Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party Criticize Nine Years of Modi Government

The Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party, two prominent political entities, have refrained from praising the Modi government as it completes nine years in office. While the Samajwadi Party expresses strong criticism, the Bahujan Samaj Party adopts a somewhat milder approach in conveying their views.

Abdul Hafiz Gandhi, spokesperson for the Samajwadi Party, asserts, "These nine years have been marked by event management rather than tangible achievements. The Modi government has faced failures on multiple fronts. None of the projects promised in 2014 have been completed. The vision of establishing 100 smart cities remains unfulfilled, and the 'Make in India' initiative has not taken off."

Gandhi continues, "There is no longer any mention of doubling the farmers' income, a promise made by the central government for 2022. Additionally, there has been a lack of action against the politics of hatred. The government's performance in generating employment has been abysmal. It seems that the Modi government's primary focus lies in winning elections. It has been a government that prioritizes maximum headline management but offers minimal governance."

Conversely, the Bahujan Samaj Party places the blame on the Modi government for neglecting the welfare of Dalits and marginalized sections of society. They perceive the government's efforts as mere lip service designed to garner votes.

A representative from the BSP, when questioned, states, "The central government has taken no significant measures for the benefit of Dalits and instead resorts to religious polarization as a means to secure votes. However, the Samajwadi Party cannot evade responsibility as they have not genuinely addressed the concerns of Dalits either."

The BSP representative further remarks, "Even the Congress has deceived us over the decades. The only party that genuinely cares for and works towards the welfare of Dalits is the BSP, a fact that we have consistently proven."

The critical stance of the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party reflects their dissatisfaction with the performance of the Modi government over the past nine years. While the Samajwadi Party highlights failures in various areas, the BSP specifically focuses on the lack of attention given to Dalits and marginalized communities. These perspectives shed light on the differing viewpoints within the political landscape regarding the Modi government's track record.
