Hamirpur (Himachal Pradesh), Feb 19 (PTI) Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur has urged Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers to introspect on the reasons for the party's defeat in the Himachal Pradesh assembly elections and rectify the shortcomings ahead of next year's Lok Sabha elections. Called to do on Sunday.
Addressing party workers during the two-day BJP meeting here, Thakur discussed the Centre's achievements in the recent Union Budget and various schemes related to women, farmers and youth.
He said that the Center has taken care of every section in the budget and there are immense possibilities for the development of all.
Thakur also targeted the Congress and said that it won the Himachal Pradesh assembly elections by lying to the public. He said, "Within just two months of forming the government, the Congress has taken a loan of more than three thousand crore rupees."
The BJP leader alleged that before the elections, the Congress had promised Rs 1,500 to every woman in the state, but the number of beneficiaries has been drastically reduced by changing the eligibility criteria.
Earlier, reacting to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's call for the entire opposition to come together ahead of the next general elections, Thakur said such attempts had failed in the past as well.
He said that neither the ideology of the opposition nor their intention is clear.
Thakur said that the BJP would win for the third time in a row in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections as the country has moved forward honestly under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He said, “Nitish's pain is clearly visible in his own statement. Once again corruption, "Gunda Raj" and "Jungle Raj" are ruling in Bihar and the public is upset. Therefore, fearing defeat, he is trying to unite the opposition.
