Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday addressed a rally in poll-bound Jharkhand and said that in the last 5 years, Narendra Modi government and Raghubar Das government have uprooted Naxalism from the state and cleared the path for development. The Home Minister said this at a poll rally in Chakradharpur.
Amit Shah further hit out at the opposition saying, “Due to thirst for power, today Hemant Soren is trying to become Chief Minister while sitting on the lap of Congress. Their objective is to get power but BJP’s objective is to push forward the state on the path of development.”
“I am sure Jharkhand wants Kashmir to be an integral part of India. Jharkhand wants terror to end. Jharkhand wants Naxalism to end. Jharkhand wants Ramlalla’s temple to be built in Ayodhya,” Home Minister Shah added.
