Government indecision effecting economy: BJP

February 29th, 2012 - 8:17 pm ICT by IANS  

Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, Feb 29 (IANS) Hitting out at the government for the country’s economic problems, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Wednesday said it would raise the issue of the United Progressive Alliance’s (UPA) “policy paralysis” in the upcoming budget session of parliament.

In a statement issued here, BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar also asked the government to come out with a clear roadmap for economic recovery.

“Policy paralysis and complete failure of UPA in managing the economy are hurting the already sluggish growth story of India. People will wonder whether it is the same Manmohan Singh who was credited for opening up of economy in 1991,” Javadekar said.

“The third quarter GDP growth at 6.1 percent is bad news. The growth rate is declining consistently over last one year and government’s expectation for 7.5 percent growth in 2012-13 seems distant,” he said.

“BJP will raise all these critical issues in the ensuing Budget session. But at this stage the government should come out with a clear road map for the robust recovery of the economy,” he added.

The budget session of parliament begins March 12 and the general budget will be presented on March 16.
