BJP claims rival party is trivialising issues.

AFTER the Congress brought out a booklet on U- turns by the Narendra Modi government on Monday, the Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) hit back, claiming that the rival party is acting out of panic and has trivialised issues.

The BJP also asked the Congress to be patient as it will take time to undo the wrongs committed during the UPA rule, and said the party should introspect on its future.

" There is nothing substantial in the booklet. They are trying to trivialise by quoting from here and there, reported and purported speeches. We have just come to government. Give us some time. Have some patience... Don't trivialise issues... Decades of Congress rule left India in a very bad shape. To expect miraculous changes in just six months would be unjust," Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said. Naidu said government means business.

There is so much of hope among the people.

Referring to the massive defeat of the Congress party, Naidu said, " They have not learnt lessons from their electoral defeat. They are only trying to create some space in the media. They should get space for good things." Congress is out of focus. There is panic and it is worried about its future, about its relevance.

To prove their relevance, they are doing certain things they should not be doing, Naidu said.

" They should seriously ponder on what went wrong. Should utilise this precious time, do some introspection and try to find out the reasons for their defeat and then make demands... They tried to trivialise the black money issue.

They tried to make fun of Jan Dhan scheme," he said.

The minister said the Opposition can generate genuine public debate but the issues raised need to be of substantial public importance.

Naidu also accused the previous Congress- led UPA regime of spoiling every system and every institution, and questioned why it failed to remove poverty in the country.

By Mail Today Bureau in New Delhi There is nothing substantial in the booklet. They are trying to trivialise by quoting from here & there, reported and purported speeches. To expect miraculous changes in just six months would be unjust.
