Congress leaders ashamed of saying ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, claims Shah
Kukshi (MP), November 26
Congress leaders are ashamed of saying ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, BJP president Amit Shah claimed on Monday.
Addressing a rally in Kukshi area of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, he asked the opposition party to give details of its performance when it was in power, before asking the BJP to give a report of its four-and-a-half-year governance.
“I happen to know an incident from Rajasthan where a Congress worker wanted to give the slogan ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, but he was interrupted and made to say ‘Sonia Gandhi Ki Jai’,” Shah claimed.
“This shows what is more important to a Congress leader…They are ashamed of giving out such slogans,” Shah added.
Continuing his attack against the Congress leadership, he said, “Rahul baba (Congress chief) asks us to give a report of our four-and-a-half-year’s of performance. He and his family have been in power for four-and-a-half generations. They should first talk about their performances.”
Lauding the development work undertaken by MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Shah said the state government had brought huge reforms in agriculture sector but “the figures are deliberately ignored by Congress leaders”.
“During the Congress government, farmers used to get Rs 1,300 crore in the form of crop loans but Chouhan managed to increase the crop credit coverage to Rs 13,000 crore,” he claimed.
The campaign for the state polls ends on Monday evening and the voting will take place on Wednesday.
