The nine questions, according to Congress, are based on significant issues brought up by Rahul Gandhi, party leader, during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
“9 saal 9 sawaal”
In addition to nine questions on topics like inflation, unemployment, and farmer income, the Congress also demanded an apology from Prime Minister Modi for the “betrayal” that occurred while he was in office. Rahul Gandhi, a senior member of the Congress, posted a list of inquiries under the hashtag “9 saal, 9 sawaal” on social media.
The Nine questions are as follows:
# The Congress questioned the reasons behind rising poverty, unemployment, and inflation as well as the distribution of public land to PM Modi’s associates.
# Regarding farmers, the grand old party questioned why the minimum support price was not legally guaranteed and why the agreements made with farmers while repealing the three “black” farm laws had not been honored.
# The third query centered on claims of cronyism and corruption.
# “Why do you allow thieves to flee? Why are you keeping quiet about the widespread corruption in BJP-run states, and why are you allowing Indians to suffer?” the document asked.
# The Congress questioned why China was still occupying Indian territory even after giving them a clean chit in 2020 regarding national security.
# The party claimed that a climate of fear was being fostered in society and questioned why intentional “politics of hatred” was being used for electoral gains.
# Why remain silent regarding crimes against minorities, Dalits, women, SC, ST, and OBCs? Why are you refusing to conduct a caste census?
# The topic of the seventh question was the alleged abuse of democratic institutions to exact retribution on the opposition and the practice of politics of vengeance.
# The Congress questioned why the programs allegedly designed to improve the lives of the underprivileged, the helpless, and tribal people were allegedly being undermined by budget cuts and stringent regulations.
# Why the Modi administration enforced a lockdown without offering assistance and refusing to compensate the families of the more than 40 lakh Indians who died as a result of COVID-19?
Supriya Shrinate, the head of the Congress’s social media team, made fun of the BJP camp as it prepared to celebrate the nine years that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been in office, saying that the government should be celebrated as a “Mahotsav” festival of its “failures”.
The Bharatiya Janata Party dismissed them and refer it as a “bundle of lies and a mountain of deception”
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) dismissed on Friday the nine inquiries made by the Congress party regarding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s nine years in office, referring to them as a “bundle of lies and a mountain of deception.” In a statement to the media, BJP MP Ravi Shankar Prasad claimed that the questions came from Congress’s “hatred of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”
