The Congress party on Sunday attacked the Narendra Modi government over its performance in its first 100 days. In a video, which was shared on Congress' Twitter handle, the party hit out at government highlighting various issues such as growing unemployment, mob lynchings, falling GDP, the Kashmir dispute as well as amendments to the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

Congress said that the period can be described in three words - "tyranny, chaos and anarchy".

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi also took a shot at the government using the hashtag #100DaysNoVikas. 

The Wayanad MP tweeted, "Congratulations to the Modi Govt on #100DaysNoVikas, the continued subversion of democracy, a firmer stranglehold on a submissive media to drown out criticism and a glaring lack of leadership, direction & plans where it’s needed the most - to turnaround our ravaged economy."

"Tyranny, Chaos And Anarchy"

Congress shared some figures on twitter in an attempt to show how the first 100 days of this governemnt has resulted in an economic slump.

"Three words that describe the first 100 days of BJP 2.0 - tyranny, chaos and anarchy," the Congress said.

"Eight sectors have recorded a growth rate below 2 per cent and our Finance Minister still refuses to accept that our economy is in free fall. If the BJP continues this path of negligence & deceit, we are headed towards recession," the party said.

A steep fall in the GDP from last year is a direct result of the government's ignorance and "gross mismanagement" of economy, the Congress alleged in a series of tweets.

"By disregarding voices of the industry, economists & former PM Dr (Manmohan) Singh, BJP has proved itself to be completely incompetent in handling the economy," said one of the tweets.

"The automobile sector is facing its worst-ever crisis in years and all the government has to say our economy is doing better than US and China," the party said.

"The solution to problems comes with acknowledging them first, which this government has failed to do," it said.

Congress takes shot at BJP over arrest of leaders

"BJP Politics 101: When all else fails, arrest high profile Opposition leaders & hope the public doesn't notice you have failed in every field," the party alleged.

Congress also claimed that the BJP treats "Parliament like a notice board" as bills are not debated or discussed but presented just to complete a formality.

"This is a sign of a weakening democracy," the Congress said in another tweet with the hashtag '100 Days No Vikas'.
