Chennai: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Saturday lauded the BJP-led Centre for making a determined effort to clean up River Ganga, about which he ‘felt proud’. The top leader also credited the NDA government for “succeeding” in its National Highway building programme and further building on the initiatives of the UPA regime like the Aadhar.
Every government took some initiatives, which are good and beneficial, he said, adding, “I mean even the most incompetent government will do a few things which are good for the country. How can you deny that? Any government will do some good things.”
Answering a question from the audience, at his “Undaunted: Saving the Idea of India,” book release event here, he said he was very angry with the BJP-led government because they did “the largest evil to the largest number (of people) by demonetisation.” Also, through the “flawed” implementation of the GST, he alleged the “largest evil” was done to business and trade.
