While addressing the ‘Viksit Bharat Viksit Madhya Pradesh’ programme, the prime minister expressed his grief on the Dindori road mishap and ensured all possible efforts for those injured in the accident. 

PM Modi said, “A few days ago, the redevelopment work on more than 30 railway stations of Madhya Pradesh started. The BJP's double-engine government is ensuring development at double speed. The schemes unveiled today will bring ease in the lives of people in Madhya Pradesh. More investment and employment opportunities will come in the state."

PM Modi said under the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Centre, the "land brought under the irrigation doubled in comparision to the Congress-led UPA from 2004 to 2014."

The prime minister said the 'double-engine government is stressing on farming, business & tourism...What can be a bigger 'seva' when water reaches the farms of the farmers?"

“The Sinchayee Yojana is the biggest differentiator between BJP and Congress in 10 years. Before 2014, a total of 40 lakh hectare of land was brought under the Sukshma Sinchai (irrigation) whereas a total of 90 hectare of land was brought in the last 10 years. This shows the priorities of the BJP government."

He further stated that the BJP is fighting the upcoming Lok Sabha elections with a "resolve to make India the third largest economy of the world".

"For us, these elections are not just to form our government for the third time. In our third tenure, we will make this country the third largest economy in the world. With this resolve, we are contesting the upcoming elections. Formation of the government is not our final goal," he said.
