Dubbing the UPA-II as a "failed" government, BJP on Wednesday said it would bring out a 'people's report card' on the Manmohan Singh government to expose its "anti-people" policies.
"I had thought that the government will be too embarrassed to hold a programme to mark its two years in office. But I was surprised to see a beaming (UPA chairperson) Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Singh issuing a report card on the UPA II's performance," Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said here.
The BJP leader said the BJP plans top bring out a 'people's report card' in the near future, in a bid to expose the government's anti-people policies. She, however, did not give any time frame.
"The contents of the people's report card should be memorised by the workers so that they can inform the people about the performance of UPA II," she said.
Swaraj was addressing a public meeting on the performance of the UPA-II government during its two years in office.
"While releasing the report card, Gandhi and Singh promised to root out corruption. It is nothing but a lie as one of their ministers and a senior party MP are in jail over charges of corruption. An MP of its ally is also in jail," she said.
Terming the government as a "failed" one, she said the term "oversight" is popular with its ministers and officers.
"Be it the faulty list of most wanted or the External Affairs Minister reading out the speech of his Portuguese counterpart, the only excuse they can think of its oversight...it is a 'Ram bharose' government," she said.
