Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Sunday alleged that the Narendra Modi government mismanaged the situation in Jammu and Kashmir â€œlike never beforeâ€.
Speaking at the Congressâ€™ 84th plenary session, being held in New Delhi, Mammohan Singh said that the situation in the Valley was worsening by the day.
â€œThe Modi government has mismanaged issues in Jammu and Kashmir like never before. They have installed a government where the two wings of the administration are working against each other. The atmosphere is deteriorating,â€ he said asserting that the country must recognise the â€œproblems in Jammu and Kashmirâ€ to ensure that these problems are â€œtackled and sorted.â€
â€œThe atmosphere is deteriorating day in and day out, itâ€™s obvious from the fact that our borders are insecure, be it cross border terror or internal,â€ he added.
Taking up several issues in hand, senior Congress leader Singh launched a sharp attack on the BJP-led NDA government.
â€œThe BJP government made tall promises. PM Modi himself said that his government will double farmersâ€™ income. For that, a growth rate of 12 per cent per annum is necessary which is unthinkable in the current scenario,â€ Singh said.
â€œBJP-led government messed up Indian economyâ€¦ He (Modi) said we will provide 2 crore jobs, we have not seen even 2 lakh jobsâ€¦ It is a jumla-type statement unlikely to be achieved,â€ he added.
