Congress Fires ‘9 Saal 9 Sawaal’ For Modi Govt; Check The Questions & BJP’s Answer
New Delhi: The Congress on Friday posed nine questions for Narendra Modi on completion of nine years as Indian Prime Minister.
The questions ranged from rising prices, unemployment and farmers’ income, as Congress demanded an apology for the ‘betrayal’ during his tenure.
“The BJP has now been in power for nine years. The authoritarian regime has completely failed on every front. The Prime Minister must respond to these nine questions before the BJP begins to celebrate,” Congress tweeted alongside the list of nine questions.
Rahul Gandhi said the BJP had built a “9-year-old building on false promises and the plight of the public!”
Congress social media head Supriya Shrinate quipped that the Centre should celebrate a ‘Mahotsav’ Festival of their ‘failures’.
“Unemployment has been at its highest since independence and the way the government has tried to hide it is a tragedy. The Centre has fallen into its own trap but now the poor understand it. Fugitive businessmen be it Lalit Modi, Mehul Choksi, or Vijay Mallya duped the government of crores and the government could do nothing about it. The reality is 23 crores people were dragged below the poverty line in their reign whom we had benefitted between 2004-2014,” Shrinate said.
Here are the nine questions posed by Congress:
The BJP dismissed Congress’ nine questions, calling them a ‘bundle of lies and mountain of deception.’
BJP MP Ravi Shankar Prasad said at a press conference that the questions were the result of Congress’ “hatred towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”
