Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a public meeting in Chandauli in Uttar Pradesh said that despite all the pressures from around the world, the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was intact and it was here to stay. The prime minister is on a tour of Varanasi today.

After attending the programme in Varanasi, Modi reached Chandauli, where he unveiled a 63-feet-high statue of Pt Deen Dayal Upadhyaya.

Thereafter, while addressing a public meeting, the prime minister said whether Article 370 should be removed from Jammu and Kashmir or the CAA be made, the nation awaited these decisions for years.

The prime minister said, “With the blessings of Mahadev (Lord Shiva), today the country is taking the decisions that were earlier dropped, believed to be too hot to handle. Whether it was the decision to scrap Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir or that to make the CAA, the country had waited for years for them. These decisions were necessary in the interest of the country. Despite all the pressure from around the world, we will stand by and uphold these decisions.”

The prime minister said that he was assuring the people of the country that work for the country would continue continuously.

Prime Minister Modi said, “The problems of the person standing on the last rung of society for a long period after independence remained because the governments of the time were not interested in solving these problems. Keeping issues hanging served their political interests. But now the situation is changing, the country is changing. The one who has been the last in the queue is now our highest priority.”

The prime minister said that his government was continuously working to benefit development for the person standing last in the queue of society. He said that, under the Ayushman Bharat scheme, 90 lakh poor patients had got the benefit of free treatment.

Prime Minister Modi inaugurated about 50 projects worth Rs 1,254 crore in Varanasi on Sunday.
