Eight years of Modi rule a ‘disaster,’ TNCC chief says | India News – Times of India


CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Congress Committee (TNCC) president K S Alagiri has dubbed the eight years of Narendra Modi’s rule as a “disaster.” He has demanded that the Prime Minister explain how the wealth of a few businessmen has increased manifold during his regime when the people are suffering due to poverty and famine.
In a statement on Wednesday, Alagiri said the PM in his speech in Shimla on Tuesday declared that corruption had been uprooted in the eight years of the NDA regime.
Alagiri said Modi had come to power by making tall promises. But the PM failed to honour his poll promise of bringing black money to the tune of Rs 85 lakh crore that was stashed abroad and depositing Rs 15 lakh in each and everyone’s bank account, Alagiri said.
“Media reports say that the use of black money has doubled in the country. The Modi government has not eradicated black money and corruption,” he said.
Stating that the scam in purchasing of Rafale fighter jets as “mother of all scams”, the TNCC president said Modi, who has direct link in the Rafale scam, should have unmatched courage to claim that his government had eradicated corruption.
Alagiri said recent reports revealed that 20 crore Indians went to sleep with empty stomachs daily. The reports also divulged that around 7,000 people died of starvation in the country daily. India was placed at 94th out of 107 countries on the Global Hunger Index 2020, he added.
