BJP can make U.P. the richest State, says Amit Shah
The BJP which officially launched its campaign for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls on Saturday from Saharanpur, promised the electorate on Sunday that it would turn the State into the richest province of the country, if voted to power.
Party president Amit Shah, flagging off the second leg of the “Parivartan Yatra” from Jhansi, which is part of Bundelkhand, said the BSP and the SP had ‘destroyed’ the State in the last 15 years.
“Mayawati had said the Samajwadi Party was not good and asked the voters to give another chance to her party but there was no development in the State even during the BSP rule. Because both the parties are two sides of the same coin and can never bring development to the State,” Mr. Shah said.
Appealing to the people to vote for the BJP, Mr. Shah said, “You gave enough chances to the BSP and the SP. You must uproot the Samajwadi Party government and give a chance to the BJP which will usher in development.”
Mr. Shah said Bundelkhand was rich in natural resources and would develop immensely once illegal mining was stopped.
“I promise that U.P. will be the richest State in the country once BJP comes to power. There will be no loot of public money, no scam, as have been taking place all these years under the Samajawadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party rule,” he said, while pitching for a same-party rule at the Centre and State for a “corruption-free” U.P.
Mr. Shah alleged that ‘gangsters’ and ‘criminals’ were present in both the SP and BSP and that was why both could not improve the law and order situation.
