Terming the attacks on churches a “matter of concern”, Congress MP Rajeev Shukla today alleged that people are being served with “vandalisation, fightings, and rioting” instead of “achhe din” as promised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during campaigns in run up to 2014 general elections.

“You (the BJP) had asked for votes in the name of development and promised that “achche din” (good days) will come. There will be development and betterment for all citizens,” Shukla said on the sidelines of UP Cricket Association Working Committee meeting here.

“But what happened – vandalisation, fightings, rioting… this is not what the people had voted you (BJP) for,” he said.

Targeting the BJP-led Central government, Shukla said, “Attacks on churches are a matter of concern. Nobody is happy knowing religious places are being attacked or comments against the religious places are being made. No community is happy.”

Commenting on the Land Bill, the former minister in the UPA government said land is “lifeline” for the farmers and there should be “no compromise” with their welfare.

Entire opposition is united against the Bill and nothing should be done while ignoring the rights of the farmers, he said.
