New Delhi: The NDA government which is completing two years has succeeded in bringing stability in governance and has steered cleared of the problems left behind by the UPA government. The measures taken by the Modi government to put the country on a fast pace of development will now start showing results, said M Muralidhar Rao, BJP national general secretary.
In an interview to The Hans India here on Friday, Rao said that the NDA under Modi’s leadership had raised aspirations of people and they had reposed great faith in him. Modi took over the reigns at a time when people were totally disillusioned with the UPA. The country was facing financial crisis and there was global recession.
During the past two years, the government had taken several bold measures to steer clear the country out of the problems and put it on the track to development. It had created a sense of stability and had succeeded in bringing greater transperancy in governance, he said. The government, he said, had fulfilled some of the promises it had made before coming to power and had laid the foundation on other issues.
The government had shown a growth rate of 7.5% despite recession in the world. The investments, including foreign investments had increased. It had successfully handled natural calamities effectively, he added. Referring to the criticism that some of the schemes like Jan Dhan were for publicity sake, Rao said that the very fact that 21,000 crore accounts had been opened, indicated the success of the scheme.
“The long journey is on and the fruits of the schemes would now start showing up. The government has given 5 crore gas connections under the Ujjwal Yojana scheme, he said. In reply to another question, he said Congress and some other parties were trying to create hatred and suspicion among the people against the intentions of the government and were creating hurdles in development process.
Asked about the promise of bringing back black money, he said it was a major challenge and the government had already taken certain measures and it was sure to curb the menace of black money. He also refuted the charge that the minorities were being ignored under the NDA government. He said it was a deliberate propaganda by certain parties who believe in vote bank politics.
When pointed out that there was criticism that the NDA was not showing due respect to the Opposition, he said the government had been consulting the Opposition on all important issues though the main Opposition indulged in politics of blackmail. The Opposition should play a constructive role, he said.
Replying to another question, he said the alliance dharma was intact and the very fact that Chief Ministers of all the alliance parties attended the swearing in ceremony of Assam Chief Minister, indicated that all was well with the NDA.
