Role as the Leader of Opposition
As Leader of Opposition, I have focused on the efforts to position BJP as a party which plays a pro-active role in the democratic functioning of the country. Thus, all steps have been taken to expose deficit of governance; be it various corruption scandals such as the 2G spectrum scam, the Common Wealth Games scam, the Antrix-Devas deal, or the failure on the economic front to rein in spiraling inflation and to push for a stable environment conducive for investments and growth. The Party played a very constructive role while passing the historic Women's Reservation Bill in Rajya Sabha. Similarly, the Party kept the government under scrutiny while passing the Indo-US Nuclear Deal. The Party supported the Anna Hazare movement for bringing in a strong and effective Lok Pal and successfully resisted the passing in the Rajya Sabha of a weak bill passed by Lok Sabha.
