Modi visited a Pashu Arogya Mela and laid the foundation stone for toilet under Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Minister of State for Rural Development Mahendra Singh and BJP State Unit President Mahendra Nath Pandey were also present during the function.
As reported by DNA, hitting out at the criticism of opposition parties, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday emphasised that governance is not about vote banks and the country is bigger than party.
“Our politics is not for votes, our culture is different as for us country is bigger than party,” said Modi addressing a public meeting at Shahanshahpur village on the second and last day of his two-day visit to his parliamentary constituency Varanasi.
“Our priority is a development of the country,” he added.
The Prime Minister also said that ‘Swachhta’ has to become ‘Swabhav’ and it’s our collective responsibility.
“A cleaner India will also be a healthier India,” he added. On Friday, Prime Minister Modi inaugurated a direct train service to Gujarat connecting Vadodara, and also unveiled the Deendayal Hastkala Sankul and the Mahamana Express. This train will connect Varanasi with Surat and Vadodara in Gujarat.
Lashing out at previous governments, he said, they do not want development and that the national exchequer was ‘destroyed’ to win elections.
“They were driven by political calculations, resulting in schemes being inaugurated but never seeing completion,” he added.
In the meanwhile, a video has emerged on social media which showcases temporary makeshift arrangement to in Varanasi to cover up sewages during PMs visit.
