New Delhi, 12 July

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that “shortcut politics” based on populist promises can destroy the country.

Addressing a BJP rally in Jharkhand’s Deoghar after inaugurating the Rs 400-crore Deoghar airport, the prime minister said it was important that people recognize the “challenge” posed by shortcut politics. The PM said, ‘Attractive promises are made to get votes.

“Politicians who take shortcuts to success do not believe in hard work and worry about the long-term consequences of their actions. Until we complete 100 years of independence, only hard work can take India to new heights.

Without naming the Congress, PM Modi said the party, which has been in power for the longest time since independence, often resorts to “shortcuts”. “Many countries which gained independence around the same time as India are doing much better than us as a result of such shortcuts,” the PM said.

PM Modi said that delays in projects are no longer normal. “I had laid the foundation stone of this airport four years ago and today it has become operational,” the PM said.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren and Union Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia were among the dignitaries present at the function. The PM also laid stones for several other road, rail and power projects worth over Rs 16,000 crore. He said the new initiative would go a long way in boosting development in eastern India. Referring to the religious importance of Deoghar, the PM said infrastructure development in the area would lead to an increase in the number of people. PM Modi said, ‘This will benefit the local economy.
