BHOPAL: On Wednesday in Gwalior the Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan spoke about the eradication of poverty in the state during the Jan Ashirwad Yatra.
By taking a swing at the Congress, he said, if anyone wants to learn how to eliminate poverty they should take lessons from the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shivraj Singh Chouhan. “Indira Gandhi used to say ‘Garibi Hatao’. Rajiv Gandhi too repeated the same, but Congress removed only poor and not poverty,” he said, also adding that the BJP’s objective is ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’. He said, everyone in MP would be having pucca houses by the year 2022, and he spoke about the Sambal Yojana and the government’s initiative to pay the fees for higher education of poor students.
Narendra Singh Tomar the union minister and other senior BJP leaders were also present on this occasion. “All Maharajas failed to increase the irrigated land area in state. In Congress rule, the total irrigated land area was 7.30 lakh hectares, which has now increased to 41 lakh hectares in the BJP rule. In coming years, the irrigated land area would be increased to 80 lakh hectares”, he said.
Chouhan said that Rahul Gandhi the Congress president leaves New Delhi and starts visiting villages only during the poll season. “Rahul Gandhi does not even know that onion is grown under or above the ground, but he acts as if is the well-wisher of farmers. Earlier, Rahul Gandhi used to talk about making Amethi a brand, but has failed to do so. Now he talks of making Gwalior and Chitrakoot a brand. Talking of ‘Made in Gwalior’ and ‘Made in Chitrakoot’ will not help the Congress, as people have understood that under the leadership of Rahul Congress is losing elections one after another”, the CM said.
