BJP Govt failed on all fronts: Ajit Pawar

Pune, Jun 7 (UNI) Former deputy chief minister of Maharashtra and
senior Nationalist Congress Party leader Ajit Pawar on Thursday hit
out at the ruling BJP-led government in state and at Centre,
accusing it of having failed in every sector.
Interacting with media persons at Patrakar Bhavan here this evening,
Mr Pawar targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that Mr Modi
had reneged on his promise made during the 2014 election campaigning
of bringing back the black money and giving Rs 15 lakh to every
citizen.
"How long will you fool the people? People have now understood you
and they will reply you with the same manner in upcoming assembly
and Lok Sabha elections," he said.
The NCP leader blamed the BJP government for not disclosing the
black money it had collected after demonetisation.
On the contrary, the demonetisation had resulted in the deaths of a
number of persons in the country, he said.
Comparing the current NDA government with previous UPA government,
he said that the UPA government had undertaken various development
works and enacted a host of welfare schemes for the benefit of poor
and downtrodden sections of society during its 15-year rule, on the
contrary, BJP was looting the people and wooing them with false
promises, he claimed.
Mr Pawar alleged that Mr Modi had also promised to provide
employment to two crore youths after coming to power but in vain,
which has resulted in unemployment crisis during BJP's rule.
In his attack on the state government, he said that the farmers were
still deprived of the benefit of loan waiver scheme because of the
filing of an online application for claiming the benefit.
Talking about the farmers’ suicides in the state, Mr Pawar claimed
the farmers’ suicides had sharply gone up under the BJP rule.
