CM Kamal Nath’s address at Chhindwara’s massive election rally
Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal, Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath said that the BJP has only one work – that is to clinch votes by serving people with lies. The Chief Minister said that our promise is that the loans of 50 lakh farmers of the state will be waived which we will fulfill at any cost, even at the cost of our lives. He said that corruption will not be tolerated, be it anyone, however influential he will be punished. Shri Kamal Nath addressed several public meetings during his Chhindwara tour. Lok Sabha constituency candidate Nakul Nath was also present in the public meetings.
Chief Minister Kamal Nath said that the promise we had made to the people of this state before the assembly elections was like a pledge which we will surely fulfil. The Chief Minister said that after the government was formed, we had got only three months of time to work before the election code of conduct was implemented along with an empty treasury. Despite this, we left no stone unturned in fulfilling our promise. In 100 days, we fulfilled 83 promises and the biggest promise in that was the loan waiver of 50 lakh farmers.
The Chief Minister said that let people say anything, any lie, but it is true that the loans of 23 lakh farmers of the state has been waived. Loans of the remaining 27 lakh farmers will be waived after elections. He said that our concern is farmers and youth. We want to see a smile on the face of the farmers and want to give work to every young man. Soon after forming the government, we have taken concrete steps in this direction.
‘Maximum terror attacks happen when BJP is in power’
Taking a jibe at the Prime Minister over his nationalistic poll pitch, Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Sunday said even when Narendra Modi did not learn to wear pyjamas and pants, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi had built the country’s defence forces.The veteran Congress leader’s stinging attack on Modi came days after the Prime Minister referred to him as ‘bhrasht’ Nath, meaning corrupt.
Addressing an election rally at Harsud in Khandwa district, Nath said the highest number of terror attacks happen whenever the BJP is in power at the Centre. “Modi talks about security of the country. Was the country not in safe hands five years ago? Modi, when you had not even learned to wear pyjamas and pants, Jawaharlal Nehru (the first prime minister of India) and (former PM) Indira Gandhi had created the Army, the Air Force and the Navy for this country. And, you say that the country is safe under you,” he said.
Modi has been invoking the Pulwama terror attack and Balakot air strike in an apparent bid to build a poll narrative around national security and a decisive government. “Under whose Government did most terror attacks happen? Whose government was in Delhi when terror attack on Parliament happened (in 2001)? The BJP government was there and statistics shows that the highest number of terrorist attacks have happened under the BJP rule,” the chief minister said.
Continuing his tirade, the Congress leader said Modi has failed to keep his promise of generating jobs for youths.
“Modi promised to give crores of employment but how many youths have got jobs? Modi said good days will come. Whose good days have come? Modi promised to bring back black money from abroad. Where is that money?” he asked.
