He said the people were well aware of the intentions of the Congress party and had started calling it a bail gaadi'.
It is unfortunate that political opponents also committed a sin by raising questions on the capabilities of the Army. This has never happened before and the people will not forgive those who are doing this kind of politics, he said.
The prime minister laid the foundation stones symbolically, through remote from the Amrudon ka Bagh rally venue for 13 projects worth Rs 2,100 crore in various districts of the state.
Criticising the Congress, he said the parties following the politics of family and dynasty may continue like that but the BJP government was committed to taking the country's defence and self-respect to their pinnacle.
The country today is at a crucial stage. We have started moving towards a new direction and I believe that the government, with the cooperation of you all, will gain success in fulfilling its commitments, he said.
Without taking names, the prime minister said some people get disturbed on hearing the name of the BJP.
Such people hate this kind of programmes but the common people get to know about the government's schemes and programmes through such events, he said about the rally he was addressing.
Information about the schemes and programmes reaches the masses and this creates awareness among the public, and also creates pressure on the government machinery, he said.
He said the BJP government's only agenda was development, unlike that of the previous Congress government whose leaders were bothered only about installing plaques with their names for projects.
He cited the example of the oil refinery in Barmer, suggesting that the Congress government did little on it while the project picked up only when the BJP came to power.
He said the poor, the underprivileged, farmers and women have been at the centre of the schemes which the government has introduced in the last four years.
He mentioned Jan Dhan Yojna, crop insurance scheme, housing schemes, Ujjawala Yojna, Mudra scheme and the soil health card.
He also talked about the recent hike in the minimum support price of farm produce.
Recorded statements of the beneficiaries were played out at the beginning of the public meeting.
Later, the same people met the prime minister on the dais. Groups of farmers also met him.
