ANI Photo | “Leaders of INDIA bloc are either in jail or on bail”: BJP chief Nadda in Chhattisgarh’s Bhilai

Bharatiya Janata Party national president JP Nadda lashed out at the opposition coalition, INDIA bloc, while addressing a public rally in Chhattisgarh’s Bhilai on Monday.
The BJP chief claimed that the leaders of the INDIA bloc are “either on bail or in jail”.
Nadda claimed that the opposition alliance guarantees nepotism and corruption, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi vows to eradicate corruption.
“On one side, there is only development taking place under Modi ji and on the other side, there is INDI alliance, this ghamandiya alliance, which has only two guarantees, one is ‘Parivarwad Bachao’ and second is ‘Bhrashtachariyon ko Bachao’. When Modi ji says ‘Bhrashtachar Hatao’, these people say ‘Bhrashtachariyon ko Bachao’. It is for the public to decide,” Nadda said.
“Rahul Gandhi is on bail, Sonia Gandhi is on bail, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Tejashwi Yadav, Tej Pratap, Sanjay Singh, P Chidambaram, Karti P Chidambaram, TMC Ministers, and DMK Ministers, are all on bail. Then Manish Sisodia is in jail, Arvind Kejriwal is in jail, Satyender Jain, some of TMC leaders, K Kavitha, and some of DMK leaders are in jail. The leaders of the ghamandiya alliance and the INDI alliance are either on bail or in jail,” he added.
Nadda claimed that the opposition alliance are formed by “family parties”.
“All of them are family parties. Look at their rallies–you’ll see father, son or wife and you can’t find any other leaders. Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah, Akhilesh and Dimple, Lalu Yadav, Tejashwi, Bharti, Mamata and Abhishek, KCR, KTR and K Kavitha, Stalin and Udhayanidhi Stalin, Sharad Pawar and Supriya Sule, and they even left out Ajit Pawar, then Uddhav Thackeray and Aaditya Thackeray. They prioritise their family, they have nothing to do with the people,” Nadda said.
The BJP chief also highlighted PM Modi-led government schemes and vowed to continue their benefits once they returned to power.
“When Modi ji took the oath as Prime Minister in 2014, he said that my government would be for the villages, the poor, the youth, the farmers, women and the deprived. Today, there is no village that is not connected to a paved road under the rural road scheme. Modi ji has pledged that every elderly person above 70 years of age will be given free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh. Through the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, free food grains are being provided to more than 80 crore poor people in the country. Due to this, 25 crore people in the country have come out of the poverty line,” he said.
The BJP chief further vowed to build three crore more houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, stressing “Modi’s guarantee.”
“There was a time when only two houses were available in a panchayat under the Indira Awas Yojana. Today, 4 crore houses have been constructed across the country under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. In the coming five years, 3 crore more houses will be built so that no poor person is left without a home. This is Modi’s guarantee,” Nadda said.
“Earlier, for treatment of serious diseases, one had to write a letter and appeal to the Prime Minister or Chief Minister. Today, around 60 crore people were given health coverage of up to Rs 5 lakh under the Ayushman Bharat scheme. Under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi, farmers are given Rs 6,000. PM Modi has decided Kisan Samman Nidhi will continue for the next 5 years. Similarly, the Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana will continue and we will make 3 crore Lakhpati Didis. This is PM Modi’s resolution,” he added.
The voting in Chhattisgarh’s Bastar was held on April 19 in the first phase. While voting in the remaining seats will be held on April 26 and May 7 in the second and third phases, respectively,.
Rajnandgaon, Mahasamund, and Kanker will go to the polls on April 19, while voting in Raigarh, Janjgir-Champa, Korba, Bilaspur, Durg and Raipur will take place on May 7.
