAT “SECULAR” IS MOST MISUSED WORD IN INDIA, AS THE RSS PRACHARAK – CUM – HOME MINISTER, RAJANATH SINGH DOES. IN FACT, SAFFRON IS THE MOST MISUSED COLOUR UNDER YOU!

    IT IS THE COLOUR AND NOT THE WORD “secular” WHICH IS MISUSED.
