Ranchi, Outlining the achievements of Narendra Modi government and the steps taken for the welfare of the schedule tribes and schedule castes in the country, BJP’s national president Amit Shah today urged the tribals of Jharkhand not be mislead by the false rumours which are being spread by the opposition.
Addressing an interaction programme with the intellectuals of the tribal community here, he said tribals should not fall in the trap of the opposition but they should first wonder about whether the condition of roads, power, drinking water and other basic amenities of lives have improved over the last four years or not.” Any wrong decision is neither in the welfare of the community nor in the interest of the state,” he said.
Mr Shah said the opposition was speaking lies that the SC/ST act has been weakened by the BJP government but in reality the act was earlier weak and by bringing in the changes it has been made further strong.
Mr Shah issued a challenge to the legal pundits of the Congress party to debate over the issue and also accused Congress president of speaking lies over the matter.
Mr Shah said the Modi government was working on three point agenda of empowerment, participation and honour.He said, as part of poll preparations for the 2019 elections and strengthening the organization of the party, he is travelling in the entire country during which he is also interacting with the members of the SC/ST community as it was better to quell all the fake rumours which are being spread by the opposition at the national and at the state level by directly speaking with the people.
Attacking the Congress, he said that the party which ruled the country for 60 years also got maximum vote of the tribals but did nothing for them in return. He said after just four years in power, Modi government is out with the works which it has done for the welfare of the people and it was also the right of the people to know what the government has done for them.
Mr Shah alleged that Congress has no feelings for the tribals and it has only used them for its vote bank politics.The BJP’s national president said it is easy to provoke the feelings of the tribals but to provide them with development and other amenities of live is another things. He said, the Congress just use to talk but his government has just allowed its works to speak.
Mr Shah said out of 115 aspirational districts, majority are dominated by the tribals which will be directly developed by the central government and added that by August/September the central government will launch an ambitious scheme to provide medical cover of upto Rs 5 lakh to 50 crore people majority of whom will be SC/STs.
