Sonia Maino’s Intolerance and Dictatorial Tendencies

via BJP-Press Release published on October 9, 2007

Bharatiya Janata Party condemns the statement of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi calling those who oppose the N-Deal and present alignment of Setu Samundaram Project as enemies of development and peace. It is not only arrogant but smacks of intolerance and dictatorial tendencies. This is precisely the Congress character to call names to those, who oppose their policies, as the forces opposing the country’s progress. Actually, it is the Congress, which has halted the progress of the country by slowing down on various development initiatives of NDA like North-South and East-West corridor and River Linking Project.

Bharatiya Janata Party charges Congress of playing strategic subservience to US foreign policy by rushing through the N-Deal and doing so with collateral purpose.

Nation has not approved the proposed Deal. The majority in Parliament is opposing this Deal and government has not addressed any of the concerns raised by opposition parties. If the Deal is about Energy Security the govt. must reveal the costs involved.

 35,000 MW of Electricity over the period of 30 yrs at the investment of 50 $b (2 Lack Crore of Rs.) is not at all in the interest of the country. Even if Suhansiri project in Arunachal is completed it can generate 35,000 MW of hydel Power in next 3 years at much lower cost. Congress must ask the people whether they approve N-Power @ Rs. 15 per unit or hydro Power at Rs. 4 per unit.

Govt. must also explain why they are not reaching out to Nepal on channelising perennial water resources for power generation? Congress must also answer why the govt. is not operationalising Fast Breeder Reactor Programme, which can open up possibilities of self-sufficiency.

As far as Setu Samundaram Project is concerned blame squarely lies with Congress, which has not only hurt the religious sentiments of the people but is bent upon blowing up the Ram Setu. BJP demands that govt. should unequivocally declare that it would complete the project with other alignment and not by cutting through Ram Setu.
