Durg (Chhattisgarh) [India], October 2 (ANI): Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Monday rode a motorcycle as part of the Congress party's 'Bharosa Yatra' in Patan in Durg district to publicise the work done by his government during the last five years.
Similar day-long Bharosa Yatras (march of trust) are being taken out in all 90 Assembly constituencies of the poll-bound state by the Congress party marking Gandhi Jayanti.
Hundreds of bikers along with Baghel rode bikes for 40 kilometres through the cities and villages raising slogans and flashing Congress flags. During the yatra, Baghel also unveiled statues of great men in many villages.
On the other hand, BJP concluded its 'Parivartan Yatra' (March of Change) on Saturday in Bilaspur where PM Modi addressed a gathering.
While on Sunday Baghel questioned PM Modi following promises made by him to farmers during his rally in Bilaspur and said, "PM Modi is continuously coming(here)... He said that they have given Rs 1 lakh crore for paddy... I would like to say to the PM that in 2014 there was a double-engine government, and at that time you said you would buy 10 quintal paddy... But in the next three years, there was a consistent decrease in paddy procurement.""And now you are saying that you will buy each grain of paddy... I would like to say to PM that if you want to buy each grain of paddy, then before coming here again on October 3rd give an order that the Central Government will buy each grain of paddy," he added.
