Bhagwant Mann Slams PM Modi as master of phraseology

By JAG MOHAN THAKEN- Chandigarh, India- Taking a jibe over PM Narendra Modi’s one nation, one election stance, the Punjab Chief Minister, Bhagwant Mann said that why Modi is not pursuing the agenda of one nation, one education. He said that there is a huge parity in the education being imparted at convent schools and the government schools but unfortunately no one has ever paid heed to it. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that Modi who is master of phraseology has only befooled the people by coining slogans like ache din and others.
The Chief Minister said that previous governments at the centre and state played friendly matches with each other to plunder public wealth. He said that they robbed people more than Britishers people had no other option except electing them again and again. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that but now in the form of AAP people have found a catalyst of change in the country and people are rejecting BJP and Congress by opting for AAP.
Bhagwant Mann said that our great freedom fighters had envisioned a classless democracy where elected representatives will work as real servants of people to ensure their wellbeing. However, he bemoaned that in the last 75 years these elected representatives have turned into political executives by irrelevantly drawing huge salaries and pensions from the state exchequer. Bhagwant Mann said that the entire burden of this facility to these leaders was on the taxpayers as their money was wasted on ensuring multiple pensions to these leaders instead of being used for the public welfare.
The Chief Minister, while addressing the gathering after dedicating/ laying foundation stone of the projects worth Rs 283 crore at Nakodar (Jalandhar), on Wednesday , said that the Lok Sabha MP elected from Jalandhar last year has worked tirelessly for the welfare of the people and the development of the district. He said that the festivals of joy had ceased to take place during the previous regimes. Bhagwant Singh Mann said but the atmosphere has changed after the AAP government has assumed charge in the state.
CM Mann said that it is a matter of immense pride and satisfaction that 90% consumers in the state are getting zero power bill due to pro-people decisions of the state government. He said that to impart quality health services to people, the state government has set up 664 Aam Aadmi Clinics in Punjab adding that 150 more such clinics will be dedicated to the people of the state very soon. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that around one crore people have so far availed the facilities of free healthcare in these clinics adding that this is a new revolution in the healthcare sector adding that efforts are afoot to give a facelift to this sector.
The Chief Minister said that in the coming budget no new burden will be levied on the people of the state and the pro-people budget will give impetus to ongoing development of the state. He said that the move is aimed at ensuring that people are immensely benefited from it, adding that no stone will be left unturned for the well-being of the common man. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that strenuous efforts are being made to benefit every stratum of society and this will provide dividends in the coming days. He said that the traditional parties are envious of him because he hails from a common family and is working tirelessly to ensure welfare of people. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that these leaders had always believed that they have divine right to rule the state due to which they are not able to digest that a common man is running the state efficiently. He said that these leaders have befooled the people for a long time but now people are not getting swayed by their misleading propaganda.
Bhagwant Mann said that in the coming two or three days he will expose the big leaders of the state who had used the state exchequer for their personal use. He said that these leaders had mercilessly plundered the wealth of Punjab for which they will be duly punished. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that in the coming days the ugly faces of these leaders will be unveiled before the general public for their sins.
The Chief Minister said that since 2022 the so-called big leaders of the state have been sent to political oblivion by the people. He said that these leaders had mercilessly looted the people during their tenure during which people had ousted them. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that these arrogant leaders have been trounced by the people due to their anti-people stance.
Taking a jibe over the ‘Punjab Bachao Yatra’ of Akali Dal, the Chief Minister said that the real name of this gimmick of Akali Dal is ‘Parivar Bachao Yatra’ adding he dared the Akali leaders to explain that after looting the state for 15 years, from whom they are trying to save the state from. He said that the Akalis have plundered the state mercilessly besides bruising the psyche of Punjabis emotionally and patronizing several mafias in the state. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that people are well aware of the dubious character of the Akalis and Badal family due to which their theatricals won’t work now.
The Chief Minister said that the people have not forgotten the dubious role of Akali Dal as they had allowed the sacrilege of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji besides patronizing the drug trade in the state. He said that the hands of Akali leadership are drenched with the blood of Punjab and Punjabis adding that people will never forgive them for these sins. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that time has come when people must teach them a lesson by routing them out during the ensuing Lok Sabha polls.Bhagwant Mann said that in the coming days the industrial sector will also be given cheap power for which the state government is already working on it. He said that this will boost industrialisation in the state and open new avenues of employment for the coming days.
Bhagwant Singh Mann said that this will put the state on a trajectory of high growth and give fillip to overall development of the state.
The Chief Minister also announced that an investment facilitation centre will be soon opened in Jalandhar to facilitate the industrialists and traders of the Majha and Doaba region. He said that this will facilitate the traders and industrialists in a big way by ensuring that they don’t have to go to Chandigarh for their petty work. Bhagwant Singh Mann said that every decision of the state government is aimed at ensuring the welfare of every section of society.
