Hyderabad, Oct 12 (UNI) Senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu today alleged that the UPA Government at the Centre was throwing the country into crisis after crisis due to its ''anti-people'' policies.
Addressing a press conference here, he alleged that after the UPA came to power, the country had faced several crises, including food scarcity, price rise, inflation, suicides by farmers and weavers, terror strikes and fertiliser shortage.
Alleging that the UPA Government had sent wrong signals to terrorists by ''not taking any action'' against them, he said ''terrorists were finding India as a safe haven for carrying out their missions, as the UPA Government was pursuing an appeasement policy, eyeing the vote bank.'' During the previous NDA regime, the country had buffer food stocks and sufficient foreign exchange reserves with low inflation and was in a position to export foodgrains to other countries.
Now, the country had ''low foreign exchange reserves, high inflation and large-scale import of foodgrains in addition to financial crisis.'' Stating that the theme of the party's campaign for the coming elections would be 'Save India,' he claimed that the UPA would be defeated as the people wanted the BJP to bounce back to power to save the country.
Senior leader L K Advani would visit Hyderabad as part of the nation-wide 'Vijay Sankalpa Yatra' on November six, he added.
