Aizawl (zoramobserver.com): BJP national general secretary Arun Singh on Friday came heavily on Lal Thanhawla led Congress government in Mizoram saying there is corruption everywhere and people are fed up of the government.
Sing who came to Mizoram on a three day visit to interact with party workers as part of strengthening the BJP in Mizoram told a press conference here on Friday that the party influence is rapidly surging high in Mizoram and people felt secure under the able leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi .
He expressed hope that the BJP, like in Manipur, will come up from no single MLA to majority and will form government one day in Mizoram.
Taking out a dig at Congress led state government, Singh said people are frustrated with it as there is no employment and employment generation is very negligible in Mizoram.
“There is no basic amenity, no health facility is available to the poorest of the poor. Road conditions are worse and the government is not providing pucca houses to the Mizo people. Everywhere there is corruption and people are fed up with the congress,” Singh said as he lambasted the state government for allegedly not implementing the central schemes effectively.
He said that the BJP led central government is focusing on Mizoram and is committed to provide all possible helps to the state.
“We want to take everyone with us. There would be no discrimination and equal upliftment of each and every section of society would be ensured. We want to see the happiness of the poor and basic amenities would be provided to the poorest of the poor,” Singh said.
He added that while other states are growing, Mizoram lacks development and is most backward in term of facilities as the central schemes are allegedly not implemented properly and all major contracts were awarded to Congress workers.
Singh on Wednesday visited Kolasib and held interaction with party workers and party leaders there on issue pertaining to strengthening of the party in Mizoram.
He said that party workers are enthusiastic and they are anxious to see the BJP coming to power in Mizoram because of the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Replying to media on the general perception in Mizoram that BJP is a communal party, Singh said the party strongly believed in secularism and equality to all irrespective of cast, creed and religion. “There is no discrimination on ground of sex, cast, creed and religion and all religions are respected under BJP government,” he said.
He also expressed hope that the BJP would be able to make inroad in the next assembly elections in Mizoram. He however, refused to comment on beef ban saying the central government has already clarified it and there is no need of additional clarification.
