After Congress targeted the Modi government as it completed two years in office today wondering "what was there to celebrate", BJP hit back saying the NDA dispensation had done more than what the main opposition party did when in power and accused the erstwhile UPA government of creating "records in corruption".
After Congress targeted the Modi government as it completed two years in office today wondering “what was there to celebrate”, BJP hit back saying the NDA dispensation had done more than what the main opposition party did when in power and accused the erstwhile UPA government of creating “records in corruption”.
It accused Congress of practising “negative” politics and speaking “untruth” to target the Narendra Modi government and attacked it, saying the opposition party was rejected by people in state after state due to this while people have accepted the saffron party.
“The government began well from where Congress had left… committing massive corruption. Whether it is allocation of 2G spectrum or coal blocks or direct cash transfer to LPG consumers and MNREGA workers.
“For the first time, 50000 villages were provided with broadband facilities. Every panchayat and small township were given Rs 80 lakh and Rs 21 crore. Out government also sanctioned one rank-one pension to ex-servicemen. We did in two years what Congress governments could not do in 60 years,” its national secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
Claiming that over 13 crore people were brought under various welfare measures, he said the country was changing but Congress was unable to see it due its dislike for the Modi government.
“We have made a strong foundation for a long success ahead,” he said.
Congress and BJP have been involved in a war of words over the massive campaign by the ruling party over the second anniversary celebration of the government. The main opposition party wondered “what was there for it to celebrate”.
