Agartala: CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi over “tall promises” but no results. He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a number of tall promises but did not keep them.

While addressing an election meeting at Jolaibari in South Tripura district, Yechury also claimed that Modi is pro-corporate.”What about his promises on unearthing black money and bringing back huge amounts of money stashed abroad by big capitalists?” he asked.

Yechury said that the Modi government is making rich corporate richer and poor people are becoming more poor because of the policies adopted by this government. He raised the issue of unemployment. He also raised the problems of unemployment, farmers’ suicide and oppression of Dalits in the country and expressed grave concern over efforts to divide people along religious lines.

Yechury said that if BJP manage to win the next Lok Sabha election, it will be a disaster for the country. He said,”Unless this government is removed from the Centre in the next election, the country will be in a dire state.”
