Una (HP): The BJP is all set to win the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and to make Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India for the third time in succession.
This was stated by Union Information-cum-Broadcasting Minister, Anurag Thakur during a party function here today.
Rajiv Bindal, the new party chief and local LA, Sat Pal Satti were also present in the function in which workers pledged to work unitedly to bring the party to power in succession.
Speaking on occasion, he said that the Party will be carrying out a number of public meetings to garner public support, Union Minister Anurag Thakur said on Sunday.
Speaking to reporters, Thakur said, “Modi government’s nine years will be completed on May 30. On this occasion, BJP will be garnering people’s support through public meetings. The state unit president will inform all the workers about the programs to be held in the next one month. Our Una MLA Satpal Satti ji was the state BJP president for the last nine years. We will continue to get his guidance as well. Our new organization minister Siddharthan ji has also arrived in Una today. We welcome and congratulate him too.” “Today every countryman feels that ‘Modi hai to Mumkin hai’. If we can reach this far in 9 years, then imagine how far the country and Himachal can go in the next 5 years. In the next two years we are going to become the third largest economy of the world, so imagine what will happen after 5 years,” he added.
Accusing the Congress party of doing “appeasement politics”, the Union Minister said that the party had won state elections before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections as well, but couldn’t match the results in the general elections.
The BJP leader further accused Congress of “humiliating” BR Ambedkar and stated that he got the respect of PM Modi.
“The Congress party humiliated and tortured Babasaheb Ambedkar, who made India’s constitution. It was Modi Ji who gave him his due respect after coming. His Panchtirth was developed in all five places; Nagpur, Mau, Mumbai, Delhi, and London. Our government also started celebrating November 26 as Constitution Day,” he said.
Thakur added, “It was Modi ji who declared Babasaheb’s birth anniversary as a holiday on April 14. Scholarships worth Rs 7000 crore have been given to Scheduled Tribes. From every scheme of the Modi government, SC, ST, backwards and minority families have benefited the most.
He said,“Those who have given nothing to the country except hatred, nepotism and the strategy of ‘divide and rule’ in their whole life, should not be talking about love and harmony. Congress has always done politics of appeasement. Even after ruling the country for 60-65 years, today they talk about ‘rewadis’. Even before the 2019 general elections, the Congress had won in some states, but you all have seen what happened in 2019,” Anurag Thakur said.
He added, “The Hamirpur-Dharampur-Mandi is also being widened at a cost of Rs 1200 crores. The road from Hamirpur to Bilaspur has also been widened at a cost of Rs 300 crore. The road from Mataur to Hamirpur-Bilaspur-Shimla which was more than 200 km will now get reduced to 180 kms, and instead of six hours now it will only take three hours”.
