“PM Modi’s mission to make India a $5 trillion economy. Karnataka has decided to contribute US$1.25 trillion to the Indian economy. We all have to make an effort to make this contribution. We have to work 20 hours a day. The economy isn’t just about the money, it’s about the energy and people’s work,” Bommai said.

He further said that PM Modi has a special affection for the cultural capital of Mysuru, which is why he has been eager to come to Mysuru for the International Yoga Day for many years.

“His determination to celebrate the day here in Mysuru demonstrates his special love for Mysuru. India has seen many prime ministers, but Modi is the prime minister of the people. Impressed with his work during his tenure as Chief Minister of Gujarat, the people of the country wanted him to be Prime Minister,” he said.

Bommai said PM Modi completed eight years as prime minister in his 20 years in public life, adding that previous prime ministers were interested in power politics, but PM Modi has dedicated himself to politics for the common good.

He further said that PM Modi committed to ideology and development policy.

“Welfare schemes like Swach Bharat, Ayushman Bharat, Kissan Samman, Prime Minister Awas Yojana, Mudra Loan Scheme and Ujwala Yojana are dedicated to the welfare of the common man. ‘ Bommai said.

The premier said that this is a two-engine government that is effectively implementing the central government’s plans, and assured that it is committed to the overall development of Mysuru.

He said that Mysuru Tourism Circuit would start this year, Mysuru airport expansion project was approved, Rs 89 crore grant was provided for KR hospital modernization, Mysuru dormitory for working women will be built, knowledge-based Industries would be established in Mysuru.

“I have full confidence that in the coming days you will strengthen Modi’s hands and bring the twin-engine government back to power to keep the development work going,” Bommai said.

Earlier, the prime minister enumerated the welfare programs implemented by the central government over the past eight years, saying they had “delivered social justice with effective last mile delivery”.

The Prime Minister noted that the idea behind any government program is to prioritize delivery in all parts and corners of the country.
