Development only answer to all sorts of violence: PM Modi in Chhattisgarh

New Delhi, Jun 14 (NIE): On his day-long visit to Chhattisgarh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday expressed concern over the menace of naxalism in state and said it can be eradicated only with development. The Prime Minister, who will inaugurate several projects in the state during his visit, suggested that development is the only answer to violence.

“I believe all sort of violence has only one answer-development. It is the trust generated by the development that will put an end to all kind of violence,” said Modi while addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh, which goes to polls later this year.

His comments made here assume significance as Chhattisgarh has been reeling under naxal insurgency and has witnessed large scale violence by the naxals.

The prime minister also lauded the BJP government for changing the perception of Chhattisgarh in the mind of the people. “Chhattisgarh was earlier known for forests and tribals, now it’s known for ‘smart city’ Naya Raipur,” said Modi, adding that his government is working towards increasing income of tribals and those living in backward areas.

Talking about creating “an atmosphere of trust”, the prime minister said his government has ensured that a part of the earnings from the natural resources like minerals would be spent on the welfare of locals. Accordingly, Chattisgarh has received Rs 3000 crore as additional funds, which would be spent on hospitals, schools, roads and toilets, he said.

Among the various projects launched today was the air service between Jagdalpur and Raipur. Talking about his government plan to connect small cities and towns with air service, Modi said, “It’s my dream to see that one who wears ‘hawai chappal’, travels in airplane.” He said this was the objective of the ‘Udaan’ scheme of the central government, intended to connect small cities and towns by air.

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha were among others present during the occasion.

    Is Prime Minister Modi said 'Development' or 'De-elopement'? Both English word sounds similar and that is reason BJP is now stop using the Hindi word 'Vikas'.

    In Chhattisgarh BJP is ruling for last three terms. The state would already reached to the moon in development. But CM Raman Singh government whose name is one of the prominent in the 'Panama paper' and 'PDS Gottala' is yet to be investigated.

    The state under BJP became nightmare for 'Adivasi' and Christians in particular. Now election is approaching after the world tour collecting 'Air Miles', it is time for 'Jumla' promises and fake history.

    I challenge BJP to list all the development if they can dare to show to the citizens of India.

    Mr. bhakta, can you list out any development he has done for the last 4 years? Modi was doing photo shoot for the projects which initiated during UPA2, which he was claiming that it was his achievement. What an irony!

    One of the DW reader Mahendra Shetty from Mumbai ( if I’m not mistaken) was claiming that Sunil Kumar has done lot of development work in karkala. For which I had asked him what kind of development & which area he has done, I never get answer for that.

    Beef business bundh kar diya.
    Construction business is totally down.

    God only knows what the hell he wants.

    Oh Yeah, development indeed!!!!. We have made significant development in nabbing the Lankesh killer. Simultaneously killers of Kalburgi and such will be nabbed and brought to justice soon. Also we have uncovered a plot to kill Narendra Nayak. Aren't you going to say anything about these new developments which were happening after 2014. You may say, vow and swear many things but that's not enough. We want action and accountability.

    Keep on Lynching minorities (violence) and Dalits & Keep on promising fake Development. No need for justice to citizens. Even Britishers developed India.

    What about violence in name of Religion, Gaunomics, Moral policing... What about violence in the name of development and due to illegal encroachment and evictions?? Other than saying development and we are doing this and we are doing that for development is there anything else that our PM knows to say?? Where is the development?? what development? You justify increase in taxes, fuel prices by saying its for development.. well the last 70 years the past Governments including yours truly Vajpayee Govt also contributed to the development of this nation to what it is today and we didnt have to bear the brunt of the cost of that development... The difference between an educated leader Vs an uneducated leader is this... the uneducated leader only knows that the only and easiest source of pumping money into the economy and claiming its for development is by taxing the people. What would that uneducated leader know about balancing the expenditure vs revenue

    I thought bullet train is the only solution. Now new train - development train, like demonetization train. Selling pakoda is self-employment, selling Chai is achievement.
