Agartala: CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury today stated that the BJP has betrayed the people during its three years in power at the Centre and has been entirely unsuccessful in fulfilling its electoral promises.
The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leader also wondered what all the celebrations planned by the BJP-led central government on completion of its three years in power were about, and added that it was rather a “celebration of failure and betrayal”.
“They (BJP) have failed to fulfil every single promise they made to the people before the 2014 general elections,” he told the media here. The CPI-M leader said the Bharatiya Janata Party had promised to generate two crore new jobs every year.
“No new jobs have, however, been provided; (on the other hand) thousands of people are losing their existing jobs,” he said. He said the country’s information technology sector is expected to lose one lakh jobs this year.
“On the industrial front, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced ‘Make in India’, ‘Startup India’, ‘Digital India’ and many more things. But no significant investment has been made in the last three years,” Yechury said.
