On Tuesday, the Congress party began a campaign to “expose” the performance of the Narendra Modi government, on completion of its three years in power. The party claimed that it had achieved nothing but failure on all the fronts, including national security.
Senior party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia was heard saying “The government that came to power promising good days to the people have now left 125 crore people helpless… there is an environment of intolerance in the country… this government and its representatives have created an anti-Dalit thought and ideology across the country, have not spared independent institutions… they had talked about minimum government and maximum governance and the reality of what we are seeing is maximum government and minimum governance”.
AICC communication department head Randeep Surjewala said that the party would conduct a nationwide campaign along with like-minded parties in the next two years to expose the central government.
Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot, former Union minister R P N Singh, Lok Sabha MP Sushmita Dev and former MP Divya Spandana were also present at the press conference.
The party leaders said the Modi government had failed to fulfil its promises of creating new jobs, ensuring women security, easing agrarian issues and controlling price rise.
“Be it ghar wapsi, anti-Romeo squad… they are trying to impose one ideology on the country. People are being terrorised,” Pilot said.
Questioning national security, Singh said PM had visited Pakistan for a feast “after there had been several attacks. Is this their nationalism?”
A video titled “Teen saal, 30 tikadam” was also released as part of its campaign.
