Nitin Gadkari: ‘Acche din’ was Manmohan Singh’s quote; now ‘gale ki haddi’ for BJP

Mumbai, September 14: Crediting BJP’s sledgehammer slogan “Achhe din” to Dr. Manmohan Singh, Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday said that the phrase has become a “millstone” around the NDA government’s neck, particularly in a country like India that is ‘an ocean of dissatisfied souls.’

‘Acche Din’ was a catch phrase used extensively by BJP in its election campaign of 2014 throughout the nation. It was a promise PM Modi had made to the nation before the elections. Defying the root of the electoral campaign is like defying BJP’s basic ideology on which voter chose the party over the opposition parties.

He said: It is a bone stuck in our throat. Our country is such an ocean of dissatisfied souls that Acche Din never come…Those who have cycles want scooters, and those who have scooters want cars. It is not wrong, but the wealthy are dissatisfied too.

What comes as a surprise to most is the fact revealed by Gadkari, that ex prime minister Manmohan Singh had used the “achhe din” phrase for the first time and PM Modi had “picked it” from Dr Singh’s speech.

As Gadkari said, Dr Singh promised Acche Din in the future in response to questions from NRIs in New Delhi. “Then Modi-ji said it somewhere and it got stuck to us. Still, I believe that Acche Din means people have good expectations,” he added.

BJP has frequently been trolled on social media about “achhe din” whenever a lapse in working of the government body or government officials, comes in light. Recently, comedian Kapil Sharma too tweeted and questioned PMO about “achhe din” as he highlighted how an official from BMC asked for bribe.

Manish-Tewari

New Delhi, Aug 2 : Amid a debate within the Congress about its performance during 10 years of UPA rule over Rajya Sabha members close to Rahul Gandhi have asked for introspection, former Union minister Manish Tewari on Sunday again defended interim party chief Sonia Gandhi and ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and attacked the BJP and termed it as “Shakuni”.

Tewari who is in his constituency of Anandpur Sahib said in a tweet, “Unfortunately UPA could not surmount sinister conspiracies against it for it was/is led by two genteel & decent souls SG & MMS in a world where Shakunis populate/d the adversary space.”

When IANS contacted Tewari about his “Shakuni” comment he said BJP led the sinister campaign against the then UPA government.

Tewari hinted that the sinister campaign was 2G and coal block allocation issue in which BJP alleged corruption citing CAG reports, which led to the defeat of UPA in 2014 polls.

Tewari said that achievement of the UPA government can be seen in the PMO archives and the government has done a lot in RTI, RTE, MNREGA, Food Security and other developmental work.

The spat within the Congress was sparked after a meeting of Rajya Sabha MPs chaired by Sonia Gandhi where Rajiv Satav raised the issue of intersection which was countered by the veterans, sources said.

Even as the veterans against Team Rahul war within the Congress is out in the open, former Union minister Shashi Tharoor, Tewari and Milind Deora, rallied behind Manmohan Singh, saying the UPA’s transformative 10 years were distorted and traduced by a motivated and malicious narrative.

Anand Sharma, Tharoor, Tewari and former Mumbai Congress chief Deora – all ministers in Singh’s Cabinet at one point – defended the former Prime Minister, tagging criticism of him as “ill-informed” and part of a “motivated and malicious narrative”.
