Bhopal: BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday said his party was too strong to be defeated in Chhattisgarh.

Flagging of the month-long “Atal Vikash Yatra”, undertaken by Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh at Dongergarh in Rajnandg-aon district in his state, Mr Shah said, “The BJP government is firmly entrenched in Chhattisgarh like “Angad ka paon (feet of mythological character Angad) and it cannot be uprooted”.

He said the Raman Singh government has ensured all round development of the state after it was carved out of Madhya Pradesh in 2000 and added that income of the people in the state would double by 2025.

The yatra would cover 65 out of total 90 Assembly constituencies in the state.

He lambasted Congress president Rahul Gandhi for seeking accounts of four-year-old Narendra Modi government at the Centre, saying, “Let Mr Gandhi first give the account on works done by his family in last four generations.”

He also took a jibe at Mr Gandhi for questioning the Chhattisgarh government earlier as to why it did not buy cell phones distributed to the below poverty line families in the state from the Central PSU, BHEL.
