The Prime Minister congratulates the Raghubar Das-led State government for completing its five-year term, a first in Jharkhand since it attained statehood.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday asserted that the BJP governments at the Centre and the State would continue to protect Jharkhand’s ‘jal, jungle and jameen’ (water, forest and land).

Addressing a poll meeting at Daltonganj, he congratulated the Raghubar Das-led State government for completing its five-year term, a first in Jharkhand since it attained statehood.

Condemning last week’s Naxal violence in the poll-bound State, he paid tributes to the four policemen killed in the attack.

“The BJP government has provided good governance in Jharkhand over the past five years. That is why, for the first time in the State’s history, a chief minister completed his five-year term,” he noted.

The Jharkhand government had worked day and night to end corruption in the last five years. “The BJP governments at the Centre and the State would continue to protect Jharkhand’s ‘jal’, jungle and ‘jameen’ [water, forest and land], no matter what the Opposition parties say. The State has made efforts to curb Naxalism and would continue to fight against the menace,” he said.
