Can you imagine a 900 per cent increase in five years? This can never happen. And Congress left the budget at Rs 94,000 crore five years ago, which has been increased to Rs 2.12 lakh crore by the BJP. Revenue was Rs 52,000 crore, which increased to Rs 1.03 lakh crore. Per capita income was Rs 61,000 which has been increased to Rs 76,000 in five years.”

Amit Shah holds Roadshow in Bikaner
Bharatiya Janata Party National President Shri Amit Shah on 21 November held a massive roadshow in Bikaner, Rajasthan.
Addressing on the occasion the BJP President said, the BJP Karyakartas must ask Congress workers about their performance in the state and seek accountability. “Friends, I appeal to all of you, whenever you see a Congress member seeking votes, hold him by his collar and ask him, what gives you the right to come to us?”
