Panaji: In a scathing attack on Congress-led UPA, BJP Sunday said rampant corruption, policy paralysis especially on economic issues, two power centres in the ruling dispensation and tampering with constitutional institutions has led to the present "dismal" situation in the country.
In a strongly-worded Political Resolution passed by the BJP at its National Executive Meet here, the main opposition said people are fed up of the UPA and called itself the only viable and credible alternative to the present regime.
BJP took on the Congress-led government on three main issues: "obnoxious corruption; degradation of the economy; and a malignant assault on the federal spirit of our polity".
The party said UPA-II had no achievements to show on completion of its four years in office last month.
Maintaining that there is a defective structure of leadership in the UPA, BJP charged that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is "merely in office and not in authority".
Real powers of policy making are vested in Congress President Sonia Gandhi, it said.
The resolution, which was moved by former BJP President Nitin Gadkari, said the resultant indecision, inability and silence of the Prime Minister in the last nine years is at great cost to the country.
