Mumbai : The Congress on Monday said that the two biggest challenges confronting the country are inflation and unemployment and alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed on both counts.
Ahead of the Congress’ protest in New Delhi on September 4, party spokesperson Pawan Khera said that the Modi government has completely lacked in providing any relief to the masses on these two fronts which has made life miserable for them.
“While the people suffer under inflation, the Modi regime is busy diverting public attention by resorting to religious and communal issues. Today, there is no other ‘wave’ in the country except inflation, worry and disappointment at the government,” he said.
Flanked by state leaders like Atul Londe, Charanjit Singh Sapra, Raju Waghmare and others, he slammed the Centre for not even showing the courage to face its failures on these issues, and instead making “false claims” regarding inflation figures.
At a media interaction, citing data of the Congress-led UPA Government headed by Manmohan Singh vis-a-vis the Modi regime, Khera said it clearly shows how inflation has shot up dramatically with a huge increase in the prices of all essentials.

The UPA never allowed the prices of petrol to cross Rs 75 when the international crude oil price was $107/barrel. Today, though crude oil prices have fallen to $97/barrel, petrol and diesel in India are above Rs 100/litre,” he said.
