Abki Baar 65 Paar: Jharkhand CM on forthcoming assembly Elections
Raghubar Das, who is on the verge of becoming the first chief minister to complete a five-year term in once politically-volatile Jharkhand, has set the BJP's target for the assembly elections to be held later this year - "Abki Baar 65 paar".
In the 2014 assembly elections, BJP won 42 of the 81 seats. The BJP and its allies won 12 out of 14 seats in the Lok Sabha elections this year.
Jharkhand CM, Das said, "This time we will cross 65 seats. There is no doubt in people giving an absolute mandate to us. We will win by a huge majority as the message of development under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has percolated down to the masses".
He said, "Due to the solid foundation of development works, the BJP worker remains ever ready to contest elections, whether, in Jharkhand or other parts in the country, people have seen and accepted the politics of development under Prime Minister Modi".
Claiming that the opposition 'mahagathbandhan' will play a decisive role in the forthcoming Elections, Das said that the people of the state, including the exploited, the poor and the Dalits have seen development work and have "outrightly rejected the 'power-hungry' coalition formed with selfish ulterior motives".
Das said, "The citizens of Jharkhand have shown the mirror to 'mahagathbandhan' in the Lok Sabha elections, they were influenced by NDA's development politics. This time too they will be given a befitting reply".
He is ready to become the first chief minister of Jharkhand to complete a full-term after its partition from Bihar on November 15, 2000.
"I have complete faith that the double engine government (at the Centre and state) has taken people to the path of development. Now development is reaching to villagers in far-flung areas. Basic necessities like electricity and water have reached inaccessible areas. Youths are getting employment," he claimed.
Elaborating on the welfare schemes, Das said his government has launched the 'Mukhyamantri Sukanya Yojna' & 'Mukhyamantri Krishi Ashirwad Yojana' for the welfare of girls and farmers.
