NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday criticised the Congress for "not cooperating with the government" in implementing reforms in the country and said the opposition party had not been able to digest defeat in 2014 general elections.
"We had hoped that the Congress will work with us, help parliament in enforcing (fiscal) reforms but 'ek hai jo manta nahi' (there is one who does not agree). The Congress has not been able to digest defeat (in Lok Sabha elections)," Modi said in his address to the BJP workers in Bhopal before inaugurating the 10th Vishwa Hindi Sammelan.
Assuring the people of India about fulfilling their dreams, the prime minister said, "I appeal to those defeated and rejected by the people to please let the nation move ahead."
"Every political party must leave no stone unturned to meet public expectations if it won and also introspect in case of defeat," he added.
