At the BJP National Executive meet in Uttar Pradesh’s Allahabad, party president Amit Shah praised the Narendra Modi government for its “decisive leadership”, while taking pot shots at Congress and Samajwadi Party. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given decisive leadership to NDA government in the last two years,” he said
Shah slammed the Akhilesh Yadav-led SP government in the state for “deteriorating law and order”. “Atmosphere of violence is prevailing in UP,” he said citing the recent Mathura and Kairana incidents. “Lack of development and governance in UP is a matter of serious concern,” he added.
Amit Shah also hit out at Congress and accused it of playing the role of an obstructionist in India’s development. “Congress is getting increasingly weakened because of its repeated obstructions in the path of development,” he said.
On the same lines, BJP’s Ravi Shankar Prasad also aggressively targeted Congress & SP. “Governance in UP is on a decline. Violence in Mathura & exodus of Hindu from Kairana shows the poor law & order in UP. We will have to work harder in UP to get the state rid of poor governance in UP,” Prasad said.
Highlighting the Modi government’s achievements in two years, he said, “Our government has brought about decision making and eliminated policy paralysis. Since Modi government came to power, India’s growth rate has increased from 5.4% to 7.6%.”
“Two years of Modi government have been of “No corruption government”. However, 10 years of Congress were full of corruption. Many Congress leaders are now leaving the party,” he said.
This is the first time since its establishment three decades ago, the BJP has chosen the city for holding its national executive.
The two-day BJP National Executive meet in Allahabad is being seen as crucial, not only because it comes within days of the Narendra Modi government completing two years in office, but also for the fact that it will set tone for BJP’s plans for UP elections 2017. The meeting is being attended by PM Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah, among other prominent leaders.
