Sindhanur: After his rear-view mirror drive jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday likened the PM to 'a cricketer who bats looking at the wicketkeeper without knowing from where the ball is coming'. The country doesn't want to hear about the past.

"I would like to remind PM Modi that his term has nearly ended and he should work to fulfil his promises", Gandhi said.

Gandhi asserted that Modi's "backward-looking" thought has caused demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST), which he referred to as "Gabbar Singh Tax". He further stated that since the party's victory in the 2014 elections, the saffron party has used social media effectively to dispense the message that they have gone the last mile using social media.
