Joshi claimed the country had been progressing as a world power under Atal Bihari Vajpayee's rule but the "flawed" policies of the Congress government had brought it on the backfoot.
"The flawed policies of Manmohan government have led to the downslide in the economy of the country. Devaluation of Indian Rupee has become faster," he said. The BJP leader also accused the government of allowing FDI to benefit foreign companies when it should have been assessing the social and economic conditions of India.
Delhi BJP President Vijender Gupta alleged the condition was equally bad in the national capital and people felt unsafe under the Congress rule. "Every citizen feels himself unsafe physically and economically. Congress government has not learnt any lesson from the incident of gangrape. Cases of rape and murder continue to be reported in Delhi," Gupta said.
Mayor of South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) Savita Gupta, Subhash Arya, Vijay Jolly, Pravesh Verma were among the several BJP leaders and councillors present.
