Ramanathapuram (TN): Tearing into the DMK-Congress combine, BJP president Amit Shah Friday reminded the country about the 2G spectrum and other scams during the previous UPA regime and sought to know how such an alliance can give good governance.

He dared presidents of DMK M.K. Stalin and Congress Rahul Gandhi to give an account of the contribution for Ta-mil Nadu’s developm-ent during the previous UPA regime and said they only have “accou-nts for corruption”.

 

Mr Shah was addressing BJP workers here two days after the DMK and Congress finalised their seat-sharing exercise for the coming Lok Sabha elections under which the Rahul Gandhi-led party has been allocated 10 of the 40 seats including the lone Puducherry.

Referring to the recent Pulwama terror attack, he asserted that the blood shed by the soldiers would not go in vain. He said the NDA government had a “zero tolerance towards terrorism.”

On the focus of development by the Narendra Modi gover-nment towards Tamil Nadu, Mr Shah said he had allocated five times more funding for a string of infrastructure projects in the state, Mr Shah claimed.

 

Referring to the scams such as alleged irregularities in the allocation of 2G spectrum and coal blocks and the August-aWestland copter deal, Shah asked if such an alliance would be able to deliver governance. “All of you tell me, can the DMK-Congress duo who indulged in corruption upto the tune of Rs 12 lakh crore do good to the country? can they good to TN?.. DMK-Congress means corruption. BJP means development,” he maintained.

Mr Shah also attacked the proposed “mahagathbandhan” (grand alliance) of opposition parties and said it was not good for the country at a rally in Palakkad. Mr Shah said the allia-nce was just a “front to grab power” and did not have any ideology or leader.

 

The BJP president was here to review poll preparedness of his party for the coming Lok Sabha elections.” This 2019 election will be an important poll for the party. Because the party will return to power, he said.
