BJP targets K'taka, Tripura, Mizoram to 'free India of Congress rule'

BJP targets K'taka, Tripura, Mizoram to 'free India of Congress rule'

Bengaluru, Dec 31 (UNI) BJP National President Amit Shah on Sunday rolled out the party's plan to 'totally' rid India of Congress rule, by registering victory in the coming elections of Karnataka, Tripura and Mizoram.

Presiding over the party's Core Committee meeting here, ahead of the crucial Assembly elections in Karnataka to be held during early 2018, he exhorted the party workers and leaders to brace up for the challenge, to free the country of Congress 'presence'.

He also rolled out a plan on how to win at least 150 seats in the 224-member Karnataka Assembly, the only major state, where Congress is in power, other than Punjab.

Briefing the reporters, Union Minister H N Ananth Kumar said Mr Shah had asked the party cadre to span out to the 'minute' booth level, like party workers be designated to every page of the voters list containing about 30 voters, to ensure the southern state is back in the BJP kitty, after the party lost badly due to internal bickering during the 2013 Assembly polls.

With Assembly polls just four months away in this state, he asked the leaders to organise OBC, SC/ST and Women conferences of the party in each segment, while telling the BJP Yuva Morcha to take out a public campaign across the state between February 15 to 22.

Mr Kumar said Mr Shah took strong exception to the Congress government in Karnataka taking many decisions against the predominant Hindu Community and turned it into an Anti-Hindu State. This had resulted in communal disturbances. The government had pushed the state to a debt trap, by taking more than Rs 2.5 lakh crore of loans from different sources and was at the 'brink of bankruptcy,' he pointed out.

He said more than 3500 farmers had committed suicide during the Congress rule since 2013, adding that the ryots were under great duress.

Mr Kumar said in a major resolution of the meeting held here, Mr Shah informed the leaders and workers not to stop till BJP wins the Karnataka elections under the leadership of B S Yeddyurappa and ensure that the party gains a comfortable majority by winning at least 150 seats.



He said the ongoing BJP Parivartana Yatra, which had covered 145 Assembly segments in Karnataka, during its three-month voyage, had been impressive under the leadership of Mr Yeddyurappa.

The yatra has evoked huge response and once the campaign covers the entire state, it will ensure BJP's win in the coming elections, he claimed.

Mr Shah further asked the leaders to highlight the corrupt rule of the scam-ridden Congress government in Karnataka and take to the people, the BJP programmes that had been successful during its recent victory at Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

Mr Shah told the party workers that BJP will win in Karnataka, on the lines of the strategy adopted in Maharashtra and Haryana, Mr Kumar added.
