Chaos, confusion reigned supreme during 3-yr NDA regime: Sena

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Picking holes in the performance of the Modi-led government, the today said last three years have been riddled with chaos and confusion, and holding any celebrations would mean indifference towards anguish of people, farmer deaths and soldiers' sacrifice.

"People are in anguish, farmers are committing suicide and soldiers are sacrificing their lives. If somebody wants to celebrate (three years in power) even now, it would mean they are indifferent towards these issues," said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana'.

It said that crores would be spent from the coffers on holding celebrations across the nation and called for an analysis on how much money has the present spent on work and how much on advertisements.

"Thousands of crores have been spent on 'Swacch Abhiyan'. Has the nation become clean? A costly programme has been started to clean up Is Ganga becoming clean or are coffers becoming empty?," it questioned.

The Uddhav Thackeray-led party said the was voted to power based on its promises of ushering in 'Acche Din', bringing back and depositing Rs 15 lakh in every Indian citizen's account but nothing of that sort has happened yet.

"On the contrary, people were left stunned with the demonetisation move which made them overlook problems like corruption, and inflation," it said.

"They (the BJP) promised swift action against Pakistan after coming to power, but jawans are being killed and butchered every day, while the government keeps issuing warnings. Naxalites have created havoc," it said.

"Was voted to power to keep giving hollow warnings? Today, there is an atmosphere of utter chaos and confusion. Unemployment is growing and value of rupee is decreasing," the Sena said.

It said while the stock markets are soaring, farmers' lives have come crashing down, as they are forced to burn their tur dal and throw away their onion produce.

The Sena said it had also happily celebrated the victory of three years ago, but today it is sad to see farmers, soldiers and people dying a painful death.
