New Delhi, May 30 : Congress on Saturday termed the first year of Narendra Modi government’s second term as ‘a year of disappointment, disastrous management and diabolical pain.’
'Over the last six years, India witnessed a steady increase in the politics of distraction and false noise,' the party added. Addressing reporters via video conferencing Congress organisational general secretary KC Venugopal and party communication in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala said at the start of the seventh year, India stands at the crossroads.
“Its citizens are exhausted by the weight of this government’s sins, ineptitude and callous insensitivity to the widespread suffering. Over the last six years, the country witnessed a steady increase in the politics of distraction and false noise, to the point that it has become a defining mainstay of Modi government’s administrative style', the leaders said.
Earlier, in a letter to the nation, the Prime Minister had said, “In a crisis of this magnitude, it can certainly not be claimed that no one suffered any inconvenience or discomfort” and need to “take care to ensure that inconveniences that we are facing do not turn into disasters”. The Congress, however, said that the Modi government, “while it served the political interests of the BJP, it came at an unprecedented economic and social cost to the nation.”
“Prime Minister Modi would do well to remember extraordinary promises, beget extraordinary expectations. But as we shall see, even the most ordinary and mundane expectations of keeping a country running were beyond the capabilities of this government which promised ‘so much’ and delivered ‘so very little’,” they charged.
