Congress wasted Parliament’s time: BJP

Hyderabad: Taking a dig at the UPA government's announcement that it was not averse to discussion on FDI under any rule, BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday asked the Congress to explain why it wasted four precious days of Parliament on the issue.

"Why the government, particularly Congress party, wasted four precious days of Parliament?" Naidu asked. "Indifference, incompetence, incoherence and indecision of the Congress-led UPA government is costing the country dearly," he said.

Alleging that the Congress had failed to take its allies into confidence, Naidu said the party did not follow the "coalition dharma".

The moment the decision on FDI was announced, TMC left the alliance and supporting parties like DMK, SP and BSP said they were not consulted on the issue, he said.

Ridiculing the arguments of some parties backing the UPA government on the issue of FDI to prevent "communal" forces from coming to power, Naidu alleged "they (some allies) are not bothered about people's welfare but are only interested in their politics."

"It has become a habit with some parties to raise the bogus bogie of communalism as and when they have to back an opportunistic decision and make a U-turn to support the corrupt and anti-people government," the BJP leader alleged.

Asserting that his party stood firm on the decision to have a discussion and voting in Parliament on FDI issue, Naidu said the people of the country would then know the double standards of certain parties.

To a query on the announcement of cash transfer scheme, Naidu said, "We will study the scheme for its pros and cons in detail before taking a final decision."

A two-member committee constituted by party leader L K Advani would look into details of the scheme, he said. Naidu, however, said there were villages with no bank branches at all. "Let the government first ensure opening of (banks) branches before its implementation," he stressed.

    NOVEMBER 28, 2012: India's population is a mountain of S-H-I-T. Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray are particles of S-H-I-T in this mountain of S-H-I-T. Saying that the Congress party has the numbers to let Foreign Direct Investment sail through is like saying Shiv Sena has the numbers to jail anyone writing against particles of S-H-I-T like Bal Thackeray and Raj Thackeray. What matters is not who has the numbers but who has nuclear weapons. The British did not have the numbers in 1857 yet enforced their will by killing, by guns and sword, over ten million Indians in just the ten years after 1857 and continue to enforce their will today of which the ability of Anglo-Americans to bring Foreign Direct Investment -- via Indian governments which are proxies for the CIA with all political parties controlled by CIA-RAW -- is an example. But not guns and sword but nuclear weapons are what matter today and who has the nuclear weapons? IndiasTraitorGovtAndMediaDOTblogspot.com Satish Chandra
