Nagla Chandrabhan (Mathura): Marking the first anniversary of the NDA government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today presented a report card for one year which he asserted has been free of corruption and scams but has brought "bure din" (bad days) for those who have "robbed" the country in their 60 years of rule.
Attacking the previous UPA government, Modi said one more year to that government would have "sunk" the country and that now there were no stories of a scam involving "son-in-law or a son" of a political leader happening.
"Some people are very troubled these days. Their trouble is with the fact that 'achche din' has come to all people but 'bure din' for them. Those whose 'bure din' have come, they are troubled. They are shouting. Because for 60 years, in Delhi's political corridors, only their voice was heard and the country was run as they wished...
"I did not give guarantee of 'achche din' for those who looted the nation for years. We will run the country in a way that there will be more 'bure din' for them and their troubles will increase. Your money can't be looted by anyone," the Prime Minister said at a public rally here at the birth place of Deen Dayal Upadhyay, a BJP ideologue.
BJP has planned nearly 200 public rallies by its main leaders across to mark the first year of the NDA government.
However, Modi, who made a very pro-farmer and pro-poor pitch during his hour-long speech, did not mention the contentious land acquisition bill, on which his government is facing tough opposition even from NDA allies.
Noting that thoughts of three leaders "shaped us in the last several years - those of Mahatma Gandhi ji, Lohia ji and Deendayal ji", the Prime Minister said he therefore picked the "Deen Dyal Dham" to share the one year achievements of his government.
