‘Nation on verge of change’, BJP says they are poll ready

Attacking the government for being corrupt and inefficient, Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday said that the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government is a sinking ship and it is getting difficult for the common man to survive in the current political scenario. ‘Nation is on the verge of change, elections in the country can happen any time’ said BJP President Nitin Gadkari, in his inaugural speech during the three day national executive and nation council meet of the party. Looking forward for an early election, BJP spokesperson, Ravi Shankar Prasad said that party is ready for elections even if they are held within one month.

The party president alleged that the Congress party has institutionalised corruption and have subverted democratic institutes like Joint Parliamentary Committee and Public Accounts Committee.

‘Commercialisation of coalition politics has been done by the government, every coalition partner is subjected to price mechanism’ said Gadkari. The party president also alleged that the government uses CBI to target its opposition and remains on the side of its allies. ‘CBI should open an extension counter at the Congress office’ said Gadkari. The party also rejected with contempt the allegations by Congress President Sonia Gandhi that BJP is spreading canards.


Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma on Wednesday asserted that policy formulations such as allowing FDI in multi-brand retail trade was the prerogative of the elected government of the day, while dismissing BJP’s threat that it could be scrapped if NDA comes to power. ‘I am shocked that at a time when there are serious challenges to economy, the BJP is trying to confuse and scare away the foreign investors ... this statement reflects and confirms the cynicism of the principal opposition party,’ Sharma told reporters on Wednesday in Delhi.
