The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday rolled out ‘Parivartan Yatra’ from tribal-dominated Dantewada in poll-bound Chhattisgarh. Assembly polls in the state are slated for later this year.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah was scheduled to launch the ‘Yatra’ but his visit was cancelled at the last moment due to some urgent reason, a party leader said.

In the absence of Shah, BJP’s Chhattisgarh in-charge Om Mathur flagged off the ‘Yatra’ after conducting rituals at the famous Maa Danteshwari temple in Dantewada town.

BJP’s Parivartan Yatra in Poll-bound Chhattisgarh

The Saffron Party has planned two ‘Parivartan Yatras’ in poll-bound Chhattisgarh. BJP chief JP Nadda will flag off the second Yatra from Jashpur on September 15.

The two ‘Yatras’ will see 84 public meetings, 85 “Swagat Sabhas” (welcome gatherings) and seven road shows.

The ‘Yatras’ will culminate in Bilaspur on the same day after covering a distance of 2,989 km across 87 out of the total 90 assembly constituencies.

Senior party leaders including Mathur and Chhattisgarh BJP chief Arun Sao addressed a public rally at the High School ground in Dantewada before flagging off the Yatra.

Addressing the rally, former chief minister Raman Singh hit out at the Congress government in Chhattisgarh alleging corruption over the last five years.

“The Bhupesh Baghel government has done nothing except corruption in the last five years. We are not saying this but the Enforcement Directorate’s investigation has revealed this. This government has committed scams in rice, coal, liquor, DMF, Gauthan etc.” Singh said.

He further said the Parivartan Yatra is aimed at uprooting the “corrupt and incompetent” Congress government and asserted that BJP would come back to power once again in the upcoming assembly polls.
