Don't get swayed by tall claims of some parties: PM

Don't get swayed by tall claims of some parties: PMNew Delhi, Jan 17 - Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Friday appealed to people not to get swayed by the "tall claims" of some opposition parties, which he said were not easy to fulfil.

Addressing the All India Congress Committee session here, the prime minister also asked people to compare the work of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government with the years when the country was ruled by opposition parties.

"I appeal to people to examine the opposition claims and compare their work (when they were in power) to that done by our government. Then they will realize whose work is better," he said referring to the BJP-led NDA government's tenure.

Apparently referring to the fledgling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which routed the Congress in Delhi, he said that people should not be taken in by the "tall claims" of opposition parties as "they are not easy to fulfill".

The prime minister said while economic growth had dipped since last year, it stood at 5 percent GDP and in the last nine years of UPA rule it was 7.9 percent GDP, which is a "record" for nine years. (IANS)
