Panaji: Blaming the Congress for “making the country poor”, BJP president Rajnath Singh today said that if voted to power, his party would bring back the “golden era the country witnessed during the Atal Bihari Vajpayee regime”.
“The tenure of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee government was golden era in India's history. Vajpayeeji had managed to hold back the inflation during his entire term,” Singh said here while addressing a public rally, also attended by party's Prime Ministerial Candidate Narendra Modi. India's economy has dipped miserably during the UPA tenure, Singh said.
“Congress party should be blamed for making India a poor country during its rule,” he said, adding that during the Vajpayee rule, the country had current account surplus. The BJP chief assured to make India a current account surplus country within six months of coming to power at the Centre after the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
