Prime News, National (Ambikabur), June 11:- BJP president Amit Shah today sounded the bugle for the upcoming assembly polls in Chhattisgarh, launching a blistering attack on Rahul Gandhi over “lack of development” during the “four-generation rule” of the Congress.
Addressing a huge rally in Ambikabur, Shah hit out at Gandhi for seeking an account of the work done by the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre in the past four years, but not speaking about the 55 years the Congress ruled the country.
“Congress chief Rahul Gandhi was asking what has the Modi government done in four years. Rahul baba, why are you asking for our account of four years? We do not need to give you any account. We will give an account of every minute and every paisa to people when we go to them seeking votes,” he said.
“You are asking ‘hisab’ from us but this country wants ‘hisab’ of four generations of your family. Your family ruled the country for 55 years. People of this country want to know why development did not take place during the 55-year rule of four generations of your family,” Shah said.
The rally was organised as part of the ‘Vikas Yatra’ campaign launched by Chief Minister Raman Singh to highlight the achievements of his government in the past 15 years in Chhattisgarh, which goes to polls later this year.
Shah said no party has the courage to share the account of its work with people ahead of elections but the chief minister has been doing that through his Vikas Yatra.
The Congress is not opposing the yatra but development, Shah said, referring to the opposition party’s criticism of the campaign.
The Congress has slammed the yatra, accusing the BJP of using public money to promote itself ahead of the polls.
