New Delhi: Former prime minister Manmohan Singh on Monday lashed out at the Narendra Modi-led government, saying it has done a lot which is not in the interest of the nation and has now crossed all limits. He made these remarks at an opposition protest against rising fuel prices.
Bharat Bandh: Modi Govt Has Crossed All Limits, Overthrow It, Manmohan Singh Tells United Oppn
"All political parties should keep their differences aside and work together to fight this government. All opposition parties uniting together here is significant and must be used to bring about a new movement to overthrow despotic Modi rule. The public is tired and angry, farmers are upset and youth are disturbed as they have no jobs. Modi government has not been able to fulfill any promises," he said.
Led by Congress president Rahul Gandhi, various opposition leaders kickstarted a Bharat Bandh on Monday against rising fuel prices.
Gandhi, soon after his return from the Kailash Mansarovar, reached Rajghat and paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi. The bandh began after Gandhi offered holy water from the pilgrimage there.
