A short film on the BJP-led NDA government’s alleged failures and flip-flops in the last two years, a booklet on how the Narendra Modi government reneged on the party’s poll promises, and a series of press conferences in more than 30 cities and towns by top Congress leaders. These are part of a strategy for a media offensive the main Opposition party plans to unleash in the next three days to counter the Centre’s second anniversary celebrations.

Top Congress leaders, including leaders of both Houses Ghulam Nabi Azad and Mallikarjun Kharge, will address press conferences in as many as 27 cities Thursday, where the short film will be played. The theme of the Congress offensive will be ‘Pragati ki thamm gayi chaal, desh ka bura haal’.

“Two years on, the Modi government has utterly and completely failed on the single-most important index of development. The government has become a government of rhetoric and theatrics…. Two key issues missing are governance and development,” said Randeep Surjewala.
