RAIPUR: Union home minister Amit Shah released on Saturday a “black paper” of 69 allegations against the Bhupesh Baghel government in Chhattisgarh and warned that BJP will “hang the corrupt upside down to straighten them out” if voted into government. Shah called the
government a “government of
, atrocities and breach of promise”.
“When there was a BJP government in Chhattisgarh under the leadership of Raman Singh it had put the state on the track of fulfilling the dreams of Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji. Ever since Modiji became PM in 2014, we have undertaken several initiatives to ensure the state flourishes. But in 2018 such a government was installed that supported massive corruption. As a result, we can see a question mark on the issue of development in Chhattisgarh,” he said.
Shah alleged corruption in the cow dung scheme and accused the Congress government of hindering the implementation of the anti-conversion law, saying it has led to “
“The people of Chhattisgarh have to decide whether they want the Baghel-led government, which indulges in thousands of crores of corruption, or the BJP government, which is going to lead them on the path of development; whether they want the government that came to power with the promise of protecting tribal rights but now under the reign of Baghel a wave of religious conversions has been unleashed,” Shah said.
Releasing the “Aarop Patra”, a list of allegations against the Congress government, Shah said: ” The CM does not remember the promises he made to the people. He made 36 big promises and 19 of them remain unfulfilled. Of the smaller promises, 316 remain unfulfilled.”
“The people of Chhattisgarh have always blessed BJP. They formed a government in the state three times. They gave BJ out of 11 Lok Sabha seats in the 2014 elections and nine in the 2019 elections. I can say with conviction that after forming a government in Chhattisgarh in 2023, the people will make us victorious in all 11 seats in 2024,” he added.
“A government that is deeply entrenched in corruption, dynasticism (sic), casteism and playing the Delhi Durbar’s ATM cannot ensure the development of Chhattisgarh. Only a double-engine BJP government, led by Modiji, can ensure development,” Shah said.
