Drawing a contrast between “scam-tainted” UPA government and “unblemished” NDA-led Centre, which completed two years in office, BJP chief Amit Shah on Tuesday said the party will “uproot” the Samajwadi Party and BSP from Uttar Pradesh in the 2017 Assembly polls.
“Two days ago, Congress vice-president had addressed a rally and sought to know what were the achievements of the Modi government, which recently completed its two years. Let me enumerate what this government has achieved, drawing a contrast with the decade-long period when his own party was in power,” he said at a rally in Andawa, about 35 kms from here.
“You (Rahul) had put in the seat of power a ‘mauni baba’ (an apparent reference to former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh). We have given the country a PM who is ready to communicate on every important issue.
“While you (Congress) were in power, financial irregularities to the tune of lakhs of crores of rupees had come to light. Modi government is unblemished even after completing two years in office,” he said.
The BJP president, who was addressing a ‘Kisan Sammelan’, stressed that the 2014 Lok Sabha election results had only “partially enabled” the party to reach the benefits of development to Uttar Pradesh.
