Claiming that there is “widespread resentment” in the country, Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday said the Union government is not even remotely concerned with the woes of the common man, who is burdened with taxes and rising inflation.

Addressing a conclave of Bharatiya Kamgar Sena (BKS) on Wednesday he said that those who look up to the government with hope are now finding danger lurking at every corner.

“The situation in the country is grim and there is widespread resentment. Jawans are working hard to guard the borders and farmers are toiling hard in the fields,” he said.

“The government has got nothing to do with the hard earned money deposited in banks by people. People like (Vijay) Mallya take that money and flee the country,” he added.

“The hard earned money of the people is going into payment of taxes. Those who had been elected with high hopes are now imposing taxes. Tax waiver is given on issues that are not required. Essential items are being taxed. What is the government policy ?” Thackeray asked.

He said that petrol and diesel is costly now…next will be vegetable price rise, food grains will be costly.

“How should people survive in this inflation ?” he asked.

“In Great Britain, upon learning that closure of three major industries would lead to unemployment of 40,000 workers, Prime Minister David Cameron who was holidaying abroad with his family came rushing back,” Thackeray said.

“Will this happen in our country? At one end the British Prime Minister comes back. Our Prime Minister goes out,” he said without naming Narendra Modi.

Commenting on the slogan chanting row, Thackeray said, “… those who refuse to say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ have no right to stay in the country. Then what are you waiting for? Catch them by the scruff of their collar and throw them to Bangladesh and Pakistan”.

On the leaked report of Pakistan’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT), the Sena chief took a jibe at the Centre and said “those who planned terror attack in Pathankot airbase have been invited to investigate it.”

      यह भारतवासियों का दुर्भाग्य है कि जिस किसी पार्टी को सरकार बनाने का मौका दिया जाता है वह उद्योगपतियों द्वारा खरीद ली जाती हैं। अब यही उद्योगपति सरकार की आर्थिक नीतियों का निर्धारण कर रहे हैं और भारतीय जनता पार्टी की लोकप्रियता दिन -प्रतिदिन कम होती जा रही है। क्या प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी किसी भी राज्य में जाकर वर्तमान सरकार की आर्थिक नीतियों का बखान करके भारतीय जनता पार्टी को चुनाव में विजयी बना सकते हैं ? कभी नहीं। स्माल सेविंग्स पर ब्याज दर घटाकर प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी ने यह बता दिया है कि आने वाला समय में साधारण नागरिकों का कोई महत्व भारतीय जनता पार्टी की सरकार में नहीं होगा। वित्तमंत्री जो ग्रोथ रेट जरूरी समझते हैं उनको साधारण नागरिक नज़र ही नहीं आते। जितनी भी नई योजनाएं प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी प्रस्तुत करते हैं उनमें ऋण या लोन लेना जरूरी होता है। क्या लोगों को ऋण देने से लोगों का भला हो जाएगा ? अब लोन तो कोई भी ले सकता है इसमें प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी की सरकार ने क्या नया कर दिया ? क्या सरकार जीरो प्रतिशत ब्याज पर लोगों को लोन दे रही है ? क्या साधारण नागरिकों की रोजाना की जिंदगी में प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी की सरकार में कुछ असर पड़ा है ? इसका सीधा सा जवाब है महंगाई बढ़ी है , बचत योजनाओं में ब्याज कम हुआ है, सबकुछ बाज़ार के हवाले कर दिया गया है और ऐसा कुछ नहीं हुआ जिससे साधारण नागरिकों की जिंदगी आसान हुई हो। आने वाले समय में शायद ही किसी बड़े राज्य में भारतीय जनता पार्टी की सरकार बने क्योंकि सबकुछ बाजार के हवाले है और जो वोट देते हैं उन्हें बाज़ार बिल्कुल नापसंद है। इस भारतीय जनता पार्टी सरकार के लिए सबसे बेहतरीन वाक्य है , "केवल लोन देने को तैयार मोदी सरकार " ।
