LUCKNOW || Veteran Congress leader Pramod Tiwari on Monday lashed out at the BJP and accused prime minister Narendra Modi of pushing the country to the brink. He further listed, what he called were “Five Himalayan Blunders” of PM Modi.
These included demonetisation, GST, abrupt lockdown during the Coronavirus pandemic, being very pro-America, a faulty foreign policy which has alienated the neighbouring countries and not allowing the formation of the mountain strike core, approved by the UPA II government.
The former Rajya Sabha member further said that it was unfortunate that the prime minister chose to insult the hundreds of martyrs who laid down their lives protecting Mother India when he said that not an inch of country’s land was occupied by China. He further accused the union government and its ministers of lying, one after another.
Are satellite images that are in the public domain not correct? The many-time legislator mused. He went on to say that during the UPA II, prime minister Manmohan Singh had sanctioned Rs 65,000 crore to create a special unit of 90,000 troopers for special training. This was done to exclusively checkmate the China threat, Tiwari said but rued that this was axed by the Modi government.
