On Tuesday, Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) president Amit Shah addressed the farmers in Nagaur. While addressing the farmers, the party president said that the only way that farmers can double their income by 2022 is by electing Narendra Modi once again as the Prime Minister of the country. Shah also told the farmers that BJP is the only government in the country that cares for the farmers and take initiatives in favour of them. BJP knows to change the electoral slogans in reality, he added.
As per the sources, Shah on his three-day visit to the state asked farmers to vote for the Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he was addressing a huge mass of farmers in Nagaur.
“I and my party owe a debt to Rajasthan. The people of Rajasthan helped the BJP sweep 2014 Lok Sabha polls by electing party’s candidates from all 25 seats. This gave an absolute majority of BJP government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Centre. If there were no 25 MPs from Rajasthan, then there would have been a weak government and such governments do not work,” Shah said, thanking the people of the state for giving all Lok Sabha seats to BJP.
Besides this, Shah also asked the farmers to vote for the party in upcoming assembly and Lok Sabha polls. “I thank you for this. In the upcoming Lok Sabha and assembly elections, you all give support and help BJP form governments in the state at the Centre,” said Shah.
Informing the farmers more about the Bhartiya Janta Party’s aim and moto for the farmers, Shah said that the party from the time of Jana Sangh had given the slogan of “the prosperous farmer, prosperous country”. With the slogan in mind, the party has always worked in the favour of farmers and on the concept of a prosperous farmer. The party president while addressing the farmers also reminded them about the first speech of Prime Minister Modi as per which farmers income will be doubled till 2022.
“Congress governments can never do good to farmers. In the last 70 years, the farmers have been benefited only by BJP governments,” said Shah.
Shah also listed the work that has been done by the Centre and the state government in the favour of agriculture and farmers.
Shah during his three-day visit to the state paid tributes to Mira Bai, Tejaji Maharaj and Amar Singh Rathore, said sources.
