Presenting a report card of two years of Narendra Modi government, BJP chief Amit Shah Friday credited the party for giving a “decisive” government and said in the remaining three years of its tenure all the promises made in the run up to 2014 Lok Sabha polls will be fulfilled.
At a press conference in New Delhi, Shah talked at length about the government’s initiatives to create employment and give a boost to economy in the last two years.
He also lambasted Congress, alleging “scams, scandals and policy paralysis” ruled the roost during ten years of UPA rule.
Accusing the UPA government of having left behind an “empty treasury and policy paralysis,” Shah said the bureacracy was “dejected” and there was pessimism among people.
Claiming that the Modi government has generated hope in all these sections within two years of coming to power, Shah expressed confidence that the government will take the country to new heights after laying the foundation stone in this period.
“We have given a decisive government to the country. This is a government, which takes decisions. Such a decisive government led by Modi ji has been formed in the country after a long time. Modi government has assumed power after the ten years rule of UPA in which scams and scandals ruled the roost. After two years in government, even our opponents have not been able to level any allegation of corruption on us,” Shah said.
Referring to the first NDA government headed by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, he said that the development journey of the nation that started then seemed to have come to halt during the UPA regimes.
“UPA I and UPA II had brought the situation to such a situation that it appeared that the development journey of the nation has come to a halt,” he said.
Shah said that Modi government worked to bring an all- inclusive development by adopting a balanced approach.
The BJP chief also cited the government’s decision to bring the NEET ordinance that allowed states to have their own medical entrance examinations, as an example of Government’s focus on quick disposal of people’s problems.
