New Delhi: Accusing the government of flip-flops, indecision and miss-governance, BJP on Saturday said its policy paralysis and corruption have affected the country's growth rate and left its economy in a mess. (Agencies)
Slamming the government for its "failure" to control price rise and inflation, it also demanded an "immediate" roll back of hike in all administrative prices of diesel, gas, petrol, rail and other services "as the common man is reeling under unprecedented economic burden."
Targeting the government on the issue of corruption, it said, the VVIP helicopter scam and the Farm Loan Waiver scam are the latest additions in this government's "unending list of corruption."
"It is fascinating to note that Italy, which was to benefit from the helicopter deal, went after the bribe givers immediately when they got the wind of corruption, while India, the sufferer of this scam is not ready to trace the bribe takers. Mystery still shrouds over the mention of the recipients as 'the family'," the BJP Economic Resolution passed at its National Council meeting here said.
It said while the government has ordered a CBI probe, it is not ready to have it monitored by the court. "It has neither registered FIR nor issued Letters Rogatory
(LR). It is offering JPC knowing full well that it cannot investigate and come to conclusion. This fuels speculation that the government is more interested in ensuring a white wash to protect the bribe receivers rather than unearth the truth and punish the guilty," it said.
It said the biggest failure of the UPA government is its inability to tame inflation and bring down the prices. Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, while seconding the Economic Resolution, said India will scrap FDI in multi-brand retail policy when BJP-led NDA comes to power.
