Congratulations to government on 100 days of ‘no vikas’: Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Taking a dig at the government, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday "congratulated" it on 100 days of "no vikas (development)".
“Congratulations to the Modi Govt on #100DaysNoVikas, the continued subversion of democracy, a firmer stranglehold on a submissive media to drown out criticism and a glaring lack of leadership, direction and plans where it's needed the most - to turnaround our ravaged economy,” tweeted Gandhi.

He described the government’s first 100 days in three words: “Tyranny, chaos and anarchy”.
The NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi completed 100 days after coming to power for a second consecutive term with a massive mandate.
Meanwhile, Congress in a series of tweets, claimed that the period has witnessed a slump in the economy, an increase in mob attacks, political vendetta and also in the manner the bills were passed in the parliament.
“Eight sectors have recorded a growth rate below 2 per cent and our Finance Minister still refuses to accept that our economy is in free fall. If the BJP continues this path of negligence and deceit, we are headed towards recession,” the party tweeted.
“Auto sales have slumped to a near two-decade low, 3,50,000 workers have been laid off; over 300 dealerships have been closed. Auto component maker Sundaram-Clayton Ltd has announced that it would shut its Padi factory in Tamil Nadu for two days,” the party added.
However, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar dismissed the Congress remarks and said, “those whose whereabouts weren't known for 90 days out of 100, no point commenting on them... They have never seen such development within 100 days.”
