2019 general elections: Congress manifesto full of lies, says Modi

Pasighat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today tore into the Congress, terming its manifesto as a “hypocrisy document” which was “full of lies”.

Addressing his second rally in Arunachal Pradesh within a week, he cited the Congress manifesto for the 2004 Lok Sabha elections, and said it had promised that every house would have electricity by 2009.

“However, till 2014, around 18,000 houses were not electrified… Just like them (the Congress), their manifesto is corrupt and full of lies. Therefore, it should be called hypocrisy document, not a manifesto,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister also charged that the Congress was fooling farmers in the name of votes, whereas the BJP government has always been with them.
