Shah: Khattar has given corruption-free Govt
Jind (Haryana): Amid tight security and with participation of over one lakh bikers, Bharatiya Janata Party's Haryana wing organised mega "Yuva Hunkar Rally" here on Thursday.
With the presence of party vanguards at the heart of Haryana politics, BJP also attempted to consolidate its hold across the State ahead of both the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections. Party national president Amit Shah rode in a bike along with party's State president Subhash Barala to the meeting place and expressed gratitude to the party leaders across 17,000 booths for the enormous rally calling "Kumbh of party workers".
Union Ministers, State cabinet ministers, party secretaries also participated in the rally.
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar himself rode a bike in Jind on Wednesday to take stock of the preparations made for the rally.
State incharge Anil Jain, national secretary and former parliamentarian Sudha Yadav, national general secretary Ram Lal, State Cabinet Ministers Krishna Kumar, Ram Bilas Sharma, Captain Abhimanyu, Dr. Banwari Lal, Rao Nareen, BJP MPs Ashwini Chopra, Ratanlal Kataria and Ministers at the Centre Krishnapal Gujjar, Rao Indrajeet Singh and Birendra Singh were also present.
While addressing the mega rally, BJP chief and Rajya Sabha MP Amit Shah lauded both the performance of the State Government and NDA Government's last full term Union Budget 2018-2019. "The Khattar government is such that there is no caste, we believe in the mantra of all 'development and development'," Shah said. "Haryana is land of warriors. It is the land of youths, farmers, martyrs. It is the land that has given foodgrains and soldiers to defend the country," he added further.
Under the Congress rule, "the money used to go down the gutter of corruption. But now it flows from the Centre's treasury into states' coffers," Shah said, adding that Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar needs to be congratulated for giving a corruption-free and transparent regime after a long time in the state.
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress party, Shah also asserted that the earlier Congress government did not provide 50 per cent profit of farm produce to farmers on their input cost, and claimed that after Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, he has fulfilled this demand of farmers. "For the first time since Independence, the village, the farmer and the poor feel that this government is my government," he mentioned further.

But now it flows from the Centre's treasury into states' coffers," Shah said, adding that Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar needs to be congratulated for giving a corruption-free and transparent regime after a long time in the state.
Shah said that even 'one-rank one-pension' for ex-servicemen had been lingering for decades, but Modi Government took this decision within one year of coming to power.
During the 13th Finance Commission, Haryana got Rs 14,000 crore but Modi government has given Rs 42,000 crore to Haryana. Modi government has also decided to give insurance of up to Rs 5 lakh to 50 crore people of the country," Shah said.
Shah also lauded the efforts of government towards improving sex ratio.
He told party workers to ensure that BJP wins all the 10 Lok Sabha seats from Haryana in 2019.
"Today the BJP rules 19 states. Let results (of states going to polls) come on 3rd, these will become 21," he said.
He said Prime Minister Modi wants to create an India "as dreamt by our freedom fighters, our brave soldiers defending our borders, the poor, farmers and school going girls". He also laid foundation stones of new BJP offices in 15 districts and inaugurated one new party office through remote.
Hundreds of security personnel, including the Haryana Police and para-military forces were stationed in Jind, over 200-km from Chandigarh, ahead of Shah's rally in view of the threat by opposition Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) that its workers showed black flags to the BJP leaders and protest against the rally ahead of 27 kms of the rally venue. Although, the top leadership of All India Jat Arakshan Sanghsrsh Samiti withdrew their proposal of protesting after holding talks with Chief Minister M L Khattar and Union Minister Birendra Singh.
