He said the party will contest election and emerge victorious on the agenda of growth and development.

“During the UPA rule, the image of the government in the world was that of a scam-tainted government but since Modi became Prime Minister, the image has positively changed,” the minister said.

He also condemned the violence at Jawahar Bagh in Mathura and called it a “shameful” incident.

“It is the failure of Akhilesh Yadav government in UP where anarchism rules,” Kalraj said.
