Manmohan Singh launched a scathing attack on the Narendra Modi led NDA Government at the Congress Party's plenary session in Delhi on Sunday.

"The ill-thought and the ill-considered legislation with regard to demonetisation and hastily put forward legislation for GST have destroyed many jobs".

Citing the reasons for the problems in the state, Manmohan Singh said that "it is obvious from the fact that our borders are not secure, whether it is the cross-border terrorism or internal terrorism, internal insurgency. The atmosphere in the state is deteriorating day in and day out". He also criticized the government' policy on Pakistan saying it is not serious about addressing the issue.

Condemning the cross-border terrorism support provided by Pakistan, Manmohan Singh also said that India must warn it against this path and to instead sort out issues peacefully.

Earlier in the day, senior Congress leader Anand Sharma had said that the PM is getting carried away by his own propaganda.

On the last day of the 84th Congress plenary, slogans of "Priyanka Gandhi zindabad" were raised along with "Rahul Gandhi zindabad" at the Indira Gandhi Indoor stadium in the national capital. The Punjab leader said Singh was both "sardar" and "asardar" (effective), letting out his trademark Sidhuisms while adding he had redeemed himself at the veteran's feet.

The organization said it is now clear that Haspel was not in charge of the base until after Zubaydah's interrogation was finished. The former Deputy CIA head has operated " black site " prisons and drafted orders to destroy evidence that would reveal torture.

He said that Pakistan should be delivered a firm message about the active role it plays in cross-border terrorism, and that this is not acceptable to India. Indicating the tensions inherent in the alliance of the BJP and PDP, parties with a huge ideological gap, Dr Singh said: "They have installed a government where the two wings of the administration are working against each other".

"We have not seen even two lakh jobs".

Shortly after Dr. Singh's remarks, former minister P Chidambaram said that PM Modi had inherited a strong economy but today the Indian economy is decoupled from the growing global economy.

The Congress had helped create an atmosphere conducive for talks, he added.

"The number of people below poverty line went up, it is the greatest disservice the BJP government did to the people of India".
