When will there be an appraisal of PM Modi's performance, asks Congress

Posted by :- Manoj Sharma

The Congress says the exercise is not driven by performance or governance but meant for "distribution of the spoils of power" and "adjustment" of defectors. Surjewala said if the cabinet expansion is to be done on the basis of performance, then the prime minister should have been the first one to be removed for his failures in providing governance. "The present cabinet expansion is not performance or governance driven, but is a distribution of spoils of power and defectors adjustment programme," he told reporters."Overall, this cabinet expansion is not a performance appraisal. It is only a means of serving the interests of their allies and not for the country. But when will there be an appraisal of PM Modi's performance who brought the nation to the brink of poverty after turning away from its responsibility in the Corona epidemic," he asked. - PTI
