Public disillusioned with BJP: Scindia
Bhopal, Apr 10 (UNI) Congress MP Jyotiraditya Scindia said public is disillusioned with the BJP due to Madhya Pradesh government's lack of credibility.
Speaking to mediapersons here last night, he said though the BJP had secured two-thirds majority in December 2003 elections, but now discontentent had grown among public due to the state government's working style, anti-public policies and difference in its words and deeds.
Accusing the government of not providing adequate compensation to the affected farmers of recent hailstorm and unseasonal rainfall, he said the government is not utilising Rs 300 crore received from the natural disaster fund for the purpose.
The Congress leader said in case the government imposed a 'one time tax' to provide relief to affected farmers, he would rise above party politics and welcome the decision.
He said a central team was assessing the loss as per the directions of the Centre. The party will strive to get maximum relief package from the Centre on the basis of the report.
Expressing concern over growing fear of dacoits in the state, Mr Scindia said the government lacked will power and determination to uproot the menace.
He said though the Centre was ready to provide every possible assistance to the state government to eradicate dacoity, the latter has to take initiative.
On rolling out of two 'yatras' by the BJP in the country, he said he would have supported the 'yatras' if it had been on the issues related to employment, power or water.
Refusing to comment on re-induction of RSS's Sanjay Joshi back into the BJP, Mr Scindia however noted that those who talked about high principles in politics shied from adopting them.
