Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Wednesday said that if people of Punjab want development to continue in the state, they would have to follow the path of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Addressing a public gathering in Ludhiana, he termed Modi as “Vikas Purush” (development man) and emphasised that if the Centre and state government are of same party, the development would be rapid.
Watch what else is making news:
“The Akali-BJP coalition government in Punjab is a symbol of communal harmony and prosperity. With PM Modi’s government at the Centre and a coalition government in the state, unprecedented development has taken place in Punjab with numerous welfare schemes being rolled out for the poor and migrant labourers working here,” he said.
Pointing out that the victory of the coalition in the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation polls was a “stamp of approval” on Modi’s policies, Tiwari exhorted people to vote in a similar fashion and form an Akali-BJP government in the state for the third successive time. “I am a representative of Delhi and nobody knows the Congress and AAP better than me. AAP has betrayed the public of Delhi and I am sure Punjab’s voters won’t tolerate him (Kejriwal),” he said.
