BJP hits back at prime minister over his remarks
Friday May 31, 2013 11:13 PM, IANS

Hitting back at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his remark that the opposition was doubly disappointed with the UPA's return to power in 2009 and was obstructionist, the BJP Friday said his government had failed to deliver on promises.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said the prime minister should explain his record in office.

"Leave aside the BJP being disappointed. Tell us what is your record? Why has the prime minister failed to function despite the mandate given to him," Sitharaman said.

She said the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government had made several promises for its first 100 days in office including controlling prices, work on food security bill, tackling corruption and action to bring back black money.

"You will see how people are going to respond to it. The 100 days list remains where it was. Blaming the opposition shows you have no answers to give to the country," she said.

The prime minister Friday slammed the opposition for its "obstructionist" role in parliament and said it had become impatient than ever before following the Congress leading the UPA to a repeat victory in 2009 elections.

The prime minister said the opposition never expected that "we will win the election for UPA-l and were doubly disappointed when we won the election for UPA-II".

He called upon political parties to help the government pass important legislations in parliament.
