The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today termed the first month of the Narendra Modi Sarkar in office as a “disappointment” and said that BJP Government is heading towards soon to be known as UPA-III.

“The first month in office of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government has been a disappointment and the direction of this government indicates it is heading towards soon to be known as UPA-III. The new government seems to have forgotten its election promises of curbing price-rise and eradicating corruption. The decisions of steep hikes in the railway passenger fares and the increase in sugar import duty, which have led to increase in its prices, have been contrary to what was promised to the people of the country,” AAP said in a statement on Friday.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) also attacked Narendra Modi Sarkar over the Minimum Support Price or MSP on crops to what it had promised in its manifesto.

“Now, the minimum support price (MSP) of cotton has been virtually kept the same by the NDA government (Rs 4050 compared to Rs 4000 last year). The AAP asks the Prime Minister whether he expects that the cotton farmers’ distress and suicides will come down in Vidarbha? Will he be answerable to the families of those farmers who might commit suicide this kharif season?” the party said.

“The AAP reminds the farming community that the BJP in its manifesto expressly promised “Ensuring a minimum of 50% profits over the cost of production.” Prime Minister Modi in his campaign speeches repeatedly announced, “We will fix the MSP (Minimum Support Price) of crops incorporating 50 per cent profit in farmers cost of production including seed, irrigation, manure, labour.” However, this promise has been cynically set aside so soon after the elections. MSP for paddy has been set at Rs 1360 – the increase of Rs 50 from Rs 1310 of last year doesn’t cover even the inflation rate. In maize and bajra, there has been zero increase in MSP whereas in most crops the increase is just Rs.50,” the statement added.

The party also slammed Narendra Modi on being silent on important issues.

“Equally shocking has been the silence of the Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, on multiple issues, which include – allegations of rape against minister of state Nihal Chand Meghwal, the false affidavit submitted by the human resources development minister Smriti Irani about her educational qualifications and the unjustified attack of the minister of state VK Singh on the next army chief. This shows that the 7RCR, which was famous for the mysterious silence of the previous occupant, seems to have succeeded in extending the legacy to the incumbent,” the statement said.

The AAP attacked the Narendra Modi Sarkar for power cuts in the capital.

“The miserable failure of the BJP-led NDA’s central government in handling the power situation in Delhi, which it indirectly controls through the Lieutenant Governor, has shown that the new government does not have a sense of its responsibilities. The long and unending power cuts faced by the people of Delhi during scorching summer heat is a telling commentary on the inefficient functioning of the union power ministry, whose minister has been speaking the language similar to somebody who is an alien to the power situation of the capital,” it said.
