“Mr Modi's lies has destroyed India's societal fabric, and economy; trembling upon constitutional institutions, and the rights of individuals, snatching livelihood and shutting down business, we expected that in 2019 you will express regrets for the blunders of the policy that you have committed, but you have only peddled lies, and its indeed unfortunate”, Mr Surjewala said.

Farmer distress and farmer suicides rule the roost".
He also took up the black money issue and reminded that the Prime Minister had promised to bring back 80 lakh crore black money stashed in offshore and asked, “Did it come, did India get benefit of that. The truth is that not a single rupee could be brought back”.
On Demonetisation, the Congress spokesperson said , “The nation wants to know the demonetisation disaster.. 12O people died in bank lines. People lost all their earnings. Women of India lost their entire 'istri dhan'. Yet you continue to justify the demonetisation scam and disaster".
