'Want to hear about govt schemes not Congress criticism': Shiv Sena on Modi's LS speech
With Prime Minister Narendra Modi coming down heavily on the Congress during his speech in the Lok Sabha, the Shiv Sena on Wednesday said that people wanted to hear about what the government has achieved since coming power and not the criticism of the Congress.
PM Modi launched a scathing attack against Congress in his speech on the motion of thanks to the President's address on Wednesday.
Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande said, "It is time that Modi ji realises it has been four years now. People were fed up because of Congress and that is why they chose you. People want to hear your schemes and not criticism of Congress.''
Modi had said the country had suffered due to the "wrong" policies adopted by the Congress since independence.
PM Modi also questioned Congress' commitment to democracy. He asked, "How did the Congress act in Kerala, how did they treat the Akali Dal in Punjab, how did they behave in Tamil Nadu? Why did Congress dismiss so many state governments at their will? This is no commitment to democracy."
He recalled that the Congress insulted Shri Neelam Sanjiva Reddy, a proud son of Andhra Pradesh, saying nobody in India needs lessons on democracy from the Congress Party. Further, he mocked at the elevation of Rahul Gandhi to Congress party's top position.
PM Modi said, "In December, did we witness an 'election' or coronation for the post of Congress President? One youngster raised his voice about this as well."
