[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n a farce situation in India, BJP Chief Amit Shah purported that Congress leaders had accumulated Rs. 12 lakh crore during the UPA rule through “corrupt” means, which he said was turned into “paper scrap” overnight by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move. Even after coming to power for more than two and half years, the party is still in attacking mode. Till today, they failed to prove a single corruption charge against Congress or its leaders. There is no progress in any case or allegation. However, those who made such money are not gullible like the ‘bhakts’ to keep them in a cash form. There are less than Rs. 15 lakh crore currency of 500 and 1000 denomination in circulation and they want people to believe that Rs. 12 lakh crores is with Congress men. Shah also mocked that the Rahul Gandhi “going to a bank in a Rs. 4 crore car to exchange Rs. 4,000”, but he forgot to comment on PM’s honourable mother Heeraben Modi to exchange her notes which hit the headlines for two consecutive days. Actually, that was a PR stunt created by BJP and PM to gain sympathy over the issue. In a queue in the bank, where people are dying, PM’s mother gets instant access and she exchanged the 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, (PM) 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 BJP was doing since they came to power?
Amit Shah shouts, India knows who the real thieves are? Still, BJP has no guts or honesty to disclose their party funds and its sources. Surprisingly BJP, as a party is unaffected, and its leaders are pretending to be clean. Well, they might have fought elections with crores of white money? Let Shah’s statement be assumed as true that Congress leaders stashed Rs. 12 lakh crore, and PM Modi has turned them into scrap. If he knows and very much sure about Congress scam money then should have passed the information to Income Tax Department or CBI as these agencies are working under your government. Why giving only ‘jumlas’?
He can send these agencies to arrest Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. When Shah knows the location, amount then what is stopping him against them? Why only verbal accusations? Modiji was screaming against Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law’s corruption, however, no action has been taken against him. BJP and its leaders failed to prove their claims against Gandhi family. Should we assume that whatever allegations BJP has made on Congress were false?
I’m not a Congress supporter, nevertheless, we cannot ignore that the UPA has achieved more than Modi could. A 9.5% average ‘growth rate’ as compared to Modi’s truncated 7%. No new job generation during BJP government, Export, Manufacturing is down to negative territory, prices of essential commodity are inclining day by day and so the farmer’s suicide. There is so much unrest and hahakar among the common man.
By the way, all the technology, scientific achievements like Nuclear submarine, ISRO’s successful journey to Mars; Cryogenic Engine, MGNREGA, 123 Nuclear Agre-ement… Cellular Tech-nology spread is UPA’s achievement. Today India is the 5th largest economy, 6th Nuclear Power, third Space Power, 2nd largest Defense Force, IBlue water Navy. If Modi was anywhere in the picture, he opposed all the major agreements including 123 Nuclear Agreement, MGNREGA. All the allegations of corruption against Congress, in spite of best attempts by Modi, has been discarded by the court including Coal scandal, National Herald, 2G scam. As per reports BJP spent three times more than Congress in Lok Sabha polls. Would it explain the source of that money? Is their a stash being converted into new currency or deposited in banks before demonetization announcement?
BJP should understand that the voters are not in a mood to buy their allegations and fake assurances. They want action to be taken against people whom they alleged. Black money issue still remains unsolved and back to where it was. How long this party is going to fool people? Anyways, if such attacks and loose talks continue, in future BJP is going to lose its battle for another ten long years. Mind it!
