The Modi government has put an “effective control on middlemen and power brokers” and has “stopped” leakage (of money) to them, Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said today.
“The government has eliminated the role of around 80 per cent middlemen. It has resulted in a system where each and every penny of money sent by the government is being spent on the welfare of farmers, poor and weaker section of society,” the MoS for Minority Affairs told a press conference here.
He said the government has established a “corruption-free and development-oriented system”.
“Congress leaders are unable to see the good governance because they are in a habit of living in corruption. Congress is doing ‘Bhangda of Brastachar’ wearing ‘Ghotale ka Ghungru’,” the minister said.
“The two years of the Modi government is full of confidence. Congress’ rule was of corruption but we talk of connection – of LPG, of electricity, of broadband, and of road,” he said.
He also said the government has taken a tough stand on the issue of terrorism and terrorism-related incidents have “reduced by around 80 per cent” in the country.
“Terrorist forces have been isolated in the country,” he claimed.
He also claimed the participation of minority communities in “jobs has increased” under in the Modi government.
When asked whether the controversial statements of certain leaders of the party have impacted BJP’s image in two years, he said “the party never justified those statements”.
“We are a democratic party but whatever the statements were made on different occasions were never justified by the party,” he said.
