On Monday, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu slammed the Congress for using “disrupt, disinform and defame (3Ds)” formula against the Modi government, claiming that development is BJP government’s sole agenda.
“Unable to digest that a chaiwallah (tea seller) is gaining popularity across the world, the Congress has adopted 3Ds- disrupt (Parliament and government works), disinform (false propaganda) and defame (give a bad name to the prime minister),” the Union Urban Development and Information and Broadcasting Minister said.
Claiming that the Modi government has been corruption-free, he added, “Our government has been focusing on 3Ds – decisiveness, dynamism and development,”.
“Our overhead tank (the prime minister) is clean and that is why there has been no allegation of corruption in the last three years on the NDA government,” Naidu said, adding “there were scams and scandals in each sphere of life during the UPA regime”.
Taking a jibe at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, the Union Minister claimed that the Gandhi-scion loves only photo sessions with the people.
“He usually forgets his assurances and promises after having a photo session with the people wherever he goes. Be it the issues of Hyderabad University, JNU or agitation by farmers in Maharashtra or Madhya Pradesh, Rahul comes back home only after a photo session,” he said.
“Why did not Congress think of crop insurance and irrigation to farmlands in its 50 years of rule while Modi introduced the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana and the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana within three years in office?” questioned Naidu.
Speaking about the issues of waiving off farmers’ loans, Naidu said that it the subject of the State and Centre has no role to play here. He said the farmers’ issues are the creation of the Congress that has ruled the country for nearly 60 years.
“When the NDA came to power in 2014, the economy of the country was in a bad shape. Under the able stewardship of Modi, the Indian economy is growing fast. It is now a leading and emerging economy in the world,” he said.
He claimed that the NDA government had never waived the loans of any industrialist.
