Dynasty-led Congress cannot understand BJP work culture: Dr Jitendra – Jammu and Kashmir Latest News | Tourism
SHIMLA, November 1: Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science and Technology; Minister of State (Independent Charge) Earth Sciences; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh said here today that the dynasty led Congress cannot understand the work culture of the BJP.
Addressing a press conference here ahead of the State Assembly polls, Dr Jitendra Singh was responding to the Congress statement that the BJP has no confidence in Himachal Pradesh and that is why all of its national leaders were coming to the state for the election campaign.
Dr. Jitendra Singh said those who say so may not be aware of the workings of the BJP and its tradition which has existed since the beginning. He said BJP is a cadre based party, which is not controlled by any dynasty and here every Karyakarta is equal that’s why whenever there is an election at any level , be it the Panchayat or the Legislative Assembly or the Lok Sabha and whatever the state. , all party members from top to bottom collectively join the campaign. We have followed the same practice in other states in the past and it is the same practice that is also followed here, he added.
Stressing the importance of having a BJP government in Himachal Pradesh that could work in tandem with the Modi government at the Centre, Dr Jitendra Singh said the unexplored resources of Himalayan states like Himachal Pradesh are vital to enrich the India‘s future economy over the next 25 years. He said huge Himalayan geo-resources have yet to be fully explored, which will contribute to the socio-economic development of the Himalayan region as well as the country as a whole.
The minister said that while over the past 75 years the western and southern states have mainly contributed to the industrial and economic development of India, now is the time to harness the vast resources of India. Himalayas, including its bioresources, glaciers, snowfields, etc. In order to ensure that Himachal Pradesh gets its share and contributes in making India 100, it is important to have a government that translates the ground level central schemes in the state as much as possible . This is only possible when we repeat the BJP government in the state, he said.
Citing several examples, Dr Jitendra Singh said Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a series of reforms for different sections of society soon after he took office in 2014, but Himachal Pradesh had to wait three years before the BJP government took power in the state in 2017 and only then was it possible to effectively implement all these schemes in the state.
Citing the example of how the ‘dual engine’ works, Dr Jitendra Singh said Jairam Thakur’s government has continued Modi Ayushman Bharat’s program in the state for which more than 4 lakh people have registered while the government of the state has supplemented it with the “Him Care” scheme which has so far registered 5 lakh people. Similarly, Modi’s Ujjwala scheme has reached 1.37 lakh people in the state while Mukhyamantri Grahni Yojana has supplemented it by reaching 3 lakh households, he said.
The minister said that in the next 25 years of Amrti-Kal, Himalayan states like Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir and North Eastern states will bring significant added value to build India’s future economy and only the BJP government can ensure optimum contribution from Himachal Pradesh.
