PM Modi made tall promises, implementation unthinkable: Manmohan Singh

Congress Plenary Session Former finance minister P Chidambaram addresses the gathering in New Delhi on Sunday

Going a little further, Singh then bashed Modi about severely mismanaging the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, which is worsening day by day. "Those promises have not been fulfilled", Singh said.

Singh, who mostly remains silent, emerged as one of the strong voices against the Modi government especially previous year during the Gujarat assembly elections when he tore into Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Speaking on J&K, Singh said the state was an integral part of India but there should be a recognition of its special problems and the government should try to resolve them. "It is obvious from the fact that our borders are insecure, be it cross border terror or internal".

On Pakistan, Singh said India must recognise it as a neighbour but expressed concern over Islamabad's support to cross-border terrorism. "We must, therefore, warn Pakistan that this is a path which is mutually destructive of peace and prosperity in the sub-continent", he said.

"The BJP government has messed up the economy. Today, we face similar challenges of carrying forward development and social justice", said he. He accused the Prime Minister of claiming to provide two crore jobs, when, in reality, there haven't even been 2 lakhs job allocations.

"I say that not out of arrogance, not out of conceit, I say this because we have done it before and we can do it again", he said.

In other words, Sidhu thinks Rahul Gandhi's Congress will emerge victorious in the 2019 general election, and the party's president with become the Indian prime minister.

The former BJP man's wit was on display during his speech.
