PM Modi in Pasighat: Congress’ manifesto corrupt, full of lies and hypocrisy

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday while addressing the people of Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh blasted at the Congress and termed its manifesto for 2019 Lok Sabha Polls calling it as ‘dishonest’ and full of lies. It is not a ghoshnapatra (manifesto) but a dhakosla-patra (hypocritical document)," PM Modi said, campaigning in Arunachal Pradesh.

The Congress on Tuesday released its manifesto with its chief Rahul Gandhi highlighting its focus on five big economic and social ideas, keeping NYAY scheme on top that promises Rs. 72,000 a year to India's poorest families.

"What has happened to these people," PM Modi said repeatedly referring to the Gandhis - without naming them - as "Namdars".

“Inn logon (Congress party) ki tarah hi inka ghoshna patra bhi brashth hota hai, beimaan hota hai, dakosalo se bhara hota hai aur isilye use ghoshna patra nahi dakosala patra kehna chaiye,” PM Modi said.

"On one hand this chowkidar is standing here trying to protect the country and on the other hand, this power-hungry Congress has stooped so low. Is Congress's hand with the citizens or with anti-nationals."

The Prime Minister said, " 2019 election is an election between truth and lies, between those who deliver and those who make false promises, between those you can trust and those who are corrupt."
