Sonia questions Modi on promises
Sonia questions Modi on promises, Gandhi on Saturday launched Congress\' election campaign for October 15 polls in Haryana, where it was locked in a contest with BJP and INLD among others.
Meham (Har): Taking on Narendra Modi, Sonia Gandhi on Saturday accused him of trying to "show off" as if everything has been done only after his government came to power and asked the Prime Minister what happened to his promise of bringing back the black money stashed abroad.
"They are creating such an atmosphere as if nothing has happened in the country since Independence and they will change everyone's fortunes overnight. Have any steps been taken to fulfil the promises made during the Lok Sabha elections. "Has inflation come down? Is the poor man getting food at cheaper rate? Have the unemployed got jobs?
"What happened to their promise of getting back the black money from abroad within 100 days of coming to power.
Have any steps been taken in this regard? Absolutely not," Gandhi said in a blistering attack on Modi at a rally here, hours after he urged voters in Haryana to oust the Congress, targeting it over alleged land scams and "anti-farmer" policies.
"A country is not built in a day's time. For the development of a nation it takes years of hard work, the right intention and the willingness to sacrifice. But today BJP is trying to show off as if all things are happening only after they came to power, that everything is happening for the first time," the Congress President said.
Gandhi on Saturday launched Congress' election campaign for October 15 polls in Haryana, where it was locked in a contest with BJP and INLD among others.
In a swipe at Modi, she said that empty vessels make the most noise. "Being loud doesn't mean you are speaking the truth."
