‘Congress made me what I am today, but need to introspect why leaders leaving’: Ravneet Singh Bittu | Chandigarh News


Ludhiana MP Ravneet Singh Bittu Tuesay expressed gratitude to the Congress for making him what he is today, but added that the “past is past” and now “let’s see the future”. The three-time MP, who recently joined the BJP after quitting the grand old party said Congress must introspect why its leaders were deserting it.

“It was the Congress that picked me for Lok Sabha polls from from Anandpur Sahib in 2009. It later made me an MP from Ludhiana in 2014 and 2019. Today I am grateful to the Congress for making me ‘Ravneet Bittu’. But past is past. Let’s look at the future,” said Bittu who will contest the Lok Sabha elections from the constituency on a BJP ticket.

The Congress, he said, “is being deserted by the best of its leaders and workers” and the “grand old party needs to introspect why this is happening”. He said the Congress is faced with confusion, chaos and contradictions.

“Punjab is a border state that is always under threat from anti-national forces. We need to take Punjab towards peace, progress and happiness while tackling anti-nationals. We have lost so many lives fighting against these forces. Only the BJP can take the nationalist agenda forward under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said, adding the same agenda has to be carried out in Punjab so that our state prospers. “Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah are concerned about Punjab and Punjabis,” he added.

Bittu arrived in Ludhiana by train from Delhi after joining the BJP on March 26 and was accorded a rousing welcome at the station. He went to Durga Mata Mandir located at Jagraon bridge to pay obeisance and later held a road show with his supporters raining slogans of Jai Shri Ram.

Festive offer

Commenting on the development of Ludhiana, Bittu said a number of projects were brought to the LS constituency during his last term.
“This time, if the voters give me a hat-trick chance, I will reshape Ludhiana with the BJP at the Centre. Be it industrialists, traders, shopkeepers, farmers, farm labourers or any other, I will take them to the Union government for their redressal,” he added.

Bittu admitted that there may have been some shortcomings on his part “as I am also a human being and to commit mistakes is human nature but I have also learnt from my shortcomings”. He said that he wants to act as a bridge between the union government and the voters of Ludhiana.

Bittu said had the Ferozepur visit of the Prime Minister in January 2022 not “disrupted by the anti-national forces”, Punjab would have seen significant development projects.

“My grandfather, the late Beant Singh, also sacrificed his life for the peace of Punjab while fighting against terrorism. Now, terrorism has taken a new shape in the state. Punjab has to come out of this for multi-dimensional development that is only possible if the BJP is voted to power again,” he added.

Earlier, BJP’s district unit chief Rajneesh Dhiman welcomed Bittu at the station.
