Trying to make voters vote in favor of the party. Today Congress National President Mallikarjun Kharge and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot reached Vair Assembly in Bharatpur and addressed the public meeting. Vair Assembly seat of Bharatpur district is reserved for Scheduled Caste category. There are more voters from SC caste here and that is why National President Mallikarjuna has addressed the public meeting here due to the arrival of Dalit class.
What did the National President of Congress say?
Congress National President Mallikarjun Kharge, in his address, made Dalit issue an issue and attacked the BJP government fiercely. President Kharge also fiercely targeted the Modi government on black money and unemployment and while praising the public welfare schemes released by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, appealed to the people to vote in favor of Congress. While addressing this public meeting in support of Bhajan Lal Jatav, MLA from Vair Assembly seat of Bharatpur district and PWD Minister in the government, Congress National President Mallikarjun Kharge tried to woo 1 lakh 23 thousand voters.
Speaker Kharge speaks on beating of Dalit officer by MLA
Regarding the beating of electricity department officer Harsh Balmiki by Bari MLA Girraj Malinga, Speaker Kharge said that Harsh Balmiki, who is an officer in the electricity department, was beaten by MLA Girraj Singh Malinga. I and the CM had gone to see the person whose life was saved with great difficulty, that is why I have come late to you. We had decided that we will not give ticket to the person who raised his hand on the official of Dalit community and we did not give ticket to that MLA. Bharatiya Janata Party has made such a person its candidate.
The family members of Harsh Valmiki i.e. officer of Dalit community have expressed gratitude to CM Ashok Gehlot and CM Ashok Gehlot has assured all possible treatment and help. Taking aim at PM Modi, he said, “He calls himself a messiah for the poor and Dalits and is encouraging the person who beats up an officer of the Dalit community by giving him a ticket.” Speaker Kharge spoke about what happened to Dalits in Madhya Pradesh. Indecent behavior was also mentioned. In the BJP government in MP, a Dalit person is urinated in his mouth. He also attacked RSS and said that this organization is also destroying the country. He said that the PM had said that every year there will be 2 crore jobs and doubling of farmers’ income but the Modi government has not fulfilled the promises made to the public.
He said that the Congress government fulfills every promise it makes. He said that Modi government has handed over government companies to private companies. He said that the Congress government built factories and the Modi government is working on selling them. He said that there was a promise to provide jobs to 30 lakh people but they have given jobs to less than one lakh people. It is said that elephant’s teeth are more for show and for eating, such is the solution of Modi government. On one hand, look at Rajasthan, I have had 4 to 5 visits to Rajasthan, wherever I go, people praise the public welfare schemes of the Rajasthan government. Loans of more than 15 crore rich people have been waived off under the BJP government. Nothing was done to the farmers. In BJP government, the rich become richer and the poor become poorer, while Congress takes everyone along. He has appealed for the victory of Congress candidates from seven assembly constituencies of Bharatpur district.
Chief Minister also addressed the public meeting
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot enumerated the public welfare schemes run by the Congress government. He said that there has been a lot of development in water, electricity, education, health services and roads in Rajasthan. Besides, a pension of Rs 1 crore has been given to the elderly, disabled, widows and women. Insurance of Rs 25 lakh under which free treatment and medicines will be available.
