Bharatiya Janata Party national president Amit Shah, in his maiden visit to the state, on Saturday claimed the party has given a corruption-free government at the Centre and will soon launch various government schemes for the benefit of people.
Addressing a mega meet of the party workers at Amroodon-Ka-Bagh here, Shah said the Union government was formed at a time when there was a whiff of disappointment in the country.
Taking a dig at the Congress over “2G scam, CWG scam, submarine purchase, aircraft purchase, tank purchase scam”, the BJP’s senior leader challenged the UPA to prove even a single instance of corruption and scam in the present government.
“Those who raise questions, I ask them to tell even a single corruption case or scam and we will accept what they are
saying is true. The government has worked to root out corruption,” he said.
Shah further alleged, “Opposition charges that (the) Union government is of corporate houses. I want to ask Soniaji that in your government who gave coal worth `59,000 crore to corporate houses?”
The meet, which was attended by thousands of party workers, was held to boost the morale of party workers to increase the party’s outreach following enrolment of 10 crore members at the national level and more than 76 lakh people in the state.
Shah said the Union government will be completing a year in May and the rivals have spread several rumours about the party.
“I urge party workers not to be swayed by these rumours. This government has not done even a single thing to (that) led workers feel low,” he added.
Shah praised chief minister Vasundhara Raje for handling external security issues, compensation for farmers and setting aside speculations of cold vibes among party cadre.
RELIEF TO FARMERS
Chief minister Vasundhra Raje said increased power tariffs on agricultural connections would be adjusted in the next billing cycles.
Raje said that the BJP would form district-level units so that the workers publicise the government’s schemes at ground zero.
BJP leaders were not welcomed on the dais with flower garlands, but with party scarves. A leader managing the stage announced that the event a low-key affair due to the death of farmer Gajendra Singh, from Dausa, who allegedly committed suicide by hanging from a tree at a rally in New Delhi.
