New Delhi: Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh once again took on the central government for what he claimed were BJP's faulty policies in the country. Speaking at a Bharat Bandh rally at Ramlila Maidan here on Monday, he said Lok Sabha elections next year will show what people at large feel about the current government.
Taking part in the rally called by Congress against soaring fuel prices in the country, Manmohan Singh took on PM Narendra Modi's policies since coming to power in 2014. "Modi government has done a number of things that were not in the interest of the nation. The time to change this government will come soon," he said.
The Modi Govt has completely failed in keeping its promises to the people of India. The need of the hour is for different parties to set aside their differences & come together: Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh at the #BharatBandh protest. #MehangiPadiModiSarkar pic.twitter.com/0K4j1ekF7D

With Manmohan Singh were senior Congress leaders, including Sonia Gandhi and party president Rahul Gandhi. Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar and Loktantrik Janata Dal's Sharad Yadav too were present. There are 21 parties supporting the call for bandh against the current spate of petrol and diesel price hikes.
