Statesman News Service | Shimla |

Ahead of Prime Minister Narendera Modi’s Himachal Pradesh visit, Congress party launching a scathing attack, cornered him on ‘Achhe din’ (good days), inflation, Goods and Service Tax (GST), black money and unemployment.

Addressing mediapersons on Monday, Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) General Secretary Naresh Chauhan questioning Narendera Modi’s three years of achievement said that he is accountable to the public and should answer to them what he had done in these years.

“The public of the country demands an answer from the Modi led Central government, what they have done so far to reduce inflation, create employment, questioned Chauhan and said besides all this Modi should also respond to the promises made to the people of HP before the Lok Sabha elections in 2014.

Modi after becoming the Prime Minister visited HP twice, however, both the times the people of the state were left disappointed, he added.

“Modi had talked of ‘achhe din’, since the common man has not seen the good days, Modi should disclose whose good days have come, as the common man is weighed down by inflation and also many have been rendered jobless,” Chauhan said.

Taking a jibe at PM’s radio talk ‘Maan ki Baat’, Chauhan said that the PM should understand the people’s mind instead.

He said the Congress in HP will contest the Assembly elections on the development card, whereas, the BJP in the state is ‘issueless’ and hence was trying to divert the attention of the people by issuing baseless statements.

The Congress government in the last five years has done an uniform and massive development in the state, which the party will take these issues to the masses, said Chauhan.
