The Asian Age - - Nation -

Ranchi, Sept. 16: BJP pres­i­dent Amit Shah on Satur­day tar­geted Congress vice-pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi over the rule of the Nehru-Gandhi po­lit­i­cal fam­ily, ask­ing him to give the ‘hisab’ (ac­count) of per­for­mance of four gen­er­a­tions of his fam­ily. Ad­dress­ing a ‘Garib Kalayan Mela’ here, Mr Shah said, “Rahul baba speaks a lot in Amer­ica. But first of all Rahul baba should give ‘hisab’(ac­counts) of his four gen­er­a­tions which had ruled the coun­try for 50 years”.

Stat­ing that the BJP has launched sev­eral de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes in the three years, he said that Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi is stand­ing like a rock with Jhark­hand for its de­vel­op­ment.

Mr Shah praised chief min­is­ter Raghubar Das and his team for tak­ing the state on the path of de­vel­op­ment and giv­ing a cor­rup­tion-free rule in the state. All round de­vel­op­ment has taken place in Jhark­hand, he said.

He also praised the Raghubar Das gov­ern­ment for bring­ing Jhark­hand to the se­cond po­si­tion after Gu­jarat with a growth rate of 8.6 per cent.

Mr Shah said that for­mer Prime Min­is­ter A.B. Va­j­payee had cre­ated Jhark­hand and the present cen­tral gov­ern­ment headed by Naren­dra Modi is de­vel­op­ing it.

The BJP pres­i­dent said that in 2014 Modi dur­ing his Lok Sabha elec­tion cam­paign used to say that if the party came to power the east­ern part of the coun­try would be de­vel­oped, which did not hap­pen un­der to pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ments.

As many as 46,325 ben­e­fi­cia­ries got ben­e­fits worth a to­tal `340 crore un­der var­i­ous schemes at the ‘Garib Kalyan Mela’.

Prad­han Mantri Ujjwala Yo­jana, Mu­dra Health Card, Fasal Bima Yo­jana and Grameen Bus Seva were some of the schemes.
