Post the announcement of the 2019 general election schedule, Congress slammed Modi government for not able to “fulfil promises” ever since voted to power in 2014. Congress also said adding that Modi government will be best remembered for “wasting” its historic mandate.
In the recently-concluded press conference post the announcement of the poll schedule, Congress leader K C Venugopal said, “On May 23, people will change Modi government that believes in all talk and no work. All its promises have remained unfulfilled which is why their manifesto is missing from the BJP website now”
When asked about forging an alliance for the polls, he said, “We will make an announcement regarding tying up with regional parties within two to three days.”
One more party leader, Ahmed Patel in a series of tweets said the 2019 elections will announce a new era ending five years of “chaotic, despotic and destructive” dispensation and the country will return to the path of “sobriety, integrity and inclusivity”.
“NDA 2 will be best remembered for wasting its historic mandate in the pursuit of petty benefits for a handful of individuals, by imposing a heavy cost on the entire nation For 5 years India waited, but Acche Din never came (sic),” he tweeted.
“As the world’s largest democratic process begins we must strive to maintain and enhance its sanctity & integrity. Strict adherence to the Code of Conduct is non-negotiable. The desperation of some should not be allowed to undermine this historic exercise (sic),” he said in another tweet.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, addressing the reporters at the press conference, alleged that in the last five years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi “did not say even one thing” that touched people’s heart.
“Modi would have been more successful had he been an actor. He has behaved as an actor only,” he echoed.
