Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said he (Modi) likes to make speeches but not to work. “It is only the Congress and SP governments which work.”

“He had promised to provide jobs to 2 lakh youths but that has not happened,” he said, adding that on November 8 he got an idea and in his ‘mann ki baat’ on TV at 8 PM he told farmers and labourers that “today I make your hard earned money, in the form of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, in your pockets a “trash”.

“He said that he is fighting a war against black money and made everyone stand in queues before the banks where no suited booted person was present,” he said.

The black money of the country is in the form of real estate, land, gold and in Swiss banks of the rich, while he was busy in getting the money of the farmers and labourers deposited in the banks,” he said.

Now, Modi government is promoting cashless society which is beyond the understanding of poor, farmers and labourers and is thus proving to be unsuccessful, he claimed, adding if he can do anything in the remaining time he can waive loans of poor farmers.
