Finance Minister Arun Jaitley slams opposition parties for spreading and raising fake issues in his latest Agenda 2019 blog post series.
Bharatiya Janata Party leader lashed out at the parties for running a campaign of fake issues, said from Rafale, Balakot, Judge Loya’s death, Bank loan waiver, JNU issues, EVM, GST, demonetisation or Nirav Modi & Mallya, or be it special status for Andhra Pradesh, or the issues of economy, every time fakery & manufactured issues of opposition fell apart.
He said that voters always punish non-performers and vote back those who deliver
Attacking opposition leaders, Jaitley said they just want to remove one man, “The NDA govt. is led by a leader with whom the comfort level of the voter is high. The Opposition is in a state of panic. It’s single point programme is a negative one - ‘remove one man’. The level of their ambition is limited,” he said
He said entire opposition rely just on fake and manufactured issues
“Rahul Gandhi has led not only his party but the entire Opposition to rely on fake and manufactured issues. They raise fake issues, create an echo effect and then believe their falsehood to be true. It’s time that they come out of the cocoon of falsehood or perish there,” he said
Jaitley said Indian voters have potential to distinguish between truth and falsehood, added that people are capable to punish those who resort to falsehood
Arun Jaitley is also chairman of BJP Publicity committee for the elections said, “It is a fair tribute to the performance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Government that Opposition, after 5 years, has no real issue against the Government. The Government is contesting on a pro-incumbency platform built on its performance & Opposition is in a state of panic.”
“If fake issues are taken out of Rahul Gandhi’s speech, nothing will perhaps be left. The Opposition underestimates the wisdom of the electorate. I am confident that the electorate will also underestimate India’s Opposition parties and show them their place,” he added.
He said, It is unfortunate that opposition parties see opportunity in fake issues forgetting ‘Satyamev Jayate’. Truth holds & Falsehood falls apart. The Overconfidence of opposition leaders undermining electorates’ wisdom will not go unpunished in the 2019 elections.
