Mumbai: Taking potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former Union Minister and Congress leader Anand Sharma on Sunday demanded that he tender an apology to people of the country, as he did not fulfil the promises he assured to complete in his first 100 days in office.

Sharma, Deputy Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, accused Modi of depicting a wrong picture of the country to the people.

He also said that the two-thirds of the UN General Assembly was empty during Modi's address.

"Good days" have come for Modi and his government but the society and public are yet to witness such days, he told reporters at a press conference here, adding, "Modi's claim that India has seen an image improvement at international platform due to him, is wrong."

"Modi, who has a dominating style of functioning and has centralised the power, ordered his associates to promote work completed in 100 days. However, the promises he assured to complete were not fulfilled.

"The government was to bring down inflation but no work had started in that direction and it remains intact. There is no significant lift in employment generation," he alleged.

"Modi claimed he will bring back black money which is seven times India's budget. He had claimed that once we get hands on the black money, India did not require to look back for budgets for seven years. Forget seven times, the Modi government did not get even 7 per cent of black money," he said.

The Prime Minister should tender an apology for making false promises and misguiding the people, Sharma said.
