Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Karnataka on 29th October 2017 and expressed his optimistic and transformative vision for the nation. Addressing three public meetings in the course of the day, the PM began his visit to the state by offering prayers at the Shri Manjunatha Swamy Temple at Dharmasthala. At a public meeting at Ujire, the Prime Minister distributed RuPay cards to Jan Dhan Yojana account holders in order to enable the Self Help groups to usher in digital transactions. He unveiled a logo to mark the launch of “Preserve Mother Earth, and Transfer to Next Generation” programme.

Brining transparency and assurance in the minds, the PM asserted “Every rupee and every resource from the Government of India is devoted for the welfare of Indians. We are ensuring that the fruits of development reach the intended beneficiaries without any scope of corruption”.

The PM laid special emphasis on the conversation of water which is a major challenge in this day and age. He said, ‘’We also need to give importance towards living in harmony with nature and not think about short term gains’’. He called upon the farmers of Karnataka to embrace methods like drip irrigation that help conserve water.

Later the PM attended the Dashamah Soundarya Lahari Parayanotsava Mahasamarpane at Bengaluru. Imbibing in the mass chanting of Soundaraya Lahari, the Prime Minister felt a special energy in the environment.  He said Adi Shankaracharya’s penance still exists in the present form of Indian culture, a culture that accepts all and moves forward together. This culture is the foundation of New India and follows the mantra of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.

The day concluded with a remarkable launch where the Prime Minister dedicated the Bidar – Kalaburagi new railway line to the nation by unveiling a plaque at Bidar Railway Station. At the event, he also flagged off the DEMU Service between Bidar and Kalaburagi. The track of progress and prosperity connects economically significant nodes.

Recognizing the need of the hour, the PM on his state visit urged the people to make efforts to free India from evils such as illiteracy, ignorance, malnutrition, black money and corruption.
