New Delhi, Nov 5: Former Union Minister and Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram today launched a scathing attack at the Bharatiya Janata Party for promising statues and temples ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, after failing to fulfil its earlier election promises of development and jobs.
“At the beginning of five years, the promise is for development, jobs and money in every citizen’s bank account,” the Congress leader said in a tweet.
At the beginning of five years, the promise is for Development, Jobs and Money in every citizen’s bank account. Nothing achieved, at the end of five years, the new promise is for grand Temples, giant Statues and Doles

“Nothing achieved, at the end of five years, the new promise is for grand temples, giant statues and doles,” Chidambaram stated as he reminded Prime Minister Narendra Modi of his earlier promises of development, providing two crore job opportunities annually and bringing back black money and filling up the poor man’s coffer with Rs 15 lakh each.
Chidambaram’s latest dig at the ruling BJP comes at a time when the saffron brigade has been raising the pitch for the construction of a Ram temple in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya.
