New Delhi: Taking a potshot at Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi over the rule of the Nehru-Gandhi political dynasty, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah on Saturday asked the Gandhi scion to give the 'hisab' (account) of the performance of four generations of his family. Addressing a 'Garib Kalyan Mela' in Ranchi on Saturday, the BJP president said, "Rahul baba speaks a lot in America. But first of all Rahul baba should give 'hisab' (accounts) of his four generations which had ruled the country for over 50 years".
Spelling out the achievements of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre, Shah said, "Now everyone is confident that under the leadership of Modi, the country is scripting new developmental stories. The BJP has given such a transparent government that even our Opposition parties are not in a position to accuse us of any scams or corruption."
Praising Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das and his team for thrusting the state on the path of development and giving corruption-free rule in the state, Shah said, "It's due to the efforts of the Das government that Jharkhand stands at the second position after Gujarat with a growth rate of 8.6 per cent, which shows how much hard work the Raghubar Das government has done. It means that state government is doing its job the right way."
Stating that the Centre is committed to support the state government, Shah said, "The PM is standing like a rock with Jharkhand for its development. The state was created by former PM AB Vajpayee and the Modi Government is developing it."
"The Modi Government is committed to provide electricity to every house by 2022. Given that the Modi Government has electrified over 73 per cent of the 18,452 villages that were identified for electrification in 2015, the Centre would achieve its target well in time," Shah said.
Talking about the various steps against black money, Shah said, "In the last one year around 90 lakh new taxpayers have been brought into the ambit of the income tax, which is a record in itself."
