My press release during visit to Palghar Loksabha Constituency in Maharashtra:

Shri Naqvi said that the Narendra Modi Government has adopted a policy of “zero tolerance’’ against terrorism and the terrorists and their masters are disappointed and nervous. Any anti-India activity will not be tolerated.

Shri Naqvi said that terrorism and radicalism are the biggest enemies of the humanity. Terrorism and radicalism have become the biggest challenge to world peace and prosperity. There is a need for united efforts at global level to defeat these evil forces.

Under Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s initiative to connect with the people at grass root level, Shri Naqvi interacted with the people at various places in Palghar. Shri Naqvi visited Manor, Talasari, Boisar, Vikramgarh, and Dhekale on January 7 and 8. Shri Naqvi informed the people about various welfare schemes of the Central Government and also listened to problems of the people. During public meetings and “Jan-Panchayat” with farmers, tribals, minorities, youths, women and industrialists, Shri Naqvi asked them to give suggestions for the next General Budget.

Shri Naqvi said that the Modi Government’s “passion and commitment” to empowerment of poor people, farmers, and youths has been converting into “ground reality”.

Shri Naqvisaid that the Narendra Modi has been taking the “strong-effective-transparent” welfare schemes to the villages, farmers, poor people, weaker sections, youths and women for their socio-economic-educational empowerment. These include schemes such as “Jan Dhan Yojana”, “Atal Pension Yojana”, schemes for life insurance and social security, “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”, “Sukanya Yojana”, “Digital India”, “Skill India”, “Make in India”, “Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan”, “Pradhanmantri Mudra Yojana”, “Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana” etc.
