Ghulam Nabi Azad compares Modi with Muhammad Bin Tughlaq

Shimla, May 16 (UNI) Accusing the NDA government of derailing national economy in last five years, Congress senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad compared Prime Minister Narendra Modi with controversial 14th century Delhi ruler Mohammad Bin Tughlaq.

He was addressing a press conference at Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan state Congress office here today. The hasty implementation of Goods & Service Tax and forced financial emergency demonetisation left the bankrupted national economy under Modi rule, he said .

' As the former Prime Minister reformed and treated national economy like a a trained doctor while the incumbent PM ruined it like an untrained tailor' Mr Azad said.

PM by down away the existing job avenues earned a dubious distinction becoming first such head of the nation as 4.73 Crore people lost their employments due to demonetisation.

Mr Azad said that rate of rural unemployment goes up by 30 per cent. During 2009 Lok Sabha election when Mr Singh reelected for the the top post once again he succeeded to stop the downfall in the export whoever the trades registered slowdown in the rest of the world and plunged by 14 per cent in many countries.

The Agriculture growth rate was about 3.84 per cent in 2013 however it was keeping 1.88 per cent during the BJP rule.

The export of vegetables and other agriculture goods fell down by 90 per cent today .

Only 45 per cent Farmers were brought under PM Crop Insurance Scheme in the country where as rather than relieving farmer this scheme is benefiting Insurance companies as they succeed to earned nearly Rs 3000 Cr from this scheme.

In 2014, BJP announced to provide Rs 50,000 Cr. to irrigation scheme, however it was to released Rs 10,000 in the first year but only Rs 4000 Cr were released and only Rs 2954 Cr were released in 2018.

Modi government miserably failed in the Family welfare and Health services as out of six AIIMS declared by the last UPA government my Health Minister ship could not completed in the last five years.

With completion of necessary budget and MCI approval, last Cong rule also sanctioned three new medical colleges for the state instead of handing over the construction to state owned HPCC ltd. construction was handed over to state Public Works Department and the institutions could became functional.

Rs 45 Cr each were awarded to Cancer Hospital at Mandi and Chamba but could move ahead . He said that Two Rs 120 Cro and Rs 132 Cr projects were allotted to Indra Gandhi Medical Colleges in last UPA rule also remained incomplete in last five years.
