BJP president Amit Shah has said that those in Lutyen’s Zone (the seat of power in the centre of the national capital) can’t feel the “achhe din” (good days) ushered in by the Narendra Modi government.
“Those in Lutyen’s zone can’t feel ‘achhe din’. Go and ask those, who have got free LPG gas connections and got rid of smokey chimneys. ‘Achhe din’ have come for those five crore mothers,” Shah told the India TV conclave “Samvad”.
Refuting Congress allegation of government action in the 2008 Malegaon blast case to give “clean chit” to accused associated with the RSS-BJP, the BJP chief said those having doubts are free to move higher courts.
“In our country law is supreme and those having doubts can challenge the verdict in higher courts,” he said.
He also took on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his silence over rape and murder of a Dalit law student in Kerala.
“Rahul Gandhi has time to go JNU and Hyderabad (university) but doesn’t find it go Kerala where a Dalit was raped and murdered, just because the state was governed by his own party,” he claimed.
On liquor ban in Bihar, he said that BJP-ruled states will also try to consider it but “Nitish Kumar should also stop murders in the state”. (IANS)
