INDIA bloc will form govt, pick PM, says Kharge | India News

SHIMLA: Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge claimed on Saturday that INDI Alliance would form a govt at the Centre after June 4, and alliance leaders would then choose the prime minister.
Alleging that the Narendra Modi govt is “misusing” constitutional institutions, Kharge said Congress is fighting against BJP’s ideology of dividing the country along Hindu and Muslim lines.
“People are fed up with Modi govt as unemployment and inflation are rising,” he said at an election rally in Rohru under Shimla Lok Sabha seat.
He accused Modi of neglecting Himachal Pradesh during last year’s disaster when the Centre refused the state govt’s demand for Rs 9,900 crore assistance.
Kharge alleged that the PM is afraid of China, claiming that it encroached on India’s land and the Modi govt did nothing.
He also raised Agniveer scheme, claiming that Congress govts provided permanent jobs and pensions in the military. He said BJP govts abolished old pension scheme.
