The BJP has given the most hardworking government we have seen post-independence. PM Modi believes in zero tolerance on corruption and his focus is on core social issues. His achievements can be clearly seen as 1 crore people have already surrendered their LPG subsidy, and people have benefited from Jan Dhan Yojana and Mudra Banking. Several schemes launched by the Modi government like Beti Bachao, Pension Plan and Insurance Scheme are working great for the common man. Make In India is drawing enormous investments from overseas and the ease of doing business is helping entrepreneurs. Modi's achievement and vision is phenomenal and it is important for the Congress to realize that the BJP is not reinventing strategy but reinventing policy.


Shaina NC BJP spokesperson


The Modi government has been a monumental disaster in all aspects in managing the aspirations of a young India. In particular, they have been found wanting on creating jobs. They promised 2 crore jobs per year but they have provided only 1.35 lakh jobs, which is less than one percent of what is needed. In the past two years, farmer suicides have risen, agricultural growth has been negative, food inflation is rising, exports are down 16 months in a row, stalled projects are growing and bank NPA are rising. It is a cocktail of utter collapse.
