Major opposition parties of India came together today to observe a countrywide strike – Bharat Bandh – against the government of Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi led the strike against unprecedented inflation – including rising petrol and diesel prices – under Modi government. Reports suggest that as a result of the Bharat Bandh, many businesses, government offices, and schools were shut down in many parts of India.

“Always remember that the Sangh Brotherhood (RSS) is afraid of the united voice of Indians and on 10th September, 2018, India is speaking in a united, coherent and rousing voice: Bharat Bandh!,” Congress tweeted with a hashtag #MehangiPadiModiSarkar.

Congress – which has positioned itself as a true Hindu national party – has stepped up its campaign to highlight the failures of the Modi government.

“The Modi government has completely failed in keeping its promises to the people of India. The need of the hour is for different parties to set aside their differences and come together,” said the former Prime Minister (PM) and Congress leader Dr Manmohan Singh.

In a hard-hitting speech delivered last week, Dr Manmohan Singh said that the Modi government has failed on all fronts. He counted a number of social and economic areas in which the Modi government has almost destroyed the country in over 4 years of its rule.

While Congress and other opposition parties have joined hands to defeat Modi’s BJP in the upcoming State Assembly elections and Lok Sabha election, they are also worried that as usual BJP will win elections by tempering with the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).

Congress believes that an alliance of opposition parties can easily defeat BJP which received only 31% of total votes in the last Lok Sabha election of 2014.
