Prodding the ministers in BJP-ruled states to perform, party president Nitin Gadkari on Friday said if they fail to deliver and allow bureaucrats to "take control", there was no reason to oust the Congress from power.
"If you do something different, people get relief, their lives get better then they will believe in you. If you cannot do it then there would be an impression that whosoever may come and go, there is no difference and things remain the same," Gadkari said in a pep-up talk at a meet of Panchayati Raj and Rural Development ministers of the BJP-ruled states.
"Go ahead, make records, do something. Things can't be left to themselves. Officers take control and whatever is happening happens. If you can't do anything then what is the use of Congress' exit and your arrival," he said.
Encouraging his partymen who were running the state governments to take initiative for the development of the people, the BJP president said they should move ahead and work without seeking permission from the central leadership.
"You don't need my permission to do things. Do it in self start automatic mode, if there is an error, I will step in and help," he said.
Speaking further Gadkari said a majority of the country's population lived in the villages, whose development has not been given the priority they deserved due to the wrong economic policies.
I try to take technology to rural parts and try to give employment to people, Gadkari said. He added that rather than look for funds, he was utilising the funds of the local area to generate local socio-economic development.
Gadkari also said he was thinking of producing bio fuels after tying up with a petrol company. He said the fuel would be sold cheaper than other fuel and would be non polluting.
