BJP National Working President Shri J P Nadda on 04th December, 2019 alleged that while the Congress promoted casteism to divide the society, the BJP’s only objective is to serve the poor. Addressing a poll meeting in support of party candidate Deb Kumar Dhan from Mandar (ST) constituency, Shri Nadda said, “The Congress spreads casteism and divides the society. But the BJP and Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji have only one caste-the poor and serving them.”
He also took potshots at JMM, involved in the movement for the creation of the separate state of Jharkhand, joining hands with the Congress which opposed statehood. “Now the two parties have joined hands as they want the Kursi’ (CM chair). They can’t remain without power, and you should keep them out of power for the development of Jharkhand,” he exhorted the voters.
Appealing to the people to vote for the BJP to continue the developmental works in the state, Shri JP Nadda said the “double-engine” governments in Delhi and Ranchi meant the state government adds additional benefits to the central schemes.
“For example, under Ujjwala Yojana, the Centre gives one gas cylinder free of cost while Jharkhand gives two free of cost cylinders along with oven; under PM-Kisan Saman Nidhi, the Centre provides Rs 6000 to farmers every year while the Jharkhand government gives up to Rs 25,000 every year to farmers, making it a maximum of Rs 31,000,” Shri Nadda said.
Listing out similar welfare schemes, the Working President said Jharkhand has thirty lakh BPL families while the Raghubar Das government covered 57 lakh families under the “Ayushman Bharat” scheme.
He said India’s stature in the world has grown and cited examples as to how the U.S. President Donald Trump joined PM at the “Howdy Modi” event at Houston while China President Xi Jinping met PM Shri Modi at Mahabalipuram and discussed issues of mutual interests.
