Modi Govt Has Mismanaged Issues In J&K Like Never Before: Manmohan Singh

A day after Sonia Gandhi termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's promises as "dramebaazi" at the Congress plenary, former PM Manmohan Singh too on Sunday found fault with the "tall promises" made by Modi.

"Modi said farmers' income will be doubled in six years, it is a jumla-type statement unlikely to be achieved", Singh said, as he expressed doubts over the government's key agrarian agenda of doubling farmers' income by 2020.

He also attacked the Modi govt saying their "tall promises" during the campaign had fallen flat and that even though Modi "promised 2 crore jobs, he couldn't provide 2 lakh". "The government mismanaged the Jammu and Kashmir dispute like never before".

He said that the government must recognize the situation and difficulties that have mired in the state, and should come up with soultions to tackle the problem that is spreading across the place. "For that, a growth rate of 12% p.a.is necessary which is unthinkable in the current scenario". Regrettably, this is being undermined by the Government by making policy towards Pakistan a divisive domestic issue.

Describing the government's demonetisation move as "ill-considered" and GST as "hastily implemented" +, the Congress leader said the twin measures had "messed up Indian economy". "There are today issues which are a source of great worry to all our citizens", the former Prime Minister said. But, the BJP government's policies pushed people into poverty, he claimed. "Today it is a matter of concern that we have mismanaged our relations with major capitals of the world, with major strategic partners and our immediate neighborhood", Sharma said.

The resolution added that a Congress government would focus on prosperity for all through equal economic opportunities, the poor and middle class, large investments in public services like education, health, etc boosting business confidence as well as focusing on developing human and economic indicators.

In its 84th Plenary session, the party noted that the Modi's tendency to disparage his predecessors and diminish India's achievements since Independence has undercut the country's credibility overseas. Those promises have not been fulfilled.

At a time when the Congress is seeking to get back to power and to create alliances with like-minded parties to oust the BJP in 2019, the former prime minister said the Congress party was once again being "invited and challenged to play a similar role".
