New Delhi,
Feb 07. Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge today accused the
government of using the President’s address to the joint session of Parliament
for political “gains” and dubbed it a compilation of Prime Minister
Narendra Modi’s speeches in rallies.

Speaking in
the Lok Sabha on the motion of thanks to the President’s address, Kharge
criticised the government’s actions like demonestisation, GST implementation
and the Rafale fighter jet deal and said that the BJP came to power in 2014 by
“misleading the people which it is still continuing”.

“This
was not President’s address. It was a compilation of Prime Minister’s speeches
in rallies. Here is a Prime Minister who never listens to anyone but keeps
talking about himself. The use of President’s address for political gains shows
that how low this government can stoop to save its deteriorating
reputation,” he said.

He alleged
that the government was not only weakening Constitutional institutions but trying
to finish them day after day.

“This
government is not working according to the Constitution. Issues are not being
discussed in the Cabinet. Whatever Modiji says, that happens,” he said
referring to the Constitution amendment Bill that provides 10 per cent
reservation for economically poor among general categories.

Kharge said
that even as the Bill was taken up in the Lok Sabha for discussion and passing
in an unstarred reply in Paliament, the Minister concerned had denied that the
government has any proposal to provide reservation for the poor among upper
castes.

He said that
it pained him when the President, in his address, compared the work done by the
Modi government and the previous governments.

“At
least give us the credit for our work. But you won’t give us credit because you
are full of hatred. Despite our doing so much work, you allege every now and
then that nothing has happened in last 60 years,” the Congress leader
said.

He listed
the Congress’s achievements in the form of reducing illiteracy and infant
mortality rate while it took several measures like green revolution,
establishing educational institutions and many other pioneering measures.

Kharge said
the Congress governments in the past had done everything to save the country
and the democracy while the BJP-led government has been misleading the youth.

“We
developed this country as self-dependent, competent and one with self respect.
We strengthened the democracy and saved the country. You came in power by
making false promises but you did not stop here. You are continuously lying.
Because it has been in your habit,” he said.

Kharge
slammed the government on demonestisation and the GST

Referring to
issues of demonestisation and the GST, Kharge slammed the government
saying the two decisions broke the back of the farmers, labourers and the small
and medium businessmen.

He also
raised the issue of Rafale fighter jet deal and demanded a joint
parliamentary probe
into it.

Hitting out
at government over the farmers’ plight across the country, he said it did
nothing for the farmers in the last five years.

“Why
are you not writing off the farmers’ loans when you can waive Rs 1.10
lakh crore of loans of industrialists. You did nothing for the farmers. You did
not even implement the promises for them. Now, when you are going to face
elections, you are trying to give them something. But this is not going to
work,” he said.
