Devendra Fadnavis has improved image of Maharashtra in 5 years: JP Nadda

“Devendra Fadnavis has changed the face of Maharashtra. The state was known for corruption due to the previous governments. There was a musical chair going on in the state and no party could complete the 5-year term for long in the state,” Nadda said.

BJP National Executive President J P Nadda on Monday said that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has changed the face of Maharashtra, which was marred with corrupt practices.

“Devendra Fadnavis has changed the face of Maharashtra. The state was largely known for corruption due to the previous governments. There was a musical chair going on in the state and no party could complete the 5-year term for long in the state,” Nadda said, addressing BJP workers of Western Maharashtra. He asked party workers to put in all efforts to get the BJP re-elected to power in the state Assembly elections scheduled on October 21.

Nadda said the BJP has managed to change the state’s “corrupt” image in the last five years through a committed and sincere government. “While leaders of other parties are either in jail or making rounds of the court, BJP leaders are the only ones who can truly represent every citizen,” he said.
The BJP leader on Monday announced that the party’s state unit would launch the “Mahasampark abhiyan”, a campaign to reach out to voters, from September 25. “Party workers in every booth should ensure that they reach out to every voter during the campaign,” Nadda said.

Claiming that most political parties in the country were ruled by families, he said: “There are a total of 2,300 registered political parties in the country, of which 59 are regional and seven are national parties… BJP is the only public party, where the leader emerges from bottom to top.” He added that he, along with many senior leaders in the BJP, have made it big despite no family history in politics.

Nadda also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that he has proved that the country “can achieve a lot in various sectors”. “The Union government realising the impact of global slowdown has declared huge tax rebate to corporates three days ago. Party workers should take this decision to people and explain how it would benefit them,” he said.

He also praised the Union government’s decision to abrogate Article 370. “Now, after the decision of abrogating Article 370, we can proudly say Jammu and Kashmir is ours and in complete form. It was possible only due to the willpower of Prime Minister Modi and strategy of Union Home Minister Amit Shah,” he said, adding that “people of Jammu and Kashmir are also happy”.
