Chief Minister Raghubar Das today said that just like 2014 general elections when the people of the country had rejected Congress and its alliance of opportunist partners, voters in this election have also rejected parties that played negative politics. The CM said that he was sure that the National Democratic Alliance will get not less than 13 seats out of the 14 Lok Sabha seats in the State.
Addressing media persons at State BJP headquarters here on Monday the CM said that first time after independence people have reflected faith in the ruling party. “There is a positive change in the Indian politics after 2014, where people’s hunger for development is clearly visible. In UP, Bengal and the whole country people have rejected caste based, communal and violent politics,” he said.
“In 2014 elections Congress and its opportunist alliance partners were rejected by the voters. In 2019 elections also the people have rejected those who were playing negative politics. The whole Opposition has accepted that Modi government is coming again. They should be ready to play the role of a constructive Opposition,” added the CM.
Talking about exit polls, Das said that the exit poll results may not be 100 per cent true, but they reflect the trend of the actual results. And, the trend is in favour of the NDA, he said, adding that Dumka and Koderma constituencies will show surprise results this time and Guruji (Shibu Soren) is going to lose the polls.
The CM said that party workers have been working for the polls for over a year and it was the result of their hard work that NDA in Jharkhand will make a clean sweep in 13 out of 14 seats. “There is just one seat – Rajmahal – where there is a neck and neck contest. There is a sizeable number of minority voters in the constituency, but our party workers have given feedback that even minority community voters have voted for BJP. This simply means that we will win the seat with a margin of 10 to 15 thousand votes. The party will secure its win in all the seats of the State,” he said.
Talking about development in the State the CM said that in 14 years nothing was done to bring the State on development tracks, but the incumbent government was trying its best to give Jharkhand the glory that it deserves. “There was no vision in earlier governments, but now things are improving at a fast pace. There are many shortcomings too and it will take some time to fix things,” said he.
The CM also extended greetings to the Election Commission of India, DEOs, Returning Officers, police and security officers, jawans for conducting free and fair polls in the State.
He specially thanked the people of naxal infested areas, who reposed faith in the democratic system and gave priority to development and security.
