BJP workers pledge to root out Congress in 2014
BJP workers pledged to root out ruling Congress party in the next year`s Lok Sabha Election.
New Delhi: BJP workers on Friday pledged to root out ruling Congress party in the next year`s Lok Sabha Election and give people an alternative to the "current corrupt" form of governance.
BJP`s Yuva Morcha president Anurag Thakur administered the pledge to party leaders, workers and supporters at a `Sankalp Sabha` here at its national headquarters.
The ceremony was attended by BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Delhi state chief Vijay Goel, National General Secretary (Org) Ram Lal and senior leader Jagat Prakash Nadda.
"People of this nation are fed up with the corrupt regime and the pledge we are taking today will give bring change in the country.”
"...Congress that has virtually ruled the post- Independent India with few coalition fronts in between. I would say the biggest achievement that BJP has given to this democracy is to give an alternative, an opposition," Rudy said.
Nadda claimed Congress is engaged in a "politics of commission" but BJP works with "politics of mission".
"Congress is a government about commissions, BJP is government about missions. The government has become synonymous with corruption and so let us root out this regime and replace it with a good governance like ours," he said.
Thakur took a swipe at the UPA saying that this government has not one but "many Dhritarashtras" who have "allowed corruption to go unchecked".
"Congress has not one but many `Dhritarashtras`. Corruption cases from 2G scam to Kalmadi-run CWG scam and Coalgate have been allowed to go unchecked," Thakur said.
"Economy has suffered, women safety has become a major issue and farmer suicides have gone up. Isiliye sankalp lijiye ki --`Bhajpa ko jitana hai, kamal ka phool khilna hai` (`Make BJP win. Let the lotus bloom).
"And, the energy of the youth assembled here today has to be translated into a foundation for change that we want to see and change that we want to bring in our country, for us and for our people," Thakur said.
The event also saw a minor chaos on the stage in the beginning as party workers gathered onto the dais. Traffic on Ashoka Road was also disrupted briefly during the function.
