BJP President Amit Shah was in Rohtak on Wednesday where he took a jibe at the Congress party by saying its leaders are making all effort to dissolve the party, something which Mahatama Gandhi had desired. Addressing a rally, Shah said “Gandhi ji ne kaha tha azadi ke turant baad Congress ko bikhed dena chahiye… khair wo Gandhi ne nhi kiya ab koi Gandhi kar rha h”.
Shah said, while praising BJP-ruled government at centre, “The country’s progress and development goes down when the Congress party comes to power, while when BJP is in power, the growth rate increases.”
Shah also said that the BJP is trying to eradicate caste based politics from the country.
Earlier on Wednesday, Khattar spoke to people for their feedback on a range of issues concerning the state. The chief minister said that there was enthusiasm among the people in view of Shah’s visit to the state. Shah was honoured with traditional Haryanvi ‘pugri’. Shah will be attending 27 programmes, including 17 meetings with BJP MLAs and others, State BJP president Subhash Barala said.
With an eye on the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Shah is on a 110-day countrywide tour which began from Jammu in April this year. He will be visiting Tamil Nadu from August 22.
