Chhattisgarh elections: BJP president Amit Shah releases manifesto, confident of win
At a presser in Chhattisgarh on Saturday, BJP president Amit Shah said that the Raman Singh government in Chhattisgarh had made the state ‘almost free’ of Naxalism and developed it as a hub of power and cement production.
Taking a jibe at the opposition party, Congress, Amit Shah said, a party that felt Naxalism was a medium for revolution could not do any good for Chhattisgarh. Exuding tremendous confidence, Shah said that BJP would win this month’s Assembly polls in the state for the fourth straight time.
While addressing a press conference here after releasing BJP’s manifesto ahead of the first phase of polling on November 12, Shah said the reporters, “The BJP government under Chief Minister Raman Singh has contained Naxalism and made the state almost free of it.”
While lauding the efforts of the Raman Singh government for initiating several welfare measures for the state’s prosperity, Shah said that earlier known as a BIMARU state, Chhattisgarh was now a ‘power and cement production hub.’
He also expressed, “Taking on the Congress’s propaganda and working tirelessly for the state’s development for the last 15 years is a big challenge. I am confident that the BJP will win a straight fourth term in office.”
