Seems like BJP’s never ending claims of ‘Acche Din’ and regular attempts at ensuring cleanliness through the ‘Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan’ don’t necessarily ensure that the ‘secret’ scams and controversies stay under wraps.

With regular scrutiny of the media and opposition parties, which are ready to pounce on at every little opportunity they get, the BJP government hasn’t come out clean in its first year of ‘good governance.’

NewsGram brings to you the most prominent scams and controversies that have occurred in the past one year of ‘acche din.’

NULM Scam

In the last financial year, Centre had granted Rs. 1,078 crore to the states for constructing housing facilities for over 9 lakh urban homeless people, under the  National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM).

However, only 208 houses were built across the country. While around 10 lakh urban people continue to live on roads, footpaths and under flyovers, the NDA government’s response is highly awaited.

Vyapam Scam

Vyapam scam was a massive admission and recruitment scam involving politicians, senior officials and businessmen.

Indore Bench of MP High Court served notices to Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) and Medical Council of India (MCI) following a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by parents of some students after reports that more than 300 ineligible candidates managed to get into the merit list.

As per some reports, it is one of  the biggest scandals to rock Madhya Pradesh. What followed the scandal was a series of mysterious deaths of around 44 people.

Officials investigating the matter claimed that those arrested took the name of people who were already dead, a method used by organized crime syndicates to mislead the probe.

Modi Gate

The most recent controversy that has sparked numerous debates is the alleged help extended by Sushma Swaraj to Lalit Modi, in order to allow him to fly to London.

Congress and Aam Admi Party took this chance to rally and protest against BJP. They went on to demand Swaraj’s resignation from the party.

Within few days of the incident, Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje also got embroiled in the controversy with allegations of her having engaged in conversation with Modi to facilitate his travel.

Maharastra Scam

Pankaja Munde’s involvement:

What is said to be the first scam to have happened under the Devendra Fadnavis-led Bharatiya Janata Party government in Maharashtra, the opposition has accused state’s Women and Child Development Minister Pankaja Munde of irregularities in purchases for the Integrated Child Development Scheme, a supplementary nutrition scheme for vulnerable children and women.

Munde, daughter of former central Cabinet Minister Gopinath Munde, is accused of awarding contracts worth Rs 230-crore for snacks, dishes, water filters etc for ICDS child care centres, or anganwadis,  through 24 government resolutions on a single day on February 13. Moreover, the food given to the undernourished children was extremely low on quality.

Vinod Tawde’s involvement:

Education minister Vinod Tawde has become the second minister in the Maharashtra government to be accused of irregularities in awarding contracts, with authorities seeking a probe into allegations that his department finalised a Rs 191-crore contract without mandatory e-tendering.

Modi's LPG scheme reduced household air pollution: Study, VOA

A lot of BJP supporters claim that government led by Narendra Modi has launched several schemes for the development of nation in the last four years. What they failed to acknowledge that Narendra Modi has done nothing else than repackaging and renaming the previous schemes started by Congress and took their credit to his name. Shocked, aren’t you? In the last four years, Modi government has failed to develop any original ideas. So in order to appear like the government is working, they have renamed various successfully running schemes started by Congress party to fool people of the nation into believing that BJP has launched numerous schemes in the country. If you find this fact hard to believe, here is the list of s Modi government schemes that are nothing but altered name previously running schemes in the nation:

Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana

Originally Basic Savings Bank Deposit Account (BSDBA)

The (BSBDA) scheme was launched in August 2012 according to RBI which provided facility of no minimum balance required to maintain the bank account and avail all the banking services. The number of withdrawals were however limited to 4 per month. The Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) is nothing else than a wrap up on BSDAB scheme adding Rs 1 lakh of accident insurance, overdraft facility up to Rs 5,000 and a life insurance of Rs 30,000 to previous BSDAB accounts.

Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Yojana (BBBPY)

Originally National Girl Child Day programmes

According to a report of Centre for Development and Human Rights presented in 2016, the girl child education programme listed under the BBBPY scheme is nothing but the repackaging of older Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan started by Congress.

The act of similar repackaging of scheme can be found in BBBPY’s programme to improve child sex ratio and reduce the dropout rates of school girls. These programmes were already available under Congress party’s Dhanalakshmi and Sabla schemes.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

Originally Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan

One of the major Modi government schemes, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched in September 2014 is nothing but restructured result of Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan scheme which was started by Congress in April 2012.

Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan was also a renamed scheme by Congress party which was originally introduced as Central Rural Sanitation Programme by Congress in 1986.

Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana

Originally Indira Awaas Yojana

Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana, BJP
‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana ‘ is an initiative by Government of India in which affordable housing will be provided to the urban poor.

According to a parliamentary standing committee report, it is found that the most anticipated Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojna by Narendra Modi nothing by rechristened format of Indira Awaas Yojana. The funny fact about the renaming of this scheme is that several web pages of Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana still open as Indira Awaas Yojana documents.

Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana

Originally Rajiv Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana

According to an information release by government on 23rd July 2015, the Rajiv Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana stated by Congress is merged under the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana launched by BJP with no significant changes.

Soil Health Card scheme

Originally National Project on Management of Soil Health and Fertility

The similar soil cards were also issued by Congress under the National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture.

 

Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana, BJP
The aim of this scheme is to form 10,000 clusters over the next three years and bring about five lakh acres of agricultural area under organic farming to develop agricultural activity in the country

 

Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana

Originally Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana and other programmes

The lack of creativity and insight in Modi government schemes can be seen in its Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana which is nothing but the fusion of some existing components which are amalgamated together as a cluster based programme. This fact was reported in the Outcome Budget 2015-16 of the agriculture and cooperation department.

Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Yojana

Originally Jan Aushadhi scheme

The Jan Aushadhi scheme was developed by Congress to supply unbranded medicines at reduced prices. This scheme was executed on 23 April 2008 and the first store under this scheme was established on 25 November 2008. According to an statement issued by Loksabh on 144th March 2017, the Jan Aushadhi Scheme is renamed as Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana.

Make in iIndia, BJP
Make in India, a type of Swadeshi movement covering 25 sectors of the economy,

Make In India

Originally National Manufacturing Policy

The funny part about BJP copying this scheme from Congress National Manufacturing policy is that they forget the remove the information of previous policy in the new website of Make In India scheme. The broken download link redirects to the 2011 older policy document of year 2011.

The above comparison shows that BJP is not only trying to steal the credit of previously launched schemes by Congress party by just repackaging them as new schemes, but the BJP lacks credibility and insight required to develop new schemes necessary for the development of the nations. Some other Modi government schemes that were actually the brain child of Narendra Modi and BJP part resulted in drastic disaster in nation. GST and demonetisation are two biggest examples of such failed Modi government policies.
