Bharuch: According to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, “Urban Naxals” are attempting to enter Gujarat by changing their look, but the state will not permit them to endanger the lives of children.
After laying the cornerstone for the nation’s first bulk drug park in Gujarat’s Bharuch district, PM Modi made his remarks.
“With fresh appearances, urban naxals are attempting to infiltrate the state. Their attire has been modified. Our dynamic and innocent youth are being misled into joining them, “In a covert attack on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is attempting to gain ground in Gujarat ahead of the state Assembly elections scheduled for later this year, Modi added.
“From above, the Urban Naxals are descending. They won’t harm the future of our young generation, we promise. We need to educate our youngsters about the Urban Naxals, who have vowed to destroy the nation. They are spies for foreign governments. Gujarat will not submit to them; Gujarat will obliterate them “stated PM Modi.
The Indian economy was rated 10th in the world
According to PM Modi, the Indian economy was rated 10th in the world when he became prime minister in 2014, but it is now in fifth place. The Prime Minister was addressing following the laying of the cornerstone for the nation’s first bulk drug park in the Bharuch region of Gujarat.
According to a government statement, the project will be crucial in securing import substitution and achieving India’s independence for bulk medications, which constituted more than 60% of the country’s total pharmaceutical imports in 2021–22.
Urban Naxals are attempting to enter the state with new appearances, according to Modi. Their attire has been modified. Our naive and enthusiastic youth are being duped into following them.
From above, the Urban Naxals are descending. They won’t harm the future of our children, we promise. We need to educate our youngsters about the Urban Naxals, who have vowed to destroy the nation. They are spies for foreign governments. In a subtle jab at the Aam Aadmi Party, he declared that Gujarat would not submit to them and would instead demolish them (AAP).
The BJP-ruled state of Gujarat, where the Assembly elections are scheduled for later this year, is a target for the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP’s advances. Some political ideologies frequently refer to social activists and Naxalism sympathisers as “urban naxals” in order to denote their affiliation with the movement.
“Urban Naxals and anti-development groups”
According to PM Modi, “those with Naxal mentality” made every effort to halt the construction of the Sardar Sarovar dam. He said last month that “urban Naxals and anti-development groups” with government support had long halted the construction of the Sardar Sarovar project in Gujarat due to a campaign claiming it would be harmful to the environment.
Bhupendra Patel, the chief minister of Gujarat, previously claimed that “urban Naxals” opposed the construction of the Sardar Sarovar dam. He had referred to Medha Patkar, a leader of the Narmada Bachao Andolan and an activist, as a “urban Naxal.”
Notably, Patkar ran as an AAP candidate from Mumbai North East in the unsuccessful 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Modi remarked on Monday, “I had to specifically inform our adivasi brothers that the Naxal movement began in (West) Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, some regions of Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, and Gadchiroli in Maharashtra, among other places. Our young adivasi people are losing their lives to naxalism.”
There was a crisis everywhere, he claimed, adding that they forced them to grasp firearms and provoked them. When he was Gujarat’s chief minister, according to Modi, he had the problem of preventing the rise of Naxalism.

“I had to safeguard the lives of our adivasi brothers and sisters who reside throughout Gujarat’s eastern region, from Ambaji to Umargam. To make sure they weren’t affected by a condition like this, I had to put in a lot of effort. And in response, we undertook the mission of developing tribal areas “stated Modi.
“Naxalism was unable to infiltrate in this way”
The PM claimed that he could affirm, with confidence, that the state’s indigenous people paid attention to and trusted him. “As a result, Naxalism was unable to infiltrate in this way”. I thank and am grateful to our adivasi brothers and sisters for this “stated Modi.
“Many of them are awarded scholarships. Birsa Munda Tribal University and Govind Guru University are two universities that bear adivasi names. For our adivasi kids today, new confidence and opportunity have emerged “added he.
When asked why India’s economy is now ranked fifth rather than tenth, Modi credited the efforts of all Indians, particularly the younger generation, farmers, labourers, small business owners, and industrialists. Prior to his appointment as prime minister in 2014, India’s economy was ranked tenth.
He claimed that the younger generation, as well as farmers, workers, small company owners, and small industrialists, all deserve fame for this. He continued, “When the nation has moved up to fifth (place) from tenth, then the rights belong to you and your labour.”
Bharuch for its role in the growth of Gujarat and India
PM Modi also praised the district of Bharuch for its role in the growth of Gujarat and India. The nation’s first bulk drug park will be established in Gujarat, and that too in Bharuch, he added, adding that “today, my Bharuch is recognised for industry, trade, and ports.”
In addition, he said that the Ankleshwar airport (in the Bharuch district) was being built now despite his attempts to have it built however, “guys from Bharuch who were sitting in Delhi did not listen” to him while he was Gujarat’s chief minister.
Compared to several of the nation’s tiny states, Bharuch has more industry. According to him, the quantity of jobs offered by Bharuch is a record in and of itself.
