BJP flays central government over scams and wrongful economic policies
New Delhi, Apr 3 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday flayed the central government for living under the shadow of scams and wrongful economic policies.
Speaking to mediapersons here, BJP president Nitin Gadkari blamed the central government for its incapability to channelise investments in the right direction, which has led to the slow growth of the Indian economy.
"The state in the world is such that the American economy is constantly going down and the situation in European countries is not great and considering the state of affairs, our country had an opportunity to prosper and tread on the path of development, but they lost that chance. This is because of rampant corruption in the country. Not only have we lost their chance, but we are known for all the wrong reasons around the world," he said.
In addition, Gadkari said that the Delhi Government also bit the dust over several irregularities in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
"Be it the 2G spectrum, Commonwealth Games and there are several scams coming to the fore every other day. The important issues in connection with national security, they have also come up in recent times inside the Parliament as well as outside. So, this is a warning bell for the country's security. The central government is embroiled in some or the other controversy. During the Commonwealth Games, the allegations against the Delhi government have almost been proved," he said.
Gadkari added that the ruling Congress party has been constantly targeting his party, despite the Delhi Lokayuta recommending to the President of India to take action against Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit for misrepresenting facts during the 2008 Assembly elections.
"The Delhi Lokayukta had recently taken a decision regarding a Delhi chief minister. The Congress was constantly after our party after a report by the Karnataka Lokayukta, which had stated that there must be investigations regarding the involvement of Yeddyurappa in the illegal mining scam. But later on, the charges were taken back and it was proved in the High Court that all those were false allegations," he said.
Gadkari also asserted that the wrong economic policies adopted by the central government have resulted in increased rate of inflation.
"The wrong economic policies and corruption adopted by the central government has resulted in price rise and increase in the rate of inflation. The situation is such that the prices of petrol and diesel are increasing after every 15-20 days. It has become very difficult for the common man to survive like this. Due to service tax in every sector, prices have skyrocketed. So, the rate of inflation is constantly rising," he said. (ANI)
