Highlighting the alleged failures of the NDA government, former Union minister RPN Singh on Thursday suggested that the BJP should become a case study for event management companies.

“They (BJP) have managed…event management of schemes be it Skill India, Digital India, Stand up India. All the showcasing of these events, I think, should become a case study for event management companies,” Singh said.

He added that unfortunately though all these schemes have been introduced beautifully but none of them has worked.

Singh alleged that a numbers of schemes were introduced but nothing was done to implement them. “Swacch Abhiyan is being talked about...sanitation is very important but the country will not get cleaned by just clicking photographs.”

Two years have passed and the people are still waiting for ‘achhe din’ (good days) which Modi had promised in his speeches, he said.

“Modi had promised two crores jobs every year, but labour department’s figures reveal that 1.34 lakh jobs have been provided,” Singh claimed.

Around 3,000 farmers committed suicide, of which 1,800 were from Maharashtra, he claimed.

“Exports are declining since the last 17 months,” he alleged. The price of petrol in Delhi is Rs 63 per litre and diesel Rs 51, which should have been even lower, Singh said. “Who has received Rs 15 lakh in bank account which Modi promised after bringing back black money?

“BJP played a dangerous game on internal security—after coming in power they got a person free from jail allegedly involved in Malegaon blast. In order to save its people, BJP is playing with terrorism which is dangerous for the country,” alleged Singh.

Modi talks of corruption but kept silent on Vyapam scam, mining scam in Rajasthan, PDS scam in Chhattisgarh.

Singh asked why Modi is silent on the CAG report hinting at a Rs 20,000 crore scam in GSBC pipeline in Gujarat when he was chief minister.
