BJP govt forms separate Ministry for development of tribals: PM Narendra  Modi

Adilabad (Telangana), (| Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said the BJP government has formed a separate Ministry for the development of tribals.  Addressing a public meeting (Vijay Sankalpa Sabha) here after launching multiple developmental projects worth Rs 56,000 Crore in the state, Modi said, “Even after several decades post-independence, the contribution made by the people of Telangana was never given due respect. However, after 2014, the BJP Government at the Centre gave great importance to the development of Telangana and the honour of the tribal community.”

“Could anyone have imagined that a tribal woman would become the President of the country, ” he said and added whether anyone had imagined that the birth anniversary of Bhagwan Birsa Munda would be celebrated as a national festival. For the development of tribals, the BJP Government formed a separate ministry, the PM said.
This public meeting is not related to election rallies as the official announcement of elections has not been made yet , Modi said and criticised the opposition remarks for labeling public gatherings as election rallies. He stated that some individuals are not putting in enough effort and prematurely categorising these events as election public meetings.

He emphasised that such assumptions are unwarranted since the official announcement of elections has not been made yet. The BJP-led central government is celebrating the ‘vikas utsav’, he said adding in the last 15 days, two IITs, three IIMs and one IIS were inaugurated. Similarly, five AIIMS were inaugurated and the world’s largest storage scheme was launched for the farmers, the Modi said.

Today, the foundation laid for two new national highways in Adilabad, Bela and Mulugu in Telangana and these modern road and rail infrastructures would help in developing Telangana, the PM added. (UNI)
