We are prepared for elections – Jai Ram Thakur
‘We are prepared for elections’ said Jai Ram Thakur, BJP state president, welcoming the Election Commissions decision to advance the state assembly election by two months. We have always been a votary for holding elections to all the assembly segments at the same time and the election commission has justified our stand, he said.
Thakur added that the timely announcement would help to put a stop to the propaganda unleashed by the congress party by announcing new schools, colleges, job openings as a means of luring the voters at the fag end of the government term. He asked the election commission to oversee any misuse of government or administrative machinery by congress leaders or ministers as the election code had come into effect.
