New Delhi: The Congress has been vocal in criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the overall handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and the administrative response on the migrant workers’ crisis during the lockdown, yet the PM scores higher on satisfaction ratings of the CMs’ of UPA-ruled states, and also CMs’ on non-NDA/non-UPA-ruled states.

According to an IANS CVoter State of the Nation poll, the PM’s nett satisfaction ranking at 65.69 is better than the cumulative ranking, at satisfaction rating of 57.36, of all the chief ministers of the UPA-ruled states.

Strikingly, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who is spearheading the attack on the PM and pointing out gaps in Centre’s response on the Covid-19 pandemic, has a negative satisfaction rating in three states — Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Punjab. The overall rating of Gandhi is merely 0.58 in the UPA ruled states.

In the Modi vs Gandhi scenario, in the UPA-ruled states, the PM has the nett satisfaction rating of 42.99, where in Chhattisgarh the satisfaction ranking is 84.54.

Gandhi’s overall satisfaction rating in comparison with CM’s of UPA ruled states is -56.78, and the least satisfaction for Gandhi is in Chhattisgarh, where it is -75.65.

In PM-Gandhi comparison, the former has the nett satisfaction rating of 65.11 in the UPA ruled states. In four UPA ruled states — Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Punjab — in the PM-Gandhi comparison, the nett satisfaction rating of the PM, on an average, is above 80.

PM Modi has the highest satisfaction rating of 92.73 in Chhattisgarh whereas the state’s chief ministers has rating 81.06 and Gandhi’s rating 5.41.

According to the poll, the Punjab chief minister has the lowest satisfaction rating 27.51, and the PM has the satisfaction rating of 68.84 in this state.

In the PM-CM comparison, the former has overall nett satisfaction rating of 8.3 but this indicator is specifically negative in Maharashtra is -5.04. Moreover, Maharashtra is the only state where the satisfaction rating of the CM, at 76.52, is higher than the PM, which is 71.48.

In the non-NDA/non-UPA ruled states, the PM has nett satisfaction rating of 65.69, where the all the CMs have a cumulative satisfaction rating of 57.36. Gandhi’s satisfaction rating is again negative, -56.78, in comparison with CMs.

The PM has highest satisfaction rating Orissa, 95.6, followed by Andhra Pradesh, 83.6, and the least in Kerala, 32.9. According to the poll, PM’s satisfaction rating in West Bengal is 64.06, which is more than the satisfaction rating of CM of West Bengal, 52.06, who is also his vocal critic.

G7 summit

Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said the world is facing its biggest crisis since the two world wars amid the Covid pandemic. He was addressing a Bengaluru varsity’s silver jubilee celebration on Monday.

“Like the world changed pre and post world war, the same way pre and post Covid world will be different,” Modi said through a video link while inaugurating the 25 years celebration of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS).

Appreciating the efforts of the medical community, Modi said the root of India’s fight against Covid is the hard work of the medical community and the corona warriors.

“In fact doctors and medical workers are like soldiers but without the soldier’s uniform,” Modi said.

Karnataka Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa, Governor Vajubhai Vala, Medical Education Minister K. Sudhakar, Deputy Chief Minister C. N. Ashwathnarayan were among those who participated in the event.

Maintaining physical distance and wearing masks, the leaders sat far apart, listening to Modi speak on a giant screen.

“Participated in the silver jubilee celebrations of RGUHS along with Vala and Yediyurappa. Modi inaugurated the event and addressed the gathering,” tweeted Sudhakar.

Sudhakar said the prime minister will flag off the ‘Covid19 Innovation Challenge Hackathon’, a collaboration of talented minds from top institutes to showcase solutions.

The state government established the medical varsity through the Rajiv Gandhi Health Sciences University Act, 1994, with the objective of setting up a varsity for the purpose of proper, systematic education, teaching, training and research in modern medicine.

Govt to help people affected by locust attack

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday assured that those affected by the locust attacks in certain parts of the country will be helped by the government.

“Help will be given to all those affected by the locust attacks that have been taking place in the recent days,” Modi said in his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’.

The government said on May 28 that a total of 377 spots covering 53,997 hectares have been covered under locust control operations since April 11.

Locust control operations have been conducted in 11 districts of Rajasthan, 24 of Madhya Pradesh, three in Maharashtra, two each in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh, and one in Punjab.

As per the Locust Status Bulletin of May 27, several successive waves of locust invasions can be expected until July in Rajasthan with eastward surges across northern India as far as Bihar and Odisha, followed by westward movements and a return to Rajasthan with changing winds associated with the monsoon.

These movements will cease as swarms begin to breed and become less mobile. Swarms are less likely to reach south India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

BY PM NARENDRA MODI

Dear friends,

A year ago, a golden chapter was added to the history of Indian democracy. After decades, the people of the country gave a second opportunity to a government elected with a full majority. You have played a major role in writing this chapter. Today presents an opportunity for me to bow to you and honour you for your commitment to India and Indian democracy.

