It will be BJP or Congress-led government: Advani

Bharatiya Janata Party Uluberia (West Bengal), April 29 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party prime ministerial candidate L.K. Advani Wednesday said Left parties couldn’t be more mistaken if they believe that the Third Front will ever come to power.
“If communist parties think the Third Front will come to power, then they are wrong. If a government is formed, it will always either be the BJP-led or Congress-led,” Advani said at an election rally here.

Slamming the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government, Advani said they have failed to curb terrorism in the country.

“Threat from the Taliban is just 20 km away from the Indian border but this government is just not capable of fighting terror. There have been so many terrorist attacks in the country over the last five years and hardly any terrorist has been caught,” he said.

Highlighting the BJP’s IT vision, Advani further said: “People today don’t have employment in villages because of which they come to the cities. In the cities too, there are no jobs, and therefore they settle down in slums.”

“With our IT vision, we are going to provide computer education in all villages. According to the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, every boy and girl should get education, but this is not enough. Computer education is necessary and we will ensure that everyone gets it, for IT enabled jobs,” he added.

He said the Left Front government in West Bengal was anti-development. “If Tata wanted to get the Nano here, it was good. However the interest of the farmer had to be kept in mind.”
