BJP to Win Big: Shivraj Chouhan:
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan asserted on Friday that the BJP would secure a historic mandate in the year-end assembly polls, ensuring their continued rule in the state.
He attributed his confidence to the overwhelming response received during the ongoing ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatra,’ a large-scale outreach initiative initiated by the Bharatiya Janata Party on September 3, which has garnered tremendous enthusiasm among the people across the state.
Mr. Chouhan declared, while addressing party workers here, that the Jan Ashirwad Yatra is generating an unparalleled and enthusiastic response from the people across the state. He added that he could sense the sentiments of the people during the yatra, leading him to assert confidently that it would result in the party’s most significant victory in the upcoming state assembly elections.
The chief minister remarked that the yatra received acclaim from the people wherever it traversed, and he had never witnessed such fervor among the people for the party’s yatra before.
BJP initiated five yatras across the state, which began on September 3 and are set to converge in a grand event on September 25, coinciding with the birth anniversary of BJP ideologue Deendayal Upadhyaya. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to address a Bharatiya Janata Party rally on that day.
The BJP’s mass outreach program has already reached approximately two crore people in the state, according to a party spokesperson.
Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, leading one of the yatras in Budhni, which is currently represented by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, asserted on Friday that Bharatiya Janata Party would secure a two-thirds majority in the upcoming Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. He noted that in previous assembly elections, BJP only launched one yatra before the polls in the state, but this time, they opted for five yatras to ensure extensive coverage of the state’s population.
In response, the opposition Congress dismissed the claims made by the two senior BJP leaders, stating that they were indulging in wishful thinking. Congress spokesperson K K Mishra confidently stated that Congress would secure a majority in the upcoming state assembly elections.
