The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday alleged that the Congress Party should first introspect the statements of senior leaders before tweeting or arranging for press conferences and raising allegations against the Centre.
Highlighting the developmental work undertaken under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the progress of the nation , BJP leader Nalin Kohli said: “Congress should introspect about what their senior leaders like H R Bharadwaj is saying In any case, within the country a lot of work is happening. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working on the economy, even the industry is going up. There are job opportunities, inflation is down. Whether its schemes like ‘Beti Padhao Beti Bachao’, or social security schemes, or insurance schemes, or financial inclusion, work is being done and they should be happy if Indians are benefitting.”
“If they have something substantial to raise, they have appropriate forums. It would be a misconception to believe that only press conferences with only allegations or tweets cannot be a solution, cannot be an alternative to working for the welfare of the people,” Nalin Kohli added.
Earlier in the day, Congress leader Digvijay Singh had tweeted saying the ‘Digital India’ initiative launched under Prime Minister Narendra Modi was originally a United Progressive Alliance (UPA) scheme – the National e-Governance Plan – and the NDA Government has only renamed it.
