ANI Photo | “Filled with corruption”: BJP chief JP Nadda hits out at Grand Alliance in Bihar

BJP chief JP Nadda on Thursday hit out at the Grand Alliance in Bihar, accusing their leadership of “corruption” and “appeasement politics”.
“The leadership here (in Bihar) is filled with corruption…They are busy with appeasement politics… It is time to say goodbye to such governments, and it is time to bring the BJP (government to power),” he said.
The remarks were made at a gathering on the occasion of the 100th birth anniversary of BJP leader Kailashpati Mishra in Patna, Bihar.
Pointing out that previous Congress governments at the Centre could not pass the Women’s Reservation Bill, BJP Chief JP Nadda underscored that the Bill which subsequently became an act was passed in the Parliament in three days under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Hitting at the previous Congress-led UPA regime, Nadda said that the Bill was “lying” in Parliament and “no one paid any attention to it”.
“In UPA government, the Women’s Reservation Bill was lying in Parliament…No one gave attention to it…Prime Minister Modi passed the bill in three days…,” he said.
The landmark women’s reservation Bill, which seeks to provide 33 per cent reservation to women in the Lok Sabha and state Assemblies, has now become a law after receiving the assent of President Droupadi Murmu.
While remembering Kailashpati, the BJP functionary said,” Kailashpati Mishra was an institution in himself who worked to bring forward all the sections of society”.
“Taking inspiration from his life, we will take the party with new power, not only in Bihar..but across the country”.
Nadda further recalled that Mishra took part in the “Quit India Movement” during the movement for the struggle for freedom.
Though the Women’s Reservation Bill has been passed in both houses of parliament, the implementation of its provisions will come into place after the next census and a delimitation based on the data of the census.
This relatively long time frame caused criticism from the Opposition who wanted the Bill’s implementation sooner.
The ‘Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam’ was the first Bill passed by Lok Sabha after it shifted to the new Parliament building.
On September 21, the Parliament passed the historic draft legislation, with the Rajya Sabha clearing it unanimously.
A total of 214 members in the Upper House, voted in support of the Bill and none voted against it. The members welcomed the passing of the Bill by thumping their desks
