Modi’s nine years in office: Kharge accuses BJP govt of ‘looting’ people
Taking a dig at the BJP-led government at the centre over the completion of nine years in office, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday accused the BJP of “looting” people’s earnings through “deadly inflation” while making “arrogant claims” about it.
The government completed nine years in office on May 26. Highlighting the achievements of nine years of the NDA government, the Centre said that the country has witnessed “all-round development and inclusive growth” under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Attacking the government in a tweet in Hindi, Kharge said, “With deadly inflation in nine years, BJP looted the public’s earnings! GST impacted everything important, spoiled the budget, made life difficult!”
While lambasting the government, Kharge did not mince words. “Arrogant claims–inflation is not visible or we do not eat this expensive thing at all. Journey from Acche Din to Amrit Kaal, due to inflation, the amount of public loot has increased!” Kharge added.
With Prime Minister Modi completing nine years in office, the Congress had asked him nine questions last week on issues such as rising prices, unemployment and farmers’ income, and demanded an apology for the “betrayal” during his tenure. The party had also said that the government should mark the day of its anniversary as “Maafi Diwas” (The Day of Forgiving).
