Modi’ll defeat arithmetic of ‘Nawabs of Negativity’: Jaitley



arun jaitley

Mumbai, Jan 17 (IANS) Calling chieftains of rival political parties as “Nawabs of Negativity”, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday said the grand alliance of opposition parties has multiple claimants and that NDA’s chemistry will succeed over their arithmetic.

“The Nawabs of Negativity may come together but they are not going to hold together and carry much credibility as far as people are concerned,” Jaitley said at “India Business Leader Awards 2018” here via video link from New York where he has gone for medical check-up.

Jaitley said the opposition’s arithmetic is not based on any ideological similarity, economic programme, common vision to bring the country together or a common leader, instead, it is based on only one premise which is negative in character and that is wanting one man out.

Alleging that the opposition has multiple claimants for the position of Prime Minister, he said India is a highly aspirational, politically conscious society and such societies never opt for a suicidal cause. “They opt for a tried and tested established leadership,” he said.

“The kind of individuals who have almost staked their claims … the claimant from Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Telangana and from the privileged family of Delhi. I think if you look at it, the situation looks fairly scary,” the Minister said.

He said that on all three counts of leadership, performance and narrative that will decide the fate of next election, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) scores much higher. Falsehood can never constitute a permanent narrative against leadership, decisiveness, performance and future potential, he said.

“I have not the least doubt in my mind that in a battle between chemistry and arithmetic, politics is something where chemistry always succeeds. It happened in 2014, it has happened elsewhere in the world and I am quite certain it’s going to happen in India, too,” Jaitley said.

Further, citing achievements of the last five years, he said the Modi government was instrumental in restoring the decision-making process of Indian economy and was able to change the tag from policy paralysis and “fragile five” to a bright spot in the global economy.

“I think the biggest achievement has been that while we have gone ahead with a large number of difficult economic reforms and maintained a steady rate of growth, we have also been able to use the advantages of those additional revenues we got for the people’s welfare.”

Lucknow/New Delhi, July 10 : The opposition parties on Friday slammed the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter of dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey, while being brought back to the state from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain.

Former Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav took to twitter and wrote, “Actually. his car has not overturned, but the government has been saved from turning over the secret.”

His remarks came soon after Dubey died on Friday morning after being critically injured in an alleged shootout with the STF officials on Friday morning near Kanpur. The gangster was shot when he reportedly tried to flee, following a road accident in which the vehicle he was travelling in overturned near Kanpur. Dubey was taken to the emergency ward of the Hallett Hospital. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kanpur Dinesh Kumar said that the doctors have confirmed the death of Vikas Dubey.

Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) leader Jayant Chaudhary also slammed the BJP government over the “encounter rule” in the state and urged all the judges to resign. “After Vikas Dubey”s encounter, all the judges of the country should resign. There is no need of court in BJP”s encounter rule,” Chaudhary said in a series of tweets. “All this drama has been created to save the real culprits of killing eight policemen,” the RLD leader said in another tweet.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Kumar Jha also criticised the Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter saying the “black truth” of the entire “syndicate” has also been “encountered” along with Dubey. “If the news of the Vikas Dubey death in the encounter is true, then accept that the black truth of the entire syndicate has also been encountered. The system has saved itself from being naked. How the story is so simple from yesterday”s visuals of Mahakal temple to the story till today morning. Proceed with this as the final truth (sic),” Jha tweeted.

According to reports, as the convoy bringing Dubey from Madhya Pradesh”s Ujjain reached the Bhauti area under the Barra police circle in Kanpur on Friday morning, the vehicle in which Vikas was seated, overturned after skidding on the road due to heavy rain.

Dubey, along with two other police personnel in the vehicle, was injured in the accident. As soon as the gangster was taken out of the vehicle, he allegedly snatched a pistol from the STF team and tried to fire at the police. He was fatally injured in retaliatory firing. Dubey received a bullet injury in the chest which proved fatal. Five members of the Dubey gang have been killed in police encounters over the past seven days.
