“There is an undeclared emergency in this country for the last 49 months with opposition suppressed and PM Modi himself following them who give death and rape threats to anyone who oppose them, including Union Minister Sushma Swaraj”.
The Congress leader accused the Prime Minister of trying to divert current issues by raking up history ahead of 2019 elections.
He further said that Modi’s mounting promises have been turned out to be lies. Black money hasn’t returned yet and democracy under the NDA- BJP government is dying.
“Atmosphere of fear is created to suppress dissent”, the Congress leader added.
Surjewala’s reaction came to PM Modi’s Mumbai speech where he launched a scathing attack on the grand old party over the emergency.
