CWC meet: Sonia Gandhi lashes out at BJP

New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party led NDA Government on various issues at the Congress Working Committee meeting.

Commenting on the withdrawal of the Land Ordinance Bill by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sonia said, “The U-turn on the Land Ordinance is evidence that Government is out of touch with ground realities. Modi Government has failed abysmally to match words with deeds, to match media events with actual accomplishments.”

“The economy is on a downward slide while prices continue on their unrelenting rise. As for promises such as the creation of jobs or slogans such as Make in India, the less said about them the better,” said Gandhi.

The Congress President also blamed the BJP for threatening the media, saying, “The media is being threatened with notices and other repressive measures.”

“The security situation in our neighbourhood has deteriorated considerably. Instead of a coherent policy on Pakistan, this Government can’t seem to make up its mind on what it should do,” said Gandhi commenting on the Indo-Pak relations.

She also lashed out at BJP for its three-day BJP-RSS meet last week. “The country last week was given clear evidence of what is obvious for a long time. Modi Government is controlled and directed by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.”

The Congress Working Committee deliberations are still underway. (ANI)
