New Delhi: Congress leader Shashi Tharoor Friday said the BJP`s plan to "address economic concerns" was a "vague" statement.

"The BJP government is claiming it would address the economic concerns... but it is a vague statement. The party`s stand on reforms in the infrastructure sector is equally vague," Tharoor told media persons here.

He said the Bharatiya Janata Party`s proposal for "e-auction" was a welcome step, but the same could have been implemented in BJP-ruled Gujarat where "land has been given cheap to the corporates".
On the BJP`s plan to attract investment, he said the party earlier opposed FDI when it was in the opposition.
He claimed the BJP`s plan to have a "people-oriented system" was a nod to the policy followed by the Congress.
