Meanwhile, opposition leaders questioned the president’s speech, terming it an “BJP election manifesto.”
Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi told ANI, “The President speaks what the government asks her to speak… 10 years ago, PM Modi spoke of employment, inflation, corruption, and farmers’ income. The president has never spoken on any of these issues… The price rise is increasing, unemployment is increasing, and the farmers are miserable…”
Congress MP K Suresh said, “The President’s address is only for the BJP election manifesto. Whatever the BJP wants to campaign for in the forthcoming election, that was said in the house…”
