I have appealed to the religious leaders to speak out against money culture during religious gatherings. There is a need to educate the people about this menace.Money culture and clan politics is not healthy for a democracy.”

The aim of the party is to serve the people.We don’t go into election mode just because elections are around the corner and the aim to serve the people will always be the motto of the BJP.
