Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday lashed out at the Narendra Modi government as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has planned celebrations to mark the third year of its government at the Centre.
"3 years of broken promises, non performance & betrayal of a mandate," said Rahul Gandhi in a series of tweets.
Stating that youth are struggling to find jobs, farmers are committing suicide & soldiers are dying at the border, Rahul asked, "What exactly is the Govt celebrating?"
CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury has also described the three years of the Narendra Modi government as "three years of failure".
"The Modi government is gearing up to celebrate three years in office. Actually, it is three years of failure," he said while addressing a public meeting on Monday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lent his name to a gala -- called Modi Fest -- being planned by his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Modi, reportedly, does not refer to his name but stands for Making of Developing India.
The festival will be kicked off by the prime minister with a series of events and a public meeting in Guwahati on May 26, and will conclude on June 15. Party chief Amit Shah is also likely address the media on the opening day.
The celebrations are planned to be held across 300 towns with seven programmes, a party leader said.
The massive saffron win in Uttar Pradesh, coupled with a fractured opposition which has so far been unable to challenge its surge, has given a boost to its top brass which has already set its eyes on the next Lok Sabha polls in 2019.
