Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot on Friday said the three years of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government has been an utter failure and a huge disappointment for the people.
Addressing a public gathering at Sirohi, Pilot said the BJP government has failed on all parameters, including internal security, inflation, corruption, crime against women, plight of farmers, rights of Dalits and minorities.
The BJP was spreading anarchy in the name of gau raksha (cow protection), he said.
Pilot accused the government of being indifferent about the schemes launched by the previous Congress government and of being disconnected with people.
“The BJP has never tried to understand the basic problems of the people,” he said.
“Today, Rajasthan has become a hub of corruption and it’s the BJP leaders who are exposing the corrupt deeds of their own party.”
State Congress general secretary Pankaj Mehta addressing a news conference in Kota, said the Narendra Modi government at the Centre was a complete failure during the last three years.
Prime Minister Modi and his cabinet colleagues promised to provide employment to youngsters but unemployment has further increased in the country after the Centre decided to scrap high-value bank notes, he said.
The Modi government promised to increase farmers’ agricultural income but the Centre and BJP-led Rajasthan government neither increased the minimum support price (MSP) of the crops nor bought important crop like mustard in the MSP list.
“Instead of setting up industrial units, the Instrumentation Limited, a public sector undertaking in Kota, was shut,” he said.
The BJP government promised to resume regular flights from the Kota airport but there has been no progress even after three years, he said.
