The Congress on Thursday launched a scathing attack on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government, saying there were only lectures but no governance since it had come to power.
Addressing media persons in Ahmedabad, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said the government failed on each and every front. The Congress highlighted the failures of the NDA government, including foreign policy, which the prime minister puts as his top most priority.
“The BJP has severely dented our relations with the neighbours. Look at China, it is now opposing India at the NSG, it opposes our stand to give terrorist entity to Masood Azhar and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). There is no new idea as far as relationship is concerned with the United States,” Tewari said.
“If you see in totality, the prime minister has done nothing on the front of foreign policy and has just been paying trips to various nations,” he added.
Tewari questioned the promise of Modi of ‘Acche Din’ and ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas’, “We want to ask Modi a very basic fundamental question-You promised of ‘Acche Din’, ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas’. Can you tell us how the life of the common people have been improved and affected? How you have been able to better the life of a common man in the past two years?”
Meanwhile, addressing another press conference in New Delhi, Congress said that the only feat which Prime Minister Modi has achieved in the last 24 months was to become a great speaker but one who has done no work.
“Bhashan veer Modi do saal mein karamveer nahi ban paaye. Only bhashan no shasan. (Prime Minister Modi’s words speak louder than his actions. There was no governance, only lecture),” Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said.
“There was negligible growth in various core sectors. The value of rupee is sliding, inflation is on rise. The Big achievements of this government are creation of social tension, provocation by BJP leaders, unnecessary controversies and mob violence,” said senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.
Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge asked the ruling dispensation to refrain from attacking the Congress and to listen to the suggestions and advises of the Opposition as well.
