The state excutive committee meeting on Sunday resolved to back Devendra Fadnavis for the chief minister’s position for the second time.
Mumbai: BJP working president JP Nadda on Sunday claimed that by ‘Congress-mukt Bharat’, the party actually means that it wants to get India rid of “corruption and commission”.
“When we say, Congress-mukt Bharat, we are not really talking about the party. ‘BJP-yukt’ means development-oriented. It means focussing on providing good quality of service to citizens and developing the country,” Nadda said while addressing the BJP’s Maharashtra state executive committee meeting.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s victories in the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha election were an outright rejection of vote bank and caste-based politics. Before 2014, India’s image was that of a corrupt country facing policy paralysis and lacking a clear sense of direction. Now, Indians as well as people of Indian origin abroad feel proud to be Indian,” he further added.
At the meeting, he highlighted the Modi government’s achievements in health sector, poverty elevation, infrastructure, agriculture and rural development. Recalling that ‘Achhe din ayenge’ (good days will come) and ‘Desh badal raha hai’ (the country is changing) were BJP’s slogans during its successful election campaign in 2014, Mr Nadda added that the good days have arrived in India and that the country has already changed in the last five years.
The state excutive committee meeting on Sunday resolved to back Devendra Fadnavis for the chief minister’s position for the second time. The state goes to poll in October 2019.
