Sachin Pilot accuses Modi of ‘double-speak’
Accusing Indian prime minister Narendra Modi of double-speak on the issue of food inflation and price rise, the Congress on Sunday said the PM and the party spoke in a different voice when they were in opposition.
Underlining that this is a government which has come in with a clear majority, Congress leader and former union minister Sachin Pilot said, ‘There is no reason why they can’t take strong steps that a 56-inch chest thumping prime minister had promised’.
Pilot also took a dig at Modi saying that while he was taking credit for the PSLV-C23 rocket launch and Katra train link which had come to fruition due to Congress government that worked on it for 10 years, he was blaming the food inflation on them.
‘This is double speak,’ Pilot said in an interview to PTI adding that Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) won the election on the plank of high inflation.
He said that once BJP took over the government, they have realised that there are certain things that even they can’t control.
