Nagaon: BJP President Nitin Gadkari today held UPA's policies responsible for various problems plaguing the country and exuded confidence that his party would return to power in 2014.

"Whenever Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh are in power, prices and inflation rise, infiltration from Bangladesh increases and unemployment rises. The vote bank policies of the UPA government has put the nation in danger", Gadkari told a rally here.

"The people are frustrated by the policies of the Congress-led UPA government and BJP holds a bright chance to form an alternative government in the next elections", he said.

"We vow to create an India free of illegal foreigners and hunger. Farmers will not commit suicide due to poverty and jobs will be created for the youth", he said.

Dismissing the charge that his party is anti-Muslim, Gadkari asked, "If BJP were against the Muslims of India, how could Atal Behari Vajpayee make Dr APJ Abdul Kalam President of the country?"

Turning to the Congress government in Assam, Gadkari alleged that the ministry was corrupt and had sacrificed the interests of the local people in the past ten years.

It had also failed to address the major problems of floods, infiltration and unemployment.

He appealed to the people to ensure victory for BJP in the next-year assembly poll "to stop infiltration, curb price rise and to save Assam."

"Strengthen us and we will change Assam to save its future. Our government will bring development and industries to create jobs for the youth", he said.

Citing the example of Gujarat government interconnecting rivers there to solve water shortage, Gadkari wondered why Assam government could not think on those lines for solving the flood problem.
