Narendra Modi was unforgiving in criticizing Congress in Parliament on issues ranging from ‘dynasty politics’, ‘scams’, ‘negligent governance’ to problems created due to ‘hasty’ bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh which wants special status. However, he also reached out to the Opposition on suggestions for making schemes like Ayushman Bharat a success.
He claimed the real NPAs were 82% and not 36%, as the previous Congress-led regime “had wrongly claimed” and that the total advance made by banks rose from Rs 18 lakh crore to Rs 52 lakh crore.
He also addressed several issues from the past blaming congress for the mess created in the history. ‘How can one of the leaders say India got democracy due to Pandit Nehru and Congress party? Is this their reading of India’s history? What arrogance is this?’
Country is suffering due to the ‘wrong’ policies of Congress since Independence; party spent time singing paeans to one family instead of focusing on people’s welfare.
