Jaipur: Hitting out at the UPA government, BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi on Sunday said the nation is facing its "biggest crisis since the time of independence".
"In 60 years of my political career, I have not seen such a crisis," Joshi told a gathering of state party workers here.
"We are facing security problems from all four sides of our international borders...Our soldiers are being killed at the borders," he said.
"Rupee is shrinking...The market is going down. Is this not a crisis? The PM should at least reply as an economist," Joshi said.
"Rupee's continuous devaluation against US dollar, rising inflation, unemployment problem, FDI in retail, and attack on India's cultural and moral values have gripped the nation led by UPA and its allies.
"This is an illegal government which has been born out of corruption, made for corrupt people, and nourishing corrupt people in all kinds of scams like oil, rail, sports, and coal," Joshi alleged.
Calling upon BJP party workers to uproot the corrupt governments at both Centre and states, Joshi said, "If you want to save the nation, its border, devalued rupees, FDI's threat, reduce inflation and check prices, get united now and bring the party in the states and at the Centre".
