New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday dismissed as propaganda
the UPA government`s report card and said the Centre has
failed to check prices, is confused on how to fight Maoists,
has corrupt and irresponsible ministers and lacks an
independent foreign policy.
"I think it is important for a government to be judged by
the people rather than judge itself. What has been released
today is propaganda, not a reality," Leader of Opposition in
Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley said.
The senior BJP leader alleged that the UPA regime had
failed on all fronts.
"The reality is that prices have remained unchecked, there
is confusion on how to fight Maoists, corruption of some
ministers is going unchecked, there is irresponsible
ministerial behaviour, and there is absence of pursuit of an
independent foreign policy," Jaitley said.
The senior BJP leader labelled the UPA regime as an
"incoherent and non-performing government".
Cong slams BJP
Congress today attacked BJP for ridiculing UPA government`s report card as "propaganda",
saying the main opposition party is trying to mislead
"They (BJP) are trying to mislead the nation. What
else can you expect from BJP, whose national president
(Bangaru Luxman) was caught on camera accepting cash during
NDA`s rule," party spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed told reporters.
Ahmed said "UPA-II is an extension of UPA-I.
And if we got 206 seats in the second term from 142 of UPA-I,
is it not a clear sign of public acceptance of our policies."
He expressed confidence that the country will greatly
benefit from suggestions of the re-constituted National
Advisory Council headed by Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
He said members for NAC have been appointed from
various fields and will help consoldiate UPA`s programmes that
aim at inclusive growth and betterment of `Aam Admi`.
