Chidambaram slams BJP for failure to fulfil poll promises

Congress Congress

Guwahati, November 9, 2018:

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Friday slammed the BJP for allegedly failing to fulfill poll promises.

“The Congress is implacably opposed to the BJP because the BJP's vision of India is majoritarian, insular, exclusionary, discriminatory, oppressive and illiberal,” Chidambaram told reporters in Guwahati.

He added, “The BJP came to power on promises that it never intended to fulfill and which, anyway, was incompetent to deliver. Many of those promises were jumlas. The BJP president, in a moment of candour, admitted that the promise to bring back the black money allegedly stashed abroad and deposit Rs.15 lakh in the bank account of every citizen was a chunavi jumla”.

He added that the other promises made by the saffron party also vanished in thin air.

“Every promise has gone up in smoke,” Chidambaram said.

He continued “Nearing the end of its term, the BJP has resurrected the Hindutva agenda. On August 15, 2014, the Prime Minister had appealed to the people to put a moratorium of 10 years on all issues that were divisive and controversial. Today, that appeal has been forgotten and the BJP has embraced Hindutva and has reopened every issue that is divisive, controversial and polarising. It is our duty to caution the people that the BJP is taking the country on a path of conflict and economic disaster”.
