New Delhi, Jul 3 : The Congress today hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his attack on the opposition, saying it was important that the government be removed in national interest and there was nothing wrong in like-minded parties getting together to achieve this task.
Congress senior spokesperson Anand Sharma also hit out at Modi, alleging that he had been working with malice since 2014 when he came to power and had treated the opposition, especially the Congress, as his personal enemy.
Sharma also attacked him over his claims on the country’s economy, alleging that the BJP’s “undemocratic rule has wrecked on the Indian economy”, with the rupee falling to a new low and a decline in growth.
“The prime minister should not complain that we want to remove him. It is not him, but his government that should be removed in national interest and we will work towards achieving it. The PM need not give us advice on this. Whatever responsibility he has been entrusted with, he has failed to do so,” he told reporters.
“It is important in national interest that the BJP is removed from power and it is not wrong for the like-minded parties to get together to achieve this,” Sharma said.
The former union minister also hit out at the prime minister alleging that he was making “false statements” and the country had suffered ignominy internationally as images of mob lynchings and crimes against women were aired across the world.
