A true leader of the people, by the people & for the peoplePIyush goyal – union railway minister
Today, PM Narendra Modi ji reached AIIMS early in the morning without disturbing normal traffic.

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi interacts with students at St. Joseph’s Matric Hr. Sec. School, Kanyakumari. Excerpts. via INC India:
The pillars of an education system are students and teachers and they are both equally important.
Any policy that is made without asking teachers and students what they want is not going to be a policy that will benefit education
NEET issue is a big issue here and is stopping a lot of youngsters from achieving their dreams so it is not beneficial
If I come to you and ask – what do you need? What is required? What do the teachers and students require? Then that is humility on my part. Humility solves problems, arrogance creates problems
PM Modi India is 1.3 billion people with different ideas, languages, religions & visions. Why are you convinced that all ideas should come from you? Why don’t you listen to the Indian people? Why don’t you try to understand what people want?
What India now needs is another freedom struggle but it has to be non-violent & affectionate.
There’s a lot of anger & fear that’s been spread in India. That’s what we have to fight & once again make India happy, comfortable, fearless & united
As mentioned, Govt might be giving a lot of freebies but remember something, it might look free to you but when you take it, it’s not free, it will have some other cost somewhere. Only thing is, you didn’t realise what the cost was
Balance is what is powerful. In a country, if you only help the rich people, you will have a problem.
If you only help men, you will have a problem. Balance is very important in life, you will be successful if you create a balance
Last UPA Govt pulled maximum number of people out of poverty, in history. Unfortunately, demonetisation, GST, Corona have put a lot of those people back into poverty.
We have a very good idea on how to make a final assault on poverty in India, through ‘NYAY’
Idea under ‘NYAY’ scheme is to give ₹ 72000 to every single poor Indian family, each year, until they are out of poverty.
If we form a Govt, we will implement this scheme. It’ll be a matter of 5-6 years before we completely eradicate poverty
India has no shortage of money. India’s problem is the way the money is distributed. The ‘NYAY’ scheme will dent the unfair income distribution in India
The richest people in the land can get a bank loan at a much lower rate than the poorest people in the land.
Yes, we need to help the poor understand finance but we also need to understand and accept that the system works against poor people

Lord Jagannath is the centre of faith for all Hindus.
It is our collective responsibility to work towards the development and promotion of the Jagannath Culture—which is synonymous with the belief and identity of all Hindus across the globe, including 4.5 crore Odias in Odisha.
Privileged to do my humble bit by donating ₹1 lakh to the Sri Jagannath Temple Administration for the development of Sri Mandir and Sri Kshetra.
Appeal my Odia brothers and sisters and all devotees of the Lord to join hands for this holy cause.
We are all blessed that Mahaprabhu Jagannath has given us all this opportunity and responsibility to serve him.

Amount of work done in last 5 years is incredible.
Great progress in infrastructure, youth development and social security.
People will reward his sincerity & hard work.

Kudos to BJYM Pres Anup Barman

Few days ago, Aparna Reddy of Hyderabad asked me if I ever felt anything amiss during my stints as CM and PM!
I thought about it and told myself that I couldn’t make sufficient efforts to learn Tamil language!
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi interaction with College Professors at St. Xavier’s College in Tamil Nadu. Excerpts, via INC India:
I’d like to welcome all of you here. I can see the future of this country, I can see many young women & young men here, and I am confident that you are going to do great things.
I’m am here to have a conversation with you. Conversation is about what you and I feel. I am here to listen, more than to speak.
If we are going to have any policy that is going to be made for education system, it has to come from a conversation with students & professors. And unfortunately, this was not done [with NEP]
It is impossible for someone outside the education system to tell our students & teachers what is best for them. That is the first problem [with NEP].
The second problem is that they are centralising too much power into the Central govt, into one institution. This is going to damage our education system.
NEP is a weapon to communalise, a weapon to push a particular ideology into our education system.
When they say ‘Tamil Nadu is on the way to success’, you have to ask one question, ‘who in Tamil Nadu is being successful?’. The thing they never say is that 2-3 people are being successful, they assume everybody is but that is not the case.
As long as all ideas are shared without hatred, without anger, I don’t see a problem with conversations taking place.
A healthy democracy should be confident enough to speak about anything. It should not be without courage to speak the truth.
The Modi govt says they represent Hinduism. But a lot of ideas that they espouse have nothing to do with Hinduism. Nowhere in Hinduism does it ask to insult, beat & kill people.
The true principles of religion are very simple: Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism all say the same thing – treat the other person with respect, love & affection.
Modi govt’s whole game is to steal. The idea is – do whatever you have to do to take the money of the people of India.
There is no society in the world that can be successful without respecting & empowering its women. There is a lot we have to do in India to give our women the space that they deserve & require to grow.
I believe the education should be universal, not only for financially strong people. So, the more scholarships we give & the more exposure we give to poorer people, the better it is.
I am confident that when we come to power after the elections, we are going to push for scholarships & access of education to women & poorer people. I stand for that whole-heartedly.
We believe education is a weapon of empowerment for our people. Making education accessible to all, is something important & fundamental.
I believe a teacher has to be a central pillar of education.
The goal of education is not only collecting information, it is taking that information & distilling it into knowledge and then into wisdom.
Our students have to be global as well as local. There is a requirement for us to be open to the rest of the world but there is also a requirement to never forget where we come from, who we are, what our history is & what our tradition is.
Teachers play a central role in the building of our nation & I am not happy with how they are paid for the hard work they do
Teaching should be a profession that gives you remuneration, that people admire & want to be part of. That would be our vision for education.
A govt should be confident enough to allow different ideas to propagate. A govt that is trying to crush ideas, frightening people, locking up people will never create a creative atmosphere in the country.
If you recall, 70, years ago, this country was ruled by the British. Much more powerful than Narendra Modi will ever be. And the people of this country sent the British empire back. Same way, we will send Narendra Modi back to Nagpur.
We will send Narendra Modi back to Nagpur without any hatred, without any anger, without any violence
Education is not a financial commodity. One should not be able to buy an education, education should be available to everybody – rich, poor, man & woman. And it is a duty of the nation to give education & healthcare to its people.
Today, everything is being seen as a financial commodity – agri, edu, healthcare. Basically, if you have money you get whatever you want & if you don’t then you get nothing. This is where India is heading & I am fundamentally against it.
There should be a large part of the education system that should be free, easily accessible & high quality.
Access & excellence at scale are impossible to achieve with centralisation & corporatisation. If you want achieve this, the govt must play a role, large amount of public money has to go into it & we have to support teachers & institutions.
The Modi govt is more than happy to give Rs.1,50,000 crores to 5-7 business people during Covid19. Why are they not ready to put that money into the education system of our country?
Teachers are one of the central pillars of our education system and we need to empower them, strengthen them and make them comfortable so that they can impart knowledge & wisdom to our students.
Teachers are doing a tremendous job for this country. Every single day in the classroom strengthens this country. Thank you.

- The erstwhile congress government in Puducherry was serving a family, instead of serving the people of the state.
- Now Puducherry is all set to elect BJP led NDA government in the upcoming elections.
