Manmohan Singh to Modi: Congress-led UPA dealt with the corrupt strictly, what BJP has done?

Targeting the Prime Minister in his home state, Singh said that PM Modi has betrayed the business community with the GST and claimed that the rollout of the indirect tax regime has completely dismantled the business not just in the state, but across the nation

Manmohan Singh lashes out at Modi government (Source: ANI)

Former Prime Minister and senior Congress leader Dr Manmohan Singh, on Thursday, launched a fresh attack on Narendra Modi-led NDA government, claiming the Centre has failed terribly on various fronts. An economist himself, Manmohan Singh, while speaking at a media gathering in Rajkot, Gujarat, targeted economic reforms undertaken by Modi government. After terming demonetisation as an ‘organised loot’ a few days ago, Singh slammed the noteban once again, calling it a “disastrous” decision. He said that the fundamental aim of the scheme has failed as corruption is still prevalent. Targeting the Prime Minister in his home state, Singh said that PM Modi has betrayed the business community with GST and claimed that the rollout of the indirect tax regime has completely dismantled the business not just in the state, but across the nation. Scrapping the notion that Modi government is cracking down on Black Money and corruption, he said, “Whoever faced corruption allegations during UPA was dealt with strictly, but the same cannot be said about BJP, they have not acted on corruption in their rule.”

Singh also pointed out there is widespread unemployment in Gujarat, saying Modi hasn’t done anything to develop Gujarat. Highlighting the Narmada issue, he said, “Modiji says he took up Narmada issue with me but I don’t remember him talking to me about this issue, though whenever he wanted to meet me I never refused, was always ready as being PM it was my responsibility to meet all CMs.” He further expressed his disappointment with Modi’s foreign policy saying, “Our national security has been hurt by the inconsistent foreign policies of this Government, some steps taken by Modi government were not in the best interest of the country.” During his speech, he also hailed India’s first woman Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, saying the nationalisation of banks done by her helped the country do better on the economic front.

It must be noted that the election campaign for the first phase of the Gujarat elections has reached its last leg and the word war between the two rival parties, BJP and the Congress have intensified. The state will go to polls in two phases — on December 9 and 14.

          Ah here they come again supporting a wolf under a sheep skin. ManMo of course acted dumb during his regime and is still a puppet in madam and raga’s hands. But he’s a way better economist than modi. There’s no comparison in that matter anyway. If you want to know the financial reforms introduced by ManMo you have to turn the pages of history. Making a common man and a humble small business man getting ripped off his money in the name of eradicating black money is not a financial reform. Patience? Wait for ten years? Don’t you sheep cannot realise what’s happening? They are linking Aadhar to every single thing as a planned step to invade people’s privacy and make them slaves. Talking about puppet. Isn’t Modi a puppet in the hands of RSS and Sangh Parivaar? There are scams actively running in Modi’s rule as well. They’ll only surface as time goes.

                Dear Sir, At the behest and pressure organized follow up of the influentials, bad lendings were done during the ten year rule.The magnitude is known only to the then sanctioning authorities. The fruits of those decisions had been enjoyed .Now they should come out to say where the money lent has gone, in the interest of the country no matter they are not in the Government?

                        Dr Singh the leader of a corrupt party and a corrupt leader himself shouldn’t ask this. He never took action on his own. If not for media and alert opposition, he would have allowed highest level of corruption to continue.

                          Simply clarify Mr Manmohanji then whether you were a dependent PM or Independent PM. Still you are talking like parrot of Mr Rahul, why so much fear in you, is there any intrinsic act haunting you.? Please God sake don’t compare yoynaction on corruption and present BJP probing. Mr PV your guru told your Congress colleagues not to resort corrupt practices as the law will take its own course. In UPA regime you have only ‘0’ knowledge compare to your colleagues who were well aware of the same as they themselves involved. You atleast dare to question you people why they mislead you, not BJP. Please continue your silence mode better for your health.”Srirama”

                                    1. In the context of what former PM Mr. Man Mohan Singh said in Gujarat, I say that he has a right to measure performance of the UPA government and say that it was better than that of government led by Mr. Narendra Modi. But he should be patient enough to measure it say after ten years which is duration of UPA govt. of Mr. Man Mohan Singh. 2. Why is Mr. Singh in such a hurry to undermine performance of NDA government which has completed less than four years in office? Is Mr. Singh ready to accept that UPA government did nothing to control generation of black money? Also let us not forget that scams and controversies have marred economic performance of ten years of UPA rule. 3. Even though during UPA rule our economy achieved impressive rate of GDP growth, creation of new jobs was not commensurate with GDP growth and in fact it was unsatisfactory. 3. It will be okay to do an unbiased and critical study of performance of UPA government and make a comparison with that of NDA in 2024.

                                      One of the reasons why current govt. is struggling with economic revival is the legacy they received in 2014. The NPA mess and over capacity, that is concerning the whole country and private investments, is a creation of UPA. Every economist you talk to, who is not concerned with politics, they will say this. I have heard it many times in last 3 years. Of course, this government is not perfect. But economy works in continuity. One government's performance depends a lot on previous governments's performance and work. UPA's success had a lot to do with Yeswant Sinha's work.
