Common man badly let down by Congress, says AdvaniFebruary 16th, 2009 - 7:59 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 16 (ANI): The Leader of opposition, L K Advani, on Monday, said that the Congress party has failed in its attempts to support the common man.
“At the end of this Government’’s five-year tenure there are people in the top financial brackets who may be happy that they have become multi-millionaires or billionaires, but the Aam Admi (common man) feels badly let down.” said Advani.
The Bharatiya Janata Party leader said that the middle class household budget has gone haywire due to the soaring prices of essential commodities, particularly foodstuffs.
He also accused the UPA government of mismanagement in handling growing unemployment in the country.
Referring to External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee’’s statement that the farmers were the real heroes of India’’s success story who ensured food security for the nation, Advani said, ” Farmers provided the nation with food security, and Government has miserably failed to provide even security of life to these real heroes.”
Describing Monday’’s budget presentation as the “farewell budget” of the Congress, Advani said that the people of the nation have enough justification to bid farewell to the current ruling party in the coming general elections. (ANI)
