Govt repackaging UPA schemes, says Congress
Opposition on Thursday accused the NDA government of repackaging the schemes of the UPA regime and cutting down the allocations for schemes for farmers and poors while the ruling side insisted that India has emerged as the bright spot in the global economy.
Leading the Opposition attack, Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his ministers are working under the influence of RSS and there was a huge difference between their policies and intentions.
Speaking on the Motion of Thanks to President’s address, Kharge said the people who surround the Prime Minister won’t let him go too far.
Responding to the opposition’s charge, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said “we are proud of RSS” and its capacity, capability and devotion to this nation.
He said because of the steps taken by the NDA government, India, according to IMF chief, is now among the few bright spots in global economy and is an island of hope.
Responding to Kharge’s charge that eight government schemes are named after Prime Minister, Naidu said the Prime Minister is an institution and that one of the books had mentioned that 618 schemes in the country were named after one family. He said Modi will not the run the country for another 25 years but the institution of Prime Minister will be there.
