Many more people welfare programs will be started in the coming days. Prime Minister Shri Naredra Modi and his whole team deserve commending for this. On the other side exhausted leader of congress party are making meaningless statements. They are asking the report card of 6 months governance of NDA government. A party that has ruled over the country for 60 years and did not allow the progress of country, compelled crores of people to live in poverty, deprived the youth of jobs, tried to end democracy, are asking the report card of six months rule. A party like this does not have the right to ask for the same. The people of the country have punished congress party in Lok Sabha elections of 2014 for its misgovernance and corruption. Thereafter they have been punished in assembly elections of Haryana and Maharashtra.

Now the people of Jharkhand and Jammu &Kashmir are ready to give a befitting reply to the Congress. Anyone can understand the mental status of the leaders of Congress who are completely depressed. Due to this only the congress is not able to see the achievements of the NDA government.

Overall the Prime Minister Shri Naredra Modi and his team have achieved phenomenal success. When the government will produce its report card of 60 months to the public, definitely the list of its achievement will be much longer.
