New Delhi: As opposition attacked it over Amit Shah's reported comment that it will take 25 years for the promised ‘achhe din' to come, the BJP today termed the report as “baseless” and said the party president had stated that it will take these many years to restore India its “ancient glory”.
“Shah said the BJP government had curbed corruption and brought down inflation.It is working to end corruption and create many jobs in five years. But the dream of making India ‘Vishwa guru (world leader) will take 25 years to realise,” BJP secretary and media cell in-charge Shrikant Sharma said.
A media report today quoted Shah as having told party leaders and workers at a meet in Bhopal yesterday that the good days promised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take 25 years to come.
Latching onto it, Congress leader Digvijay Shah took a dig at Shah, saying his good days had arrived and people can forget about theirs.
