Hyderabad,24th June 2023: Sounding the poll bugle in election-bound Chhattisgarh, BJP’s principal poll strategist Sounding the poll bugle in election-bound Chhattisgarh, BJP’s principal poll strategist Amit Shah on Thursday made a scathing attack on the ruling Congress party in Chhattisgarh, saying it is neck-deep in corruption and never keeps its promises.
Addressing a rally at Durg to highlight the achievements of the Modi government in
the last nine years, Shah said the Bhupesh Baghel government in the state has not
only forgotten all promises, but it is also doing volte face in some cases. Instead of
banning liquor in the state, a home delivery system has been introduced in the state.
Contrary to its promise to provide jobs for millions, the Baghel government has failed
to create job opportunities for the state’s youth, Shah said, adding that the state’s
debt has mounted to over Rs one lakh crore during the regime of the current
dispensation. It has failed to even pay the Poor farmers their dues.
Thousands attended Shah’s rally. Enthused by the huge turnout, Shah said, “The
massive turnout of people here is proof that the countdown of the end of the
Congress government has begun. The Congress-led government has failed in all
BJP got 10 out of 11 seats in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and all 11 seats in 2019.
In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections also, the people of Chhattisgarh will once again
play an important role in making Modi Ji the Prime Minister for the third time in a row,
Criticising the Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh-led Congress government at the
Centre that ruled for 10 years, Shah said during their tenure corruption was rampant.
"The Congress was involved in corruption of Rs 12 lakh crore, but there is not a
single stain of corruption on the Modi government. Even the opposition cannot
accuse the Modi government of corruption,” Shah said.
Shah also lambasted the Baghel government for indulging in a number of scams and
not spending the amount gotten from different cesses and taxes meant for the
welfare of the Poor.
Shah also attacked the Congress for nourishing Article 370 for 70 long years and for
doing virtually nothing to counter growing instances of terrorism in Jammu &
“Nine years ago, terrorists from Pakistan used to intrude on India's land and killed
our soldiers, but the then Congress government remained silent. After Modi ji
became the Prime Minister, Pakistan tried to do the same. But, within 10 days, we
gave a befitting reply to Pakistan with surgical strike and air strike,” Shah said.
