Will Cong fight election with tainted leadership: Shah

Shah during his address to party workers in Chhattisgarh.

Amit Shah on Friday sought a reply from the Congress leadership on whether it will fight the election in Chhattisgarh with a tainted leadership.

Shah, who is on a two-day tour in the state, addressed party booth level workers and leaders in Ambikapur and Bilaspur.

"Will the party (the Congress) register victory with leadership involved in sleaze CD and reported sting operation for party ticket?" he asked.

"The BJP never relies on hereditary but jumps into elections on the basis of hardworking, dedicated and involved ‘God-like’ party workers. It is the party workers who infuse energy into the party and push it to victory," he said.

Praising Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, Shah said that elections will be held in the state for the third consecutive time under Raman Singh and added that the state has taken leaps and bounds in the development sector and would continue to do so.

Shah asked party workers to reach out to voters, informing them about the welfare schemes of the Centre and the state.

"The State and Centre have pushed development and taken it to new heights," he said and added that it was unfortunate when Chhattisgarh was formed, it had inherited fear, poverty, Maoism, backwardness along with other ills.

"In the year 2003, the cloud before the eyes of voters became clear. A new dawn emerged in people's faith on the BJP. The first BJP government laid the foundation of development and the confidence and trust of people continued for the third term," he said.

The BJP national president further said that now Chhattisgarh is inching towards a model state with sensitivity towards issues and aspirations of the people.

" The Congress is day-dreaming to form the government but it will not," he said.

Shah highlighted schemes of state and central governments and also listed their achievements.