Had the situation been normal, I would have been blessed to be in your midst. However, the circumstances brought about by the global coronavirus pandemic have led me to write this letter and seek your blessings. In the past one year, your affection, blessings and active participation have given me fresh energy and inspiration. During this period, you have shown to the world democracy’s collective strength, which has become an example before the entire world.

In the year 2014, the people voted for a big change; you voted to change the policy and system (niti & reeti). In those five years, the country saw extricating itself from the quagmire of inertia and corruption. In those five years, the country inspired by Antyodaya has seen the change in governance in easing the lives of the poor.

In that tenure, on the one hand, the country’s prestige before the world grew, and on the other, we raised the dignity of the poor by opening their bank accounts, making available free cooking gas and electricity connection for them; and by building homes and toilets for them. In that tenure, whereas there were surgical and air strikes, there were also works for one-rank-one-pension, one-nation-one-tax GST and fulfillment of decades’ old demands involving procurement of crops under MSP for farmers. That tenure was dedicated to meeting several needs of the country.

In 2019, your blessings meant dreaming big for the country, for high hopes and for meeting the aspirations. The decisions taken in the last one year are the reflections of those big dreams. The people’s power fuelled by the common man is effulgently shining as the nation’s strength. In the past one year, the country had many dreams, many resolves as it also continuously took several steps towards realizing those goals.

In this historic journey, each community, each section and each individual has played one’s part responsibly. ‘Sabka sath, sabka vikas’ with this mantra, the country is forging ahead in all directions — social, economic, global or internal.

in the last one year, some important decisions have been in discussion, and that is why it is natural to for these achievements to linger on in our memory. Whether it was the topic of Article 370 for national unity and integrity, or the happy outcome of age-old conflict over the Ram temple construction, or the factor disrupting the modern social system, the ‘triple talaq’ or the symbol of India’s compassion, the citizenship law – all these achievements you remember.

Amid these decisions which came in quick succession, there are many other decisions and changes that have given new momentum to India’s development journey, have given us new objectives as we have strived to fulfill many expectations of the people. The constitution of the post of Chief of Defence Staff has led to increased coordination among armed forces. At the same time, India has accelerated its preparations for Mission Gaganyaan.

In this period, our priority has been to empower the poor, farmers, women and the youth.

Today, each farmer has been covered under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. In the last one year, under this scheme, over Rs 72,000 crore have been deposited in the bank accounts of more 9.5 crore farmers.

To make available piped drinking water for the country’s over 15 crore rural population, the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’ has been initiated.

To ensure better health care for our more than 50 crore cattle, a massive campaign for livestock vaccination is under way.

For the first time in the nation’s history, the government has decided to offer the facility of Rs 3,000 monthly pension for farmers, farm labourers, small shopkeepers and workers belonging to the unorganized sector after the age of 60 years.

A separate department has been formed to strengthen ‘blue economy’ and increase the facilities for fishermen. Similarly, it has been decided to constitute National Traders Board to timely resolve issues concerning business enterprises. About 7 crore sisters associated with self-help groups have been given more financial assistance. Recently, the loan amount available without guarantee for self-help groups has been doubled to Rs 20 lakh from Rs 10 lakh.

Keeping the education of tribals’ children in mind, a campaign is under way to build more than 450 Eklavya Model Residential Schools.

The government has also worked expeditiously towards making better laws linked with common man’s welfare. Our Parliament has broken decades’ old record in conducting legislative business. That’s why several laws – the Consumer Protection Act, amendment to Chit fund law, and laws concerning more security for women and children – have been quickly enacted.

The government policies have led to bridging the gulf between the urban and rural lives. For the first time, the internet users in rural areas have outnumbered the urban counterparts by 10 per cent.

The list of historic works and decisions is very long. It is not possible to elaborate on all of them in this letter. But I would surely say that in the last one year, each day round the clock, the government has worked with full awareness, sensitivity, and has taken decisions.

just when we were moving quickly towards realizing our country’s aspirations, the corona pandemic surrounded India too.

On the one hand, there are countries with massive economies and most modern health services, and on the other, there is India with its huge population and so many challenges. Many people had expressed their apprehensions that when corona would attack India, the country itself would become a trouble for the world. Today, all countrymen have changed the way they look at India. You have proved that your collective capability and capacity are unprecedented in comparison with other more resourceful and prosperous countries.

You have shown that India alone holds the guarantee for a greater and better India – whether it was collective clapping or thali-beating or lighting the lamps, whether it was honouring of corona warriors by the armed forces, or following the Janata curfew or following the lockdown rules with sincerity.

In this crisis, no one can claim that nobody has been put to trouble or inconvenience. Our workers, migrant brother and sister labourers, those working in small industries, cart pushers and vendors, our shopkeeper brothers and sisters and those having small businesses have suffered immensely. We all are working together in an attempt to sort out their problems.

But we have to be careful that these inconveniences should not transform into a crisis of life. For that, each Indian has to follow all directives. We have to move forward with the same patience and courage that we shown so far. This is the reason why the situation in India has so far been manageable in comparison with other countries.

