Chandigarh: Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) will release its manifesto with a title ‘Vision Document’ and will contest MC elections based upon the mantra of 14 years of Congress versus 10 months of BJP rule. This was stated by BJP state president Sanjay Tandon after holding the meeting of all 21 candidates at Kamlam, BJP office on Thursday.
Tandon said that BJP will evaluate developmental works done and initiated by BJP in past 10 month’s tenure which Congress failed to do so in past 14 years of their holding.
“What Congress failed to do in past 14 years, we did it in 10 months. It will be 14 years of Congress versus 10 months of BJP these elections. We will spread the achievements made by BJP during past 10 months which Congress failed to do so in such a long tenure. Most important is that Congress failed to get NOC from two state governments to get water from Kajauli, which BJP did it when came in to power for just 10 months.”
BJP will highlight the inabilities of Congress forth the public and contest the MC elections purely on development factors and exposing the corrupt people and curbing the corrupt practices.
Earlier Tandon chaired a meeting and detailed the 21 candidates about the elections process and strategies to be followed.
While narrating the other achievements, Tandon said that most of the major projects which were hanging a fire due to lackadaisical attitude of Congress were taken up on priority basis by BJP and completed in public interest. Kajauli water works, multilevel parking, MC building extension are some of the major projects that Congress had dumped in dirt bag which BJP took out and made them operational, said Tandon.
Cong must take demonetisation issue in public: Tandon
The demonetisation will also reflect on the expenses to be made by candidates during the election campaign. Sanjay Tandon said that the money inflow crunch will definitely restrict the expenses to remain in a prescribed limit. Election Commission has increased the expenses limit from Rs 1.75 lakh to Rs 3.25 lakh per candidate.
He said, “We want that Congress must take up the issue of demonetisation in public as it will give boost to the subject and people will get more aware of the merits of demonetising the currency.
Prime Minster Narendra Modi has taken a daring step to get unaccounted for money out of those who had hoarded the currency. This step will show the new face of Indian economy which will lead to reducing of the inflation and prices of basic commodities.”He added that Congress is left with no other issue and is beating around the bush to misguide the voters with their false allegations.
‘Bansal was part and parcel of Railgate scam’
Chandigarh: Allegations and counter allegations that started between BJP and Congress took another turn on Thursday.
While addressing the media at Kamlam on Thursday, Tandon said, “Legally Bansal may have saved his skin out of the railgate scam but factually he was part and parcel of the scam. The direct involvement of his nephew in the scam during his tenure as union Railway Minister cannot be ignored. He may have come out clean legally but people know that his involvement was there.”
After Amit Shahs visit to city, Bansal had clarified his stand over the issue as Shah raised the issue during the public meeting.
Bansal also wished to be probed again for the scam and was confident that he will come out clean once again. He said, “I came out clean earlier also and even I was made a prosecution witness. If still BJP thinks that they can reopen the inquiry, I am ready to face the probe once again.”
‘Cong started development in city’
Subhash Chawla targeted Arun Sood and said Congress started development of Chandigarh but was not able to complete it as time period of mayor is just one year. He also claimed that till now BJP has spent approximately Rs 40 lakh on inaugurations just to get votes from public. Chawla claimed that after 15 years, BJP member was elected as Mayor. He also staged how all four Congress counsellors and nominated counsellors were manipulated by BJP.
