Amit Shah confirms BJP will not eliminate reservation laws

In a rally in Bhandara district, Union Home Minister Amit Shah assured that BJP will not scrap reservation if the party secures 400 seats in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. He emphasized the importance of maintaining and upholding reservation policies to benefit marginalized communities.

Shah highlighted the BJP’s track record of not tampering with reservation policies despite having a majority in the government. He reiterated Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s commitment to safeguarding reservation and ensuring social justice for all communities. Shah also pointed out that the BJP government has taken significant steps towards socio-economic development, such as abrogating Article 370 and ending Triple Talaq.

During his speech, Shah outlined the BJP’s vision for the future, including promises of a Uniform Civil Code, free healthcare for senior citizens, piped gas connections, free electricity for the underprivileged, and ample opportunities for youth empowerment. He underscored the government’s efforts to uplift women through schemes like Lakhpati Didi and vowed to further enhance economic prosperity for women across the country.

Addressing the legacy of Babasaheb Ambedkar, Shah accused the Congress party of disrespecting the dalit icon for decades. He criticized Congress for its failure to award Bharat Ratna to Babasaheb and contrasted it with the BJP government’s initiatives to honor Ambedkar’s legacy. Shah also took a jibe at Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, questioning his commitment to eradicating poverty and praising PM Modi’s poverty alleviation efforts.

In conclusion, Amit Shah’s speech in Bhandara highlighted the BJP’s firm stance on reservation policies and its commitment to social justice. He urged the electorate to support Prime Minister Modi for a third term to realize the party’s ambitious plans for inclusive development and prosperity for all segments of society.
