The Arunachal Pradesh unit of Congress on Wednesday hit out at the Narendra Modi government accusing it of having a “backyard policy” of promoting 50 corporate families to “channelise” their black money and befooling the poor.
AICC secretary and in-charge of party’s state unit K Jayakumar described Prime Minister Modi as “anti-people” during a party meeting held here.
“Modi was elected on his aid campaign of ‘Acche Din’ for ‘Aam Aadmi’, but his backyard policy of promoting 50 families of the country among the corporate sector have rather prompted to channelise their black money earned in various sectors as overseas investment and real estate business befooling the poor people,” Jayakumar said.
The state unit of Congress has formulated strategies for its anti-demonetisation campaign against the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre, a party release said.
Rajya Sabha MP Ranee Narah, who is also the AICC coordinator for Arunachal, suggested constituting a state-level campaign committee with former minister Tako Dabi as its chairman for a pan-India campaign.
He additionally asked the state unit to coordinate with AICC for nation-wide protest against demonetisation and anti-people policies of the Modi government, it said.
Congress state unit president Padi Richo has directed all its members to remain united while fighting against demonetisation as per the programme set by AICC, the statement said.
Former Chief Minister Nabam Tuki questioned Modi for failing in all his commitments before he was elected.
