Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah paid floral tributes to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya on his birth anniversary today. Shri Amit Shah said, “My humble tributes to the heroic son of Mother India, an epitome of simplicity and the pioneer of progressive politics in the country, Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya ji, on his birth anniversary.”
“For the last 6 years, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has been carrying forward the poor welfare policy of ‘Antyodaya’ based on Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya’s vision. Under this policy, Modi Government is providing cooking gas, electricity, toilets, houses and health facilities to 60 crore poor households.”
Shri Amit Shah said, “Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya ji gave birth to a new ideology soon after Independence, at a time when policies were being framed and the nation had begun its journey. Instead of blindly emulating the West, his thought was deeply rooted in Indian ethos.”
“Deen Dayal ji’s contribution towards the development of the country, especially towards welfare of the poor and our politics will always be remembered. His thoughts, ideals and dedication towards the welfare of the society will continue to inspire all countrymen towards the service of the nation in the times to come”, said Shri Amit Shah.
