Agreed Mr Modi, Congress did plenty wrong; will you blame them for cow vigilantism, falling GDP too?

The Prime Minister yesterday launched a scathing attack on the Congress, who were pushing Narendra Modi to break his silence about the issues in the country. Man! Did he break his silence, PM Narendra Modi, again in rhetoric, tore apart Congress and blamed the party for making the nation suffer for many years.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s reply during the debate on the motion of thanks to the president for his address to the joint sitting of the two houses of Parliament was like a speech at an election rally. Instead of focusing on the promises made by the BJP-led government or people’s problems and their solutions, PM Narendra Modi took more than an hour, to take pot-shots and digging the history of the Congress party.

Literally, PM Modi was not in a mood of taking anything from Opposition any, he also said that he was following Mahatma Gandhi’s footsteps of ‘Congress-Mukt Bharat’ — another pet project/ambition of Narendra Modi — and wants to disband Congress. Narendra Modi, who kept silent on issues of cow vigilantism, or lynching or caste-based violence the country, spoke in Parliament for an hour just taking potshots at Congress.

Rather than a thank you speech, it looked liked a personal revenge and anger for Congress which came out after a long time. Narendra Modi who always talks about doing good things for fellow countrymen chose not to talk about people indulging in violence under the name of Hindutva. He also hailed Aadhaar card/scheme which benefitted crores of Indians, but what about those Indians who suffered because of it?

Modi also blamed Congress for stalling important bills in Parliament, which again was like a karma lesson of BJP-led government, as they did the same thing when they were in the Opposition. But they all forget that it is the common people and fellow countrymen who are suffering due to politicians’ ego clashes.

Rather than talking about the present and future of the country, PM Modi chose to talk about the past, starting way back from 1947. He said that “12 out of 15 Congress committees had voted for Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel…despite that, the prime ministership wasn’t given to Patel, but instead to Nehruji. What sort of democracy was that?”

What kind of democracy is this where only one man’s (Narendra Modi) self-obsession becomes country’s suffering.

He also blamed Congress for post-Independence days, saying that if you (Congress) would have worked hard we would have progressed far ahead. PM Modi forgets one thing, in all this India can be still taken far ahead but it’s you (Narendra Modi) who, currently, rather talking about development and discussing future goals, chose to jibe about Congress about which people don’t care about.

Countrymen have few simple questions, but PM Narendra Modi has no time for those questions and will continue to ignore fellow countrymen to fulfill his prophecy. So silent about cow vigilantism, Hindutavadi, anti-Muslim elements, demonetisation, unplanned GST move, farmers suicides, beef ban? PM Narendra Modi, Nation wants to know why are you so silent about all this?
