New Delhi:

With 2019 Lok Sabha Elections knocking on the doors, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has intensified its poll campaigns across India. After addressing a public gathering in Bihar's capital city Patna, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has now reached Uttar Pradesh's Amethi, the parliamentary constituency of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, to launch a Kalashnikov rifles manufacturing facility. During his visit, Modi has unveiled several other development projects for Amethi and the region. At Kauhar in Amethi, the PM has dedicated the Indo-Russia Rifles Pvt Limited to the nation. The Indo-Russia Rifles Pvt Ltd is a joint venture between India's Ordnance factory and a Russian firm. It will produce the last series of Kalashnikov rifles in the Korwa Ordnance Factory.

Besides, Modi inaugurated and laid foundation stone for several other welfare projects in power generation, education, health and manufacturing sectors. These projects will directly benefit the Amethi region. Modi also addressed a public gathering at Kauhar while giving the list of achievements of the BJP-led NDA government in the last five years. Other prominent figures who took part in the rally include Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Union minister Smriti Irani, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath among others.

Here are the Highlights from PM Modi's address in Amethi:

Russian President: New joint venture will produce Kalashnikov AR's of newest 200 series and eventually reach full localization of production. Thus, Indian defence-industrial sector will have opportunity to fulfill needs of national security agencies in this category of small arms.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Amethi: We might have lost election here but we won your hearts. In last 5 years, Smriti ji has worked so hard for development of this region. She never made you feel whether you made her win or lose, she worked more than the person who won here.

Be it a farmer, a young man, today you are able to work with full credentials because you have the power of a vote, says Modi.

Our government came and stamped the Rafale deal within 1.5 years and within a few months the first Rafael aircraft will be in the Indian sky: PM Modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Amethi: Some people have the habit of forgetting the public after getting votes. They want to keep the poor in poverty so they can say 'gareebi hatao' generation after generation. We are giving strength to the poor to bring them out of poverty.

Our brave security personnel were made to face the enemy without bulletproof jackets. The previous govts made our forces wait for modern ammunition and fighter aircraft, says the prime minister.

The factory of Korba was built to create modern rifles, but it has never been used for its full potential: PM Modi.

The previous government had left no stone unturned to play with the security of our armed forces: PM Narendra Modi.

Not only this, they could not even managed to make the land available for the building of the factory, says the prime minister.

But the previous government could not even decide what kind of weapon should be created at the Ordinance Factory in Amethi: PM Modi's fresh salvo at the Congress.

For the sake of the country's security, our army had in 2005 brought the needs of modern weapon to the notice of then government. When your MPs made its foundation in 2007, it was said that work will begin in the year 2010: PM Modi in Amethi.

'Made in Amethi' AK-203s will be of great help to our forces in fighting terrorists and Naxals: PM Modi.

Some people roam around the country and make speeches like - Made in Ujjain, Made in Jaisalmer, Made in Baroda. But this is Modi, rifles which will be manufactured here will now be known as #MadeInAmethi.

NDA Government is committed to Amethi’s progress: PM Modi at Rahul Gandhi's traditional baston.

PM Modi in Amethi: One of the most advanced rifles in world AK-203 will be made in Amethi. It will be made by a joint-venture of India & Russia. I express my gratitude to my friend President Vladimir Putin, this venture was made possible in such a short time by his support.

I am here for those who voted for us and also for those who did not, says the prime minister.

During 2014 we had said - 'Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas' and Amethi is a good example of that motto our government: PM Modi.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Amethi: Those who should have been concerned about Amethi did not do anything. With efforts of PM Modi, now AK-203 modern rifles will be made at Korwa, Amethi. This is the fruit of the Prime Minister's efforts since the last one year.
