Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Friday called the Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the “worst leader India has seen since Independence”.
The Congress leader further challenged the PM to mention “even one instance of a promise fulfilled by his government in the past five years”.
“The ‘jumlebaaz’ Prime Minister has brought the nation to its nadir with his deceptions and fabrications, and was staring at his moment of judgement at the hands of the people, who are set to throw him out of power for good…One wonders with what face Modi intends to go back to the people of India to seek re-election a few weeks from now,” he said.
The Punjab Chief Minister further hit out at PM Modi over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots issue, raising questions on his “studious silence on the BJP/RSS workers named in the Tilak Marg police station FIR related to the worst violence perpetrated against the Sikhs, while trying desperately to drag the Gandhi family into the matter even though no fingers had been pointed at them”.
After Modi termed Congress farm loan waiver as lollipops, Singh said despite the fiscal mess inherited by his government from the previous SAD-BJP regime, Punjab has waived Rs 3,417 crore of crop loans of 4,14,275 farmers in the span of 12 months.
