Amit Shah promises to give OBCs more reservation

“I want to ask Soren Babu (JMM’s working president) to explain the stand of the Congress when youths of Jharkhand were demanding Jharkhand’s upgradation as a separate state,” Shah said. He addressed another rally in Garhwa on Thursday. This is Shah’s second visit to Jharkhand this week to address rallies. He blamed the Congress for stalling the Ayodhya case.

RANCHI: Union home minister Amit Shah targeted the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) for entering into an alliance with the Congress in this election while addressing a rally at Chatra, a few hours before campaigning ended for the first phase of assembly polls in Jharkhand.

Shah said it was the Congress which had created hurdles for the creation of a separate Jharkhand state. He reminded voters that Atal Bihari Vajpayee had created Jharkhand as a separate state and the Narendra Modi dispensation is taking it forward.

“I want to ask Soren Babu (JMM’s working president) to explain the stand of the Congress when youths of Jharkhand were demanding Jharkhand’s upgradation as a separate state,” Shah said. He addressed another rally in Garhwa on Thursday. This is Shah’s second visit to Jharkhand this week to address election rallies. Shah tried to woo OBC voters by reminding them about the decision taken by the BJP government at the Centre to grant constitutional status to the National Commission for Backward Classes. “If BJP is voted to power in Jharkhand, a committee would be constituted to give more reservation to OBCs,” he told the gathering and clarified that this would not affect the existing reservation given to SC/STs.

Shah blamed the Congress for stalling the Ayodhya case in court. He told voters that the Supreme Court has cleared the way for the construction of a temple in Ayodhya. Crediting the Raghubar Das government for putting an effective check on the Naxal problem in the state, he said BJP government has focused on developing infrastructure, particularly roads and bridges during its five-year tenure. “The Raghubar Das government has buried Naxalism 20 feet under the earth,” he told voters.
