Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that a conspiracy is being plotted to defame India, and especially Indian tea, citing “some documents”. He reached out to Assam and West Bengal tea garden staff. He said they would demand clarification from political groups supposedly supporting those behind these manipulations.
He reiterated that Assam was renowned for tea and that the red tea of Sonitpur, where he is speaking today, was unparalleled.” I personally know about it”. He said, noting that there were plans to roll down the most popular item in the state.
“Some documents have come out that reveal that some people outside India are trying to malign India’s tea and the nation’s image associated with it”. He said today. “Every tea garden, every tea worker will seek answers from those political parties behind the conspirators.”
In the light of the funds allocated of ₹ 1,000 crores for a healthcare scheme for plantation employees, the Prime Minister referred to the’ conspiracy’. In the northeastern state of India, finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman has also allocated 34,000 crores in three years for infrastructure improvements.
Today, PM Modi laid the foundation for two medical colleges in Biswanath and Charaideo. He also launched a highway-and-road project, “Asom Mala”
More Words By Modi During Assam Visit:
“Since independence for seven decades, Assam had six medical colleges. But in the past five years, we have started to build six more medical colleges. With this, Assam will get 1,600 MBBS doctors every year,” the Prime Minister said.
He also added that the Asom Mala project would gel with the Bharatmala national project. It seeks to link four-lane highways to over 500 districts of the nation.
As no Prime Minister ever has attended the historical site where 13 people were martyred during the Quit India movement. The movement happened during the British Raj, the meeting place of Sonitpur’s Dhekiajuli was important today. Remembering their bravery, the Prime Minister said, “In this land, the people of Assam defeated the aggressors. Today I got the opportunity to pay respect to this historic land of Dhekiajuli.” In this context, he quoted legendary Assamese composer and singer Bhupen Hazarika to say that “today the lions of India are awakening”.
Later today, he would tour West Bengal, where, in the run-up to the state assembly polls, he will hold his very first election rally. Considerably, the function will take place in Haldia, East Midnapur, the birthplace of the former Trinamool minister. Suvendu Adhikari joined the BJP in December.
Later, four oil-and-gas projects worth 4,700 crores in Haldia will be inaugurated by the Prime Minister.
