New Delhi: Former Union Minister P. Chidambaram on Monday targeted BJP for promising statues and temples ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, instead of development and jobs.

Chidambaram alleged BJP of polarising hindu votes in the name of building Temples and Statues after failing to fulfill its poll promises for development and job opportunities for Indian citizens.

“At the beginning of five years, the promise is for development, jobs and money in every citizen’s bank account,” the Congress veteran tweeted.

“Nothing achieved, at the end of five years, the new promise is for grand temples, giant statues and doles,” he said as he reminded Prime Minister Narendra Modi of his earlier promises of vikas (development), providing two crore jobs annually and bringing back black money stashed in foreign tax havens and filling up the poor man’s coffer with Rs 15 lakh each.
