New Delhi, March 07 (KMS): The Indian National Congress has said that the BJP state governments have become nothing but “double washing machine” dispensations where “previous sins” are cleansed.
Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh, in a tweet, today, took a swipe at the BJP and posted a graphic of a yesteryear washing powder advertisement with the caption “Doodh si safedi BJP se aaye, kalankit neta bhi khil khil jaye (BJP brings such milk-like whiteness, even tainted leaders also appear sparkling).
The Congress’ attack came with three governments to be sworn-in in the northeast, including in Meghalaya headed by NPP (National People’s Party) chief Conrad Sangma. The Congress has criticized the BJP for supporting a government led by Sangma in Meghalaya, saying a few days back his dispensation was considered the “most corrupt” by the top BJP leadership and now the party is joining hands with him.
Ramesh said, today the prime minister is going to launch two so-called double engine governments in northeast with a third to follow soon. “BJP state govts have become nothing but DOUBLE WASHING MACHINE Govts where previous sins are cleansed to help the PM bolster his tally and image,”he said.
The Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is on a visit to the northeast for attending the swearing-in ceremonies in Meghalaya, Tripura and Nagaland, and also to hold a closed-door meeting with the Assam cabinet.
National People’s Party (NPP) leader Conrad Sangma was sworn in as chief minister of Meghalaya, today (Tuesday), along with 11 members of his council of ministers. Narendra Modi, Indian Home Minister, Amit Shah, and BJP President, J P Nadda, attended the ceremony.
