Hitting out at the Prime Minister, Sinha claimed that Modi is known for making false promises and said he continued to do so for 2022, 2024, 2029 even though he is not going to be PM at that time.
Sinha claimed note ban and GST had rendered lakhs of youth jobless, destroyed small and medium traders and brought down factory production by 50 per cent. “I am a persistent critic of Narendra Modi on issues such as the Rafale deal, demonetisation and GST because an arrogant PM did not consult senior party leaders and cabinet ministers on these issues. That is why I resigned from the party and joined the Congress,” he said.
Sinha, who recently shifted from the BJP to Congress, heaped praises on Rahul Gandhi, describing him as “dashing, dynamic and of course charming”.
He predicted that winning the 2019 Lok Sabha would be “impossible” for Modi.
