Jaipur: BJP president Amit Shah Sunday said his party works for all castes and communities.
“This is the specialty of the BJP. It is not the party of any one caste or community. Our leader Prime minister Narendra Modi says the mantra for development is ‘sabka sath sabka vikas’. Everyone in the country should get the opportunity to develop, Shah said during a programme in Pali district.
“BJP par kabhi kisi samaj ka thappa nahi laga (BJP was never branded as a party of a particular community),” he said, adding that the party has people from Mali, Gurjar, Jat and other castes.
“BJP has become the party of all,” Shah said, adding that after becoming prime minister in 2014, in which Rajasthan played an important role as the party won all 25 Lok Sabha seats in the state, Narendra Modi worked for the development of all backward classes.
Referring to Congress president Rahul Gandhi as “Rahul Baba”, Shah said four generations of the Gandhi-Nehru family ruled the country but backward classes did not get justice in that period.
He said the Modi government had worked for getting backward classes commission constitutional status. The party president also highlighted the schemes and programmes launched by the Centre and state governments like Mudra Yojna, Annapurna Rasoi Yojna, Bhamashah Yojna among others.
He also said the Modi government took a decision to increase MSP of crops to support farmers.
