BHARATIYA JANTA Party in its less than three year rule has surpassed 30-years of Congress rule in corruption, opined Bharatiya Janshakti Party national general secretary Prahlad Patel. He was speaking at a function ‘Janshakti evam yuva shakti milan’ on Saturday to welcome Bajrang Dal activist Pradeep Nayar and his supporters into the party fold.
The function was held at Ravindra Natya Griha after the inauguration of the party office near Samrat hotel, MG Road.Patel announced appointment of function organiser Nayar as State general secretary of their Yuva Shakti wing. Patel flayed the BJP for its ‘mis’rule in the State.
He said Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan like his predecessor Babulal Gaur has failed to fulfill his onerous responsibility.
Being a Member of Parliament from Naxal effected Balaghat he had warned of the growing menace and ignoring this resulted in the discovery of a large Naxal run arms and information centre in the State capital.
He levelled charges of subverting justice against Minister of State for Home Nagendra Singh who he alleged took no action against those involved in arms smuggling as they are from his hometown.
He stated that BJP professed an ideology combing nationalism and Hindutva but ever since gaining power be it in the Centre or State has deviated from its path. The NDA led government in the Centre went soft on terrorism, Section 307 and Ram temple and the State government has reneged on its election promises and left the farmers at the mercy of black marketers.
The Congress has always professed secularism, turned a blind eye, and to some extent appeased divisive tendencies. Congress adopted the name of Gandhi but forgot his ideals. In such condition, Uma Bharti who brought the BJP into power in the State but was later unceremoniously removed from her post, had no other option but to float a party of her own.
Bharatiya Janshakti Party will work for Hindutva, ‘gau raksha’ and on the high ideals of commitment, dedication, sacrifice, courage and love as shown by Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) Sar Sangh Chalak Guru Golvalkar.
He reiterated that popularity of a leader is of key importance in a democracy and a leader like Uma Bharti cannot be ignored for long and she will get her place of pride.
Nayar in his address said that time and God have brought him to join politics and he as a fighter for the Hindu cause had never thought that life would lead him here.
He took the oath of doing ‘dharma ki seva’ (serve the religion) instead of ‘dharma ki rajniti’ (politics on religion) and learn from saintly figures in today’s politics like Uma Bharti and Prahlad Patel.
