New Delhi: The Congress Party on Thursday hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for labelling the opposition as ‘hawalabaaz’ and said that 125 crore people of the nation will decide who is a traitor, as he has failed to fulfil the promises made during the Lok Sabha polls.

What happened to the fake promise of Prime Minister Modi ahead of the Lok Sabha elections of depositing Rs. 15 lakhs into everyone’s account after bringing back black money stashed abroad, Surjewala told media here.

What happened to the promise made to farmers of giving 50 % profit of the cost? And now after coming to power, he has brought the 70 crore farmers on the verge of committing suicide. The 125 crore people of this nation will decide who is a traitor, he added.

Earlier in the day, Modi took a jibe at Congress party for not allowing passage of GST bill and said that the ‘hawalabaaz’ are putting roadblocks.
