Terming the UPA government “incapable” of taking firm and timely decisions,senior BJP leader L K Advani today said,“India deserves better” — a catch phrase likely to be used by the saffron party for its poll campaign.

“Here is a government (UPA) that is incapable of taking firm and timely decisions. Surely,India deserves better,” the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate said,raising his pitch on the party’s determination to replace the “current despair” with “optimism” if voted to power.

“India deserves better on yet another count…It will be our endeavour to replace the pervasive mood of despair with a strong sense of optimism. For this,we shall do so by doing what a government ought to do — govern,and govern well,” he said addressing FICCI’s Annaul General Body meet here on Thursday.

“The days of weak and compromising leadership will be over. India demands strong leadership today. No more will the office of Prime Minister be devalued,as has happened in the past five years in which 7 Race Course Road has become subservient to 10 Janpath,” Advani claimed.

“We (BJP-led NDA) shall adopt an approach of zero- tolerance towards both terrorism and corruption. Institutions of governance will not be misused to protect either one’s own or target rivals,as has happened brazenly in the past five years,” he said.
