New Delhi, 26th Sept. Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on Monday that one cannot talk about inclusive society and democratic integration, without appropriate participation of women in politics.
Speaking at a BJP event following the unveiling of a statue of its ideologue Deendayal Upadhyaya on his birth anniversary here, Modi said the approval of the women’s reservation bill in Parliament is a victory not only for democracy but also for the party’s ideology.
He said his government in its nine years has worked on Upadhyaya’s philosophy of “integral humanism” and “antyodaya” (uplift of the most downtrodden) by working to ensure that its welfare schemes reach every needy without any discrimination, ruling out any appeasement and selfish interest.
Our “seva abhiyaan” (service campaign) is a big means of social justice and this is what true secularism is, he said.
For a long time, public resources were used for personal interests, he said in a jibe at political rivals, stressing that personal resources should be used to open the door of the country’s development.
He emphasised on promoting indigenous products to make his point.
In an earlier post on X, Prime Minister Modi paid tribute to Upadhyaya, saying he had spent his life serving the country and that his personality and efforts would always inspire people.
