JAMMU, July 4; Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State president, Ravinder Raina said that the party stands for justice to all and promoting social equality in the country.
Addressing one day State Working Committee meeting of BJP Anusuchiti Jaati Morcha at party headquarter, Trikuta Nagar, Jammu,
he said that Narendra Modi Government during five years of first term, initiated a number of steps and launched welfare schemes for the socio-economic upliftment of the Scheduled Castes across the country. “Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas” was the sole objective of the Government at the Centre, which ensured taking altogether in matters of development and welfare. The Congress and other parties, which used to mislead the SCs and treated them as vote bank, failed in their designs in 2019 general election as the people of this community shifted their loyalty towards BJP after realizing that their welfare was only possible if Narendra Modi Government was repeated at the Centre, he added.
