Development is a joke for Congress, says Modi

"For Congress, the country's development is a joke. If the government gives free gas connections for women, they make fun of it. The Opposition is shedding crocodile tears. All the work done for the poor, its all a joke to them, and they make fun of it. Today the people of India is watching how for political gain, the Congress tells lies to the Supreme Court. Be it about the SC/ST law or reservation, they try to manipulate people by spreading rumours. 

They are spreading rumours among farmers that 18 percent GST will be levied if they lease their land. A party, which has repeatedly lost elections, has the audacity to spread such rumours. Register complaint against them, and the law will take action against them," the prime minister said.
