Modi Govt mismanaged Kashmir, says Manmohan Sing

Singh accused the Modi-led government of messing up the economy through its ill-considered demonetisation policy and the Goods and Services Tax legislation, which he said was "hastily put forward".

When a BJP MP, Sidhu had called Manmohan Singh a "Pappu PM" and said he doesn't know if the former PM is a Sardar or not. "The atmosphere in the state has been deteriorating day by day", he said. "Our borders are insecure, be it cross-border terror or internal".

"Issues which are the source of great worry to all our citizens and the Modi government has not found ways and means of tackling with this problem, which probably feel that these issues can probably be sorted out by themselves".

"That's not going to happen", the Congress leader said.

On the last day of the 84th Congress plenary, slogans of "Priyanka Gandhi zindabad" were raised along with "Rahul Gandhi zindabad" at the Indira Gandhi Indoor stadium in the national capital.

Sidhu said, "I want to apologise to Sardar Manmohan Singh with my head hanging down..."

And Jones rapped: "Some players will struggle to participate in the future". I'm sure we'll go away to South Africa and you'll see a response".

Former Indian premier Manmohan Singh on Sunday held the right-wing Narendra Modi-led government responsible for the worsening situation in India-held Kashmir (IHK), NDTV reported.

He, however, added that Pakistan's support for anti-India terrorist groups was not acceptable.

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram criticized the BJP's economic performance, saying it inherited a "strong economy" which "started in 1990s when Rajiv Gandhi sowed seeds of liberalization". He said that if the BJP comes to power it will provide two crore jobs, we have not seen even two lakh jobs. "We must, therefore, warn Pakistan that this is a path which is mutually destructive of peace and prosperity in the subcontinent", he said. Two crore jobs per annum is one of those promises which is again a pipe dream mooted by the Modi government, he said.

The Congress had helped create an atmosphere conducive for talks, he added.

The BJP-PDP alliance - made necessary by the fractured mandate in the state following the 2015 assembly elections - has been under strain over various issues on which the two parties have widely divergent views.
