He said that the prime minister was well aware of Chaudhary Charan Singh’s contributions to nation-building. Jayant further emphasised the necessity of integrating farmers and rural areas into the mainstream of development to ensure the country’s growth and progress.

Talking about his grandfather’s unwavering honesty in life, he recalled that Chaudhary Charan Singh used to assert that corruption at the highest levels could hinder progress. “Now-a-days such individuals seek to retain power even while facing imprisonment,” he said.

He said that Rajiv Gandhi accepted that only 15 paisa reaches the grassroots level from the top, but the Modi government has curbed this corruption by directly sending money into the accounts of people. Chaudhary Charan Singh was also a supporter of such acts of honesty and morality.

Jayant Choudhary urged RLD and alliance leaders to dedicate themselves to the success of all NDA candidates. He expressed hope that the alliance would achieve its target of 400 seats by winning all 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh.
