Jashpur. After the completion of the first phase of voting in Chhattisgarh, the election campaign for the second phase has started. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi reached Jashpur on Wednesday for election campaign and addressed a public meeting. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in the public meeting that there is a big conspiracy of BJP behind calling tribals as forest dwellers. In fact, people from the tribal community were the first to arrive here, hence the tribals have the first right over water and forests. BJP is busy evicting the tribals by setting up industries in the forests.
BJP insults tribals
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi further said that the Congress party respects the tribals, while the BJP is insulting the tribals. Mentioned a viral video from Madhya Pradesh and said that a BJP leader is seen urinating on a tribal youth in Madhya Pradesh. Rahul Gandhi sarcastically said that BJP leaders never do such acts on cattle, but they can be clearly seen insulting the tribals.
BJP focuses on industrialists not farmers
Referring to paddy, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the Congress government in Chhattisgarh wants to make the tribals more prosperous. In Chhattisgarh, the support price of paddy for farmers will be increased from Rs 2600 to Rs 3200 per quintal and further the farmers will be strengthened by increasing the price of paddy to Rs 3600. Whereas Bharatiya Janata Party pays attention only to the welfare of industrialists.
