Srinagar: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Union Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs, Anurag Singh Thakur said on Wednesday that his party will claim election hat-trick in Jammu and Kashmir also, following its success in Hyderabad and Rajasthan.
Thakur, who is also in-charge of Jammu and Kashmir DDC elections, said that the BJP has emerged as the largest political party in the world because it knows the heartbeat of India and delivers on its promises. His party, he said, believes in proactive measures that not only touch but also transform lives and create livelihoods for every citizen.
“We do not do part time politics; we are devoted to the socio-economic welfare of the people in J&K. We are here for the long run, shoulder to shoulder to make this region amongst the most developed and world class in India,” he said.
“The people of J&K and India are with the BJP, they believe in the reformist and development oriented agenda of PM Narendra Modi. Whether its state elections or Municipal elections or Panchayat elections, time and again people have reposed their faith in the leadership provided by BJP,” he added.
Thakur said that in the recently concluded Hyderabad Municipal polls, his party won 48 seats in comparison to 4 in 2016. In the state of Rajasthan, he said, the BJP won 1989 seats out of 4371 Panchayat Samiti seats.
“The incumbent Congress received 1852 seats; this shows a clear lack of trust for the party at its activities. In fact in the Zila Parishad elections, the BJP won 353 seats in comparison to the Congress 252 seats. In the by-elections of UP, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh as well we saw how people reposed their faith in BJP,” he said.
“This clearly shows a strong wave of support in favour of the BJP at all levels of the democratic system. BJP fights elections with all the energy of its karyakartas and supporters. We win because we serve the interest of people not like the selfish interests of Gupkar Gang leaders,” he added.
Launching a scathing attack on J&K mainstream parties, the senior BJP leader said that it was a fact that the “Gupkar Gang” not only “looted” the state of its resources, but also neglected basic healthcare, education, infrastructure, employment needs of J&K.
There is dejection amongst the karyakartas of PDP, INC and NC as they know the people will reject them once and for all on 22nd Dec. The people of J&K are ready to vote for a development oriented vision under PM Narendra Modi and J&K will be the hat-trick in the victory”, he added. (KDC)
