NCP, TC shadows of Congress : Modi

india Updated: Sep 19, 2009 20:39 IST

NCP and Trinamool Congress in Arunachal Pradesh are but shadows of Congress, while BJP is the 'real' non-Congress party, BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi said on Saturday.

BJP is the real non-Congress party fighting for uprooting Congress, which, he said, has become synonymous with corruption and price rise.

Whenever Congress came to power there was escalation in prices of rice, pulses and other essential items. During the A.B Vajpayee rule at the Centre the prices of sugar and rice was less than half of what it is now, Modi, who is also the deputy chief Minister of Bihar, told an election rally here.

In Arunachal Pradesh, the people had remained poor though the state was endowed with large natural resources as thousands of crores of rupees the Centre had granted during the long tenure of the Congress had been 'looted'.

States like Bihar, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh or Karnataka which are under BJP are progressing. "Laluji promised to make the roads like the cheeks of Hema Malini but failed and we did it in the last four years. Narendra Modi brought so much development in Gujarat in last 8 years, which the Congress could not achieve in 50 years", he claimed.

In Bihar an anti-corruption law has been promulgated for the first time in the country to confiscate property acquired through corrupt practices and reward informers. None could point a finger at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar but in Arunachal Pradesh the ruling Congress had purchased all the nine opposition BJP MLAs, including the leader of the opposition and engineered their defection.
