‘Poor growth, corruption would spell UPA`s doom’
Hyderabad: Poor shape of economy and massive corruption in UPA government would result in defeat of the ruling coalition in the next general elections, BJP MP and party`s spokesperson Prakash Javadekar claimed here on Monday.
"In Emergency days in 1975, when inflation and corruption were high, regime change happened. In 1987-89 also the same situation was there and again the regime changed.
"The same is going to happen in 2014, inflation and corruption are high and the government change is imperative," he told reporters here.
Charging that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has failed to steer the economy on the path of progress despite being an economist, he alleged that the indecision and policy paralysis on the part of government resulted in India`s growth getting killed.
"Indian growth was an entrepreneur-led story. It was the success of Indian entrepreneurs in a free environment that took the growth to the level of nine per cent. But with policy paralysis in the government, it came down to 5.3 per cent in last quarter.
"It shows the shape of things to come in future. Under Manmohan Singh, UPA has effectively killed the Indian growth story," Javadekar said.
The BJP is gearing up all over the country to take on the UPA, he said.
On whether the BJP would announce its prime ministerial candidate for 2014 general elections, he replied in affirmative but did not elaborate.
To a query, he said the BJP is united and that it will give a correct direction to the country.
Reiterating the party`s commitment to the separate Telangana state, Javadekar said it will emerge triumphant in the June 12 bypoll to Parkal Assembly seat.
Any party opposed to Telangana cause would not have place in the NDA, he said. PTI SJR GK
