‘MODI IN, CHAMLING OUT’ SAYS BJP
Gangtok, 05 Apr: ‘Modi in, Chamling out’ said Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP), National General Secretary, Ram Madhav while addressing a campaigning meeting held at Truck Stand at Ranipool today.
Taking on Sikkim Democratic Front and accusing the party and leadership of corruption, Mr Madhav said that the only solution to corruption is punishment as per the law and the entry of CBI into Sikkim is inevitable as the Prime Minister has zero tolerance for corruption.
“Every time we talk about CBI, the CM gets angry and brings up Old Laws to prevent the entry of CBI into Sikkim,” he alleged.
At the same time, he said that pending issues like the Assembly seat reservation for Limboo-Tamang will be dealt with immediately after the election and protection of Old Laws will be ensured.
“It is not the Chief Minister who can say he will protect and preserve the sanctity of special status, provisions under Article 371F, it is the Prime Minister who is the real protector and we assure that the old laws of the state will continue to be protected as we are the real ‘Chowkidars’ of the nation,” said Mr Madhav.
All the north eastern states under the leadership of the BJP government and Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has already started the journey of development whereas the state of Sikkim is lagging behind on all fronts of development including basic needs, he stated.
The Chief Minister claims that Sikkim is self-sufficient and showcases the GDP and per capita income but one thing must be understood, without the support of the Government of India, the so called self-sufficiency will not continue nor will the state be in a position to speak of GDP and per capita income, Mr Madhav added.
He went on to accuse the SDF government of misusing funds from the Centre meant for development of the State.
BJP is ready to be an alternative if the people of Sikkim want a fresh and honest government, said the BJP national general secretary.
“If given a chance we will showcase what a national party with a good intention can do for the state of Sikkim. So far the BJP led government at the Centre has introduced more than 136 welfare schemes for the poor but none of the schemes have been implemented in the state in the true sense,” said State BJP president, DB Chauhan.
Mr Chauhan, who is contesting from Arithang vowed to convert his constituency into a model constituency.
MP candidate, Laten Sherpa said that he has the courage to raise his voice even though he is not as educated as other candidates and is ready to sacrifice everything for the State.
The meeting was also attended by National Secretary and Sikkim BJP In-Charge, Rajnish Kumar, Election In-Charge Sikkim, Nitin Nabin and the 12 Assembly candidates of BJP.
