Udupi BJP holds ‘Bharat Ke Mann Ki Baat, Modi Ke Saath’ Interaction Campaign with Fishermen
Udupi: As a part of the BJP’s public outreach campaign ahead of the general elections this year “Bharat Ke Mann Ki Baat, Modi Ke Saath” campaign was held with the fishermen community at Hotel Sharada International on Wednesday, February 20.
Addressing the gathering Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Shobha Karandlaje said that the Narendra Modi led Union government is committed to the overall development of the fishermen community. The government has proposed the creation of a separate department for fisheries in the recent budget. A 2% interest subvention on loans to fish farmers will help boost shrimp production and exports in the seafood industry.
The Union government is planning to form a uniform fishing policy for the southern states including Kerala, Karnataka, Goa, Maharastra and Gujarat. The BJP will include the uniform fishing policy demand in the upcoming Lok Sabha election manifesto. The party is also planning to introduce Ambulance boats to attend sea accidents, she said.
BJP national vice president and also MP, Avinash Khanna said that the Modi government has provided ‘scam-free’ governance during the last five years and the country has transformed to being a part of the global stage. The preceding ten years of the UPA rule had unquestionably witnessed the most corrupt government since Independence.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has created transparent systems through legislative and institutional changes which have given this country scam-free governance. When the global situation became challenging, the UPA’s decisiveness and performance collapsed. During the UPA tenure, India had witnessed substantially lower growth rates. From the NDA, India is the world’s fastest-growing major economy with the highest GDP growth rates, he said.
Opposition leader Kota Srinivas Poojary, MLA Raghupathi Bhat, Lalaji R Mendon, ZP president Dinakar Babu, BJP general secretary Yashpal Suvarna, BJP leaders Sadananda Balkur, Uday Kumar Shetty and others were present.
