Sonia Gandhi in Ambikapur (Chhattisgarh)

Sonia Gandhi in Ambikapur: Chhattisgarh will prosper 36 times better if Congress comes to power
Ambikapur: Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi assured that Chhattisgarh will develop chathees (36) times better if Congress comes to power in the state. While addressing a mega Congress election rally in Ambikapur in Chhattisgarh, Sonia Gandhi launched a blistering attack on the ruling BJP government and urged the people to help Congress to form a government in the state to take it forward.

“You have a government here which did not pay attention towards development in the required manner. The state is lagging behind and the law and order situation has been deteriorating. The women here live in fear as they face several types of atrocities. The farmers live in misery. Adivasis are not getting proper price for the forest crops. and are deprived of their rights in lands. In fact their lands were grabbed forcibly. Poverty has been increasing and youth are not securing proper jobs,” said the Congress President.

Taking on BJP for its divisive agenda, Sonia Gandhi asserted, ”Divisive politics will not benefit anyone. Time has come to give a befitting reply to those who pit one against another. A wind for change is blowing in Chhattisgarh. I am confident that the people here will take a right decision to bring in positive changes. Congress always gave special priority for Chhattisgarh’s development and will continue to do so”.
Continuing her attack on BJP, the Congress leader further said, “Mere words cannot fill empty stomachs. Works with dedication and commitment are must for development. Chhattisgarh govt has been assisted by central govt to fight Naxalism. What have they done to curb Naxal menace? What happened with the Congress leaders in Chhattisgarh five months back is very shameful for the state BJP government”.

She also highlighted the policies of the central government. “The Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre implemented Mahatma Gandhi NREGA to guarantee jobs to the rural poor and to curb migration. We also brought in Food Security Bill to make sure that no one in our country lives in hunger. We also enacted Right to Forest law to grant rights to the Adivasis in their lands and forest crops. Our Land Acquisition Bill prevents any forceful land grabbing and the people are now assured with proper price for their lands acquired” and added “It is the responsibility of the state government to make sure that the people here avail the benefits of these schemes but the BJP government in Chhattisgarh failed to do so. They betrayed the people”.

Listing out the failure of the ruling BJP government in the state, Sonia Gandhi continued “Chhattisgarh has slipped back under BJP regime. The central government sent thousands of crores for development to the state but despite of this, lots of children suffer from malnutrition here. Adequate health care facilities are not available for my sisters in the state and education facilities are insufficient here. There are no proper roads. The condition of electricity is pathetic” and asked “Despite of all these, how can BJP claim development in Chhattisgarh? How can they raise fingers against Congress?”
The first phase of elections in Chhattisgarh was held on Monday the next phase will be held on 19th November.
