BJP Agrees With Prez's Remarks on Populist Anarchism

BJP President Rajnath Singh today welcomed President Pranab Mukherjee’s remarks on the need for a stable government at the Centre post the 2014 general elections and agreed with his views that populist anarchy cannot be a substitute for governance.

Unfurling the national flag at the BJP headquarters on the occasion of the Republic Day, Singh said, "The President's speech was good. I support his view that the country needs a stable government.

"I also welcome the President's remarks on the issue of anarchist politics."

The reference was to Delhi Chief Minister and AAP Convenor Arvind Kejriwal's recent street agitation to get some cops suspended.

Reflecting on the journey of the republic over the past 65 years, the BJP President said the country was far from achieving the goals it had set for itself.

He also struck a note of caution on the current economic, political and security situation in the country, saying there was an urgent need to find immediate solutions to these raging challenges.

"I congratulate everyone on the occasion of the Republic Day but the reality is that we have not succeeded in achieving the targets we had hoped to achieve.

"From economic, political to internal and external security, the country is faced with several challenges which we have to overcome and whose solutions we will have to find," Singh said.

In a veiled attack on the Congress-led UPA Government, he expressed concern over the depleting respect for constitutional bodies, saying the dignity of these institutions had been undermined.

"The dignity of the country’s constitutional structures and institutions is in shreds. Their respect has declined considerably," Singh said, adding that a lot would have to be done to restore the lost pride of these institutions.

"The dignity of the country’s constitutional structures and institutions is in shreds. Their respect has declined considerably,"

That INCLUDES the President.
