Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national secretary Abhimanyu on Monday charged that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime had failed to tackle burning issues like rising prices, terrorism, naxalism and unemployment.
Talking to media persons here, Capt. Abhimanyu said that there was nothing to celebrate about the UPA government completing one year in power. Rather, the people were fed up with the UPA regime headed by Manmohan Singh as it had failed miserably to deliver the goods.
He further demanded that the Prime Minister should apologise to the nation for the abject failure of his government to bring down the skyrocketing prices.
He alleged that the “wrong" policies of the UPA regime were "promoting terrorism and naxalism." There were differences of opinion between the UPA Cabinet and the Congress as to how to tackle naxalism. The issue had assumed national proportions and it was no longer a State matter. The BJP was ready to help the UPA government in finding a solution to the issue, he added.
Capt. Abhimanyu further said that the Prime Minister was maintaining silence about the "mega scam involved in the allotment of 2G spectrum."
Flaying the Haryana Government for its "non-performance," he charged that there was no law and order in the State. It was a sad state of affairs that aggrieved women seeking justice had to commit suicides outside the office of the Director- General of Police. He condemned Monday's incident in which a woman belonging to Kurukshetra reportedly attempted to commit suicide outside the DGP's office.
He further alleged that there was a massive power and water crisis in the State.
Regarding Khap Panchayats, he said these were part of the social fabric. The Khaps should not take law in their own hands, he added while stating that the Government should examine their demand seeking amendment to the Hindu Marriage Act to prohibit same gotra (caste/sub-caste) marriages.
