Mocking the grand celebrations planned by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) marking its third anniversary, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday slammed the merrymaking at a time when the condition of the country is only deteriorating.
Rahul tore into the Centre by taking to Twitter and posted screenshots of stories announcing ‘Modi fest’ to mark government’s anniversary and questioned the government of what it was celebrating exactly.
Hitting out at the government over the deteriorating situation of the country, Rahul said, “Youth are struggling to find jobs, farmers are committing suicide & soldiers are dying at the border. What exactly is the govt celebrating?”
Planning for a grand celebration on its third anniversary, the BJP is all set for a humongous 15-day grand merrymaking starting from May 26 to June 15.
The government will also launch a new campaign under the name ‘New India’ on May 25.
Stretching for over a fortnight, the celebration will begin with Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing the nation on May 26 in Guwahati.
The prime minister will then visit four other cities of India. The four cities might be out of these five cities, namely – Bengaluru, Delhi, Jaipur, Kota, Kolkata and Pune.
