Modi Govt has done nothing other than ‘show-baazi’: Sonia

Patna,  (PTI): Top Opposition leaders including Sonia Gandhi today lashed out at the Narendra Modi government for “doing nothing other than ‘show-baazi'” by slashing allocations to all major social security schemes like MGNREGA.

Addressing the ‘Swabhiman Rally’ here along with top leaders of JD(U), RJD and SP, Gandhi said “Modi-government has completed one-fourth of its time. Till now, what has it done other than ‘show-baazi’..It has done nothing. You know better than me.”

She attacked the BJP-led regime for not fulfilling its promise to provide employment to one crore people but also restricting job opportunities in the government and said the funds for major social security schemes like MGNREGA have been “heavily slashed”.

Targeting Modi for his DNA remarks, Gandhi said the Prime Minister has demeaned Bihar and shown its people in a bad light. “Some people take pleasure in mocking Bihar. Whenever they get opportunity they comment about its DNA and culture. They also call it BIMARU,” she said.

On government’s decision to allow Land Bill to lapse, Gandhi said that Modi had to bow to people’s will by giving up the ordinance.

“This is an anti-farmer government. They want to grab their land and distribute it among their rich friends. We fought for the protection of farmers’ rights in the Parliament and in the end government had to bow down,” she asserted.

Present on the dais were Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, RJD chief Lalu Prasad, JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav and SP leader Shivpal Yadav, among others.

The Congress President also questioned the government’s stand on Pakistan in the light of deaths of several army and paramilitary personnel and civilians in the firing from across the border.

“Earlier Prime Minister Modi used to lecture on Pakistan. Now when our jawans are being killed on border and people are being attacked, what is his policy on Pakistan? The Nation wants to know,” she said in an apparent reference to the recent calling off of NSA-level talks between the two countries.

Holding Modi responsible for economic crisis, Gandhi said that it is because of his mistakes that inflation has gone up. “Inflation is rising and value of money is declining. PM made only empty promises of a corruption-free India,” she said.

Appreciating RJD chief Lalu Prasad for his contribution towards the development of the state, Gandhi said “Congress contributed in taking the state forward. It gave approval to make policies. Lalu Prasad has also contributed but the state needs more.”

Reacting to the government’s decision to let the land ordinance lapse, Nitish Kumar said “today is a day of joy. This was not the PM’s Mann ki Baat but that of the people and the nation (to do away with the ordinance)”.

“The people of Bihar were misled (by BJP) during the Lok Sabha but they are not going to fall prey to such false promises this time,” the Chief Minister said.

Terming the JD(U)-RJD-Cong-SP coalition as ‘Mangal Raaj Part-2’ against Modi’s comment on ‘Jungle Raaj’, Prasad said the BJP wants to “create tension between Hindu-Muslim. I know their design. Modi called us “Jungle-Raaj Part-2 but this is Mangal Raaj Part-2,” he said.

Insisting on the disclosure of caste census data, the RJD supremo said the government should reveal the caste of landless people.

“Government census says every third family in villages is landless. Which caste do these landless people belong? Why is government not revealing it,” he said.

    Where is ‘swaabhimaana’ when you have to join hands with almost every appa-maga party in the region to survive? And, ‘hotte uri’ Niteesha Kumaara is desperately trying to avoid second round of ‘mukha bangha’. After modi-tsunaami, he has realized that the only way to survive is to join hands with every other party and hope for the best!! LOL

    Only time will tell how this all will unfold…

      Longtime Critic of Modi Is Now a Target

      India’s Supreme Court has come to Ms. Setalvad’s rescue again and again.

      Few critics have pursued the Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, more doggedly than Ms. Setalvad, the driving force behind an unrelenting campaign to hold Mr. Modi criminally responsible for riots in 2002 that killed more than 1,000 people in Gujarat, the state Mr. Modi ran before becoming prime minister.

      When a witness in one of the riot cases accused Ms. Setalvad of kidnapping, the Supreme Court dismissed the witness as a “self-condemned liar.” When Ms. Setalvad was accused of coaching witnesses to make false allegations, Supreme Court justices repeatedly rejected the charge. In 2011, when the Gujarat government accused Ms. Setalvad of illegally arranging to have riot victims exhumed, the Supreme Court dismissed the case, calling it “100 percent spurious.”

      Now, please tell me in straightforward English – The New York Times has “hotte uri” too, right ya Rampu?

      Now YOU know that the ‘Lifetime Joker’ Award should go to none other than ……… Rampaaaa… 🙂

      Until then, please continue to be a good Joker. See if you have some names to REPEAT (copy-paste) for us from the latest MIA gold-smuggling incident! After all, as your best pal Arnaba Goswami thunders time & again – “The country WANTS to know… the country WANTS to know”.

