Congress stands for defame, disturb, disrupt: Union Urban Development Min

These parties were at the game earlier also like exploiting the Dadri incident during Uttar Pradesh elections, a conversion issue during Jharkhand polls, he said, adding that the Congress was frustrated as Prime Minister Narendra Modi was becoming a tall leader in the world. The NDA government inherited the farm sector distress, just like the Maoists and Kashmir problems as a "virasat" (legacy) from the Congress, he said.

He said the central government was focusing on 3Ds - decisiveness, dynamism, and development.

In fact, the agriculture sector growth in Madhya Pradesh was 20 per cent as against national average of four per cent, which was highest among the states in India, even not recorded in other BJP-ruled states, he said.

"When the NDA came to power in 2014, the economy of the country was in a bad shape". Even the Industrialist Vijaya Mallya who defaulted on loan payment had taken advance loan during UPA period. The BJP leader pointed out that in 1998, in the Betul area of Madhya Pradesh, 24 farmers had been gunned down in a police firing that had been ordered by the then Chief Minister Digvijay Singh, a member of the Congress party.

The Union minister was here to attend a "Sabka Saath Sabka Bikas" programme. This has also made DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer) a success story and the government subsidies are reaching the accounts of beneficiaries in a targeted way now, he said.

He further informed that around 4 crore toilets have been constructed under the Under the Swachh Bharat Abhijan and more than 7 crore people have been benefitted by the Mudra scheme.

Asked whether they will consult BJD president Naveen Patnaik, Naidu said that they would like to discuss the matter with all the opposition parties including BJD.

The NDA government is strongly in favour of cooperative federalism, the Centre and the states should work together to raise the socio-economic standards of vulnerable sections of the society, he said. "The three years of the Modi government has been the era of destruction (Teen Saal, Vinash Kaal)".

"We follow only one D of development, but Congress believes in 3Ds (defame, disturb and disrupt)".
