"No one can end your reservation," Rajnath Singh assures tribals in Jharkhand

Dumka (Jharkhand): In his address at a public meeting in Jharkhand, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday tore into the opposition for alleging that the BJP was going to end reservations. He assured the tribals that no one could end their reservation. 

Singh was campaigning for BJP candidate Sita Soren in the Dumka constituency, where he rejected the opposition's allegations about the reservation and said that no one can end it.

"The opposition falsely accuses the BJP of ending reservation. But I say that I will never let reservation end. I give assurance to the people of the tribal society that no one can end your reservation," Singh at an election rally in Dumka.

"No corrupt person will escape in the Modi government. Whenever Congress government was in power, corruption prevailed. If we say something against the corrupt, opposition parties say that we did wrong. If we have done wrong, then action will be taken against us. Go to the High Court or Supreme Court. We do not divide anyone on the basis of caste and religion," he said.

Taking potshot at JMM, Singh said once the news came that the Chief Minister of Jharkhand was missing for 24 hours. He had never heard such a thing in his life.

"The people of Jharkhand may be poor but they have self-respect. The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha government has discriminated against you. JMM will be punished for this," Singh said.

In his address he enumerated the works done by PM Narendra Modi, "PM Modi's dream is to eradicate poverty from India. Modi government took the country's economy from 11th position to 5th position," he added.

Singh accused the Congress government of corruption and its ministers who have been jailed.

"Congress and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) are indulging in corruption and are doing politics by lying," Singh said. 

Addressing members of tribal community, he said that tribal society played a big role in India's independence and growth.

"The country is progressing under PM Modi's leadership," Singh remarked.
