BJP criticises PM appeal to elect DPA for development
Tiruchirapalli, May 5 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today termed as ''mockery'' Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's appeal to the people to vote for DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliance (DPA) for development and corruption-free Government in his election campaign.
Talking to newspersons here yesterday, BJP All India Secretary Bandaru Dattatreya said the Prime Minister's assurance cannot be fulfilled by the DPA.
Mr Dattatreya said while citing the Prime Minister's recent speech in Andhra Pradesh that development will be hampered if more subsidies like free electricity were given.
He alleged that the Prime Minister had not clarified, whether he is supporting DMK's offer or shunning it aside. It is totally on the reverse gear and contradictory, he added.
Mr Dattatreya termed it as ''blatant lie'' the allegations made by the CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat that there was a secret understanding between BJP and AIADMK, hence the reason for Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa not attacking the BJP, RSS and other communal parties.
He alleged that in the 2001 assembly elections, Communist parties with the help of Ms Jayalalithaa won a few assembly seats, but now they had forged an alliance with DMK.
He said the BJP's ultimate goal is to make itself, a formidable force in the elections.
There is every possibility of a ''hung assembly'' as the people are disillusioned over the announcement of freebies by both the DMK and AIADMK, he alleged.
