Congress on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not including the issue of women’s safety in the 10-point agenda announced by him.

“For a PM who won elections with ‘Women Safety’ as a major plank — surprisingly totally missing from the ’10 Point Agenda’,” AICC general secretary and communication department chairman Ajay Maken tweeted.

The remarks came on a day when Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi visited Badaun in Uttar Pradesh and met family members of the two gang rape victims who were found murdered.

Earlier, the party had attacked Modi over his 10-point governance agenda and termed it “Ten Commandments”. Congress had said the agenda was just an “extraordinary jumble” and has nothing to write home about the vision of BJP government. “We have been waiting for a vision from BJP government, we have instead been rewarded with diversion of the Ten Commandments…this 10-point agenda.

“I have been taken aback by the extraordinary jumble they have inflicted upon the nation,” party spokesman Shashi Tharoor had told reporters.

    How the stand of BJP changes when they are in Opposition and in power Abki baar U-Turn Sarkar, The INC is not at all worried with this merger as it believes that the united and undivided people of India would strongly vote for them only. TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu has declared that his party has decided to join the NDA fold amid protests from cadres of TDP and BJP with the sole intention of routing the UPA.

    How the stand of BJP changes when they are in Opposition and in power Abki baar U-Turn Sarkar, Venkaih Nidu, Sushma Swaraj. How within a period of few months everything has turned upsides down for them. I will not be surprised Uma, Kalyan and Ramdev Ma will meet the same fate in not so distant future.

    Thanku Rahul kanwal for the Super coverage on Smriti's fake affidavits, Badaun's Rape and Pune vandalism, In past, I think Priyenka hi involvement in the election campaign will surely bring something positivity. One can always trust the Congress. She pla an important role in shaping the respectful image of the Congress party.

    Time for PM Modi to extend to CM Yadav the Raj Dharmaadvice and ask him to take substantive, decisive action in Badaun. NaMo says he works for people. But he has sold off Gujarat petrochemical industry to Reliance. Mukesh Ambani’s brother-in-law, Saurabh Patel is Minister of Petrochemicals in Gujarat.

RT if you agree, Advani inadvertently and subconsciously often speaks his heart out. Advani heart of heart also knows that Narendra Modi is not the right man for the country. But as of present times he cannot help but talk good about Modi. Modi is trying his best to back him.

Whatever may be the case with INC it has by and large fulfilled its promises. Inflation is something that could not be controlled. But no other government could have either controlled inflation. This election is a make fool exercise. There has been growth and development in BJP ruled states though they boost a lot about it. Akalis are the same. They made big promises to the people of Punjab all still remain to see the light of the day.
