Amit Shah, BJP president was not sure whether BJP will project anyone as chief ministerial candidate for the upcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. Despite that the elections in the state have a special significance.
At an Lucknow’s event , Shah said in response when he was asked about the decision on chief ministerial candidate will be taken by the party.
He also acknowledged that U.P.’s Assembly polls have their own political importance.
“It is said that route to Delhi passes through Lucknow. It is the biggest and most populated state in the country,” the BJP chief said at a conclave ‘Badhega Pradesh to Banega Desh’ organised by Jagran.
Shah further added that inspite of having political and cultural importance, U.P. has its own importance in terms of development and said that he wants to assure that BJP will take Uttar Pradesh in the development’s path.
Shah said that in 2014 after Modi’s government came to power at the Centre . On it’s list it took three sectors
“First was villages. Around 18,000 were without electrification. We have decided to electrify all the villages by May 2018. We started Mudra Yojna, Jan Dhan Yojna,” he said.
Shah also said that under ‘PM Fasal Yojana’ crop will be ensured at a very nominal price.
“When Atalji left the growth rate was 8.4 per cent, during UPA regime it declined to 4.4 per cent. Within two years of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s regime, the rate has reached 7.9 per cent,” he said.
Shah said whenever Congress came to power, country’s growth rate had been declined.
