The Modi Govt sponsored parliament disruptions because it was too afraid to face tough questions and the no-confidence motion. Therefore, by organizing a fast, the Modi Govt is pulling a fast one on the people of the country. #UpvasKaJumla https://t.co/cJbHGeOIee— Congress (@INCIndia) April 12, 2018
