Rajasthan Congress president and deputy CM Sachin Pilot on Saturday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of blaming the Congress instead of fulfilling his responsibilities towards the people.
In a statement after the prime minister addressed a BJP rally in Tonk in the state, Pilot said that the people of the country were seeking an account of the promises Modi had made but he was now trying to mislead the people.
Attacking the Congress, Modi claimed that it had failed to fulfil its promise of waiving farm loans after coming to power in Rajasthan. “There is no truth in the claims that Prime Minister made today,” Pilot said.
He alleged that people have lost faith in the BJP government at the Centre due to compromise in internal and external security of the country in the past five years.
Pilot also said that the country’s economy has derailed, law and order situation has deteriorated and farmers are forced to commit suicide. The Prime Minister’s speech reflected their disappointment ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, he added.
He said that the BJP leaders are trying to divert attention from the issues through their statements.
