Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement in Parliament proved to be a “jumlon ki dukaan” (a shop of rhetoric) and it was characterized by “false stories” and “made-up facts”, said the Congress on Thursday.
Yesterday, PM Modi continuously attacked Congress at Lok Sabha saying that the “Mahagathbandhan” or Grand Alliance proposed by the opposition is actually a “Maha Milawat” or Grand Adulteration. After that, he also blamed Congress for “intimidating” judiciary and “betraying” the nation by neglecting the armed forces.
After the attack, the Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, in a press conference said that the PM has “no right” to talk about national security as he also has proper answers to give on issues such as the Rafale deal and death of soldiers in attacks on the border.
Mr. Surjewala condemned Prime Minister saying, “You (Modi) are khota sikka (useless currency) which people have rejected and in the next 60 days, your government’s farewell is certain.”
“Your statement was characterized by false stories, made-up facts, fake boasts and proved to be a ”jumlon ki dukaan”. The Prime Minister has not done anything apart from talking. He should be called a “Banauti Prachar Mantri (fake propaganda minister),” the Congress spokesperson added.
In the Lok Sabha, he has given a sharp reply to the motion of thanks comparing the work under his “55-month” rule to the Congress” record of “55 years” in power. Meanwhile, Mr. Surjewala attacked BJP over economic issues and accused him of trying to destroy institutions such as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC).
