Reacting to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s remark that opposition played an “obstructionist role” in Parliament, the BJP hit back saying instead of pointing finger at others, he should explain his record in power for the last nine years.

“We are frustrated or not, you will see how people are going to respond to you after this...blaming the opposition shows you have no answers to give to the country,” BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said. “I would rather have the Prime Minister talk about why he has failed to function even after having the mandate given to him. In 2004 he had the mandate, again in 2009 he had the mandate given to him. Instead of pointing a finger at BJP, you had the mandate, tell us your record. Tell us what is your performance, Mr Prime Minister.”

She said, “What happened to the 100-day promise you gave — within 100 days Telangana, within 100 days the passage of the food security Bill, within 100 days women’s reservation bill, more importantly, within 100 days, the government would control the prices.”
