New Delhi, 20th November. Addressing massive turnout of people in the Samapan Rally of Janchetna Yatra organized by BJP Delhi Pradesh, Shri Lalkrishna Advani said that the Yatra of BJP against corruption has concluded today but the movement against corruption will continue till the countrymen are satisfied in this regard. He administered an oath to the people present on this occasion “Rishwat na lenge, na denge.” He also raised slogans with the people “Bhrastachar mitana hai, Kaladhan wapas lana hai, Bharat ko naya banana hai.” Shri Advani told that he has never seen such large public meeting in Ramlila Maidan in his 40 days yatra and 50 years of his political career. He heartily congratulated Pradesh BJP President Sh. Vijender Gupta and his colleagues for it. Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta presided over this programme today.
Advaniji told that I am overwhelmed by the massive turnout in Delhi. I will remember whole life the unprecedented welcome accorded to him in the 30 kms route from Ghaziabad to border of Delhi and Ramlila Maidan. During four hours of the rally, the people continued to come in hoards at the end of the rally. The banners and flags of BJP could be seen everywhere in Delhi.
The leaders who were present in the dais of the Samapan Rally include National President Shri Nitin Gadkari, former National President Shri. M. Venkaiah Naidu, Shri Rajnath Singh, Smt. Sushma Swaraj, Sh. Arun Jaitley, NDA Convenor Sh. Sharad Yadav, Sh. Anant Kumar, Sh. Ravishankar Prasad, Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra, Sh. Ramdas Atthavle and representatives of the constituents of NDA. A representative MP of the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Ms. Jailalita specially came to participate in this rally. Pradesh General Secretary Ashish Sood conducted the programmme.
Shri Advani added that this was his sixth National Yatra. He mentioned that this time the blessings of Sh. Atalji was with him but his absence was regrettable. There is acrimony and frustration among the people on the issue of corruption, price spiral, black money in the entire country. The objective for which the Yatra was taken out through 27 states and 5 Centrally Ruled States has been achieved. One has never seen such corrupt and inefficient Government in country. Even after repeated assurances of the Prime Minister and the Government price spiral and corruption are uncontrolled. The intentions of the Government are not good on the issue of ending corruption. People are suffering due to the failure of Government in discharging its responsibilities. For the first time ministers of the Government have been sent to jail. There is lack of political will power in the Government to pass effective Lokpal Bill. He told that in Tamil Nadu and Keral the yatra was given maximum support. I came across many places like Mandi and Pathankot where people created history of Rallies and Public Meetings.
Shri Nitin Gadkari, Shri Sharad Yadav, Smt. Sushma Swaraj, Shri Arun Jaitley, Shri Rajnath Singh, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, Shri Vijender Gupta and leaders of the NDA addressed the Samapan Rally. In his fluent speech Shri Nitin Gadkari told that he wants to assure Shri Advani that he will not take rest till he dislodges the corrupt UPA Government. The Yatra has concluded but not the movement. The struggle of BJP on the issue of corruption, price spiral and black money will continue from the Parliament to the streets of the country. He told that he never saw such headless, untrustworthy government in the country. Explaining the objectives of Janchetna Yatra, Shri Sharad Yadav told that the entire country was facing danger hence Shri Advani took out the Yatra to save the country from this danger and dislodge the corrupt Congress Government. The objective of the Yatra has been achieved. Now we have to build a new country, a new India together. The contribution of the people is required in this struggle for building new India.
Addressing the rally, Shri Vijender Gupta told that the Congress Government is the Government of middlemen, touts and profiteers. Delhi Government had committed land bungling of 5000 crore rupees by allowing occupation of the Government land and the Centre is mum. If Kalmadi is in Jail on the charges of corruption then why Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit who is accused in various bungling is out of jail? Chief Minister committed scam of 25000 crore rupees in CWG. The CAG of India and Shunglu Committee have confirmed it. According to the report of CAG and Shunglu Committee, Smt. Sheila Diskhit should be prosecuted for misusing her position and committing corruption on large scale. But the Congress is completely silent on this issue.
The Lokayukta of Delhi Shri Manmohan Sareen has said that the Chief Minister of Delhi misled the poor people of Delhi for the sake of votes. At the time of Assembly Elections in July 2008 the Chief Minister made promises to the people in the public meetings in entire Delhi that 60,000 cheap houses will be allotted to the poor people. But the poor people have not been provided such houses. The Lokayukta complained to the President of India about it and her Highness the President of India cautioned the Chief Minister against it. Yet the Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh have not taken any action against the Chief Minister of Delhi Smt. Sheila Dikshit. What is the reason one does not know? Why the person who should be in Jail is occupying the post of Chief Minister? Delhi Government is deliberately encouraging corruption and price rise. This Government could decrease taxes but it wants to make up the loss to the treasury due to the loot in CWG by the blood of the people. This is the reason why the circle rates have been increased twice within 8 months. Shri Gupta told that BJP will ensure that the guilty persons are punished if not today then later. The looters of Commonwealth Games will have to go to the Jail.
