Vijayawada, Feb 20 (UNI) The BJP would win power at the Centre in the coming elections, Former party President M Venkaiah Naidu today said.
Addressing the valedictory session of the two-day Andhra Pradesh BJP State Council and Executive Meeting, he said after the 2004 elections, the people compared the developmental activities during the four-year Congress rule with the NDA reign in the country ''and now, were turning to BJP's policies.'' After the 2004 general elections, the BJP and its allies won five out of seven States in Assembly elections with the Congress losing in six States.
The BJP also won the prestigious Delhi and Mumbai Corporation elections by defeating the Congress. It also won the Gujarat polls.
Mr Naidu said the NDA Government undertook several developmental works and welfare schemes for the downtrodden and also provided several facilities to the Dalits.
He said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh lacked the capacity to run the government independently.
The Congress was mired in corruption and there was no faith in its leadership, he alleged.
Earlier, Dr Singh implemented several reforms under the P V Narasimha Rao Government as he was given the freedom. But 'now he lacked the individuality.' The BJP leader also criticised the UPA Government for its anti-people, farmer and labour policies and added ''the Left had also lost its moralitiy.'' Mr Naidu alleged the Congress was trying to postpone Assembly elections in Karnataka due to fear of defeat.
He predicted the country would witness many changes in the near future with the people looking up to BJP rule at the Centre under the ''dynamic leadership'' of Mr L K Advani.
