New Delhi: Lauding the Narendra Modi-led NDA government for making "historic" and "extraordinary" achievements in just six months, BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday said its government has not just made the life of the common man easier but also laid the foundation of a strong India.
Shah also attacked Congress accusing it of making baseless allegations in its bid to tarnish the government's image and said a party that had ruled the country for 60 years and "throttled democracy" and "pushed the people towards poverty has no right to question" the NDA rule on its achievements in a short span of time.
Complimenting the government on completion of six-months in office, Shah claimed it has taken many steps to fulfil the promises made ahead of polls.
"The NDA government has made historic achievements in a short period of six months...Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his team has made extra-ordinary achievements. Due to steps taken by the government, the lives of common man has not only just become easy but a foundation of a strong India has been laid," Shah said in a statement.
The BJP chief listed a host of achievements of Modi regime including steps to control price rise and inflation, check corruption, generate employment opportunities and steps taken to bring back black money besides working as "Team India" for taking the nation forward.
He also listed the steps for a clean India, improve infrastructure, focus on rural hinterland and improving life of people there, besides steps taken in the interest of youth, women and the elderly.
Hitting out at Congress, Shah charged "the party which despite ruling the nation for 60 years deprived the country from development, forced the people to live in penury, put shackles of unemployment in the hands of youth, tried to strangulate democracy, the same party is now seeking an account of six months of rule."
He said "an exploitative, repressive and undemocratic party has no right to ask about the account of six months rule of BJP government."
