Modi 2.0, 1st yr: Amit Shah's '6 yrs, 6 decades' dig at Congress

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi corrected 'many historical wrongs' in the last six years, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, taking a veiled jibe at the Congress.

In a tweet - posted to mark the first anniversary of the second term of the National Democratic Alliance government led by PM Modi - Amit Shah also thanked "crores of BJP workers", who have been the party's "door-to-door messengers" over the last six years.

"I congratulate PM Modi for a historical year that witnessed several achievements. I am confident that under your able and visionary leadership, India will continue to progress like this," the 55-year-old senior BJP leader wrote in an apparent reference to the government's decisions such as scrapping of Jammu and Kashmir's special status, new citizenship law, among others. 

Taking a veiled dig at the Congress-ruled governments in the past, he tweeted: "During the last six years, Modi ji not only corrected many historical wrongs... he also has filled up the vacuum that was created in the last six decades to create a foundation for self-reliant India. Last six years of governance has set a phenomenal example for the welfare of poor."

"I bow down to the people of the country who elected him and contributed in the country's progress," he said.

The BJP's messengers have been spreading information about government's achievements and public welfare schemes door-to-door, he wrote in another tweet. Desk: Asianet Online
