Amit Shah makes big statement on left-wing extremism; ‘Will wipe out Maoists before 2024’
On Saturday Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the state of Jharkhand along with the entire country will be made free of Left-Wing Extremism (LWE) and Maoists before the 2024 elections.
The Home Minister is on a visit to Jharkhand. As the BJP is gearing up for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections as well as the Assembly polls, Amit Shah’s visit is considered crucial for the party.
Amit Shah was addressing the Maha Sankalp rally at Chaibasa in West Singhbhum district where he also underscored the drop in the number of LWE cases in Jharkhand.
Shah said, “During the rule of Congress, 2,258 cases of Naxalism were reported in 2009. And in 2021, this number has reduced to 509. I will tell you, before the 2024 elections, we will try that the whole country is free from the grip of Naxalism.”
Shah also said that the BJP government gave jobs to youngsters who used to pick up weapons, and provided basic amenities such as electricity, roads, and water while fighting the extremists.
Taking a jibe at the Jharkhand CM, Shah said, “CM Hemant Soren is a tribal but this government is anti-tribal. In the current tenure, corruption has peaked in Jharkhand, land grabbers are active and CM is not fulfilling any of his responsibilities. Today in Jharkhand tribal women are being forcibly married and their land is being grabbed. Cheating is being done in the name of food, employment, and education. You will not be forgiven for what you are doing for your vote bank politics. The greed of the vote bank cannot be above the tribal interests.”
