Chattisgarh chief Minister Raman Singh on Friday predicted a total wipe out for the Congress from India in the coming days. “You will keep on searching for Congress on India’s map, but you are not going to find it,” he said. Singh was in the district as part of the Vikas Parv kickstarted on the completion of two years of Modi government at the Centre.Launching a scathing attack on Congress, Raman Singh said, “Earlier, it was Congress versus all...Today, it is BJP on one side and all others are trying hard together on the other side. Still, they are not able to win. That is the magic of Narendra Modi.”
The Chhattisgarh CM also blamed the UPA government, led by Congress, for never caring for the welfare of farmers. He took the occasion to announce that in the coming years BJP will form government in Telangana. Observing that Chhattisgarh and Telangana have several similarities, including the problem of Naxalism, Singh said he is trying to overcome it in his state. “(Telangana) overcame Naxalism. I am gearing up. Hopefully that will also be corrected with God’s blessings,” he added.
Referring indirectly to the TRS government in the state, Singh said no chief minister in the country can say injustice is done to his state as the Modi government has increased the share of states in funds by 10 per cent (to 42 per cent).Also speaking on the occasion, Union minister of states for fertilizers and chemical ministry Hansraj Gangadhar Ahir predicted a bleak future for the Congress in the country. Ahir was attending the party’s Ujwal programme.Speaking about the funds allocated to the state for developmental works, the minister said the Centre was giving equal priority to Telangana state.He also assured the opening of Ramagundam Fertilizers company soon.
