Amit Shah slams Congress in his maiden speech in Rajya Sabha

BJP President Amit Shah today made his debut speech in the Rajya Sabha. He hailed the current NDA government’s successes in creating Jan Dhan accounts and improving the living standards of the people of India through electrification, digitisation and development of infrastructure.

He also applauded the government’s direct benefit transfer and ‘Khelo India’ initiatives. He spoke about his government’s commitment to the welfare of farmers and praised the central government for effective handling of Kashmir issue.

The BJP President slammed Congress for its failure to address the people’s problems in all the years that it remained in power. He said that he accepts unemployment is a problem in a country but Congress should remember that we are facing this problem even after decades of Congress rule.

He tore into the recent remarks of ex-finance minister P. Chidambaram where he had compared pakoda sellers to beggars. Amit Shah went ahead to add that it is better to be a pakoda seller than becoming a beggar. He said that it was the shameful mentality of Congress to mock the countless young men who are working hard to become self-employed by starting small businesses.

He also praised the GST reform and said once the initial troubles are addressed it will be immensely beneficial to the country’s economy. He attacked Rahul Gandhi’s jibe on GST as ‘Gabbar Singh Tax’ and said how can a legal economic reform be compared to a dacoit in a Bollywood film.

He went on to remark that public sentiment is expressed best by electoral mandates and it is because of the Indian people’s satisfaction with the central government that after forming the government in the centre in 2014, BJP has gone ahead to win several state assembly elections with an overwhelming majority. He added that the BJP wants to uproot 3 major problems in the democratic system of the country. Those are dynasty politics, casteism and appeasement, and PM Modi has ensured that these 3 problems are uprooted.

In an attack to the Congress party’s tradition of dynasty politics, he added that for 55 years a single family had ruled over the country and still 60% of the people did not have bank accounts. He assured that the Modi government doing its best for the upliftment of the poor and downtrodden.

Amit Shah also mocked the Congress for its ‘moral victory‘ propaganda after losing Gujrat elections. He told that even after ruling for 22 years the BJP still can come to power for another 5 years and if Congress is calling it a moral victory, he can not do anything about it. His remarks caused loud applause and laughter in the house.
