Priyanka’s appointment to have no bearing on LS polls: Sushil Modi

Dehradun: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Sunday said the appointment of Priyanka Gandhi as AICC general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh East will have no impact on the outcome of the Lok Sabha polls.

The senior BJP leader also asserted that the achievements during 55 months of the Narendra Modi government have “far outweighed” those in 55 years of the Congress rule.

“People have faith in Narendra Modi who has brought about a major change in their lives by providing 14 crore gas connections among poor women, electrifying villages and providing toilets to more than 95 per cent households,” Sushil Modi told reporters here in reply to a question.

On Priyanka Gandhi’s entry into active politics, he said it will have “no impact” as people are going to vote for a stable and strong government.

They don’t want a government like the one headed by Deve Gowda or IK Gujral at the Centre.

“These elections will be 55 years of Congress rule versus 55 months of Narendra Modi government whose achievements during the short span far outweigh those of successive Congress governments.

“Toilets for every household,rural electrification and free LPG connections to the poor are things no previous government ever thought of. Even Indira Gandhi, despite being a woman, could not think of the plight of women in rural India which had no toilets,” he said.

The Bihar Deputy CM, who was here in connection with BJP’s Bharat ke Man ki Baat Modi ke Saath programme, claimed it was the biggest ever exercise to understand the aspirations of people ahead of the Lok Sabha polls and incorporate their suggestions in party’s Sankalp Patra (manifesto).

The programme is a month-long exercise to seek people’s suggestions to help the BJP prepare its manifesto.

Sushil Modi appealed to people from all sections of society including the media to write their opinions and suggestions and drop them into the advice boxes (sujhao petikas) to be put up by the party in every constituency.

He said 7,000 such ‘sujhao petikas’ will be put up in all Lok Sabha constituencies across the country.
