Shahkot: BSP president Mayawati today slammed the Narendra Modi government at the Centre for its historic failure on dealing with the issues which concern the common man.
“The four years of Narendra Modi government prove that it has historically failed on the issues of inflation, poverty, unemployment, welfare work and other issues which affect the life of the people in the country,” Mayawati said.
“The BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself term all their work as historic and that is why fuel prices are at a historic high during his government, she said.
There is a need to control it or else BSP will be forced to start nationwide protest dharnas against it, she warned while speaking on the completion of four years of the Modi government.
The Bahujan Samaj Party chief accused the Modi government of misusing official machinery to weaken opposition parties.
Under such a scenario it had no right to celebrate its four years by spending crores of rupees which could be used on people’s welfare, she said.
She said the parting of ways by some National Democratic Alliance partners indicated that the BJP-led government was unsuccessful.
“The NDA alliance partners are parting ways one by one and this proves that the four years of the BJP-led government have been most unsuccessful and disappointing at all levels,” Mayawati said.
“This kind of exploitation of the poor, labourers, common people and women under the central government has never been seen before, she said.
She accused the government of chori aur seena jori doing wrong and then boasting about it and said its promises remained unfulfilled.
Mayawati had convened a meeting of her party office bearers later in the day.
She said the BJP’s own people were not listening to the leaders and it was an indication that the countdown of the Modi government had started, she said.
The BSP chief claimed that the government had bowed before the capitalists, as a result of which the country’s economy had suffered and the people were concerned whether their money was safe in the banks.
On other hand, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh today exuded confidence that a united opposition will oust the BJP-led government at the Centre, which he described as a “total failure on all counts”.
Talking to reporters during his roadshow here, he said the anti-BJP forces were coming together and would throw the saffron party out of power since the people were completely fed up with it.
“People want change, they want a future, they want a government that delivers,” Singh said, adding that the Narendra Modi government would “bear the consequences” of its “ill-conceived” policies in the Lok Sabha elections next year.
The economy has been destroyed, industry is fleeing, law and order has collapsed, prices of diesel, petrol and other essentials were out of control. Nobody wants such an India, he said.
The chief minister said the problems faced by the country under the Modi government were immense and people are not willing to give another chance to them.
