Congress poses four questions to PM Modi before his oath-taking ceremony


Following the outcomes of the Lok Sabha polls, the Congress party on Thursday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his commitment to granting special category status to the states of Andhra Pradesh and Bihar.

Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh took a jibe at the current administration, dubbing it the “Modi 1/3 government”. In a video shared on X, Ramesh directed four pointed questions at the Prime Minister, focusing on promises made during previous election campaigns.

“Our four questions to the one-third Prime Minister who is going to be elected.

On 30 April 2014, in the holy city of Tirupati, you promised to give special status to Andhra Pradesh. Will that promise be fulfilled now?

Will you stop the privatization of Visakhapatnam Steel Plant now?

Will you fulfil your 2014 election promise and the ten-year-old demand of your ally Nitish Kumar by giving special state status to Bihar?

Do you promise to conduct a caste census in the entire country like Bihar?” senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh posted on ‘X’.
