BJP President Amit Shah visits Jharkhand to review poll preparedness; Targets congress saying, it only spoke about poverty alleviation; Says, Modi government has transformed the lives of the poor tribals; BJP chief will visit Patna today.
BJP president Amit Shah, who was on one day visit to Jharkhand to tone up the party organisation ahead of next year’s Lok Sabha election, said the Congress merely talked of “garibi hatao” or remove poverty during its 60-year rule, whereas Prime Minister Narendra Modi took various initiatives to transform the lives of tribal and poor people.
Addressing a function of intellectuals of “Janjatiya Samaj” (tribal society), Amit Shah said the Congress kept the tribal and poor populations underdeveloped, but the Narendra Modi government gave them priority in development leading to their all-round progress in just four years.
BJP President will be reaching Bihar on a day-long visit today. Shah would take three hectic review meetings with party officials of different wings at Patna.
