BJP leading country to conflict, economic disaster: Chidambaram

BJP leading country to conflict, economic disaster: Chidambaram

Guwahati, Nov 9 (UNI) Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha member P Chidambaram today launched a scatting attack on the BJP-led NDA government in the Centre alleging that it was taking the country to a path of conflict and economic disaster.

Addressing a press conference here, Chidambaram said, "Nearing the end of its term, the BJP has resurrected the Hindutva agenda. From the prime minister to chief ministers to ministers to party functionaries to pracharaks to supporters, everyone has embraced Hindutva and re-opened every issue that is divisive, controversial and polarising."

He further said, "Our immediate concern is the BJP government's determined efforts to wreck or capture crucial institutions of the country. The latest victim is the Reserve Bank of India."

Alleging that the BJP has no understanding of the role of the central bank, Chidambaram said, "The immediate goal of the government is to lay its hands on the reserves of the RBI and appropriate at least Rs one lakh crore to meet its fiscal deficit target and to increase spending in an election year. It will have catastrophic consequences."

The former Union minister further alleged that the BJP has failed to keep its election promises, claiming that the party had come to power on promises it never intended to deliver.

"The Congress is implacably opposed to the BJP, not because the BJP is a rival political party. It is because the BJP's vision of India is majoritarism, insular, exclusionary, discriminatory, oppressive and

illiberal," he added.

Chidambaram is in Guwahati to participate in an Open House consultation on the manifesto of the Congress party for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
