Pasighat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday tore into the Congress, terming its manifesto as a "hypocrisy document" which was "full of lies".
Addressing his second rally in Arunachal Pradesh within a week, the prime minister cited the Congress manifesto for the 2004 Lok Sabha elections, and said it had promised that every house would have electricity by 2009.
एक तरफ इरादों वाली सरकार है, दूसरी तरफ सिर्फ और सिर्फ झूठे वादों वाले नामदार हैं।— BJP (@BJP4India) April 3, 2019
इन लोगों की तरह ही इनका घोषणा पत्र भी भष्ट होता है, बेइमान होता है, ढकोसलों से भरा होता है।
इसलिए उसे घोषणा पत्र नहीं 'ढकोसला पत्र' कहना चाहिए: प्रधानमंत्री श्री @narendramodi #DeshKeLiyeModi pic.twitter.com/W43d1oI6Rb
"However, till 2014 around 18,000 houses were unelectrified... Just like them (the Congress), their manifesto is corrupt and full of lies. Therefore, it should be called hypocrisy document, not a manifesto," Modi said.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi Tuesday released his party's manifesto for Lok Sabha polls, making jobs creation, addressing farm distress, bringing a single moderate rate of GST and giving Rs 72,000 per annum to poor families as key focus if the party comes to power.
The prime minister also charged that the Congress was fooling farmer in the name of votes, whereas the BJP government has always been with them.

ये भरोसे और भ्रष्टाचार के बीच का चुनाव है।
ये आपकी सांस्कृतिक विरासत, परंपरा, आपके गौरव की रक्षा करने वालों और आपके परिधानों, आपकी परंपराओं का मजाक उड़ाने वालों के बीच का चुनाव है: पीएम #DeshKeLiyeModi pic.twitter.com/ma6XLb0XdG
"We never committed the sin of betraying farmers but we introduced the mechanism from seed to market," the PM said.
Modi said the upcoming Lok Sabha polls will be about the choice between "trust and corruption, and about resolution and conspiracy".
Simultaneous elections to the Lok Sabha and the state assembly will be held on April 11. (PTI)
