BJP holds public meetings in run-up to rally

It was held to honour Prime Minister Narendra Modi for passing a Bill to confer ownership rights to more than 40 lakh people.

The Delhi BJP on Sunday organised two public meetings in Mehrauli and Mundka Assembly constituencies in the run-up to the rally to be held on December 22 at Ramlila Maidan to “thank” Prime Minister Narender Modi for passing a Bill to confer ownership rights to more than 40 lakh people of 1,731 unauthorised colonies of Delhi.

Union Minister and Delhi Election Co-Incharge Hardeep Singh Puri, adressing a rally, said that the people of Delhi want to get rid of the “false claims and hollow promises” made by the Kejriwal government and that the time has come for all areas of Delhi to be developed.

“Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced a populist manifesto and is now announcing new freebies but he has forgotten that the people who give mandate for power can also dislodge them from power,” Mr. Puri said.

Delhi Pradesh president Manoj Tiwari said that the BJP is committed to the welfare of poor and needy persons because it understands their sufferings and is committed to end it. “BJP does what it says and has fulfilled all its promises. Congress and AAP tried their best to mislead the people on the decisions made by BJP government but failed,” Mr. Tiwari said.

He added that during the last five years, the AAP government could not do anything but that in view of the upcoming elections it is making announcements about false schemes.
