New Delhi, Nov 25: The Congress on Saturday accused Prime Minister rendra Modi and all central Ministers of pitching their tents in Gujarat to campaign for the upcoming assembly elections, and leaving all the work of governce to the bureaucrats. The Congress also wondered at the “ferocious publicity” blitz launched by the BJP in campaigning in the state.

“Prime Minister himself and the tiol government is in Gujarat. Leaving all the policy related decisions, which are to be made in this tion of 130 crore people, on the bureaucrats, the Prime Minister and his Ministers have taken residence in Gujarat Nivas,” Congress leader And Sharma said addressing a press meet. He said the scale of campaigning being done by the BJP in the state was “unprecedented”. “Such ferocious publicity apparatus and resources have been deployed by BJP in campaigning, which has never been seen before during any election, whether in state or at the tiol level,” he said.

Sharma criticised the BJP-led union government for not making good on the promises it made in the poll manifesto and exhorted the people to hold the party to account and ask it questions on rising unemployment and stalled growth.

He said he pitied the government which relies on an exterl rating agency (Moody’s) to validate its performance and “celebrates” on its economy being granted the certificate of “stable”. (IANS)
