UCC, Ayodhya in BJP TS Manifesto

Shah releases manifesto, calls it Modi's vows

Hyderabad: Union home minister Amit Shah said the party will take senior citizens on a free darshan to Ram Mandir in Ayodhya and to Kashi, if elected to power in the state. The party will also form a committee to draft a uniform civil code to consolidate and harmonise various personal laws.

“The party has always fulfilled its promises by the end of its five-year term. This is Modi’s guarantee and we will abide by our words,” Amit Shah said, releasing the party’s manifesto here on Saturday.

On the inaction against alleged corruption in the Chandrashekar Rao government, Shah said, “Leaders like Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy, Vijayashanthi and others never spoke about corruption cases against KCR and are coming out only now having stayed in the BJP for three years. The culture of BJP is not to target anyone. When the probe is complete, action will be taken and have, hence, promised in our manifesto that we will probe all corruption cases with a retired Supreme Court judge.”

“We have, by abolishing Article 370, building Ram Mandir and ending triple talaq, fulfilled our promises. From the days of Deen Dayal Upadhyay, we are following his ‘antyodaya’ path and people know that we do what we promise. Unlike Telangana, created by the Congress, we created three states sans any trouble. For years, the Congress did not heed to the demand for statehood and gave Telangana only to garner votes. BJP stood by its resolution made in Kakinada of one-vote and two-states and played a key role in the movement. We gave complete support for statehood in Parliament,” he said.

Reeling out the benefits that have accrued to Telangana from the Centre, he said, “BJP sanctioned Rs 900 crore for Sammakka Sarakka tribal university, gave turmeric board and reconstituted the tribunal for allocation of Krishna water. The Centre sanctioned 2,500 kms of national highways, gave three Vande Bharat trains to Hyderabad, sanctioned Rs 1,200 crore for Hyderabad Metro, gave an AIIMS to Bibinagar and national highways from Hyderabad to Nagpur and Warangal were laid.”

“PM Kisan Samman Nidhi is being given to 40 lakh farmers. We gave water to every household without corruption. Free ration is being given to 1.90 lakh crore people and the free rice scheme is set to continue for the next five years. We also opened 1.1 crore Jan Dhan accounts,” Shah said.

Questioning the contribution of Chandrashekar Rao, he attributed the failure of the Telangana government to celebrate September 17 as liberation day as an attempt to appease the AIMIM.

“Any CM would launch schemes to develop the state but KCR launches them for commissions. The core issues of water, funds and jobs have been neglected and irrigation projects turned into sources of corruption. The state, which had a surplus budget, has been currently left with Rs 7 lakh crore corruption. The TSPSC exams were leaked and cancelled 17 times. There are two lakh job vacancies in the state. The universities were neglected and the KG to PG slogan has remained a mirage. The Rs 1 lakh loan waiver promise was also not fulfilled,” Shah said.

“KCR’s only agenda is to make his son CM. He cheated Dalits by failing to keep his promise to make a Dalit CM. Religion-based reservations will be removed and apportioned to BCs. I have come here to assure the people on the manifesto on behalf of Modi,” he said.
