Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday launched a scathing attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over their ‘Acche Din’ promise, saying that the election slogan had become a joke.

“The Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government has been in power for little over a year. Before elections he had vowed to develop the nation and had coined the ‘Acche Din Aayenge’ slogan. He might have forgotten it, but I would like to remind him of it. Today when we say ‘Acche Din Aayenge’, people laugh at it asking where are the Acche Din?” Rahul told the media here.

The Congress vice-president asserted that ‘Acche Din’ can come only when the condition of farmers, poor and Dalits improve in the country.

“He goes to London, Malaysia, America and meets big people but there are no Acche din here. Good days will truly come only when condition of the farmers, poor and Dalits improves,” he added.

He also recalled UPA-government’s MNREGA scheme, saying that it had changed the lives of people.

Rahul today interacted with the sugarcane farmers and led a march here to highlight their problems.
