Mahoba/New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday hit out at the previous Central and state governments, saying they discriminated against Bundelkhand and showed no interest in completing irrigation projects.
He said that the governments that ruled for a long time in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh left no stone unturned to destroy Bundelkhand.
Earlier in Mahoba, Prime Minister Modi inaugurated various irrigation projects.
Addressing a huge public meeting held on this occasion, he lashed out at the previous Central and state governments for the backwardness of Bundelkhand.
Modi said that the previous governments, which ruled Uttar Pradesh, did not show any interest in the development of the area. How the forests, resources were handed over to the mafia, it is not hidden from anyone.
Without naming the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Akhilesh Yadav, Narendra Modi said that the governments of family members deprived children, daughters of toilets, drinking water in schools whereas the present Yogi government made separate toilets for girls in the school.
Counting the achievements of the Central government, Modi told that in the last seven years, he has worked to bring the government out of the closed rooms of Delhi to every nook and corner of the country. Mahoba is a living witness to this. This earth has been a witness to such schemes, such decisions, which have made big changes in the lives of poor mothers and sisters of the country.
In his address, the Prime Minister said that some time back, the second phase of the Ujjwala scheme was started from here. A few years back, I had promised from Mahoba to the Muslim sisters of the country that I would free them from the practice of triple talaq. This promise has also been fulfilled.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was speaking by inaugurating important projects to overcome the water crisis of Bundelkhand. The total cost of these projects is more than Rs 3250 crore. Their completion will help irrigate about 65,000 hectares of land in Mahoba, Hamirpur, Banda and Lalitpur districts. Along with this, the availability of drinking water will also increase in the area.
