Final yr’s bypolls have been fought on ‘Gaddari’, ‘Bikau’, what are the problems for polls this yr?
Public is fed up of joblessness, corruption and worth rise. Inflation has made life troublesome for the poor. Within the 16 years of rule, BJP has rendered two generations jobless. ‘Bikau’ (on sale) continues to be a difficulty as BJP needed to steal candidates because the get together doesn’t have candidates of its personal.
There was an issue on 27% OBC quota difficulty, your tackle the matter?
We had applied the reservation. The BJP authorities wrote letters to make different departments intervener. Lastly, it was applied from 2019. The Shivraj (Singh Chouhan) authorities bought it pending for a yr and half. Authorities’s counsels took 19 months to know the choice.
BJP is celebrating valour of tribal icons, do you suppose it’s linked to vote financial institution politics?
Sure, BJP holds occasions for votes. Our authorities had determined to construct memorials. We waived loans as much as Rs 1 lakh. Took care of their sacred locations. Took ahead Gondi language. Mooted ‘Asthan Yojana’. Freed them from ‘Sahukar’ (cash lending) system. However what did the Shivraj authorities do in 19 months? They provided tribals rice solely match to be consumed by the cattle, provided crimes and malnutrition, which is their true face.
Will these bypolls in MP set the tone for 2023 meeting polls within the state?
For positive, presently each part is hassled with ‘goondaraj’ (hooliganism) of the BJP because the get together is busy in ‘makan’ (home), ‘dukans’ (outlets) and ‘thekas’ (contracts). Through the Covid-19 pandemic, the general public had a nightmare with the loot in hospitals, pretend injections and faux plasma. The ruling get together individuals as a substitute of serving to out public have been caught promoting beds in hospitals. The general public gained’t neglect it and it’s now a struggle of the general public.
Would you wish to touch upon CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s present tenure in energy?
He’s a world guru in weaving an internet of deceit for being in energy. His tenure can be remembered for financial, social and ethical degradation.
Will the Congress endure in future polls as a consequence of resenting leaders like Captain Amarinder Singh in Punjab and TS Singh Deo in Chhattisgarh?
Settlement and disagreement are a part of any household and Congress is aware of methods to clear up them. We’ve got cited an instance in Punjab by appointing a Dalit Chief Minister and this step has earned reward from throughout the nation.
Your tackle Congress’s inner upheaval particularly as a consequence of a number of get together seniors taking up get together excessive command of late?
Congress doesn’t suppress expression throughout the get together. Everybody expresses his or her views and we draw a unanimous conclusion and transfer ahead.
