Pragtivahini News, Bengaluru : The BJP is the only party that can help India to grow, protect and ensure a bright future, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking at Booth level Vijay Sankalp Convention in which Union Minister for Home and Cooperation participated here on Saturday, he said there are around 2,000 political parties. It is a matter of pride that they are working as members of BJP which is the biggest political party in the world and it has more members than the Communist Party of China. The BJP is not only a big party but its thinking is also big. It was they who first considered Bharat Mata as an adorable deity and they lead a public life by always thinking that nation is ahead of everything. “We are ready to live for the country and die for the country. Ours is a party of patriots. Whereas the Congress leaders are only for the sake of power, and this is the difference between them and us. We say Bharat Mata Ki Jai, and they say Sonia Mata Ki Jai. While their loyalty is for the Italy leader, our devotion is for Bharat Mata”.
High-level objective and leadership
He said the BJP can alone ensure unity, integrity, internal & external security, economic development, social amity, concern for the poor, and the launch of welfare schemes. For any party to become successful, its policy, ideology, activism, and members are responsible. The BJP has a high-level objective and leadership. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a world leader who can lead the nation with clarity.
Bommai said they have seen how the previous UPA Government suffered from policy paralysis without taking any decision. The country did not progress at all and the Congress Party ruled the country immorally. Both the State and nation remained backward in all the fields. For this, Narendra Modi adopted the Gujarat model and ensured the rapid development of India. The PM gave a new direction to the country’s leadership. While Modi took decisions, Amit Shah implemented them. Modi took everyone into confidence and repealed Triple Talaq and Article 370 and ensured peace in Jammu & Kashmir. The people don’t want those who have failed to protect the Indian borders, land, water, and economy.
2 lakh crore loan
The CM said Karnataka is a progressive state but the five-year ruling by the Congress Party had made it most backward. While Siddaramaiah was the chief minister, the state’s borrowing had touched Rs 2 lakh crore. At that time, there was no Covid-19 pandemic. Till the Siddaramaiah government came to power, the total outstanding of Karnataka was around Rs one lakh crore, and it increased after he came to power. The incumbent BJP government has achieved economic progress amidst Covid-19 management. In the previous financial year, the economy was managed without taking a loan of Rs 10,000 crore. New national highways have been built and provided tapped water to over 30 lakh households in the last two years. Another 25 lakh houses will be provided tapped water soon.
Go before the public with positivity
The CM said the central government schemes like Kisan Sanman, Mudra, Ujwala, PM Awaaz, and Ayushman Bharat are kept before the people. Similarly, the welfare schemes launched by the state government such as Vidyanidhi, Swami Vivekananda Scheme, Stree Samarthya, self-employment scheme, and loan cum subsidy scheme for various traditional professionals will be placed before the people and seek votes.
State BJP President Nalin Kumar Kateel, BJP National General Secretary C.T.Ravi, Union Coal Minister Pralhad Joshi, BJP National General Secretary & In-Charge of Karnataka Arun Singh and several ministers were present.
