Despite slowdown, BJP lists achievements of 100 days

Despite slowdown, BJP lists achievements of 100 days

Gurdaspur, September 13

Notwithstanding the economic slowdown the country is staring at, the BJP has gone on an overdrive to list its ‘achievements’ in the last 100 days.

The party has instructed its state units to hold press conferences across the country and spell out “what it is has done till yet and what it intends to do in the future.”

Punjab BJP chief Shwait Malik addressed one such press conference in Gurdaspur where he said the party’s biggest accomplishment was abrogation of Article 370 in J&K. “The defining feature of the BJP government is the unshakeable political will to settle long-standing and contentious issues, both political and economic, in national interest. The abrogation of Article 370 is clear evidence of this. The party has corrected an historic wrong,” he said.

Malik also delved on the ‘Fit India’ and ‘Eat Right Campaign’.

Training his guns on Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, Malik said the people of the state were asking where the proceeds of the development tax introduced by the Punjab Government were going. “The CM was quick to announce the imposition of the ‘Development tax.’ However, people are now asking where are the proceeds going and how is the government using it. At least, on the ground level I cannot see any development,” he said.

Malik added that the state had started selling government properties. “I have evidence that government school buildings are being sold to raise money. When the SAD-BJP combine was in power from 2007 till 2017, then CM Parkash Singh Badal did not sell even a single government property. Amarinder is spending money on appointing OSD, advisers and elevating MLAs to Cabinet rank positions. They are being paid from the tax payers’ money. This, and other such extravagant schemes of the Congress government, have forced the CM to start selling school buildings,” he said.

“While PM Narendra Modi is starting public-friendly schemes regularly, Amarinder is happy to shut down popular programmes like the Shagun scheme and the Atta-Dal initiative, leading to disgruntlement against his own party. The Congress government had promised to provide electricity at the rate of Rs 5 per unit but it was giving power at Rs 11 per unit. Compare this with J&K where electricity is being given at just Rs 3 per unit,” said Malik.
