Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad today implicated the BJP-led government of repackaging schemes started by the UPA federal government and passing them off as its own. Speaking in Rajya Sabha, Mr Azad called numerous plans, including the federal government’s flagship “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” initiative which, he said were instances of repackaging.
“In politics, there is a requirement for at least some honesty … Nobody understands repackaging much better than the BJP federal government,” Mr Azad said.The Congress has consistently claimed that the BJP-led government has been on a repackaging binge. Last year, its senior leader Shashi Tharoor had claimed that the federal government has renamed 19 of the 23 plans released by the Congress government. Providing a list, Mr Tharoor had actually tweeted: “Why we in @INCIndia insist this is a name-changing government, not a game-changing one!”
Today, Mr Azad mentioned a few of the much better known examples, stating the National Kid Program, begun by the UPA government in 2008, had actually been relaunched as the Beti Bachaao programme.Moreover, Mr Azad stated, the plan for the girl child has not been given the monetary assistance it needs.From 161 districts of
the country, the plan is now running throughout 600 districts. But the matching spending plan allowance has not kept up. From the earlier Rs. 200 crore, it must have increased to Rs. 800 crore to fulfill today commitments. Instead, just Rs. 80 crore has actually been designated to the scheme in the spending plan, stated Mr Azad.Besides, the Jan Awshadi Plan has ended up being the Prime Minister’s Jan Awshadi Scheme, Mr Azad stated. He likewise accused the federal government of said when the UPA government was in power, 24 crore savings account were opened, however given that the BJP came to power, just 7 crore accounts were opened, Mr Azad further said.On the 4th day of the continuous budget session, the federal government came under attack in the upper home. While Lok Sabha was adjourned following homages to BJP lawmaker Hukum Singh, who passed away last week, Rajya Sabha witnessed protests by the Samajwadi Celebration and AAP and had to be adjourned for a while.The opposition
has actually chosen to corner the federal government on various issues in the budget plan session, consisting of joblessness, financial situation, weakening of Constitutional organizations and violence versus caste and neighborhoods. Recently, the leaders of 17 opposition celebrations – consisting of the CPM, which voted to dismiss siding with the Congress – fulfilled Sonia Gandhi in Delhi to talk strategy for the budget plan session.
