‘Sampark Se Samarthan’ rally in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh

Addressing a massive public meeting at Bilaspur Chhattisgarh as part of BJP’s ‘Sampark Se Samarthan’ campaign, BJP National President Shri JP Nadda on 30 June, 2023 mounted a blistering attack on the Bhupesh Baghel led Congress government in Chhattisgarh for rampant corruption in the state.

Keep Congress government away from power

Shri Nadda said, “has the coal scam occurred or not? Was the commission taken on coal transportation or not? Was the chief minister Bhupesh Baghel’s deputy secretary imprisoned or not? Is illegal sand mining taking place or not? Has there been a liquor scam or not? Did 10,000 tons of rice meant for the poor disappear from the market or not? And was corruption committed in the Godhan scheme or not?”

“Bhupesh Baghel led Congress government is fully immersed in corruption. Whatever corruption is occurring; it is happening with political patronage. He has merely changed the names of BJP government schemes,” Shri Nadda said.

Extreme poverty reduced to less than 1%

Throwing light on the achievements of the Modi government during the last nine years, the BJP National President said the poverty rate in India has decreased from 22% to 10%, while extreme poverty has reduced to less than 1%. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has constructed houses for double the population of Australia under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, he said.

Toilets have been built for approximately 120 million women in India, and gas connections have been provided to 9.5 crore under the Ujjwala scheme.

BJP has a special connection to Chhattisgarh

Referring to Chhattisgarh, he said the state was developing when the BJP government under Dr. Raman Singh was the chief minister. The BJP has a special connection to this state as former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee established the state of Chhattisgarh. Rapid development took place under the leadership of Raman Singh, he said.

Centre is undertaking many initiatives

Referring to the Modi government, he mentioned that the central government is undertaking many initiatives in the interest of the common people. When the nation was gripped by the Corona pandemic, the Modi government successfully developed two vaccines within a record nine months. People received 2.2 billion double dose vaccines, free of cost. This year, 10 trillion rupees will be spent solely on infrastructure. A total of 1,590 kilometres of National Highway has been constructed in Chhattisgarh, he said.

India’s economy remained strong

The BJP National President mentioned that even during the global recession, India’s economy remained strong. India’s GDP stands at 8.7%, which is healthier than that of many developed nations. While there have been conflicts in Ukraine and inflation in the world, India has an inflation rate of 4.2%, which is lower than that of many developed nations. Today, India is emerging as an economic superpower, surpassing several developed nations, he said.
