Shourie’s remarks are the reality: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress Party on Tuesday welcomed former Union Minister Arun Shourie’s remarks on the NDA government, alleging that the current government had done nothing but making false promises in its 16-month rule.

Congress leader Pramod Tiwari even lauded Shourie, saying that that latter is known for standing by the truth.

“What he has said is the reality, Congress has always been saying this. This government has done nothing other than making false promises to people in last 16 months. They have been keener of making headlines than running the government,” Tiwari told ANI.

Meanwhile, Congress leader Manish Tewari echoed similar views and said that people were indeed missing former prime minister Manmohan Singh’s regime.

“The way the current dispensation has unleashed anarchy in the last 17 months, people are missing days before they (NDA) came to power. I agree with him that people are indeed missing Dr.Manmohan Singh,” he said.

Training guns on Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA Government, Shourie accused the former of managing headlines instead of economy, saying that such an approach would not work in the long run.

Speaking at a book launch event yesterday, Shourie also mocked the NDA government by saying that it was nothing but ‘Congress plus cow’.

Shourie further said that looking at the way economy is being managed, people have started recalling the days of former prime minister Manmohan Singh. (ANI)
