‘Brought in laws for decisive war against terror’
Ranchi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at a rally in Ranchi on Thursday that the overwhelming mandate had ensured that his government had the numbers to take strong decisions like getting the triple talaq bill passed and nullifying Articles 370 and 35A that guaranteed special status to J&K. “We brought in laws for a decisive battle against terrorism,” he said, referring to the amendment to the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act that empowers the Centre to designate individuals as terrorists and seize their properties.
“We’ve taken steps to bring development to J&K and Ladakh. The benefits of the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi have reached more than six crore farmers. Of these, eight lakh are from Jharkhand,” he added.
Playing on the central theme of Modi 2.0 being a “kaamdar aur dumdaar (workaholic and strong)” government, Modi said, “It is just the beginning of the five years we have.”
The PM launched the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Maan Dhan Yojana, a pension scheme for farmers and small traders, and the Eklavya Vidyalaya scheme for tribal students. He also laid the foundation of a Rs 1,238 crore secretariat building in Ranchi.
