    New Delhi, Sep 10: The opposition led by Congress president Rahul Gandhi launched a sharp attack on Narendra Modi and his government over the rising fuel prices and other issues. Taking a dig at PM Modi, Gandhi said the prime minister often says that what has happened in the last four years of his rule has not happened in 70 years is actually true.

    However, the BJP termed it as an attempt to spread rumour and confusion among the masses and said people will "puncture the grand alliance balloon" floated by the main Opposition party.

    Here is who said what:

    "The Narendra Modi government has done a lot which is not in the interest of the nation and has now crossed all limits," said Manmohan Singh, adding that the government had entirely failed in supporting farmers.

    "The BJP government is so proud of itself that even today when the Opposition has called for a bandh, they have increased fuel price in some places. Government can even say that inflation will bring development," he said.
