Jaipur, Jan 31: Reacting to Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's adverse remarks on oil refinery and metro rail projects in the Assembly, Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot on Jan 30 said the BJP government's 60-day work "yojna" (plan) was mere a showcase and eyewash ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.

"By modulating the language and reshuffling the important points of the previous Gehlot government's flagship schemes, the new BJP regime is trying to loot mere publicity," Pilot told a conference of elected representatives of Panchayat.

"It is most ridiculous that the BJP with narrow thinking putting a big question marks on the garb of economic data on the state's ambitious oil refinery and metro rail projects and considering these mere a financial burden," he said.

He said, "As a matter of fact the refinery would generate not only revenue but also create new jobs in sandy desert districts of Barmer and Jaisalmer, and the metro rail would ease traffic problems."

Pilot claimed that if BJP had all the power it would close down Indian Railways and Indian Airlines by privatising them to big industrialists to safeguard its interests.

"BJP wants to change the civic bodies act so that it could do horse-trading in post election scene of Mayor and Chairman of civic bodies," he said, warning that if this was done the Congress would go on an agitation.

Speaking on the occasion, AICC general secretary Gurudas Kamat said it was not the first time the party got defeated in assembly polls... and in politics such ups and downs do come, even moral gets broken, but Congress's ideology is so strong that it regains its lost faith in public after some time. He also criticised Vasundhara Raje's first term from 2003 to 2008 in which "no progress was made and no new major project came into existence".
