Because of his efforts only, the region got Special Status under Article 371(J), ESIC medical complex and other several development projects. Mr. Kharge was defeated not because people did not like him, but because of hate and malicious propaganda spread by BJP.

It is the poisonous ideology of RSS and BJP that has destroyed the secular fabrics of the nation. It is the ideology that has created enmity among the communities. Mr. Kharge was not the first to term RSS-BJP ideology as poisonous. Hundreds of scholars, intellectuals, social reformers and secular politicians have said and written a lot terming the RSS-BJP ideology as poisonous to the country. We could continue to repeat Mr. Kharge’s words,” he stated.
