Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday hailed the Congress-JMM-RJD victory in the Jharkhand Assembly polls as rejection of the divisive politics of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Welcoming the election results, the Chief Minister said the reversal of the ruling BJP’s fortunes, which had begun earlier this year, has taken another leap forward with these polls. The results had resoundingly crushed BJP’s ambitions of spreading its tentacles across the length and breadth of the country, and paved the way for the creation of a BJP-Mukta Bharat, he added.
With these results, BJP’s divisive agenda had not only been exposed but had also been rejected outright by the people, said Captain Amarinder, adding that the mandate marked the defeat of the ruling party’s communal politics.
Coming at a time when a strong anti-BJP wave was sweeping the nation, as manifest in the widespread public protests against the unconstitutional CAA and NRC of the central government, the Jharkhand results validate the Congress party’s secular agenda, said the Chief Minister.
People want development and progress, in the backdrop of the Constitutional ethos of unity in diversity; they do not want to be divided by vested interests in the name of religion, Captain Amarinder said, adding that the BJP had patently failed to read the people’s mood and pulse.
The people of India, especially its large youth populace, had seen through BJP’s all-round failure, as evidenced in the growing unemployment, deepening economic woes and escalating prices etc, and voted against its regressive policies in favour of development and growth, the Chief Minister asserted.
It is only a matter of time now for the saffron hue to be lifted from the nation’s face, and give way to a bright future for its people, the Chief Minister predicted, adding that false promises and fake claims cannot take any political party far - something which the BJP has dogmatically failed to appreciate or accept.
