MeraNews Network, Gandhinagar: Terming the results of the assembly elections of five states as the trailer before the actual film that is the 2019 General Elections, former Gujarat chief minister Shankersinh Vaghela made sharp criticism about the Bharatiya Janata Party’s agenda saying that rocks might float on water with Ram’s name, but BJP won’t. Crediting the citizens’ mandate of smashing the saffron party’s arrogance, Vaghela added that the people have junked the BJP who in its egotistical power-run thought it could purchase the mandate it wants using the money.
Speaking to journalists at his residence he also commented about RBI (Reserve Bank of India) Governor Urjit Patel’s resignation on Monday, the senior politician said it was a step taken in the right direction and that the BJP government should not be given three lakh crore rupees to blow it away on election campaigning. He said that the government executed demonetisation and implemented the goods and services tax without doing any homework, which led to the drop in GDP and trade and gave rise to unemployment.
“The citizens, by not voting for the BJP, have shown the party a trailer before the movie that is the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, and have restored trust in the fact that the people can bring in change whenever they wish to. The BJP, in its arrogance, made tall promises in their speeches, but never cared to fulfill them,” Vaghela further added.
Vaghela also said that the attempts to announce the results of polls late is only going to strengthen the chances of the opposition to form a grand alliance and cited the example of the Manmohan Singh government which was formed on the basis of alliances.
