Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said as Congress "never walked the talk", their strength in the Parliament has shrunk to less than 100. He further said Congress always made false promises regarding poverty eradication, farm loan waiver, among others. "In states like UP and Bihar...they're piggybacking other parties for survival," he added, while addressing a rally in Bihar's Araria.
Prime Minister Modi said, "The Congress does not even have a total of 100 MPs in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha...The public still punishes them whenever there is a chance." PM Modi added, "Look at what condition the public has put Congress party in."
