DANTEWADA: BJP national vice president and former chief minister Raman Singh said key issues for the by-poll will the developmental works undertaken in Dantewada for last 15 years during BJP government. On that basis the BJP will win the election.
He was interacting with media persons at Jagdalpur circuit house before leaving for Dantewada. He also had an interaction with local BJP leaders also.
Raman Singh further said Dantewada seat has been traditional BJP seat. The failure of 9-months rule of Congress government will be also brought before the people. In the last nine months, the total developmental works have come to a standstill.
“The total BJP team is backing Ojasvi Mandavi, wife of late Bhima Mandavi. The party has given the ticket,” he pointed out.
On Amit Jogi’s arrest, he said it is Congress government and the administration is also under them. There is no need to worry or an issue as arrest of Amit has nothing to do with BJP. If government does any work, then should have courage to accept it, why to be bothered over it.
Raman registers ire over code violation
Former Chief Minister Raman Singh registered his anger and raised question over the role of Dantewada Returning Officer cum District Collector alleging that timing for filing of nomination papers were changed three times. Earlier, timing of 12-1 PM was given later extended to 2-3 PM and then 4.00 PM against which Congress candidate were given timing as per their choice. RO should be fair enough keeping aside caste and dynasticism. He said if such violation continues then would go for complaint with Election Commission and Centre. Already complaint has been lodged with observer. Let see what action is taken, he added.
Meanwhile, Returning Officer Topeshwar Verma said till polling day, one after other such complaints will be done, by the Opposition leaders.