This battle will stretch on, but we are on way to victory and, to be victorious is our common resolve.

We can draw inspiration from those people who recently faced the Cyclone Amphan boldly. They worked hard to reduce the damage caused by the cyclone.

under the given circumstances, there have been discussions as to how economies of India along with other nations will emerge out of the crisis. At the same time, there is this belief that the way India has surprised the world in facing coronavirus with its unity, the country can present the same example in the economic field — 130 crore Indians can not only surprise the world but can also inspire it.

Today, the time demands that we must stand on our feet, and we will have to move on our own strength. And for this, there is only one path: a self-reliant India (atmanirbhar Bharat). The recent economic package of Rs 20 lakh crore is a big step towards ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ campaign. This campaign will usher in a new trend of opportunities for every countryman – our farmers, workers and labourers, medium enterprises and the youth associated with startups. India will reduce its dependence on imports with the sweat of its citizens, with their hard work and skills, thus becoming self-dependent.

you have continued to bless me with your affection in the past six years. The country has moved ahead with unprecedented pace with historic decisions and development. But I know there is so much left to be done. The country has many challenges and problems before it. I am making all efforts day and night. I may have some deficiency, but the country does not have any. That is why I place more confidence in you, in your strength and in your capacity. You, your support and your blessings are the energy behind my resolve.

The global pandemic has brought about a crisis situation, but at the same time, for us Indians, this is also the time for determination. We have to remember that no calamity, no crisis can determine the present or future of 130 crore Indians. We will decide our present and, the future too.

We will move ahead, we will race ahead to progress and we will be victorious. It is said in our country: “Kritam me dakshine haste, jayo me savya ahita-h” – meaning, in one hand we carry our deeds and duties and in the other, sure success.

I bow before you yet again with a wish for our country’s success forever. Best wishes for you and your family. Be healthy, be safe. Be aware and be conscious.

Your Pradhan Sevak

Narendra Modi's book Letters to Mother

New Delhi:  “This is not an attempt at literary writing; the passages featured in this book are reflections of my observations and sometimes unprocessed thoughts; expressed without filter,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi writes in the foreword to his collection of poems, published as “Letters to Mother” by HarperCollins which will be released in June and is available for pre-order on e-commerce websites.

“I am not a writer, most of us are not; but everybody seeks expression, and when the urge to unload becomes overpowering there is no option but to take pen and paper, not necessarily to write but to introspect and unravel what is happening within the heart and the head and why,” Modi adds in the book, translated from Gujarati by award winning author Bhawana Somaaya.

Sample this excerpt from “Time Travels”:

Sometimes
Time tiptoes out of the room
Sometimes,
It spreads like a rock
On my chest
Weighs me down with its burden
I wasn’t aware
That time has thorns
It pokes and pierces
Bruises and bleeds this heart
Sometimes
Time is fragrant too
And gently, smoothly passes by
Exits without remnants of aroma
Without touch, without signs!
Man has forever trapped time
Within the hands of the clock
Assembled it in small
Structures and machines
And yet sometimes, somewhere
Time must feel restricted……

As a young man, Narendra Modi had got into the habit of writing a letter to the ‘Mother Goddess’, whom he addressed as ‘Jagat Janani’, every night before going to bed. The topics were varied: There were seething sorrows, fleeting joys and lingering memories.

But every few months, Modi would tear up the pages and consign them to a bonfire. However, the pages of one diary, dating back to 1986, survived, and are now available in English for the very first time.

“In my opinion Narendra Modi’s strength as a writer is his emotional quotient. There is a raw intensity, a simmering restlessness which he does not disguise and that is his attraction,” said Bhawana Somaaya, who has been a film critic for almost 40 years and has contributed columns to various publications.

An author of several books on cinema, Somaaya was awarded the Padma Shri in 2017. “Letters to Mother” is her 17th book.

Modi said that a Central team will be sent to the state soon to conduct a detailed survey of the damages caused by Amphan, adding that all aspects related to rehabilitation and reconstruction will be addressed. “We all want West Bengal to move ahead,” he said.

Earlier, as the Prime Minister landed in Bengal to take stock of the trail of destruction left behind by the severe cyclonic storm, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar came to receive him along with the senior state BJP leadership.

Modi and Banrejee then together conducted an aerial survey of the areas affected by Amphan, said to be the strongest super cyclone to have made a landfall in the Bay of Bengal area since 1999. They flew over the areas which have been submerged in water due to incessant rainfall.

On Thursday, Banerjee had said, “I would request Prime Minister Narendra Modi to come and visit the affected areas,” adding that she had never witnessed such a severe cyclone in her entire life.

Earlier, the Prime Minister had tweeted: “Have been seeing visuals from West Bengal on the devastation caused by Cyclone Amphan. In this challenging hour, the entire nation stands in solidarity with West Bengal. Praying for the well-being of the people of the state. Efforts are on to ensure normalcy.”

Modi will now take off for Odisha, which has also been badly hit by the cyclone.
