Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday addressed the voters of West Delhi Lok Sabha seat and asked to choose BJP to solve the pollution issue, which could eventually lead to an increased life of up to 10 years. 

Addressing a poll meeting in favour of BJP candidate Kamaljeet Sehrawat, Gadkari said, “Choose the lotus symbol and the BJP. If you want to see India becoming a 'vishwa guru', the world's third-largest economy and want Delhi to be free from water pollution, noise pollution and air pollution, you should choose BJP. If these three things happen, the life span of Delhiites will increase by 10 years."

Highlighting the pollution crisis in Delhi, the union minister said, “Even if I stay in Delhi for three days, I develop infection. There are problems in Delhi -- traffic jams, pollution and lack of cleanliness. Nobody thought about addressing these issues in 60 years but only our government thought about Delhi."

Emphasising the need for measures to tackle pollution, Gadkari said that if the air pollution issue is addressed, the people's medical bills will see a reduction.

'What Congress could not do in 60 years, BJP did in 10 years'

He also asserted that the BJP government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi did the work in 10 years, what the Congress government could not do in 60 years. He said, “This election, in its truest sense, is for deciding the future of the country. I can tell you that what the Congress could not do in 60 years, we did it in 10 years under Modiji. We have come to you with our report card." 

Gadkari stated that there is no scarcity of money in India but of honest leaders emphasising a need for able leadership. He said, “If you want to change the country and you want to make India 'vishwaguru' and you want a five-trillion dollar economy and world-class infrastructure and want the country free from poverty, it needs an able leadership.”

Giving details about his work in the last ten years, Gadkari revealed that he has accomplished Rs. 50 lakh crore worth of projects.

At another poll meeting in Moti Nagar in support of BJP candidate from New Delhi seat Bansuri Swaraj, the former BJP president asserted that India is changing because people gave opportunity to an honest leadership. He said that 10 years of Modi was just a trailer

"Whatever you have seen in the last 10 years was just the trailer, the film is still left. We have the potential but the power has to be in the hand of the right party," he added.
