Cong creates 'complications', BJP brings solutions: Ravi Shankar Prasad

SIMDEGA, JHARKHAND: The Union minister said Sunday that the BJP presents solutions while Congress creates complications.

The Ka kaam uljhana Congress, Bhajpa (BJP) ka kaam suljhana (while Congress complicates matters, the BJP solves the problems), Prasad said while addressing an election meeting here.

Jharkhand is also an example. Keeping the emotions of the people of the state, former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee created Jharkhand. When Jharkhand became a separate state, Congress made the state unstable and everyone knows what happened --- of (ex) the prime minister of his associates went to jail, Prasad said, referring to the former prime minister Madhu Koda and some of his former cabinet ministers accused of corruption.

Koda was also convicted in a coal scam case and is on bail.

Prasad, which has Law and Justice portfolios; Communications; Electronics and IT in the Union Cabinet, attacked Rahul Gandhi for his comments on the Rafale agreement, saying that people knew the importance of fighter jets, but for the leader of Congress, it was a problem.

Previously, Congress used to ask the Jawans to act by tying their hand. But the BJP government has told the Jawans not to open fire, but if a bullet is fired from the Pakistani side, then the open silence descends on the other side, Prasad said.

Prasad also accused Congress of keeping the issue of Ram Janmabhoomi pending.

The time has changed. Dual-engine governments (in the Center and in the state) are developing the country and also the state, Prasad said, asking people to vote for the BJP.

The BJP has sent Sadanand Besra of Simdega, who will go to the polls in the second phase on December 7.
