New Delhi, Sep 13: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the Congress party failed to play the role of opposition after its 2014 defeat. PM Modi made the statement while addressing the booth level workers of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from Jaipur (Rural), Nawada, Ghaziabad, Hazaribagh and Arunachal West parliamentary constituencies via NaMo app.

"In last four years, the truth of Congress and its associates have been revealed. Earlier, the public removed them from power due to their failure to deliver good governance, inefficiency to take decision and corruption. Now, they've failed to play the role of opposition," PM Modi said while interacting with BJP workers from five Lok Sabha constituencies. Narendra Modi to Celebrate His 68th Birthday on September 17 in Varanasi, Preparations Underway.

"If Congress and its associates had worked together since last four years and brought issues before the public, people would have at least believed them. But they were least bothered in the last four years. Now that elections are approaching, they've come together," the prime minister added, calling the united front of opposition parties an 'opportunistic alliance'.

Speaking on surgical strikes, PM Modi said some opposition, out of their hate for the BJP, raised questions over Army's operation against Pakistan. "In their opposition of BJP and Modi, some opposition leaders lost their minds and raised questions over the Army," the prime minister said.
