Congress leader Raj Babbar today hit out at the Narendra Modi-led government, which completed two years, claiming that it has "failed on all counts" and is "organising a tamasha to impress upon people that the country has fast changed during its rule".
"The NDA government led by Narendra Modi has failed on all counts, but by organising a tamasha in New Delhi tonight it is trying to impress upon people that drastic changes have taken place in the country... Whether you believe it or not," Raj Babbar said.
"The (Central) government by way of advertisements is trying to create an impression that the country is marching ahead and everything is hunky-dory," Babbar alleged.
Babbar claimed that crop sowing area has shrunk to less than 120 lakh hectares from 125 lakh hectares in the last two years.
"Modi ji promised moon to the farmers but a ryot in Latur has sold off his 10 tons of onion produce for a mere profit of Re 1. This is how he (Modi) is going to double the income of the farmers in next five years," he alleged.
Claiming that the NDA, before coming to power, had promised to create two crore jobs, the Congress leader alleged that big industrial houses have retrenched 20,000 employees in the last two years.
According to the Labour Ministry data, the NDA government has created only 1.34 lakh job opportunities so far, he said.
"Indian business houses have invested a whopping USD 14 billion in foreign countries during NDA regime. This shows that investors have lost faith in the government's 'Make in India' scheme and invested outside the country," he claimed.
Babbar also alleged that the country's foreign policy, especially related to Pakistan and China, has taken a knock in the last two years.
