    Odisha being run by remote-control, says Smriti Irani

    Addressing a public rally in Balasore, Union Minister Smriti Irani said, "This is a misfortune of the state which has natural resources, which gave morals and culture to the world, today that state government is being run by remote control. I have come here to urge the people to vote for BJP for the welfare and upliftment of Odisha... This region has no new provisions for the employment of the youth, neither is there any provision to promote industry.

    Amit Shah slams Rahul Gandhi for making false things as election issues

     

    Amit Shah on Agniveer scheme | "The politics of this country has changed after Rahul Gandhi came into politics. Earlier, political parties used to twist actual issues in front of the people, but they never made falsehood an issue. Rahul Gandhi has started a new tradition that only a false thing should be made an issue. The best example of this is the Agniveer scheme... A misconception is being spread all over the country that after 4 years, 75% Agniveers will be left future-less and their life will be ruined... The scheme is that if 100 people become Agniveer, 25% of them would be permanently posted in the Army. For the remaining 75%, BJP rules states have made a 10-20% reservation in their state police force. 10% reservation has been given in the central government's paramilitary force also. Other than the reservation, they will get a lot of relaxation in the selection process, like age, examination, and they also do not have to go through the physical tests. After this, there might hardly be any Agniveer who might not get a job... A lot of security companies have also prioritised Agniveers... He will receive a hefty salary for 4 years and after that, he will get a permanent job with gratuity... Rahul Gandhi is saying absolute lies for the advantage of his party and misguiding the people..."
