Gujarat Congress held a two-hoursit-in on the occassion of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi's birthday on Tuesday to remind him of his tall promises which are yet to be fulfilled.


"People should celebrate September 17 which is Modi's birthday, as international 'Feku' day," Gujarat Congress president Arjun Modhvadia said after the sit-in.

The Gujarat Congress also passed a resolution listing tall promises made by Modi, which the opposition party claimed, he never fulfilled.

"Narendra Modi promised that farmers in Gujarat would soon be riding Maruti cars. In Mehsana, he had said that if taps are opened, crude oil would flow instead of water," Modhvadia said.

During his "sadbhavana" fast held in 2011, Modi had promised that he would build 50 lakh houses for the poor in five years.

"All his tall promises are never going to be fulfilled. We passed a resolution reminding him of all the tall promises made by him which have not yet been fulfilled," Modhvadia said.

Leader of the Opposition in the Gujarat assembly Shankarsinh Vaghela charged the law and order situation in the state had collapsed.
