New Delhi, Aug 12: The Congress said on Sunday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi could not list a single achievement of his government in his interviews and alleged that he was seeking to build a narrative for the BJP by “weaving lies and concocting theories”. Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera told the media that Modi’s “monologues in the form of interviews” showed his unwillingness to face an interactive press conference. Khera said people would give the Bharatiya Janata Party a fitting reply in Assembly elections later this year and the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

“Spewing unadulterated lies on economy and development, shedding crocodile tears on swiftly tearing social fabric of the country by weaving lies and concocting theories to build a narrative, this is not what people want to listen from their Prime Minister. In the last lap of his term, Modi wants people to buy his massive failures as ‘Acche Din’,” he added.

Referring to the National Register of Citizens in Assam, the Congress said Modi was playing politics to use it as “a divisive and emotional tool” to mislead people. He said the Congress-led UPA government deported 82,728 Bangladeshi foreigners between 2005 and 2013 as against a mere 1,822 deportation under the Modi government. (IANS)
