Jamshedpur: National BJP vice president and MLA of Jamshedpur Raghuvar Das today said that Jharkhand was the gift of the BJP to the people of the state. He said former Prime Minister and BJP veteran Atal Behari Vajpayee had approved the proposal for division of Bihar and subsequent formation of a separate state of Jharkhand.
Das, addressing a convocation of party activists organized at Lady Inder Singh School ground in Telco on Sunday, said the present state of affairs in Jharkhand was a matter of great dismay. He said the plight of the state and its people was most disappointing and evident of the poor governance by the alliance-led governments. He said the condition of the state was not going to improve until and unless a majority government was formed by the BJP.
“The voters must not forget the present condition of Jharkhand. They should vote BJP into power to ensure that a government with absolute majority is formed this time round for the bright future of Jharkhand. After all, the 14 years of vanvaas (exile to the forest) of the BJP has ended and now the people are determined to vote BJP into power,” said the BJP leader who was present as the chief guest on the occasion.
Speaking on the CNT Act being termed as a deterrent to investors, Das said land banks will be created and allotted to companies for investment purpose in case BJP forms the next government in the state. He said CNT Act was no impedance to development in the state.
The former deputy CM said the state government had failed to provide jobs to the youths of the state. He alleged that the government was ‘robbing’ the state of its rich resources.
The guests of the convocation earlier garlanded portraits of Pundit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee to inaugurate the programme.
