Hamirpur: Union Minister Anurag Thakur on Friday refused to make any statement over Home Minister Amit Shah’s remarks that chants like “goli maro…” words would have avoided by BJP leaders.
“No comment,” said Anurag Thakur, when questioned by reporters about the Amit Shah crowd raising slogans like “goli maro…” in replying to the junior minister’s certain comments during an election rally addressed by him.
While addressing media, Thakur said despite losing the Delhi assembly polls, the BJP has emerged stronger as people are still with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He said “There are several states where non-BJP parties are in power as the voting pattern for the elections in states and nation is different. In non-BJP states too, the BJP had secured more votes than the ruling parties in those states in the Lok Sabha elections,”.
Thakur also mocked the Congress party for claiming that the developmental works have been ignored in India in general and Himachal in particular.
The people are not able to see developmental works in India and the state should “change the number of their spectacles” to see how much development has taken place all over the country including Himachal Pradesh, he added.
Highlighting the 15th Finance Commission report, Thakur said the central government has allocated much more grant to Himachal and it would further accelerate the pace of progress in the state.
Responding to a question on price rise, Thakur said that prices have remained under control during the BJP government’s tenure.
The prices of necessary commodities had rather skyrocketed during the UPA I and II regimes, he said that if there were some instances of price rise for a month or so were natural phenomena due to natural calamities.
Thakur Termed the allegations that Himachal Pradesh was allocated lesser fund for railways works ibn the state as “untrue and false” he claimed and said the hilly state was rather given proportionately higher funds and it would soon be reflected due to development of railway network in the state.
Earlier the minister listened to the grievances and suggestions of the people at his native village, Hamirpur, and sorted out most of them on the spot.
He also took part in a function at Morsoo village and distributed lamps, cycles and heaters to the needy people of Morsoo gram panchayat.
