‘Apno Rajasthan – Sujhav Aapka-Sankalp Hamara’ campaign launched
BJP National President Shri JP Nadda on 04 October, 2023 said the BJP had transformed the culture of politics with Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s report cards. Promises made were fulfilled. “Whatever we said, we have done. We have also delivered what we did not pledge,” he said.
Shri Nadda was addressing a huge gathering of BJP Karyakartas at B.M. Birla Auditorium in Jaipur before the launch of party’s ‘Apno Rajasthan- Sujhav Aapka Sankalp Hamara’ campaign seeking suggestions from people for the party’s manifesto for the upcoming Assembly election in Rajasthan.
The Congress promoted a culture of making attractive promises, forgetting them after elections and then contesting the next polls with a new set of promises, Shri Nadda said, affirming that all of this had changed under the BJP’s rule at the Centre. Report card politics had ensured people’s welfare in the true spirit, he added.
Empower the poor
The BJP National President said Congress rule was synonymous with “loot, appeasement and corruption”, while his party intended to empower the poor and destitute, protect women, secure the future of the youth and spread prosperity amongst farmers. The BJP was serving the people with good governance and honest service, he said. The purpose of soliciting people’s opinion was to set a target for the future through the election manifesto, rather than presenting it just as a political document, Shri Nadda said before flagging off the Raths which will collect suggestions from the public.
To collect suggestions from the public
Fifty-one trucks converted into chariots will visit the tehsil headquarters in all districts to get suggestions. A toll-free telephone number and a dedicated web portal for collecting suggestions were also launched on the occasion. The Raths will visit the tehsil headquarters in all districts to get suggestions.
Hundreds of saffron-colour bikes were given to the party workers to travel along with the Rath with each vehicle annexed with a box in which the public can put their written opinions. This is BJP’s fourth campaign after Jan Aakrosh Yatra, Nahi Sahega Rajasthan, and Parivartan Sankalp Yatra to connect voters from far-flung areas of the state.
Rajasthan will become stronger with your suggestions
Speaking to party workers Shri Nadda further said, “Rajasthan will become stronger with your suggestions. This resolution letter is not a document at all. This is our goal, which we have to accomplish. Congress ruled for a long time. The culture of Congress was that their leaders would apply lime in the forest and tell the public that a road would emerge from there. The innocent public accepted it in elections only to feel cheated later,” he observed.
Criticizing the Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s “Mission-2030” whose posters and banners are displayed on city roads, Shri JP Nadda categorically said, “Gehlot Saheb, 2023 comes before 2030. Have you forgotten the count? Gehlot Saheb, you will get Gulati.” Union Minister and convener of the BJP’s manifesto committee, Shri Arjun Ram Meghwal, explained the process of getting ideas and suggestions from different sections of society and incorporating them into the document.
Among others, BJP in-charge for Rajasthan Shri Arun Singh, BJP State President Shri C.P. Joshi, former Chief Minister Smt. Vasundhara Raje, Leader of Opposition Shri Rajendra Rathore and Deputy Leader of Opposition Shri Satish Poonia joined Shri JP Nadda during the flag-off ceremony.
