Chatra/Latehar/Daltonganj: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das attacked the Congress party while seeking vote for BJP candidates from Chatra and Palamu Lok Sabha seats and said that the party captured power in the name of removing poor while after coming to power it only protected the rich.
He said that the Congress party has a long association with scams and pointed the tenure from 2004-2014 during which a series of scams took place in the country. He said that the coalition government did not value any schemes for the poor but things have changed after 2014 and schemes meant for the poor are actually reaching to them.
Mr Das said that the elections of 2014 will decide the future of the country and the manner in which in 2014 the people had rejected the dynasty politics and handed over power to the son of a poor family similarly this time also they will vote for Modiji. He said that during the 10 years of Congress rule the work of NTPC in Tandwa was hampered and it was Prime Minister Modi who started the work of NTPC so that people could get direct and indirect employment.
Mr Das said that prior to 2014 Chatra was known for its Maoists but after a strong and stable government came into power the backbone of the Maoists has been broken in the state. He said that in the last four and half years of his rule in 30 lakh homes power has been provided while construction 117 grids and 257 substations were on in the state. He called upon the youth to accord priority to the nation first during casting their votes.
Later in Balumath and Manatu, he alleged that the Congress party considers the minorities only as their vote banks and said that on the other hand, the BJP does not indulge in politics of vote bank and casteism. BJP works for the nation and it is due to the efforts of the government that benefit of the schemes without any discrimination was reaching to the people from all sections of the society.
He said that in these areas which were once known for Maoists related incidents are now living in peace. He said that under the leadership of the Prime Minister the government has taken a pledge to remove the Maoists and asked the people to vote for the BJP as for the party the security of the people comes first.
Mr Das also attacked the JMM and said that the party had sold Jharkhand and said that now these people are talking about the welfare of the state and said that these have forged an alliance with Lalu Yadav who committed the fodder scam and added that all the corrupt people have gathered with the solve motive of removing Modi.
