With Congress offensive, BJP govt on retreat: Brahm Mohindra

Pathankot/Gurdaspur, Oct 7 (UNI) Punjab Health and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Brahm Mohindra on Saturday said the BJP government at the Centre was on the retreat after the Congress led by its vice-president Rahul Gandhi launched a massive offence against its anti-people policies like demonetisation and poor implementation of the GST.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of his campaign meetings in support of party candidate Sunil Jakhar here, Mr Mohindra said Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had been forced to review the GST rates after Mr Gandhi consistently raised his voice against its wrong and draconian implementation.

He said the revision of the rates by the BJP government was an admission on its part that it had grossly gone wrong with the GST implementation. At the same time, he added, it was the vindication of the stand taken by the Congress that finally made the BJP to see the reason behind public outcry.

Mr Mohindra maintained that the Gurdaspur bypoll will mark the beginning of the end for the BJP government at the Centre. "This election will set the tone for the 2019 General Elections," he said, adding that it will herald the return of the Congress.

The Congress leader said the BJP had undone everything in three years that had been achieved during the 10-year-rule of the UPA under prime ministership of Dr Manmohan Singh.

He said Punjab under the leadership of Capt Amarinder Singh has already started the process of the return of the Congress. "Gurdaspur will be the repeat of the 2017 assembly elections under Capt Amarinder Singh's leadership", he asserted while expressing confidence that the Congress will win the election with a record margin and it will be a clear referendum against the wrong and anti-people policies of the BJP government.
