Congress on Wednesday brought out a booklet on BJP's "100 days of misrule" insisting that results of all the bypolls after the Lok Sabha election reflect "people's anger" over "hollow promises of a useless government".
The slide of the ruling party was a "significant trend" that will gather momentum with the "unmasking" of BJP, the party claimed in the booklet titled "Modi government-The truth of BJP government: 100 days of misrule".
"The story till now is only of slogans and more slogans. The nation is worried at what lies in store for India for the remaining tenure of this government", the AICC said in the booklet released by party spokesman Anand Sharma.
Suggesting that the landslide for BJP has turned into a slide, it said, "The results of all the bye-elections held after 2014 Lok Sabha reflect people's anger and rejection of BJP's politics of hatred and hoodwinking." The party noted that in the 54 Assembly constituencies where bye-elections were held, BJP had led in 42 constituencies in May 2014 which has now been reduced to only 21".
Dubbing the Modi rule and its assurances as "hollow promises of a useless government" (khokhle vaade nikammi sarkar), it said that the 100-day rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed that he has assumed the role of a dream merchant in the poll campaign and "sold false dreams".
Demanding an apology from the government for "fooling the people" during the election campaign, it said NDA owed an explanation over its "failure" to control prices after coming to power.
Listing out the "failures" of the government on several fronts, the party alleged that the BJP-led dispensation was "still in election mode". "It continues to make wild and baseless allegations on its political opponents on the one hand and continues to make false promises on the other." Assuring people that "mistakes and wrong doings" of Modi government will not go uncontested, the party said that it will ensure that the remaining tenure of this government is "bereft of pain" for people of the country.
Noting that BJP has lost most of the bypolls in all regions to Congress and other opposition parties, it said, "This is a significant trend that cannot be ignored, and will surely gain momentum with the unmasking of BJP."
