PATNA: Top Opposition leaders including Sonia Gandhi today lashed out at the Narendra Modi government for "doing nothing other than 'show-baazi'" by slashing allocations to all major social security schemes like MGNREGA.

Addressing the 'Swabhiman Rally' here along with top leaders of JD(U), RJD and SP, Gandhi said "Modi-government has completed one-fourth of its time. Till now, what has it done other than ‘show-baazi’..It has done nothing. You know better than me."

She attacked the BJP-led regime for not fulfilling its promise to provide employment to one crore people but also restricting job opportunities in the government and said the funds for major social security schemes like MGNREGA have been "heavily slashed".

Targeting Modi for his DNA remarks, Gandhi said the Prime Minister has demeaned Bihar and shown its people in a bad light. "Some people take pleasure in mocking Bihar. Whenever they get opportunity they comment about its DNA and culture. They also call it BIMARU," she said.

On government's decision to allow Land Bill to lapse, Gandhi said that Modi had to bow to people's will by giving up the ordinance.

"This is an anti-farmer government. They want to grab their land and distribute it among their rich friends. We fought for the protection of farmers' rights in the Parliament and in the end government had to bow down," she asserted.

Present on the dais were Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, RJD chief Lalu Prasad, JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav and SP leader Shivpal Yadav, among others.
