Ahmedabad, May 26 : The Congress on Thursday lashed out at the Narendra Modi-led government for what it said was failure on all counts, as Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel called the opposition leaders a bunch of “copycats and blockheads”.

Congress leader Manish Tewari told reporters in Ahmedabad that the Modi government had failed on parameters of internal security, economy, foreign policy, communal harmony and upholding the principles of federalism.

“We want to ask the prime minister as to how he has been able to better the life of the common man in the last two years? This is the basic question the prime minister needs to answer. You promised ‘achhe din’ and ‘Sabka saath sabka vikas’,” Tewari said.

He listed out what he called Modi government’s failure, including intolerance, attack on federalism in Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh. “If he had an iota of shame, he would have resigned the day courts made observations against the way the central government had tried to upstage the Uttarakhand government,” Tewari said.

Calling Modi’s foreign policy a ‘sair sapata’ (fun travel), the Congress leader said India had achieved nothing from Modi’s frequent foreign travels.
