New Delhi, May 25 (IANS) Even as the Narendra Modi government completes two years at the Centre, the opposition parties are mincing no words in criticising its performance. On Wednesday, the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) targeted the Modi dispensation, saying the NDA government has failed on most fronts.
“The Narendra Modi government, which came to power by fuelling high expectations of development, has failed on almost all fronts,” JD-U spokesman K.C. Tyagi said.
“Seven core industrial sectors are showing negative growth and the government has failed to push critical reforms like the GST (goods and services tax). The flagship programmes of Narendra Modi government have been high on promises but low on delivery,” he said.
Tyagi said that the “achche din” promised in terms of creating employment opportunities for the youth are yet to materialise.
“The recent developments reaffirm the government’s scant regard for the interests of the working class as well as the salaried sections of the society,” he said.
The JD-U leader added that the fringe elements are vitiating the atmosphere, and the minority and marginalised communities are living under constant threat.
“Severe repression of students in central universities is seen all over the country. Black money stashed away abroad has not been brought back. Farming sector is reeling under severe stress, and the government refused to hike the minimum support price to the farmers,” Tyagi said.
“Overall, the NDA government has not been able to effect a turnaround in the government’s functioning. It has failed even on implementing the promises which it made in its election manifesto,” he added.
