The Congress had alleged that distraction, propaganda, falsification of facts, intolerance and insulting political opponents and questioning the wisdom of intellectuals has been the hallmark of the BJP-led NDA government. Claiming that there was “no economic growth and it is a flat growth”, it demanded that the government make public the GDP numbers as per the old formula and provide details of those it has given jobs during last three years.
It party also hit out at the Centre over a host of issues including the “sluggish” economy, “serious” internal security, “plummeting” investment and savings, and social conditions where minorities were feeling “unsafe”. “Hundreds of crores of money they are taking out of the vaults of treasury just to build a personality cult around one person. The BJP has called it ‘MODI Fest’,” AICC senior spokesperson Anand Sharma told reporters.
