Dr. Ashok Tanwar, former M.P., President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee said that BJP usurped power by falsehood and fraud by misleading the people. Speaking at ‘Meet The Press’ in Press Clud, Chandigarh, he said that Mod Government at the Centre and Khattar Government in Haryana are based on falsehood and treachery, but falsehood has no feet, therefore both the Central and State Government are floating in the air. They have not done anything concrete during the last four and a half years. He said that the demonetization did not do any benefit to the people of the country but BJP used it for converting its black money into white one and has bought land worth a number of lakh crores rupees.Making a blistering attack on BJP Government at the Centre and in Haryana, Dr. Tanwar said that during the last elections Mr. Modi made tall promises like depositing 15 lakhs rupees in the account of each person, providing jobs to two crore youth every year, bringing back black money from abroad etc. etc., but during the last four years what the BJP Government has gifted to the people of the country is back-breaking high prices, unlimited increase in the prices of petrol, diesel and LPG despite low cost of crude oil. The promise to provide two crore jobs to the youth has also proved merely a jumla. He said that due to the inefficiency of the BJP Government, development in agriculture and industries has come down considerably resulting in a large scale unemployment. The Prime Minister and the Chief Minister undertook journeys to different countries, but this drama also failed.The MoUs also remained limited to signing process, but nothing happened in practically. He said that there a lot of difference between the words and deeds of BJP leaders. The atmosphere in the country has become so violence oriented that development has totally stopped. The peace and law & order are san qua nan for development and progress.
But in the BJP rule these two things are replaced by violence and doubtful atmosphere hence there can be no development or investment.Dr. Tanwar said that BJP is an enemy of SCs. BCs and weaker sections. Whenever there is a Court ruling which is against these sections, it is implemented without any delay, but whenever there is a ruling in favour of these sections, it is put on the back-burner. The implementation of provisions of reservation are also being ignored by the BJP Govts. Dr. Tanwar assured that Congress Party after coming into power will remove all these injustices..He said that BJP has always used religion, caste and region to divide the people, wherever such a narrow mentality prevails there can be no place for development. It was all due to the machinations of BJP that Haryana had to face burning either in the name of Rampal episode, Jat Aarkshan or Sisa Dera episode. The Khattar Government after exploiting the name of Cow, Geeta and Saraswati, now is distributing packs of cards to push the youth of Haryana towards the crime.Dr. Tanwar said that at present the mood of the people of the country against Modi and a stronge wave of change is prevailing through-out the country and return of Congress Party under the leadership of Shri Rahul Gandhi is almost assured. He said there was a time that the Congress Party was limited to only 15 seats in Haryana but during the last four years, the Congress Party through its meetings, demonstrations, dharnas, yatras etc. has raised the voice of the people in an effective way and due to this the Congress Party is an a strong position in the State.
The overwhelming response the Congress Party getting from the people, is clearly reflecting that Congress will win all the 10 Lok Sabha seats in Haryana and a record number of Vidhan Sabha seats. He said that Congress Party is ever-ready for the Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha elections. The Party will project a positive agenda through its election manifesto.The PCC President said that “Haryana Bachao-Parivartan Laao” cycle yatra has completed its three phases. The first one started from Kalka in Panchkula district and concluded at Pehowa, the second phase started from Chautala and concluded at Sirsa, whereas the third phase started from Sir Chhotu Ram Memorail Garhi Sampla to Kalanaur. The fourth phase of this yatra will begin from Kundli border on August 21 and conclude at Sonipat City on August 24 after covering all the constituencies of Sonipat district. After the completion of these four phases, 30 Vidhan Sabha constituencies will be covered by this yatra.On the question of a newsman regarding sale-purchase of tickets, Dr. Tanwar said that there is no such tradition of sale-purchase of tickets in the Congress Party. The tickets will be given only to the dedicated and hardworking workers. He referred to the statement of the Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi two days earlier in which he had said that no paratrooper will get Party ticket.Earlier, Dr. Tanwar was received by Shri Jaswant Rana, Secretary General and Shri Sanjay Malhotra, Secretary of Chandigarh Press Club and was presented with bouquet.
