The Congress party and its leaders came down heavily on the BJP government’s performance in its first 100 days. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Sunday, took a dig at the economic performance of the Modi government.

Rahul Gandhi in his tweet said, “100 days No Vikas”and the “continued subversion of democracy”, “stranglehold on a submissive media” and it needs to “turnaround our ravaged economy.”

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi also attacked Modi government and said that the government is still silent on the issue of economic slowdown and is hiding the truth from people through drama, deceit and lie.

Priyanka’s tweet in Hindi said, “Government is sitting silent on economic slowdown. The business has been stalled as companies are in trouble. From drama, deceit, lie, and publicity they are hiding the critical condition of the country from people.”

In a series of tweets, the Congress party took a dig at the Modi government. It highlighted that the automobile sector is “facing its worst ever crisis,” and “When all else fails, arrest high profile Opposition leaders and hope the public doesn’t notice you have failed in every field.” It also tweeted about the Sonbhadra massacre, the Unnao rape case and the various mob lynchings.

In one tweet Congress party said, “The BJP treats the parliament like a notice board; bills are not debated or discussed but presented just to complete a formality. This is a sign of a weakening democracy.”

The Opposition party also did a press conference fielding senior leader Kapil Sibal. He said, “Auto sales have slumped to a near two-decade low, 3,50,000 workers have been laid off; over 300 dealerships have been closed. Auto component maker Sundaram-Clayton Ltd has announced that it would shut its Padi factory in Tamil Nadu for two days.”

Sibal also accused the government of muzzling the voices of the Opposition leaders.
