‘BJP’s 2019 poll issue could be performance, employment and development’

New Delhi, Jan 18 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) General Secretary Muralidhar Rao on Wednesday said the party’s election issue for the 2019 parliamentary poll could be “performance, employment, including growth and development”.

Addressing a seminar on “Achieving Industrial Goals – Through Integral Humanism” under aegis of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here, Rao also said that the BJP and the government led by it would promote entrepreneurship by all means with a benign tax regime.

“Time has come for all political parties not to operate on dual accounts, expecting industry to have one for transparency and benign taxation,” said Rao.

“Production, productivity and efficiency though the government of the day would promote and encourage with benevolent industrial and economic activities but in the parliamentary poll of 2019, the pressing issues for electioneering could be performance, employment, growth and development,” he added.

Elaborating on the issue of dual accounts with which political parties have been operating for years, Rao asserted that time has come when transparency in politics would have to come through a single account.
