Main opposition BJP today said it will support the government on issues of national importance like right to food for the poor, high economic growth, internal security and the Women’s Reservation Bill.
“On the issues that are in the national interest, BJP will strongly (stand) behind the government in the first 100 days,” Leader of Opposition Arun Jaitley said in the Rajya Sabha.
Jaitley said if the Opposition supported the government on Women’s Reservation Bill, the “credibility of Indian polity” would be enhanced.
However, the newly-elected Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said there would be several areas where his party would “fiercely” oppose the government. In certain areas, it would “caution the government”.
