India needs a leadership of proven ability: Arun Jaitley

New Delhi, Aug. 24 (ANI): Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley, on Saturday criticized the Congress-led UPA Government, and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will give the country a new leadership that will not let the people down.

"Today, the country needs a leadership of proven ability and people are looking at us. I am confident that, as a nationalist organisation, it is our responsibility not only to give leadership to the country but also it is also responsibility not to let the country down," Jaitley said, addressing a seminar titled 'India 2020 - Challenges Ahead', which was organized by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Jaitley also accused the UPA Government of being arrogant and misusing the investigating agencies for its own political interests.

"The government is responsible for breakdown of relationship between the opposition and the government because of two reasons because of arrogance of power and misuse of the investigating agencies by the government," Jaitley added.

The ruling UPA government has been severely criticized by the opposition parties after several scams, including the Coal scam, emerged.

Additionally, the Centre's neo-liberal economic policies have been under severe scrutiny after the rupee continuous to topple to historical lows in the past week. (ANI)
