100 days of Modi sarkar: Congress to take out protest marches in UP

Modi government completes its 100 days in office on September 2.

Charging Narendra Modi government with not fulfilling the promises made before coming to power at the Centre, Congress has decided to take out protest marches across all the district headquarters of Uttar Pradesh on September 2, the day NDA completes its 100 days in office.

“During campaigning, Modi had promised to bring back black money stashed in foreign banks, check inflation among other things. But they have not yet been fulfilled. Not only eatables but the rail fares have also gone up during this period,” UPCC president Nirmal Khatri told reporters here.

“Modi used to make tall claims on the issue of security on borders but during these 100 days China and Pakistan have carried out so many incursions and firing … communal clashes have also gone up and Kanth and Saharanpur are some of its examples,” Khatri said.

The UPCC President said, “when Modi government completes 100 days on September 2, Congress will hold protest marches at all the district headquarters.”

He also said that in the districts where Model Code of Conduct is under force because of the bypolls, permission will be sought from the administration for marches.

Alleging misuse of official machinery and “pressurising of gram pradhans” in favour of the Samajwadi Party candidates in the upcoming bypolls, Khatri said he has sent a complaint in this regard to the Election Commission and demanded deployment of central forces for the bypolls.

The Congress leader claimed that BSP’s decision of not contesting the bypolls would benefit the Congress.

      Modi Government was on development mode and where they are lacking in development I would like to view my views. First, they should nationalise all vacant accommodation which are vacant for more than a year by giving notice to owners/builders to make them occupied within one month or else Registrar of University or Prinl of College should be asked to take forceful possession of the vacant accommodation for the use of children of their colleges/universities who have came from villages/other cities for education. I Know at least 100 such accommodation which are vacant for more than a year. A few of such accommodations are vacant for more than 10 years and a very few are lying vacant for more than 30 years. If accommodation is lying vacant since last 30 years is it not a national wastate? How a owner can earn profit out of such accommodation which was available for Rs.30,000/- in 1984 and now for Rs.30,00,000/- without paying any stamp duty and registration fees to government. Some builders have not sold such flats for more than 30 years nor have let out the flat. If Government requires I could give list of such vacant accommodations if request is made to me by Government. If the flat is unoccupied for more than 30 years Government should nationalise the flat for social purposes.

          Yes it is very difficult to deliver within 100 days but one shouldn't show such dreams and make such false promises.. Nothing changes over night ..it take ages to show effect of any good policy like white /green revolution ..making such false promises is also unethical

            Are you mad? Congress asking for black money to be brought back. What have they been doing for all those? They have been helping the culprits to move all the loots. Sonia/Rahul have looted a lot and hopefully Modi will speed up the return of loot. Why Sonia made so many trips to USA? No body believes her when Congi says she is just gone for check up with out any body saying the illness she had.

                This shows the real bankruptcy of their leaders and head less chicken atude as they are wallowing in depression due to shock defeat. These guys are unfit to rule the nation if this is their atude. They should have organized some constructive ways like donation of labor, blood, etc for construction of roads, toilets etc to reach the hearts of voters but not bandhs and agitations. Jaihind
