Marking a year in office of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre, he launched an all-round attack on UPA government and cited, "Herein lies the difference between UPA's crony capitalism and institutional destruction and NDA's liberalisation and anti-corruption, combined with an emphasis on both strengthening institution building and social security for the poor and vulnerable."

"The 'scam and scandal, corruption and retribution' Raj is behind us," he added in a Facebook post titled 'The Fall of UPA's Crony Capitalism - A Year of Reform'. Recalling the situation that existed a year ago, Jaitley stated the UPA government wanted to centralise power in its own hands rather than promote non-discretionary and rule-based governance.
