Parivartan Yatra flagged off in Chhattisgarh

BJP National President Shri JP Nadda flagged off the second ‘Parivartan Yatra’ from Jashpur, Chhattisgarh after offering prayers at Balaji temple on 15 September 2023. Before flagging off the yatra, Shri JP Nadda addressed a huge public meeting at Ranjita stadium in Jashpur town. With it the party intensified its campaign against the ruling Congress ahead of the upcoming assembly polls.

According to BJP state in-charge Shri Om Mathur, the Parivartan Yatras are aimed at raising public awareness and exposing the massive corruption of the Congress government. Besides, people will also be apprised about the public welfare schemes of the Modi government at the Centre.

He said the first yatra which was launched by PM Shri Narendra Modi just a day before of this yatra, will cover 1,728 km visiting Bastar, Durg and Raipur divisions in 16 days while the second yatra will cover 1,261 km in 13 days in the Bilaspur and Surguja divisions. Both the Yatras, which will see 84 public meetings, 85 ‘swagat sabhas’ and seven road shows, will culminate in Bilaspur on the same day after collectively covering a distance of 2,989 km across 87 assembly segments (out of the total 90).

Addressing a huge public meeting in Jashpur town, BJP National President Shri JP Nadda hit out at the opposition coalition INDIA and said the agenda of the Congress leadership intends to disrespect and abuse Sanatan Dharma.

He asked Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel to make his stand clear on anti-Sanatan Dharma comments given by Udhayanidhi Stalin, whose party DMK is a member of I.N.D.I.A bloc. Regarding recent controversies over ‘Sanatan Dharma,’ Shri Nadda mentioned that the I.N.D.I.A alliance had a meeting on August 1, where, on August 3, Tamil Nadu chief minister’s son compared Sanatan culture to dengue, malaria, and COVID. On August 4, Congress President Mallikarjuna Kharge’s son also criticized Sanatan Dharma.

The BJP National President said Sonia Gandhi is also silent on the issue and Rahul visits all over the world and talks about the Constitution but didn’t utter anything on remarks against Sanatan Dharma. He criticised the Congress for promoting hatred and said, “Actually, the Congress party has opened the shop of hatred, not the shop of ‘Mohabbat’”.

Shri JP Nadda said the Congress government in Chhattisgarh failed to keep the promises made to the people and engaged in massive corrupt practices. He said the Congress government had deceived the people of the state by not fulfilling the promises mentioned in its manifesto. The Congress had pledged to provide Rs 500 to women and four LPG cylinders to the poor. They had also promised land for tribals, which remains unfulfilled. He also criticized CM Baghel for not responding to the President’s invitation to the G20 summit.

Shri Nadda appealed to the Karyakartas to follow in the footsteps of Late Shri Dilip Singh Judeo, who, during the 2003 Parivartan Yatra, took on the challenge of dethroning the Congress and succeeded.

The BJP National President stated that the second Parivartan Yatra would cover 40 assembly constituencies and culminate in Bilaspur, along with the first Yatra, which was launched from Dantewada on September 12. He added that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi would address a public rally when both yatras will conclude in Bilaspur.
