Jamshedpur/Khunti, Dec. 4 -- In a two-pronged attack on the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday accused it of procrastinating resolution of national issues like Article 370 and the Ayodhya dispute, even as he flayed the party for presiding over "corrupt and unstable" governments in Jharkhand.

"Did Ram Janmabhoomi (dispute) happen after we came to power? Was it not the Congress party that obstructed a resolution? Was it not done for vote bank politics?" Modi told an election rally in Jamshedpur.

Congress spokesperson Pranav Jha said the PM and the BJP's tactics of distracting voters from core issues is not working.p13
