Congress president Sonia Gandhi Monday slammed the Centre over rising prices after seeking opinion of villagers in her constituency, Rae Bareli, on whether they felt inflation has gone down in the 100 days of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government.
“Mehngai kam hui kya (has inflation gone down?” she asked locals while going village-to-village collecting applications and listening to their problems.
Stating that villagers were a better judge of Modi’s 100 days and the promises he had made, she asked them: “Jawab do, kaise rahe yeh din? Kya vayede pure hue? Kya mehngai kam hui?(Answer me, how have been these days? Have promises been fulfilled? Has inflation gone down?).”

As villagers in Harchandpur block of Rae Bareli started narrating how rates of food items were going up, Sonia, talking to The Indian Express said, “This is the actual truth of 100 days of NDA government. They made many promises but fulfilled none”.
This is Sonia’s first visit to villages of her constituency after Lok Sabha elections. During an earlier visit, she had spent just a few hours thanking party workers for her victory.
Asked if Congress needed to become more aggressive in UP, Sonia said, “We should become more aggressive everywhere. We are gradually picking up in UP.”
Sonia went door-to-door in five villages asking locals, especially women, about their problems. She started from Tanda village in Harchandpur block that gave her maximum votes during Lok Sabha elections. Villagers complained that for the past few months, they were hardly getting two to three hours of electricity in a day and even for these hours, the schedule was not regular.
