Congress calls PM ‘Jagadguru of Jhoot’, ‘factchecks’ his Imphal speech

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi lied during his poll speech in Imphal.

Terming the Prime Minister “Jagadguru of Jhoot,” Ramesh said that the prime minister claimed full coverage “when Manipur is among the worst in the country on vaccination rates. Only 47.6% of the eligible population have got a double dose.”

Ramesh said that Modi claimed balanced development in Manipur and taking administration to the door. “The truth is BJP govt has effectively shut the doors of the Autonomous District Councils by not holding elections in the last 5 years. This is murder of democracy in the hills and the grassroots,” Ramesh said.

In a series of tweets, he further said that “PM claimed poor performance in the power sector under the Congress government when the truth is his own govt grave a national award to the Congress government in 2015-16 for power sector reforms.”

“PM claimed Palm Oil plantations will benefit Manipur’s farmers while the truth is it is the transfer of profits and farm lands to 2-3 big palm oil companies,” read the tweet by former Union minister.

Ramesh also said that Modi made tall claims on bringing railways to Manipur while the truth is Congress government completed more than 70% of the project by 2017.

In his last tweet, he went on to say: “The truth is the people of Manipur are fed up with the double engine haijinbi govt of BJP in Delhi and Imphal. The mood of Manipur is clear. Come 10th March, it will be Bye-Bye, BJP!”
