Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi: Political use of tribal peoples is dangerous

Chief Minister of Gujarat Mr. Narendra Modi said that some states are fighting Maoists and Naxals who are 'equipping tribals with arms’; State Government and Sukhi Parivar Foundation are trying to take tribals on the path of development, self-reliance and non-violence. Addressing a huge tribal crowd at Kavant, where Modi laid the foundation stone of Sukhi Parivar Dham by Sukhi Parivar Foundation – he said that Gani Rajendra Vijay is working hard with the tribals and these activities will uplift the social, educational, health and cultural status of tribal peoples. Modi said that with different development packages and schemes, he wanted to double the income of each tribal family and open up avenues for trade, health, education and other basic amenities at their doorstep.

Announcing a Rs. 5-crore model-marketing yard at Kavant, Modi dubbed it as the 'future hub of trading activities' in the eastern tribal belt that would attract customers from Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. He also announced the allocation of Rs. 4-crore for laying on a 14-km road connecting Kavant and Bhakha and Rs. 4.5-crore for construction of a bridge of Kathiwada, the only major link between the urban areas and the tribal belt of Vadodara district.

Mr. Modi also launched the book 'Yoga Ke Vyawharik Safal Prayog' written by Gani Rajendra Vijay and latest issue of 'Shri Vijay Inder Times' magazine.

Gachchadhipati Acharya Vijaya Nityanand Surishwar, Acharya Vijaya Virendra Surishwar, Acharya Vijaya Vasant Surishwar, Acharya Vijaya Lalitsen Surishwar headed the programme; over one lac people were present.

On this occasion Sukhi Parivar Abhiyan founder Gani Rajendra Vijay said that at present hunger, unemployment, poverty, illiteracy, communal differences and terrorism are major problems. “We are trying to solve these problems under the roof of Sukhi Parivar Movement. Today if we follow the truth and non-violence of Mahavir, Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi –definitely we can easily pass half journey. A nation will build on these basic principles. We hope that the Sukhi Parivar Dham will create some solid changes of the Adivasis’ lifestyle and their social status.”

According to Gani Rajendra Vijay, "The philosophy of non-violence (Ahimsa) has no meaning without the application of self discipline. If everyone believes in self-discipline, concurrence and philosophy of co-existence, then only the glorious form of ahimsa will be revealed and the real meaning of ahimsa will be understood by us. We realised that people involved in violence are highly organised and crimes are committed with great planning. But people who profess ahimsa and believe in it are scattered and spread. If we are unorganised, we cannot stop the violence. So it has become essential to organise the Ahimsa loving people to face the violent groups and stop them.

Our experience is that without training and development, the message of peace and non-violence cannot be applied. Therefore, "Sukhi Parivar Movement" is definitely a good programme. Through this movement, we are trying to send the message of non-violence, peace and prosperity to everyone, to develop moral standard and apply them in our day-to-day life.”

Ex-member of parliament of this area and state BJP vice president Mr. Ram Singh Bhai Rathawa welcomed the chief minister Mr. Narendra Modi. Health and Law minister Mr. Ashok Bhatt, Adivasi welfare minister Mr. Mangubhai Patel, State minister Mr. Jaswant Singh and others were guests on behalf of Sukhi Parivar Movement.

On his presidential speech the president of Sukhi Parivar Foundation Mr. Manish Jain said that we are doing to make a seven acre campus on this spot which will spend one crore rupees on different activities, like that a higher secondary school, hospital, old age home, child care home, spiritual centre and administrative room. He welcomed Mr. Narendra Modi by memento.

Secretary of Sukhi Parivar Foundation and Editor of Shri Vijay Inder Times Mr. Lalit Garg also welcomed Mr. Narendra Modi with flowers and shawl and presented him latest issues of publications.
