Congress descends to new low, attacks PM Modi on his birthday

Congress has descended to a new low in Indian politics. Earlier, politicians used to show decency and avoided attacking leaders on personal occasions such as birthdays.

However, Congress has breached that barrier and shown utter lack of decency today through the negative and devious political discourse, by trying to ‘celebrate’ the day as National Unemployment Day and continuing other vicious malafide attacks as well.

The nation is celebrating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday, as he turns 70 today. Majority of the leaders have praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government in their efforts to combat the COVID-19 crisis.

PM Modi is credited with the fact that he was probably the first political leader who understood the importance of social distancing and took ‘tough and timely’ measures to make people aware of the severity of COVID-19 by imposing subsequent lockdowns across the country. However, the Congress party is busy launching attacks on PM Modi on microblogging site Twitter by creating different hashtags.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is among the leaders who hit out at the Centre over the growing rate of unemployment in India amid the economic crisis.

In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said, “Massive unemployment has forced the youth to call today #NationalUnemploymentDay. Employment is dignity. For how long will the Govt deny it?”
