Congress leader Anand Sharma today attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over claims about improvement in economy in his speech at an event marking the second anniversary of the NDA government at the Centre, alleging he has betrayed the people of the country.
"Investment and export have dropped. Lakhs of people have lost jobs. Modi has betrayed the country," he said here.
The Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said during the tenure of BJP-led NDA government, investment in agriculture sector has "declined".
The former Commerce and Industry Minister also charged the Modi government with taking credit for schemes launched by the previous UPA government by changing their names.
"This is not done. This is wrong," he said.
Sharma alleged that the NDA government has failed on "all fronts" and termed the Prime Minister as "sapno ka saudagar" (merchant of dreams) for not "keeping" the promises he made during the Lok Sabha polls in 2014.
