Modi hits out at Congress, terms it ‘hawalabaaz’ 

New Delhi, Sep 10 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hit out at the Congress for not allowing parliament to function during the monsoon session, terming it ‘hawalabaaz’ (corrupt) and accusing it of creating roadblocks for the government.

“Decisions were taken one after another in parliament. The ‘hawalabaaz’ were worried at the tough decisions by the government against black money. They could sense trouble ahead. That’s why they are putting roadblocks on all major decisions,” Modi said while addressing BJP workers in Bhopal before inaugurating the 10th Vishwa Hindi Sammelan.

Modi’s attack on the Congress came after its president, Sonia Gandhi, on Tuesday launched a frontal attack on Modi, terming his electoral promises as nothing more than “hawabaazi”(hot air).

“We had hoped that the Congress will work with us, help parliament in enforcing (fiscal) reforms but ‘ek hai jo manta nahi’ (there is one who does not agree). The Congress has not been able to digest defeat (in Lok Sabha elections),” Modi said.

Assuring the people of India about fulfilling their dreams, the prime minister appealed “to those defeated and rejected by the people to please let the nation move ahead”.

“Every political party must leave no stone unturned to meet public expectations if it won and also introspect in case of defeat,” he added.

“We faced defeat in 1984. We introspected and tried to learn from that defeat. But we didn’t criticise others and corrected our mistakes instead. Today, the nation has given us a majority (in Lok Sabha).”

“There was a time when the BJP had only two MPs in parliament. The then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi made fun of BJP in parliament and we had to listen to it,” Modi recalled.

“There was a time when the Congress had more than 400 seats in parliament, but now had been reduced to 40-odd seats,” he added.

    Modi has not taken any step to bring in any law to punish the corrupt till date. The Congress has not put any road block for change of law to punish the corrupt. It means that Modi knows that the existing laws can punish the guilty. Now that modi is the ruler, he has a duty to prosecute the Congress people if they are corrupt, and he has no right now to make any wild accusations as he did when in the opposition.

    MR. MODI, IF YOU HAVE ANY CONSCIOUSNESS, COME ON, PROSECUTE THE CONGRESS PEOPLE WHOM YOU CALLED AS CORRUPT, OR ELSE SHUT UP. YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS TO JUST MAKE WILD ALLEGATIONS AND SIT TIGHT WITHOUT PROSECUTING THEM AS YOU DID WHEN IN THE OPPOSITION.

    Mr. Modi, how can you hope that the Congress would work with you. You stabbed the Congress without any holds barred. You should expect to get in larger measure what you did to Congress and the nation to become the P.M.

    Dear readers,

    Did PM remember opposition BJY the cavalier manner in which it had brought the last Lok Sabha to a historical low seems to have evaporated from its self-righteous memory as it accuses the Opposition of undemocratic behaviour?

    The 15th Lok Sabha, with UPA II government, was the crowning glory of the BJP in disruption of the Parliament – at 61 percent, its productive time was the worst in Indian legislative history. During the same period, the record for Rajya Sabha was equally dismal – 66 percent. Compared to 297 bills during the 13th Lok Sabha, when the BJP-led NDA was in power and Congress in opposition, the UPA II could pass only 179 out of its planned 328 bills. Several serious pieces of legislation such as Women’s Reservation Bill, Direct Taxes Code, Micro Finance Bill, Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill and the Bill enabling the introduction of Goods and Services Tax just lapsed. What was more tragic was that 60 per cent of the question time was wasted by the BJP-led acrimony.

    Let our busy Pravasi Minister Modi should retrospect his ‘Good governance’ which we promised to citizens of India.

    Why his government carefully avoided ‘Vyapam Baaz’ in Madhya Pradesh government ruled by Shivraj Singh Chouhan?

    Jai Hind
