Jamshedpur: Former state president of Bharatiya Janata Party Yadunath Pandey today assailed Congress party for its alleged contribution in corruption, inflation and other problems facing the people of the country while appealing voters to elect the BJP candidate.
Addressing scribes on his visit to the city on Sunday, Pandey said the people of the nation were nurturing ‘a feeling of repulsion’ against the Congress party far more intense than the one they held during Emergency. He said the people were too tormented by the evils of corruption, unemployment and inflation to keep quiet.
“During the Emergency, people were afraid of speaking up against the Central government led by the Congress. But now they are no more afraid. They are going to register their protest by rejecting the Congress in this Parliamentary election and give BJP a chance to form the government. The entire nation is looking with hope towards Narendra Modi and the BJP,” said Pandey.
The senior BJP leader said Gujarat had seen rise in development activities after the year 2002. He said no riot was witnessed since then in the state. “Narendra Modi is furthering the cause of national development and prosperity taken up by Atal Behari Vajpayee and Lal Krishna Advani. The people are with him and the party in their mission to save the country from corruption, inflation and other problems,” said Pandey.
Pandey said Modi was going to form the government at the Centre as the National Democratic Alliance was sure of winning the general elections with landslide margin. He said the NDA will form the government with the help of its alliance partners without an iota of doubt.
The Jamshedpur Mahanagar BJP president Rajkumar Srivastava was also present on the occasion. He alleged that Jharkhand Vikas Morcha candidate Dr Ajoy Kumar was campaigning with Pilpil Pappu, who was a history-sheeter and named in numerous crimes in the city. He said the JVM leaders were putting pressure on various organizations having received help from the MP to vote for Dr Ajoy in the election.
“The JVM leaders are disappointed much before the election. They are certain to lose in the polls. This is why they are making irresponsible statements in the media,” said Srivastava.
