Ahead of UP elections where Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav is hell bent on maligning Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his BJP, Modi took a dig at Congress Jr. Gandhi saying, “If you google his name, then you will find the largest number of jokes on his name”, which is actually a fact. However, the same thing is applicable on Modi too, he is listed as most wanted criminal and there was huge social media war on this issue. Finally, Google had to publish the disclaimer stating this appears with search engine optimization. Political leaders should talk on merits and demerits of each other rather than restoring to such unwanted taunts. Modi did not stop here and went on criticising Akhilesh Yadav’s decision to form alliance with the Congress. The PM was very much humorous while attacking the two but the ground reality is that, the duos are having strong chances of making it to power. Right now, BJP has only one strong opponent and that too these two political parties. BSP too is warlord of UP power game. Nothing is certain but one can predict no future for BJP in the state. I hope one day PM speeches will have more merits to talk about his government and less about slamming opposition. Despite winning with splendid majority our PM is unable to breathe even today without attacking Congress and that is the irony of the time.
Meanwhile, to solace Jat anger against the BJP, Modi invoked Chaudhry Charan Singh, comparing his government with the latter. Modi promised to provide funds to farmers on Charan Singh’s name in every district if the BJP comes to power in the State. From playing communal card to pleasing Jats and promising long pending assurance about building Ram Mandir, BJP is trying anything to everything but still voters of UP are not ready to buy jumlas.
Demonetization, might lead to BJP’s downfall, Congress took on ruling party by calling it an anti-people’s move. On the other hand, even after coming to power for three years, Modiji is still in attacking mode. Till today, he failed to prove his corruption claims against Congress. Now, they are in power for about 32 months and there is no progress on any front. Those who made such money are not gullible like the bhakts to keep them in cash form. It is less than 15 lakh crore currency in circulation and they want people to believe that 12 lakh crores is with Congress men. Setting the tone for the Winter Session of Parliament, Shah claimed that Congress was unhappy with the withdrawal of the high-value currency notes as its “fortune” was reduced to “paper scrap” by PM Modi’s move. Shah also mocked the Rahul Gandhi “going to a bank in a Rs. 4 crore car to exchange Rs. 4,000”, but he forgot to mock PM’s own mother Heeraben Modi visiting bank and for exchanging currency a news which made headlines for two days. Actually that was the PR stunt, as many people died while standing in queue, but she being PM’s mother could withdraw money in no time.
BJP has always alleged that during UPA’s 10-year rule, the Sonia-Manmohan government indulged in one scam every month, be it 2G, CWG, coal allocation, Adarsh Society, aircraft purchase and many others. With such large-scale corruption, Congress leaders accumulated Rs. 12 lakh crore which is equal to the size of three Union budgets. They parked this huge amount of money in their houses, godowns and at their friends’ places thinking that it was safe. But Modi turned it into paper scrap by announcing demonetisation on November 8. This has taken away all the charm from the faces of the Congressmen. Now the question here is, what was BJP doing after coming to power?
When Amit Shah shouts, India knows who are the real thieves…but corrupt BJP possessed 200,000 cr black money which was converted into white money through new telecom company, overnight huge money was deposited in their bank accounts. Still BJP has no guts or honesty to disclose their party funds and its sources. Surprisingly, BJP as party is unaffected, and its leaders are pretending to be clean. Well, they might have fought elections with crores of white money?
Modi ruling India, his party is in power and his government departments can be sent to arrest Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. When Shah knows the location, amount and many things about Congress, what is stopping him to act against them? Why only verbal accusations? Modiji expanding his lungs, screamed from roof top against Sonia Gandhi’s son in-law and his corruption, but so far no action has been taken against him. BJP and its leaders failed to act or prove their claims against Gandhi family. Even after coming to power the blame game continued but no action has been taken, because those are false allegations.
I am not a Congress supporter but, we cannot ignore that the UPA has achieved more than what Modi could. A 9.5 per cent average growth rate compared to Modi’s truncated 7 per cent no job growth during BJP raj, export and manufacturing has fallen drastically. Prices of essentials commodities have gone up, so is farmer’s death. There is so much unrest and hahakar among common man. By the way look around, all the technology, scientific achievements like Nuclear submarine, ISRO’s successful journey to Mars; Cryogenic Engine, MGNREGA, 123 Nuclear Agreement… Cellular Technology spread is UPA’s achievement. Today, India is the 5th largest economy, 6th Nuclear Power, Third Space Power, 2nd largest Defence Force. If Modi was anywhere in the picture, he opposed all the major agreements including 123 Nuclear Agreement, MNREGA. All the allegations of corruption against Congress, in spite of best attempts by Modi, have been discarded by the court including Coal scandal, National Herald, 2G scam. Everyday a new corruption charge is surfacing against BJP either in MP or Rajasthan. BJP is the biggest spender in the elections which spent three times than Congress in Lok Sabha. Would it explain the source of that money? Is their stash been converted into new currency or deposited in banks before demonetization?
Why BJP does not understand that the voters are not in a mood to buy their allegations and fake assurances, they want some action to be taken. Black money issue still remains unsolved and back to where it was. How long this party is going to fool people? Anyway, if such attacks and loose talks continue, in coming future BJP is going to lose its battle for another ten long years.
