NEW DELHI: The Prime Minister’s Red Fort speech would have struck Gold if there was a medal for the “most boring” public speech at Olympics, the Aam Aadmi Party said today as it attacked the Centre for lack of intent and policy.
Attacking the government over varied issues ranging from the policy on Jammu and Kashmir to assault on Dalits, AAP leader Ashutosh said PM Modi’s speech was “uninspiring and directionless”.
“If at all Olympics had a medal for the most boring public speech then Prime Minister Narendra Modi would have received gold,” Delhi Culture Minister Kapil Mishra said.
Referring to a picture in which cameras caught Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s eyes shut at Red Fort, Deputy Chief Manish Sisodia said it seems that Prime Minister Modi’s speech was really “boring”.Pictures also showed senior ministers Arun Jaitley and Manohar Parrikar with their eyes closed.
“It is because of the lack of intent and policy which is why Kashmir is burning, Pakistan entered our home and hit us and (the promise of bringing back) black money has been forgotten.
“Decisions are not being taken because the intent is not right. Haryana was burning and violence is being perpetrated in the name of cow worship. There is no action against attack on Dalits, farmers are committing suicide and the new education policy has become a rhetoric.
“It is due to lack of intent and policy that judges are not being appointed,” Mr Sisodia alleged in a series of tweets.
Ashutosh alleged that under PM Modi’s rule, the Chief Justice of India is “weeping, intellectuals are resigning from their posts, journalists are under fear and governments are being dismissed.”
