The Congress party countered Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comments against its poll manifesto on Sunday and said Modi was saying baseless things out of desperation.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh tweeted, “The Congress Party's five Nyay and 25 guarantees are creating a new hope among the people of India after 10 years of injustice. The Congress guarantee is the need of the hour. This is the voice of the suffering people of the country. Frightened by this guarantee card, the Prime Minister is saying baseless things in his desperation to save his position.” 

Ramesh said people are tired of prime minister’s lies and he would have to go on a long action after the polls. “The people of India are now tired of the lies of the Prime Minister. After June 4, he will have to go on a long vacation. This is the guarantee of the people of India!” he said. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Congress’s poll manifesto and said it sounded like that of Muslim League. “The manifesto that the Congress has released bears the imprint of the Muslim League. It has not released a poll manifesto but a declaration of appeasement," charged Modi during a poll rally in Bihar on Sunday.
