BJP all set to form next Govt in State : Shah
Rajya Sabha MP and BJP’s National President Amit Shah on Monday said that Chhattisgarh has transformed from a backward region in erstwhile Madhya Pradesh to a developed Chhattisgarh State now.
The State had been on a development trajectory under the leadership of Chief Minister Raman Singh, he said while addressing a press conference here.
Shah applauded the development and welfare work done by the ruling BJP Government in the State during the past 15 years and said that the party will certainly achieve the target of ‘mission 65’ by winning targetted Assembly seats in the upcoming elections.
“Definitely the BJP is going to form the next Government in Chhattisgarh for the fourth consecutive term”, he said.
The Atal Bihari Vajpayee Government at the Centre initiated the carving of separate Chhattisgarh State and soon after its formation, the BJP came to power in Chhattisgarh, he said.
Citing achievements of the ruling BJP Government in the State, Shah said the State had now attained its identity as a ‘surplus power state’ and succeeded in controlling the Maoist menace.
The Government has laid road networks, agriculture production has increased to manifold and the Government is procuring them crops on Minimum Support Price. The Government is providing food grains to poor at subsidised rates and is also providing them health facilities, he said.
Many a state is getting inspiration from the Chhattisgarh State and now the State has become a role model for them, Shah said.
Regarding assistance of Central Government in development of Chhattisgarh, Shah said the financial assistance in 13 finance commission was merely Rs 48,000 crores which was considerably increased to three-fold in 14th finance commission to Rs 1,37, 900 crore.
Commenting on his previous comment that Congress party would soon be rooted out from Chhattisgarh, Shah said it does not mean that he want to roots out the opposition. The responsibility to keep alive Congress party was not mine but was of Rahul Gandhi as he is the All India Congress Committee (AICC) President, he said.
