Dehradun, July 1: Ahead of the 2017 Assembly polls in Uttarakhand, BJP on Thursday, June 30 asked its party cadre to "publicise" Centre's "achievements" and prepare a "chargesheet" against Harish Rawat government terming it as "the most corrupt government" in the state's history.
The appeal to publicise the Centre's "achievements", especially what it has done for the empowerment of the poor and women and expose the current dispensation was made by BJP national secretary and media incharge Shrikant Sharma at a day-long party workshop here.
"Taking Centre's achievements especially in the field of empowering poor and women through schemes like Jan Dhan Yojana and Ujjwala Yojana to people and exposing the state's most corrupt government alone can power the BJP to victory in the next Assembly polls," Sharma said.
Describing Rawat's continuance in office as a "plain political manipulation", he said the state Cabinets decision to pass the Appropriation Bill once again proves that the legislation had been defeated in the House and the government had fallen on March 18.
"Rawats continuance in office despite being reduced to a minority is pure political manoeuvre," he said. Calling the Rawat government as "the most corrupt government" Uttarakhand had seen since its creation, he said the sting operation against the CM bore testimony to the fact.
He asked party workers to go to people and convince them that 2017 Assembly elections was an opportunity for them to get rid of a government "steeped in corruption" and install a "development-oriented" government.
