NEW DELHI: The Congress has decided to sharpen its attack on the BJP-led NDA Government for its alleged “U-turns” and “hijacking” of the former UPA Government’s programmes.

After cornering the government in Parliament on the black money issue, the Congress on Monday will  bring out a 33-page booklet highlighting over two dozen “U-turns” by the NDA Government.

The booklet has been titled ‘6 mahine paar, U-turn Sarkar’ (six months over, U-turn government), in a apparent play of words to target the BJP’s pre-poll slogan of aabki baar, Modi Sarkar (This time, Modi Government). According to the Congress, the BJP had gone back on its poll promise of bringing back black money stashed abroad.

It also gone back  even on issues like handling of border situation with China and Pakistan, direct cash transfer, Aadhar,  key legislations like FDI in insurance and GST among others.

When the UPA was in power, the BJP had protested against the UPA government’s moves. And  after coming to power, it is bringing the same legislations, the Congress alleged.

The Congress said it would also raise these issues in Parliament. The BJP had earlier opposed to signing of the Indo-US nuclear deal by the UPA-I Government in 2008, but according to latest report it was trying to unshackle the sector. Party general secretary and communication department chairman Ajay Maken  also published a blog in which he listed the statements of the senior BJP leaders opposing UPA schemes, which were now supporting the government.

“After having questioned the very validity and stake of any state government in Aadhaar, the Modi Government is now talking about it as a tool that will help the Finance Minister reduce subsidy burden by `2,000 crore,” he said, and sought to bring out the contradiction of this with the “BJP stand as Opposition to Aadhar and financial inclusion”.
