Congress' senior spokesperson Kapil Sibal, addressing a press conference, also alleged that the government's 100 days in office have been characterised by "arrogance, uncertainty and vendetta politics". He attacked the dispensation over issues such as the state of the economy, the situation in Kashmir, the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam and action by probe agencies against opposition leaders.

"Three words that describe the first 100 days of BJP 2.0 - tyranny, chaos, and anarchy," the Congress said earlier in a series of tweets.

BJP on 100 days of PM Modi govt 

No other government in the past has taken so many people-friendly decisions in its first 100 days in power, Union minister Prakash Javadekar said on Sunday, as the NDA dispensation marked its 100 days in office.

The Minister for Information and Broadcasting said the decisions taken by the government in its first 100 days have helped empower people, brought in more inclusiveness and transparency. The decision to abrogate Jammu and Kashmir's special status, and to make the practice of instant triple talaq a penal offence were some of the major ones, according to the minister.

They could be taken in quick time as preparations for them had started even before the Lok Sabha elections, he said. The BJP leader said the government has also unveiled a roadmap to make India a USD-5 trillion economy.
