LIE: Be it land, education or forest produce, my government has done a lot for the tribals


Modi Lies

The facts state that exactly opposite of this has happened under Modi’s tenure. Various provisions of the FRA (Forest Rights Act) have been diluted. The most important one being the condition of “free informed consent” from gram sabhas for any government plans to remove tribals from forests and for resettlement or rehabilitation packages.

LIE: A special fund of Rs. 7500 crores has been set up under the Blue Revolution scheme under which the fisheries sector will be modernised


Modi Lies

Other than setting up funds, to actually modernise the fisheries sector the funds would have had to be released as well. As of 22nd November 2018, in the last 4.5 years, only Rs 1915.33 crore has been released for the implementation of Blue Revolution schemes.

LIE: In the last 4 years, our government has removed 7 crore fake accounts from the system, these 7 crore people were those who were never born, they didn’t exist, but they were getting benefit of government facilities

These arbitrary Aadhaar cancellations have led to the exclusion of hundreds of people. […]

LIE: Today, India can compete at the international stage. The International Solar alliance is such a stage and through this medium we want to show the world, that ‘One Sun, One World, One Grid’


Modi Lies

India has installed just about 2,538 MW as of March 2018, which is only 6% of its set target for 2022.

LIE: At 7.3%, the average GDP growth over the entire term of our Government, has been the highest for any Indian Government since 1991


Modi Lies

The back series data released by MOSPI clearly indicated that GDP growth touched a high of 10.08% in 2006-07 in terms of factor cost, the highest since liberalisation of the economy in 1991. In terms of market prices, the highest growth was 10.78% in 2010-11.
