With the BJP-led NDA government set to complete two years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday listed Mudra scheme, increased LPG coverage and electrification of villages as its major achievements and asked BJP MPs to take these “successes” to the people.
At the Parliamentary Party’s meeting, which was attended by the top brass of the government and the party, including its chief Amit Shah, the Prime Minister maintained that the commitment that the government had made to the people has been fulfilled.
The issue of VVIP chopper scam, over which the BJP has targeted Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, was also taken up at its Parliamentary Party meet.
The issue is slated to be debated in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, whereas Lok Sabha will take it up on May 6, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy said after the meet.
Briefing the media after the meeting, Rudy said, “Mudra scheme, ongoing electrification of 18,000 villages, bringing over 3 crore families under the LPG network and distribution of cheap LED lights were cited as major successes. He (PM Modi) asked the members to take them to people”.
Modi government will complete two year on May 26, 2016.
Riding on what is popularly termed as “Modi wave”, BJP stormed into office winning 284 seats in 2014 General Elections. Such was the extent of BJP’s victory that it clean swept states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and nearly swept Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana.
On the other hand, Congress party was relegated to just 44 seats, its worst electoral performance.
