Congress hits back at Modi’s taunt with ‘dagabaaz’ jibe

New Delhi, Sep 10 (IANS) Responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘hawalabaaz’ (corrupt) jibe, the opposition Congress on Thursday hit back at the ruling BJP by calling its leaders ‘dagabaaz’ (betrayers).

“Let the 125 crore population of this country decide who is the ‘dagabaaz’,” the opposition party said.

“They (BJP leaders) made a ‘hawabaazi’ (hot air) promise before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections to the people of putting Rs.15 lakh in the bank accounts of every person out of the black money brought back from abroad. But after coming to power, they betrayed the people by resorting to ‘hawabaazi’. Now, let the people decide who is the real ‘dagabaaz’ (betrayer),” Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

“Before the elections, they promised 50 percent profits to the farmers of the country, but after coming to power at the Centre, they left the 70 crore farmers with no option but to commit suicide,” the Congress leader said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hit out at the Congress for not allowing parliament to function during the monsoon session, terming it ‘hawalabaaz’ (corrupt) and accusing it of creating roadblocks for the government.
