Mr Shah accused the JMM and Congress combine of indulging in scams worth crores whereas not a single allegation of corruption has been levelled on Chief Minister Raghubar Das. He said that Chatra was hit by maoists menace and prior to BJP government people even could not take into villages marriage procession whereas even at the midnight people are participating in marriage functions and the maoists do not have the courage to attack them.
The Union Home Minister said that BJP government has buried naxalism 20 feet below the ground. He also offered his tributes to the martyrs of Latehar ambush and said that the blood of the martyrs will not go waste as naxals will be uprooted from the state forever.
