Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee president Sukhvinder Sukhu on Saturday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed to fulfil poll promises on black money, corruption and unemployment.
"It seems it's their well thought-out plan to gain power through misleading statements on issues pertaining to the country," he said at a public rally in Shillai in Sirmaur district.
"Even the Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu, during a debate in parliament on black money issue, said the BJP never promised to bring back black money in 100 days. Such statements lead us to believe that all poll promises on corruption, black money and unemployment were just a ploy to befool the people," he said.
"Making promises and tall claims and running a country is quite different and so far Modi and the BJP do not seem keen to fulfil its promises made during the Lok Sabha elections," he said.
Sukhu called upon Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal to play the role of a constructive opposition in the upcoming winter session of the state assembly to redress the issues of the people of the state.
"The BJP did not play the role of a constructive opposition in the assembly sessions held in the past due to which discussions on public issues could not be held and the Assembly had to be adjourned before its scheduled sittings," he added.
