BJP’s big guns hit campaign trail

Friday, 25 November 2022 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

Union Ministers Dharmendra Pradhan, Anurag Thakur along with 12 other senior BJP leaders addressed around 60 public meetings in different areas of Delhi on Thursday as the party went all out to woo voters for the forthcoming MCD polls.

Besides Pradhan and Thakur, other BJP leaders who addressed public meetings were national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, MPs Anil Jain, Harsh Vardhan, Mahesh Sharma, Locket Chatterjee, Ramesh Bidhuri, Pravesh Singh, former Bihar Ministers Prem Kumar and Jivesh Mishra, Delhi unit president Adesh Gupta, former State president of Uttarakhand  Madan Kaushik and MLA from Uttar Pradesh Nand Kishore Gurjar.

Pradhan, who did a road show in Greater Kailash Vidhan Sabha said when during the Covid period AAP MLAs went missing and BJP workers served Delhiites.

“In this corporation election, BJP candidates are again among you with the resolution of service and I appeal to you to support them and assure Delhiites that if you elect BJP councilor, Delhi will get more benefits of the development schemes of the Centre,” he said.

Union Minister Anurag Thakur also did road shows and addressed people in Vasant Kunj, Palam and Madhu Vihar wards.

He said the appeasement politics of the Kejriwal Government was exposed long back when it started paying salaries to the maulvis but did not give salaries to pandits and granthis. Thakur also said that this was the first time after Independence that a Minister is in jail and Kejriwal is still retaining him in his Cabinet. Kailash Vijayvargiya met people in Holambi Kalan ward and urged them to vote for the BJP.

Anil Jain said that under the leadership of Narendra  Modi, the country has embarked on a new path of progress and people are getting free treatment up to five lakh rupees under the Ayushman Bharat scheme, but due to Kejriwal's negligence and political malice, this scheme could not be implemented in Delhi.

Adesh Gupta said that the BJP will scrap factory licences and adopt a simple online process to issue trade and health licences. Multi-level parking will also be developed in all the major markets to ease the parking-related problems faced by the traders, he said.

Gupta said if the BJP wins it will also de-seal thousands of properties sealed on account of violation of the Master Plan for Delhi-2021.He said under the 'Samriddhi Yojana, house tax has been waived off and traders in unauthorised colonies have been given option to deposit the tax for one year and avail the tax dues of past 17 years.



He said the BJP will also ensure that the factories in 30 industrial areas do not have to depend on licenses to boost manufacturing in the city.

He said that traders are facing parking problem, be it Chandni Chowk, Lajpat Nagar, Sarojini Nagar, Rajouri Garden, Yamuna Par bazaars. We will solve the parking problem in these bazaars so that common people can easily come there for shopping.

Harsh Vardhan said the MCD has given many facilities in the last 15 years and “on returning in service again in MCD, the BJP will give exemption in trade license to businessmen and bring many self-employment schemes for women and youth in the next six months.”

BJP MP from Gautam Budh Nagar, Mahesh Sharma said that due to the carelessness of the Kejriwal Government, the people of Delhi are forced to drink dirty and poisonous water and also Delhi has become a chamber of poisonous air. This is the reason why today despite working in Delhi, people are living in Noida and adjoining areas of Delhi.
