Ra­j­nath Singh con­fi­dent about win­ning 2014 polls

The Political and Business Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

BJP pres­i­dent Ra­j­nath Singh to­day ex­pressed con­fi­dence about win­ning the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, and said that his po­lit­i­cal out­fit wants to build an In­dia that is not only af­flu­ent, but can lead the world in knowl­edge and tech­nol­ogy.

"We have to achieve our mis­sion in 2014. We have to form the govern­ment in In­dia un­der the lead­er­ship of BJP in 2014 so that we can take In­dia to the pin­na­cle of glory... and build an In­dia that is not only wealthy, but can lead the world in knowl­edge and tech­nol­ogy," he said, while ad­dress­ing the BJP Mahila Karyakarta Sam­me­lan here. Singh also raised his voice for a Congress-free In­dia.

"You might have seen how the Congress has come up with new def­i­ni­tions of poverty. Those sit­ting in power have no un­der­stand­ing about the pains of poverty. I would like to tell the lead­ers sit­ting in power that if you want to see poverty, don't see it in statis­tics. If you want to see poverty, look into the eyes of the poor," he said.

Singh claimed that the Congress Party has not been able to achieve suc- cess in re­mov­ing poverty and un­em­ploy­ment.

"We sup­port Te­lan­gana cause. The BJP is com­mit­ted to form the state. Govern­ment should grant it im­me­di­ately," party chief Ra­j­nath Singh told re­porters af­ter at­tend­ing the BJP's SC Mor­cha National Ex­ec­u­tive meet­ing in Delhi.

Leader of Op­po­si­tion in Ra­jya, Arun Jait­ley, who also spoke on the oc­ca­sion, launched a scathing at­tack on Prime Min­is­ter Dr. Man­mo­han Singh over the de­te­ri­o­rat­ing con­di­tion of the In­dian econ­omy.

"The Prime Min­is­ter is an econ­o­mist, but there has been a con­sis­tent de­cline in the econ­omy in last 10 years," he said.

Jait­ley al­leged that the UPA Govern­ment has be­come heart­less and is mak­ing fun of the poor by ma­nip­u­lat­ing poverty fig­ures.

High­light­ing the fail­ures of the UPA Govern­ment, Jait­ley claimed that the elec­tions can take place any time.
