“Prime Minister Narendra Modi resorts to 3-4 things, triple talaq, Article 370, Muslims, Imran Khan to hide his failures.

“It is unfortunate that the prime minister made a reference to Pakistan seven times during his address and accused him of hyphenating India with Pakistan during the last five years,” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said.
Tewari accused Modi of destroying the Indian economy and said the prime minister is covering this up by dividing society through polarisation.
“It is extremely unfortunate and deeply regrettable that the prime minister’s comments oscillated between stand-up comedy, half-truths and rank communalism. It is regrettable that the Prime Minister of India should quote one of his illustrious predecessors Jawaharlal Nehru completely out of context,” he said.
