Congress Suffering Because of Dynasty Issues Says FM Arun Jaitley

Attacking the Congress over “dynastic politics”, Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday (May 22) said that when “attraction” for a “family” ends, the party has to pay for it. “When people’s attraction for a family ends, the party has to pay a price for it,” Jaitley said during his address to BJP workers in Kanpur. The BJP leader said that the Congress acting as an “obstructionist opposition” in Parliament hasn’t helped the party’s cause much. “The Congress party is working as an obstructionist opposition, which has further distanced people from it and their support base is getting reduced,” Jaitley claimed. “They go to places where anti-national slogans are raised and they try to do politics there. Can such actions attract people towards the party?” he asked, in an apparent reference to the JNU incident. Jaitley claimed that during UPA rule there was rise in corruption cases as the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did not have much say in the decision-making. “UPA gave this nation a prime minister for 10 years but did not give him any rights. As a result, the government was never in a position to take decisions and corruption grew,” he said. Jaitley credited the Narendra Modi-led NDA government with changing the national political discourse from “corruption towards development”. “Earlier, corruption was a common issue but in the last two years, Prime Minister Modi has erased the word corruption from India’s dictionary,” Jaitley said.
