Narendra Modi in M'lore: Congress has destroyed the country

After wooing the crowds in Davangere, BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi addressed a rally here. Earlier today, Modi in his speech in Devangere criticised the Congress party for ignoring farmers issues and women's security.

We are a nation of mouse charmers, says Modi Praising the IT field in Karnataka, Modi said: We used to be a nation of snake charmers now we are a nation of mouse charmers. However the IT sector has become stagnant." Warning the youth in the IT sector Modi said that we must not be stuck in low end technology. " We must aim for high end technology too. There is nothing today in world without technology. We must work in the direction where we can make use of this technology," he said. "We don't export talent, we export labour. Unless we don't export both talent and labour, we will be stuck in low end outsource," he said. Modi said that the tourism in the country needed a boost in order to lure high cost tourists. "Small markets like Korea, Bangladesh and Taiwan have taken over a nation like ours that produces and exports cotton," he said. Attacking the Congress, Modi said that though the Congress had promised in 2009 Parliament to give employment to one member in each family. "The Congress did not fulfill that promise, they were blinded with arrogance. Where will our youth go if they do not have jobs. Our priority must be to provide employment to the youth," he said. Congress has no model, no initiative to provide employment. "SC raps the Congress government almost everyday. The country won't be free from corruption till we vote Congress out," he said. "I am asking for your vote for development. We need to fight the elections for the country, not for an individual not for a party," he said.

Narendra Modi praises Mangalore Praising the people of Mangalore, Modi said that the region had given many banks to the country. "Coastal states and districts need a special policy for their development. Just one tailor made solution will not help in the country's progress. Keeping in mind their needs, a separate vision is needed for these regions," he said. "Port development is not going to work, port lead development is what we need. The fishing community needs to be empowered by technology. If satellite technology is used it will save their time. I have implemented the same in Gujarat with success," he said. "It is the time that we accept urbanisation as opportunity. The Centre rejected urbanisation, but we must accept urbanisation. We need to change the face of infrastructure. Just roads, airports not sufficient. The quality of lighting used in these places is necessary," he said. He added that a network to transmit electricity from surplus states needs to be established.

Review: Salam Kashmir, a disappointing fare

If a piece of art is meant to be an aesthetic manifestation of life, it should be. And convincingly too. If it doesn’t arrest senses or conform to the sensibilities of a viewer it would not only be coming under the blade of criticism but also be committing the cardinal sin of deceiving the audience. Salam Kashmir, directed by Joshiy, is an example.