      What you two blest folks need to know is that around 250 + million Indian people worry ONLY about FROM where their next next meal will come from and NOT about what it contains! And by the flare of your ridiculous chaddi, the Country WANTS to know! Hahahaha! AND we have this Joke called Rampa who is in some phoreen land is talking about “hotte uri” and whatnot! Hahahahaha!

      • Joker Praveena Pinto,
        What’s the point in posting a link from New York Times, a left-leaning news outlet, that tends to oppose almost all conservative, right-wing politics all over the world? Did you know that the same media outlet refused to publish a cartoon of pravaadi even when it was reporting on the same incident?? However, it was too quick to publish a derogatory, demeaning picture of Jesus Christ. See, your limited understanding of world politics and underlying equations make it almost impossible for you to understand my in-depth analysis of these topics. Moreover, my initial comments were on congress party’s desperate political survival attempts in the name of ‘swaabhimaana’. It was anything but ‘swaabhimaana’!! LOL By the way, do you know what does ‘swaabhinaaman’ mean? smiles…

        • What’s the point in posting a link from New York Times, a left-leaning news outlet, that tends to oppose almost all conservative, right-wing politics all over the world. – Rampa in a knee-jerk reaction – A1

          Not sure who has the right to decide on ‘taste’!! In a free, open, democratic society, we do have the right to post ‘tasteless’ comments. – Rampa AGAIN! – A2

          See, your limited understanding of world politics and underlying equations make it almost impossible for you to understand my in-depth analysis of these topics. – A3

          ———————————————————————————–
          Q1: Why is your A2 diametrically opposite and hence, at loggerheads with whatever NYT does in your prattle in A1? (Well, can’t really help it if one has received education in some Paatshala in some GoMaataShala). 😛

          Q2: Who gave some Joker called Original Rampa the RIGHT to JUDGE what NYT stands for? What are Rampa’s credentials to further his Journalistic credentials – especially considering his STRONG leanings towards the RSS chaddis & that Globetrottie called Modi?. (Never mind the super-duper Joke wherein he claims – “As an agnostic who rejects all organized religions and superstitions….”.

          Hahahahahahahah! AND Rampa (of all the Jokers in this world, apna Desi Forgone Yumreeki Murgi called Rampa talks about his “in-depth” analysis of “these topics”).

          Gosh! My next couple of apt blocks ppl have sold off their TV’s! They are hooked on to you! 🙂

          • “A1…A2…A3…” writes Joker Praveena Pinto.

            So, looks like they are finally teaching you Algebra in anganawaadi !! I’m glad for you. However, it doesn’t make you any better in debates here. LOL Your response to my comments on NYT sums up it all. When I call it a left-leaning news outlet, it is not my ‘judgement’!! It’s a well-known thing here. Understood – I can’t hold you to normal standards that I have in my mind as you are still a baby learning some of these aspects through my posts.

          • So, looks like they are finally teaching you Algebra in anganawaadi ! – Rampa on my reference to his answers (i.e., A1, A2 A3)

            ONLY a Rampa could arrive at the erroneous conclusion that my references to A1, A2, A3 etc refer to Algebra! But then, WHAT can one expect from a Rampa? Can’t he even recognize they stand for his answers – i.e., Answer 1 (A1).. etc? Besides, despite repeated corrections, he can’t refrain from using a ‘space’ before using an exclamation (‘!’) mark!

            I wonder which GoMaatashala he attended. No wonder he keeps repeating silly words/phrases such as “Mohini”, “Mooka Praani”, ‘Naalige Chappala” etc.

          • Joker Praveena tries to respond to my post on ‘swaabhimana’ and ends up with ‘mooka praani’. Shows how he is incapable of staying on subject. Well..

      • Praveen – After all, as your best pal Arnaba Goswami thunders time & again – “The country WANTS to know… the country WANTS to know”.

        He is arm twisted after Sushma Swaraj episode and Vasundhara Raje episode. He has become His Masters Voice now.

        He is busy in broadcasting that which the country DOES NOT WANT TO KNOW! He is shifting the limelight to indulge in bootlegging!!!

    • Original R.Pai – Where is ‘swaabhimaana’ when you have to join hands with almost every appa-maga party in the region to survive?

      Mr. Original, where is the swabhimana of Swabhimani RSS and Modi when they joined hands with Appa Magalu party of Kashmir separatist fringe of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and his daughter Mehbooba Mufti? Just to grab power you have betrayed the nation!

      Has Modi not joined hands with Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, who as Home Minister of V. P. Singh government propped up by BJP had surrendered Kashmiri terrorists to save his daughter Rubaiya, just like Vajpayee, Advani and RSS did at Kandahar?
