Speech by Sushma Swaraj at a meeting

I attended a meeting of Intellectual and Professionals today along with a few of my friends, in which Smt. Sushma Swaraj was the Chief Guest…..She was there to appeal the people to elect Sri N.Ramachander Rao as MP for Malkajgiri. Few points from her Brilliant speech. (The first two are Mighty Diplomatic Achievements….)

1) She recollected the Yemen incident which took place a couple of years back, in which India saved 5000 odd people ( 4000 Indians and the rest belonging to various countries)….. Saudi was attacking Yemen — Indians & many other foreigners stuck…To airlift Indians aerial attacks have to be stopped…On her request, Prime Minister  Modi called Saudi head right in front of her and asked for one-week ceasefire….. They called back 30mins later and they said they can ceasefire for 2 hours only a day — how Yemen opened its airport for this Indian Operation — and how India could evacuate 5000 plus people including foreigners—and 48 countries requested India to evacuate its citizens safe from Yemen and how heart fully the heads of those countries thanked Indian PM.

2) The OIC meeting happened in March 2019(soon after the Balakot Airstrikes)…..Pak blackmailed the “Organization of Islamic Countries” that it would boycott the meeting if they allowed India…But OIC refused to listen and admitted India and forced Pakistan to skip the meeting…..and Pakistan was shamed……50 years back in 1969, in a similar situation, Pak could successfully thwart India’s presence in the meeting by a similar type of blackmailing…. and how things are different now.

3) No bomb attacks inside the country since the last 5 years and any terror attacks restricted to borders.

4) The Balakot Airstrikes and the tough decision of PM behind it.

5) How the opposition leaders are keen to believe Masood Azhar and Imran Khan but not prepared give credit to Army for the Airstrikes, Surgical strike and the political will behind it.

5) She blasted the Congress Manifesto which brazenly promises Removal of Anti Sedition law, Review of AFSPA, Soft approach in Kashmir, playing into the hands of Liberals and Anti nationals. There is a huge difference between Modi who came up the ladder after starting from Grass root level and Rahul Gandhi who is a sort of a prince…..Modi knows the pulse of Indians whereas the other is not even anywhere close to it.

6) And the Unprecedented development that happened in the last 5 years in so many areas. And how foreign countries expressed astonishment with her at such great progress. She said that the development is a reflection of Modi’s will power and also the clear mandate given by people of India in 2014 which empowered him to take bold decisions……

And finally, to end the meeting, she appealed all to vote for the development again.

Most of the Development aspects she mentioned can be seen in this slide👇

Manohar Parrikar Letter to Rahul Gandhi

MANOHAR PARRIKAR

CHIEF MINISTER, GOA

 30th January, 2019

Dear Sri Rahul Gandhi,

Yesterday, i.e., on 29th January 2019, without any prior intimation you called on me and enquired me about my health condition. We have a healthy political tradition to rise above bipartisan considerations and wish even opponents a quick recovery from any ailments. I received your visit in that spirit, fighting as I am, with good medical care, a severe ailment. I appreciate your kind gesture.

 

However, reading media reports covering your visit to my office has caused me distress. It is reported in the media that you have said quoting me that I was nowhere in the process of procuring Rafale nor did I have any information then about it.  I feel let down that you have used this visit for your petty political gains. In the 05 minutes you spent with me, neither did you mention anything about Rafale, nor did we discuss anything about/related to it. Nothing whatsoever about  Rafale was even mentioned in your meeting with me.

 

The Inter-Government Agreement (IGA) and the procurement of Rafale are as per the Defence Procurement Procedure. I have said this before and wish to reiterate it again in today’s context too. The fighter aircraft are procured following all stated procedures keeping national security as top priority.

Paying a courtesy visit and then stooping so low as to make a false statement for petty political gain has raised, in my mind, questions about the sincerity and purpose of your visit itself.

Here I am fighting against-threatening illness. Due to my training and ideological strength, I wish to serve Goa and its people against any/all odds. I thought your visit would give me your good wishes in that cause of serving our people. Little did I know that you had other intentions.

With deep disappointment, I write to you hoping that you would put out the truth. Kindly do not use your visit to an ailing person to feed political opportunism.

I remain in the service of the people of Goa and India.

 

With warm regards,

क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा

बाधाएँ आती हैं आएँ
घिरें प्रलय की घोर घटाएँ,
पावों के नीचे अंगारे,
सिर पर बरसें यदि ज्वालाएँ,
निज हाथों में हँसते-हँसते,
आग लगाकर जलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।

हास्य-रूदन में, तूफ़ानों में,
अगर असंख्यक बलिदानों में,
उद्यानों में, वीरानों में,
अपमानों में, सम्मानों में,
उन्नत मस्तक, उभरा सीना,
पीड़ाओं में पलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।

उजियारे में, अंधकार में,
कल कहार में, बीच धार में,
घोर घृणा में, पूत प्यार में,
क्षणिक जीत में, दीर्घ हार में,
जीवन के शत-शत आकर्षक,
अरमानों को ढलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।

सम्मुख फैला अगर ध्येय पथ,
प्रगति चिरंतन कैसा इति अब,
सुस्मित हर्षित कैसा श्रम श्लथ,
असफल, सफल समान मनोरथ,
सब कुछ देकर कुछ न मांगते,
पावस बनकर ढ़लना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।

कुछ काँटों से सज्जित जीवन,
प्रखर प्यार से वंचित यौवन,
नीरवता से मुखरित मधुबन,
परहित अर्पित अपना तन-मन,
जीवन को शत-शत आहुति में,
जलना होगा, गलना होगा।
क़दम मिलाकर चलना होगा।
