BJP slams UPA for 'defunct' NDC, ISC

Addressing the two-day conference of the chief ministers of the BJP-ruled and BJP-coalition states here, the party president Nitin Gadkari charged the UPA government of adopting “double standards in central allocations”.

Gadkari  said the BJP states are working for “governance of change”  and “good governance”. He said attack on BJP-governments from the UPA has increased to the proportion of latter’s declining image. Asking chief ministers to focus on “workers” and attempt at “expanding political base”, he said there would be “periodic audit of nature of governance and the organisation” in the BJP-ruled states.

The conference was attended by Chief Ministers B S Yeddyurappa (Karnataka), Narendra Modi (Gujarat), Ramesh Pokhrial (Uttarakhand), Prem Kumar Dhumal (Himachal Pradesh), Arjun Munda (Jharkhand), Raman Singh (Chattisgarh) and deputy-chief minister of Bihar Sushil Modi.

BJP  is a coalition  partner in the Bihar and Punjab governments.  Yeddyurappa was the last to arrive at the venue of the conference. Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan would be arriving here on Tuesday.

“Today 30 per cent of Indian population is governed by the BJP and BJP-led governments while 31 per cent population is under the Congress governance,” said BJP president.
