It’s a gimmick: Congress on PM Modi’s ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan, Jai Anusandhaan’ slogan

NEW DELHI: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the 75th anniversary of India’s independence in which he added ‘Jai Anusandhaan (hail innovation)’ to the already existing slogan of ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan’, the Congress called it a gimmick.
In his speech on Monday, Modi said, “Till today we always remember our revered Lal Bahadur Shastri ji for his inspirational clarion call of ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’, meaning ‘Hail the Soldier, Hail the Farmer’. Later Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji added a new link of ‘Jai Vigyan’, which meant ‘hail science’ and we gave it utmost importance. But in this new phase of Amrit Kaal now it is imperative to add ‘Jai Anusandhaan’, that is ‘hail innovation’.”
Modi said he reposed his utmost faith in the youth of the nation. “Witness the power of indigenous innovations. Today we have many success stories to show to the world – UPI-BHIM, our digital payment, our compelling position in the domain of fintech (financial technology). Today in the world, 40 per cent of real time digital financial transactions are happening in my country. India has shown innovation prowess to the world,” the prime minister said.
However, the Congress called the slogan a gimmick. In a short video clip titled ‘Jumla vs Hakeekat’ (Gimmick versus reality), the principal opposition party refuted the claims of the government in all the four sectors.
The Congress, while posting defence minister Rajnath Singh’s picture, said the truth in the case of jawans (soldiers) was that there was no employment guarantee to Agniveers after four years of service.
The short-term recruitment to armed forces plan had run into rough weather earlier this year with youth violently protesting against it in different parts of the country, particularly in Bihar. They demanded permanent employment as Agniveers instead of for four years which the Agnipath scheme offered.
In the case of kisan (farmers), the Congress alleged that the Modi government had not provided any guarantee yet on minimum support price (MSP). It posted a picture of agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar to level the allegation.
Farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh had protested on three Delhi borders for a year against the three farm reform laws which were finally withdrawn by the Modi government.

The Congress criticised the government for ignoring vigyan (science). With a picture of finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman, the opposition party alleged that the Modi government has slashed the budget of the science and technology ministry by 3.9 per cent
While Modi added anusandhaan (innovation) in the ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan’ slogan, the Congress alleged that it was merely lip service.
The party said, “GST (Goods and Services Tax) on scientific equipment necessary for research has been increased from 5 per cent to 18 per cent.”
Shortly after PM Modi’s Independence Day speech on Monday, the Congress had criticised him, particularly over his remarks on corruption and nepotism.
