Chandigarh 26th May:- Dr. Ashok Tanwar, former M.P., President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee has called the four years of BJP rule as an era of ‘National Betrayal’. During these four years all the sections of the society have been betrayed by the BJP Government.
He was addressing the media persons in connection with call given by the Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi to observe May 26 as “Vishvasghat Divas”. Smt. Sumitra Chauhan, President, Haryana Mahila Congress was also present on this occasion.
Giving facts and figures Dr. Tanwar said that Narender Modi has literally proved to be “Kisan Virodhi” (anti-farmer). The cost of input has increased but the return to the farmers for their crops has decreased. He said that as per RBI report the Rural Wage Growth which was 38% in 2014 has come down to 0% in 2018. Dr. Tanwar said that slogan of Doubling Farmers’ Income by 2022 is merely a Jumla. The BJP has promised to give farmers cost + 50% for their agricultural produce but this has proved a white lie. He said that the Fasal Bima Yojna has benefited the insurance companies and not the farmers. The profit of insurance companies has risen to 14828 crore rupees, whereas the compensation paid to the farmers has been merely 5650 crore.
The youth had been promised by Narender Modi that they will get 2 crore jobs every year, but only 4.16 lakh jobs were created in 2016-17 and the number of unemployed youth in February 2018 has swelled to 3.10 crore. He said that demonetization has resulted in loss of 15 lakhs jobs. He said that BJP Government has no clear education policy and in the four years of its rule the Cess charged for education has amassed to the tune of 160786.85 crore rupees and there is no clarification where this amount has gone. There have been frequent incidents of leakage of papers and another mafia named “Exam Mafia” has come into existence in the BJP misrule.
During the elections Narender Modi has shouted hoarse that he will never eat nor he will allow to be eaten, but four years of BJP rule under Narender Modi has resulted in scams like Punjab National Bank and other Public Sector Banks. This has resulted in shacking of faith of the countrymen in the banking system of India. A total of 61036 crores rupees of scams have taken place in 12 banks. He said that the Modi Government has not taken any action against the culprits of Vyapam, PDS and other scams. Narender Modi is keeping a stony silence in the matters of Jai Shah son of Amit Shah, President, Bhartiya Janta Pary and Piyush Goyal, a Union Minister. The people of the country have suffered a lot due to “Modinomics” which have destroyed the country’s economy.
The PCC Chief said that all the sections of the society even the house hold ladies are suffering from the pinch of petroleum price rise which have crossed all the reasonable limits. The price of petrol was 76.61 in 2014 when the crude price was $ 107.09 per barrel and now when the crude price is $ 76.43 per barrel, the petrol price has jumped beyond 80 Rs. per litre. The rise in the price of LPG has been more than 50% during these four years.
Dr. Tanwar announced that to educate the people of Haryana about the misrule of BJP at the Centre and in the State, the second phase of “Haryana Bachao-Parivartan Laao” cycle yatra will from Chautala in Sirsa district and May 31, 2018 and it will conclude on June 4, 2018 in Sirsa town. He said that in connection with the “Save Constitution Campaign” launched by the Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi, a state level sammelan will be organised by the Pradesh Congress at Karnal on May 27, 2018.
Earlier in the day, the Congress workers led by Dr. Ashok Tanwar and Sumitra Chauhan held a protest demonstration.
