PM Modi promised moon to people in last elections and did nothing: Azad
“Is creating now war hysteria”
Udhampur: Leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha and General Secretary AICC Ghulam Nabi Azad today said that Prime Minister Modi promised moon to the people in last elections but those promises, especially to youth, farmers and poor people of the country, guaranteeing 10 crore jobs, assuring 50% increase in the minimum support price (MSP) to the farmers and bringing back black money and depositing 15 lakh in the account of every common man, have proved hollow and today he does not mention anything about those issues except creating war hysteria and fear psychosis amongst countrymen for seeking votes.
Addressing public meetings at Goha, Kulhand, Bhagwah in Doda district and Neel, Ukrahal in Ramban district today Azad said that all those promises and commitments which were made by the Prime Minister Narinder Modi and BJP during last elections have proved to be hollow and ‘jumlas’ only and after five years Modi government and BJP do not talk of their report card on all those promises but are creating fear psychosis, mistrust and war hysteria.
He questioned where are the 10 crore jobs as after coming to power BJP advised unemployed youth to sell ‘pakoras’, instead of bringing back money and depositing 15 lakh to every account holder, the peoples’ money in the banks were taken away by the rich people close to the corridors of power and they ran away under the nose of Modi government.
“The farmers continued committing suicide but the Modi government remained indifferent and insensitive to their genuine issues. The atrocities on women and weaker sections continued unabated and the poor are facing unprecedented price hike but for BJP and Modi government these are no more issues of governance and election issues because they engage and divert people’s attention over issues of religion, caste and especially war hysteria to escape from the questions,” he said.
Azad lashed out at the BJP for the divisive and diversionary tactics especially creating atmosphere of mistrust and hate for political gain ignoring the larger interests of maintaining social and religious harmony among the diversity in the country, which is paramount for the unity and integrity of the nation.
Appealing people to reject the communal and divisive politics, he asked the people to vote for Congress party and ensure the victory of its nominee Vikramaditya Singh in order to strengthen the secular forces in the country.
