Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)
Bengaluru, Oct 11: "The young population of India used to worship Swami Vivekananda till the year 2014. Their adulation turned towards Narendra Modi thereafter," said state BJP president and MP Nalin Kumar Kateel.
He was speaking after taking part in the valedictory function of the biggest 'Nava Bharat Mela'; organized at BTM Layout here by the BJP Yuva Morcha. He stated that Narendra Modi has emerged as the icon of the entire nation.
"Swami Vivekananda dreamt of spreading Indian Culture all over the world and drew up plans to materialise this dream. His intention was that the country should go ahead with indigenous ideals and ideologies, and get rid of slavery. In the 75 years after independence, the Congress ruled India for 65 years. The Congress gifted poverty, hunger, diseases and unemployment to the people of the country," he said.
Nalin pointed out that the very countries which used to treat India lightly by branding it to be a nation of beggars, diseases and unemployed people, looked upon Narendra Modi during the covid19 period and requested him to supply them vaccines. "Modi did not lay the foundation stone for Ram Mandir alone. He has laid a strong foundation stone for India whenever he went to different parts of the world. Even the American President has confessed that Narendra Modi is his most loved leader and India is his most beloved country," he stated.
Minister for horticulture Munirathna, state BJP Yuva Morcha treasurer and Navabharat Mela state convener, Anil Shetty and others took part in the programme.
