News Desk: BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Subramaniam Swamy on Thursday came down heavily on the Modi government, stating that it had failed in nearly every aspect of governance. His statement came just a day after he met West Bengal CM and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee.
He said that the Modi government had failed in the fields of economy and border security. He called the Centre’s handling of the Afghanistan crisis a ‘fiasco’. He also seemed to blame the Union government for the Pegasus data security breach.
On internal security, he said Kashmir was in a state of ‘gloom’ under the present government.
On Wednesday, he praised West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, comparing her with the likes of political stalwarts like Jayaprakash Narayan, Morarji Desai, Rajiv Gandhi, Chandrashekhar, and P V Narasimha Rao. He tweeted that she “meant what she said and said what she meant”. “In Indian politics that is a rare quality” he said.
Of late, Subramanian Swamy has been critical of the Modi government on social media. He was dropped from the BJP’s national executive committee last month.
