We love our poor workers who have come here today to participate in this mega program and to renew their pledge to strengthen the party on all fronts. Poor people are our strengthen as we will never backstab them like others have done in the past,” the BJP leader said as the crowd responded with the pro-Er Aijaz Slogan that include ‘Hamara leader, Er Aijaz, Aijaz sahib Kadam Bhadaw, Hum tumharay saath hai.”
