New Delhi: Kicking off his party’s campaign for the assembly elections in Jharkhand, BJP chief Amit Shah accused the Congress of stalling Ayodhya judgement and delaying a solution for the Kashmir problem for seven decades because of vote-bank politics.

“Everyone wants construction of a Ram temple. We also wanted a solution to this dispute within the framework of the Constitution. Supreme Court has now cleared the way for the construction of a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya,” Shah said at election rallies in Manika and Lohardagga.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to solve all problems which have been pending for a long time in the country. He added the Centre has framed a defence policy that has protected the borders and freed the country of terrorism.

Accusing the Congress of not protecting the interests of tribals during its rule, Shah recalled that it was Atal Bihari Vajpayee government which had created a separate ministry for tribals.

The BJP chief said the Modi government set up a museum in the memory of tribal leaders who fought valiantly for the country's freedom.

He also sought to remind the electorate that it was a BJP government which created a separate state of Jharkhand .

Shah lauded the Raghubar Das government for “freeing” the state of the Naxal menace.

He also praised the Das government for undertaking development works and giving the state a stable government.

Appealing to voters to ensure formation of a BJP government with full majority in the state, Shah accused the Congress-JMM combine of indulging in corruption and “hoodwinking” the tribals the poor and the backward sections.
