New Delhi: A day after the Congress released a booklet on alleged U-turns by the NDA government, party vice president Rahul Gandhi led a protest by party MPs in the Parliament over the issue.
Rahul and other Congress MPs protested in front of Gandhi statue in the Parliament complex by shouting slogans against the government and chided it for allegedly going back on the promises made to the people of the country.
“They have taken U-turn on every issue...black money, corruption, CAG. They have reneged on all their promises,” Rahul said.
The Congress leader added that the issue will be raised inside the Parliament as well.
The Congress booklet had dubbed the Modi government as a "U-turn sarkar" and projected it as a "farce" in the name of government. The party accused the NDA government of "umpteen somersaults" on a range of promises from black money to incursions.
In a 30-page booklet titled "chhe mahine paar, U-turn sarkar" (Six months after,a U-turn sarkar), it said the Prime Minister and his government have gone back on virtually each and every poll pitch "with a U-turn every week".
Releasing the booklet, AICC general secretary Ajay Maken accused the government of resorting to "white lies" on black money, flip-flop on issues with Pakistan, "double standards"on insurance bill and "gross opportunism" in aligning with NCP.
He said while Modi promised clean politics, he delivered a "tainted cabinet" and made a 180-degree turn on the issue of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and many "slip-slops" on holding elections in Delhi.
