Sena praises previous Congress governments, says Modi not ready to admit the chaos created by note ban

The Shive Sena on Friday praised the development works done by previous Congress governments at the Centre and again lashed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he is not ready to admit the "chaos" created by demonetisation.

It also talked about Modi's "raincoat" remark targeted towards former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, and added being in power with thr corrupt is also corruption.

An editorial in Sena mouthpiece "Saamana" said without the works of previous Congress governments, Modi would have been ruling a backward nation in Africa.


“Modi is not ready to accept the chaos demonetisation has caused. His personal advertisement machinery tries to hide every wrong policy of his government and leaves no stone unturned to attack the Congress. Modi should come out of this negative perception now,” the editorial said.

“Even if one believes the Congress governed while indulging in corruption, it transformed the nation, which could not even produce a needle during Independence, to one that is at the forefront of economic and industrial development. The previous rulers have made India what it is today,” it read.

“Today, if you do not believe with closed eyes that the previous government only indulged in corruption, you will be termed as an anti-national and killed,” the ruling alliance partner of NDA said with a mark of sarcasm.

The editorial praised Indira Gandhi and said the former Prime Minister taught Pakistan a lesson in the 1971 wr, never shown a double standard about anti-nationals, did not impose any trouble by banning the lower denomination currencies and was hence named  "Durga" by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

“Her strong will was the nation’s shield. She nationalised banks, made better the nation’s economy, gunned down Khalistani terrorists and gave the message that India will not bend before terrorists. She sacrificed her life for the nation,” it said.

Hailing Rajiv Gandhi, the BJP ruling partner in Maharashtra said, “He had the will to govern by clean means. He may have got the taint of Bofors, but he has to be credited with bringing computers to India. The development of technology today is only because he laid a strong foundation.”

“Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh were successful in saving the nation from economic imbalance. Had all this not happened in the last 60 years, Modi would today be governing a nation like Somalia or Burundi,” Janta Ka Reporter quoted Saamana editorial.
