The Congress on Saturday said people now know the Narendra Modi-Amit Shah duo was harmful to the country after four years of the NDA rule, which it described as a period of "treachery, trickery, revenge, and lies".

Releasing a booklet titled 'India betrayed' on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the Modi government, Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ashok Gehlot and Randeep Surjewala said an atmosphere of fear and hatred has been created under the NDA rule.

"People now know that Modi-Amit Shah duo is harmful to the country. Four years of the Modi government can be defined in four terms -- treachery, trickery, revenge and lies," AICC communication's in-charge Surjewala said.

Referring to alleged atrocities on Dalits, tribals, minorities and women, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, said, "Nobody is safe in India under the BJP government. Everyone is getting sleepless nights."

"Atmosphere of fear, hatred and violence was created in the last four years of the Modi government," AICC General Secretary Ashok Gehlot said at the joint press conference.

The Congress released the booklet 'India betrayed' on the four years of BJP's "misrule", both in English and Hindi, and asked a set of forty questions to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

They also released and showed a short-film describing the prevailing atmosphere in the country.

Mahila Congress chief Sushmita Dev said women in the country no longer feel safe under the Modi dispensation.

Youth Congress chief Keshav Yadav said the youth did not have anywhere to look at their future was in the dark due to the lack of opportunities and jobs.
