Polls a war between truth and lies: Nath

Hoshangabad, MP, Apr 15 (UNI) Even as the Indian electoral scene has veritably transformed into a political Kurukshetra with statements, allegations and counter-allegations flying thick and fast; Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath averred on Monday that the Lok Sabha polls comprise an epic struggle between justice and injustice, betwixt truth and falsehood.
“On the one hand, Premier Narendra Modi speaks of providing a paltry Rs 6,000 per annum to cultivators while on the other Congress President Rahul Gandhi promised Rs 6,000 per month to the indigent under the minimum income guarantee scheme, which translates into Rs 72,000 annually. Posing as watchman, Mr Modi actually aided looters such as Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi in skipping the country. The Rafale mega scam benefitted a certain tycoon. This is a golden opportunity for teaching a lesson to New Delhi’s present dispensation that perpetrated chicanery on peasants, youth and the rest of the populace over the past half a decade. Demonetisation snatched employment on a titanic scale. Improper implementation of the Goods and Services Tax mechanism demolished domestic commerce. This state witnessed closure of industrial units. The national banks and state’s coffers are empty,” he said while addressing a public meeting in this district.

Mr Modi has no answer vis-a-vis his earlier assurances of bringing back black money stashed overseas, depositing Rs 15 lakh in every person’s account, generating two crore jobs, Make in India, Digital India and Start-up India, Mr Nath felt, adding that the Prime Minister is now resorting to playing with mass sentiments by speaking of core nationalism and lambasting Pakistan.

In Madhya Pradesh’s context, the seasoned politician pointed out that portals of progress were thrown open within a period of 100 days after a mandate in Congress favour ended 15 years of saffron rule.

“Major decisions taken by us have made the government’s policies and intentions abundantly clear. The coming days shall herald a revolution in the agriculture, employment and other sectors under the development umbrella,” the Chief Minister assured.
