Modi government has failed on all fronts : Former PM Manmohan Singh

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday during the launch of book of Senior Congress leader Kapil Sinal "Shadees oof Truth - a journey derailed" said the Modi government had failed on all fronts - economic, agrarian and relations with neighbours - and people were not impressed by official claims of development. 

"The government has not constructively dealt with the agrarian crisis facing the nation. Farmers are still not assured of receiving the remunerative prices of their produce" singh added. 

Singh said Sibal's book was a comprehensive analysis of the functioning of the Modi government in the last four years.  Singh further added "It highlights the failure of this government to fulfil promises made to the people on the eve of 2014 Lok Sabha elections."

Referring to the PM's 2014 promise of providing two crore jobs per year, Singh said the employment groowth rate has been declining in the last four years.
