Sitharaman posts impressive report card of BJP's 9-year rule

Mumbai, May 29 (IANS): Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented a glowing report card of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 9-years in office, terming them as full of progress and development, here on Monday.

Addressing the media as part of the BJP's all-India outreach to the masses, Sitharaman said that 80 crore people were given free foodgrain during the Covid-19 pandemic while 220 crore were administered Coronavirus vaccine doses nationwide.

"We have elevated the country's status globally in the past nine years, the poor have got food security with dignity... No other country has achieved so much in the same period in renewable energy," she said.

Discussing the achievements at the mass level, Sitharaman said 12 crore homes were given access to clean drinking water, 9.60 crore given free gas connections, and despite the global price rise, a subsidy of Rs 200 per gas cylinder was extended to the poor.

The Modi government has built over 3.50 crore pucca homes for the poor and nearly 12 crore toilets were built for them, resulting in 100 per cent coverage of toilets achieved in mofussil areas as compared with just 39 per cent nine years ago (2014).

Sitharaman was flanked by state Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, state BJP President Chandrashekhar Bawankule and other senior leaders as the party celebrates nine years of Modi's rule and the achievements across sectors ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

    Educated people of DK and Udupi, choose BJP, where as intelligent voters of karnataka, chose Congress, booting out BJP. Why? It is raising unemployment, inflation, joblosses and injustice, making the middle class and poor, grudgingly vote against BJP. All BJP promises and media, were just propapanda drama, that did not any connect with common people. Actually, BJP clearly indicated to middle and lower income group, which is 80perc of India, they only exist for it for votes. In terms of finance ministers of capability, one does not need to go far away, just have to listen to her own husband, to get a clarity on economic situation in India.

    hope the report card carries the utter failure to contain the agitating farmers and also not bringing the black money as promised and the expenditure done on non essential things like statue of vallabhai and parliament house construction....even scam in toilets...

    Udupi-Chikmagalur MP and BJP leader Shobha Karandlaje on 28th Feb 2019, claimed that about 2 lakh toilets have been built in the constituency under Swachh Bharat program. The total population of Udupi district as per census 2011 was 1,177,361. If two lacs toilets built in Udupi district mean one toilet for every 6 people. Have anyone seen these two lacs toilets, I did not see a single one. No NEW toilets had been added a municipality like Kaup, in the past 10 years. I think the development Sitaraman is talking about is like the development presented by Shoba K.
