The Bengaluru leg of 'Vikas Parva' rally to celebrate two years of the NDA government at the Centre had a recurring theme by speakers, "the best is yet to come".

Led by Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu, the speakers told the audience at the rally held at a playground in Sheshadripuram that more schemes and programmes were in store.

 As many as 33 Central ministers are holding public meetings in 200 cities in the next few days as a part of the celebrations.

 Union Minister of State for Finance Jayanth Sinha set the tone for the convention by stating that the NDA government had achieved a 'milestone' during the last two years by taking a four-fold approach - giving priority to youth and encouraging startups, introducing comprehensive rural development programmes, building a strong social security platform and initiating poverty alleviation schemes. "But the best is yet to come," he said indicating more new programmes are lined up.  Naidu said,”Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given a scam-free government during the last two years. In the previous Congress regime, there were scams in the morning, afternoon, evening and even for dinner," he said.

 The Union minister said that the Centre had made it a habit to respond immediately to any sort of crisis or problems. "There was confusion with regard to admission to medical colleges and we immediately came up with the NEET ordinance,"  Naidu said.

 He said the NDA government was celebrating two years in power by going to the people while the Congress had just confined itself to holding press conferences, making baseless charges against the ruling dispensation.

BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa said the party would strive to remove the Congress from power in the state. Karnataka is the only major state where the Congress is in power and the time has come for it to go, he said and added that the BJP will form the government after the 2018 Assembly polls by winning 150 of the 224 seats.

He reiterated that agitation against the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the state government will be taken up in all the 28 Assembly segments in Bengaluru from June 12 onwards to highlight  the  ‘failure’ of the ruling dispensation in solving the problems faced by the people.
