New Delhi: Eyeing on 2019 General Election Congress has started folding its cuff.
In this row, Congress has planned to observe ‘Vishwasghat Diwas’ (Betrayal Day) across the national on May 26, 2018 to expose Narendra Modi-led NDA government’s failures.
General Secretary of the Congress Ashok Gehlot and spokesperson Sandeep Singh Surjewala announced while addressing media today at party office.
“To expose NDA government and it’s failure, Congress, under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi is going to observe Vishwasghat Diwas’ (Betrayal Day) on May 26, 2018,” said Gehlot.
Justifying betrayal day observation , Gehlot further said, “The reason behind observing Vishwasghat diwas because Modi government has neither of his promises and also betrayed the faith of voters.”
Replying to the question of unprecedented price hike and BJP has been claiming that it has happened due to rise of crude oil in international market, party spokesperson Surjewala said, “When price of crude oil was at $ 108 parrel in international market the price of a liter was Rs 80 in UPA regime but now the price of crude oil is in between $ 68 to 70.”
Moreover, the UPA government was charging only Rs 3 on excise duty on petrol but today BJP is charging Rs 15. While UPA was charging Rs 9 in diesel, BJP is charging Rs 19 as excise duty. BJP should reduce excise duty and bring relief to the people.”
