Alwar (Rajasthan): Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal on Saturday tore into Congress party and asserted that it lacks both leadership and policy making ability.
Invoking the example of an alleged video from the state of Rajasthan, where the sloganeering of Bharat Mata ki Jai was stopped by a Congress leader only to replace it with slogans hailing Sonia Gandhi and other senior leaders, Goyal said, “The incident uncovered the real face of Congress’s dynastic politics. The Congress has become a directionless party which has no leadership and policy but also lack good intentions. They have become a party gripped with dynasty, communalism and obstructive politics. Owing to these factors it has now reduced to governing two states- Mizoram and Punjab and one Union Territory- Pondicherry. However, in these elections, they will also lose Mizoram.”
He further stressed and said that the BJP government both in Centre and the state have meticulously worked in coordination to develop Rajasthan.
He said, “As the minister for the railway, I take the example of the railways and want to say that the way in which for last 4.5 year, Rajasthan has developed at a rapid pace is similar to a double engine rail which offers more safety and increases the speed. This has become possible because of the Central government and state government both belonging to the BJP.”
Blaming Congress for indulging in divisive politics, Goyal said, “The kind of politics that Congress is indulging into, it has become necessary that Bharatiya Janata Party government is formed with the motto of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’.”
The Union Minister further exuded confidence and said that he sure of the fact that the BJP would again form the government in Rajasthan under the leadership of Vasundhara Raje.
The Assembly elections in the state will take place in a single phase for all 200 seats on December 7 while the counting of votes will take place on December 11.
