Says only an early election is solution to problems plaguing countryA
Hyderabad : Reacting sharply to Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's direction to states for expedition of terror cases involving Muslim youth, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) senior leader and Rajya Sabha MP M Venkaiah Naidu alleged that the UPA government was trying to divide the nation on community lines.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday, Venkaiah Naidu stated that the BJP would oppose tooth and nail, any such move by the Centre. "Apart from Muslims, members of Hindu, Christian and other communities are languishing in jails for the last several years. In this backdrop, Centre's vote-bank politics to favour one section of people was nothing but provocation," charged the saffron party leader.
BJP would not remain silent, but make a big issue out of this, warned Venkaiah Naidu. Meanwhile, the former BJP president observed that an early election was the solution for several problems plaguing the country at present. He pointed out that the UPA was suffering from acute leadership deficit and lack of authority.
Stating that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had become a burden on the country, Venkaiah Naidu pointed out that the former's approach seemed to be seeing nothing, hearing nothing and doing nothing.
He informed that, as per a recent report, not only the Indian businessmen, even foreign investors were waiting for the next general elections to decide on investing in India.
