President’s speech ignores prime issues facing India: Trimool

New Delhi, Feb 6: Trimool Congress MP Saugata Roy on Monday compared President Prab Mukherjee’s address to Parliament to the Om Puri movie ‘Ardh Satya’, saying it ignored half the issues confronting the country. Participating in the discussion in the Lok Sabha on the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address, Roy also flayed the rendra Modi government over demonetisation and “abusing the CBI” and asserted they will fight the Bharatiya Jata Party’s regime ‘lock, stock and barrel’. “The President’s speech reminded of a film starring Om Puri – Ardh Satya (half truth). He had failed to mention most of the important issues confronted by the country,” said Roy opposing the Motion of Thanks. “Kashmir, for more than six months, came to standstill following the killing of militant Burhan Wani. Over 100 people were killed during this period. But this issue failed to find a mention in his address. “Similarly, the speech has mentioned demonetisation, but nothing about the people who died. He did not mention the country’s biggest problem – lack of jobs,” Roy added. (IANS)
