BJP slams UPA govt on rising prices as it completes 100 days in office
On the occasion of the UPA Government completing first 100 days of its second inning at the office on Saturday, the Bharatiya Janata Party blamed the government of having become instrumental in thrusting more sufferings on the masses instead of giving relief to common man on the price front.
Criticising the Centre's claims of implementing promises in its first 100 days in office, the BJP on Saturday alleged that the UPA had belied hopes of the people.
Addressing media persons, BJP spokesman Prakash Javdekar said the Government had also failed to deliver on promises regarding the Women's Reservation Bill, strengthening the Right to Information Act and some flagship programmes.
Javdekar blamed the UPA Govt. of taking a U-turn on national consensus on vital issues like climate change, WTO and Indo-Pak comprehensive dialogue and alleged that the government had committed its worst diplomatic blunder on these fronts.
Meanwhile, senior women political leaders on Saturday criticised the ruling Congress party for not keeping its promise on passing Women's Reservation Bill in the first 100 days after coming to power.
Brinda Karat, Polit Bureau Member of Communist Party Of India (Marxist), said it's very important to have the Constitution amended for increased representation of women in Parliament.
