RANCHI: BJP President Amit Shah today said the party has succeeded in removing politics of casteism, appeasement and family fiefdom and put the country on the path of speedy development.

The opposition could not accuse Modi government of any corruption charges in the last three years and the country is on the fast track of transformation, Shah told a press conference here.

Shah said that the previous UPA governemnt was bogged down with an alleged Rs 12 lakh crore scam and had suffered from policy paralysis. It was also unable to take any decision on policy matters, he added.

"Now in place of that (policy paralysis), Narendra Modi has provided a decisive government," Shah said.

He said that people had been apprehensive as to what would happen to the country, but in the three years of Modi government the people have faith that India is moving forward on the right path.

"A drastic change has happened in the three years.

Every social and economic indicators showed it. Prices are at the bottom of the list. India’s economy is one of the fastest growing economy in the world," he said.

Recalling Modi’s promises during the 2014 Lok Sabha election campaign to improve the condition of the poor, the dalits, backwards, villages, women and the youth, Shah said the government in the three years has taken several steps to uplift all the sections.

The Modi government had distributed LPG connections to the 2.8 crore BPL families of rural areas, he said, adding it was committed to electrify all the villages in the country by May 26, 2018.

Shah also pointed out that 4.5 crore toilets were constructed in the country in the last three years and under the Mudra Yozana loans could be taken from Rs 10,000 to Rs 10 lakh without any guarantor.

GST has become practical now, giving one country one tax, he said.

On security matters, he said that the country had shown that it could go to any extent and fight for its prestige like the way it does and cited the surgical strikes as an example.

He said a Special Investigation Team(SIT) was set up to unearth black money, while demonetisation and strict laws for benami property were made during the three years.

He said the BJP also solved the one-rank onepension issue which was pending for 50 years.
