New Delhi, Feb 7: Reacting to Prime Minister Narendra Modi Speech in Lok Sabha, Senior Congress leader Sashi Tharoor said “PM might be a terrific orator but this speech is a farrago of misrepresentations and half-truth”.

Tharoor’s remark came soon after Modi in his more than one and a half hour long speech, questioned the previous Congress-led government and blamed them for not doing enough for the progress of the country.

In the meantime, Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande also launched a scathing attack on the Prime Minister saying people want to hear your schemes and not a criticism of Congress.

Modi also blamed the Congress for “hastily” bifurcating Andhra Pradesh and has said India is lagging behind because of them.

Hitting back at Modi’s speech Congress President Rahul Gandhi said the Prime Minister should answer the country on the Rafale deal, farmers issues and on employment generation, instead of questioning the opposition.

Talking to media outside Parliament, Gandhi stated he can understand that before 2014 Modi was blaming the Congress for everything, but even after being in power for four years he was still questioning the opposition instead of giving answers to the people from the floor of the House.
