Modi provided relief from 'crisis of confidence': Shah

PTI, PANAJI | 28 May 2015 16:45 IST

Narendra Modi government has restored people's faith in Prime Minister's office and given relief to the country from "crisis of confidence" that existed during UPA's rule due to "extra-constitutional" powers, BJP chief Amit Shah said today.

"During UPA government there were extra-constitutional powers existing in the country. Now the BJP-led government has reinstated the faith in the office of Prime Minister," Shah told reporters during his day-long visit to Goa.

"During UPA rule, the Cabinet, bureaucracy and the people had no faith in the then Prime Minister. Now everyone has faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The BJP-led government has given relief to the country from this crisis of confidence," he asserted.

Shah was echoing remarks made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday in an interview to PTI where he suggested that Congress President Sonia Gandhi had been an "unconstitutional" authority exercising "real" power over the PMO during the UPA rule whereas power was now wielded only by constitutional means.

 

Shah alleged that the UPA, in its ten-year rule, was involved in scams worth Rs 12 lakh crore.

During one year of the Modi-led government, the opposition has not been able to point out a single instance of corruption, he said.

"We had assured to give corruption-free government which we have delivered. We have completely curbed corruption at higher level," the BJP president said.

"BJP had assured that once we are in power we will expose the black money stashed abroad. The UPA government never spoke about black money issue, but the Modi Cabinet, during its first meeting itself, constituted the SIT and began investigation," he said.

Stressing that the NDA government has initiated policies for all inclusive development, Shah said, "The government is now taking the states into confidence before finalising the financial plans. This will result in better development across the country." 

"The Modi government has managed to get the country's economy back on track," he said.

If Conversion is true then why Christians are micro-minority? Even Conversion is not a Crime. Because they don’t get love, support and respect from their religion, they come to Christianity. BJP hates Christians and hence they brought Ghar Wapsi and Love Jihad to harass Christians. Conversion is the only for the namesake to justify Ghar Wapsi and Love Jihad.
