''I also appeals the people of the state especially the youth to become the votaries of good governance and advocates for a comprehensive development of the state'' he said Assuring that if his party comes to power it will review the performance of the government once in every two years and accommodate the feelings of the people in ensuring inclusive growth in implementing the policies and programmes. ''The party will implement all the promises it had made in its election manifesto if comes to power'' Mr Rajnath Singh said.
Referring to the fall of the BJP government in the state which ultimately led to the imposition of President's rule and the dissolution of the Karnataka Assembly Mr Singh said that ''BJP has been ditched but the party never took any step that may have led to breach of trust''.
