Congress leader Anand Sharma on Tuesday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for comparing Gorakhpur hospital tragedy with other natural calamities. He said,”Prime minister should have been careful over sensitive issues.”
While talking to reporters over Prime Minister’s Independence Day speech, Sharma said PM talked about the surgical strike which had taken place almost a year ago and since then several ceasefire violations and repeated attacks took place in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Congress leader said PM Modi was making tall claims on GST, but it was the BJP which had stalled GST for seven years in the Parliament when the saffron party was in the opposition.
He said the opposition played important role in passing of GST and it allowed it with amendments. He said they did not expect that Modi would ignore the issue and suddenly sought cooperation on the same.
