A Congress leader said the Naxalites are revolutionising, Naxalism is a canker that is hampering the development of Chhattisgarh. We believe that the whole development of the poor is a revolution. I want to tell Rahul Gandhi that you have to change the interpretation of your revolution: Amit Shah

Chhattisgarh, which was known to be one of the sickest states of the country, is now moving forward and competing with other states in India: Amit Shah

Now, we will transform the developed Chhattisgarh into a new Chhattisgarh, says Shah

"At the time of Congress government, Chhattisgarh was granted only 48 thousand crore rupees under the 13th Finance Commission, but Modi government has  committed Rs 1,37,717 crore for the development of Chhattisgarh under the 14th Finance Commission," the BJP chief said

The Congress party is an expert in lying, their work is to utter lies again and again: Amit Shah

"I am proud of Raman Singh ji that he started such a good and corruption free scheme of distributing rice across the country. Now other states are also stepping into his shoes," says Shah

The Congress has always opposed to the development of Chhattisgarh, it was the government of Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji who had created this state, says Amit Shah
