Shivamogga: Vice President of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) in Shivamogga, Manjunath Bhandari, on May 8, remarked that Modi had forgotten his public position as the Prime Minster of India.
Speaking to media at the Press Club here, he criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for campaigning for state elections. “Modi has forgotten his public position as the Prime Minster of India. His public speeches for election campaign are similar to that of a local leader. This is not befitting the respectable post. He must maintain dignity of his position as Prime Minister of India,” he opined.
He claimed that the common man did not get the benefits of the reduction in the oil prices in the international markets. “We see that the petrol prices are hiked every day,” he claimed.
He also alleged that Narendra Modi was claiming brownie points for the achievements and ideas of UPA government led by the Congress. He said, “He simply changes the names of the projects but people know the truth.”
Accusing the PM of using the Income Tax department as his agent, Bhandari questioned as to why there was no detailed report published on the Income Tax raids against the politicians in the state.
Bhandari accused the prime minister of coming to power with the power of his lies. He also claimed that the Indian economy had collapsed due to the failures of GST and demonetisation. “Where is the black money? Where is the Rs 15 Lakh that the PM promised to the people of India?”, he asked.
He further said that the Congress government had fulfilled its previous election promises. “The people know the truth. They will choose Congress and they will teach BJP a lesson in humility,” he claimed.
He said the public opinion was increasing day-by-day in favour of the Congress and the party was confident of winning at least five seats out of the seven in Shivamogga district.
