He cited that the Nagaland peace accord, signed in 201, is yet to see the light of the day.
Taking a fresh jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said that the Nagaland peace accord, was signed by PM Modi in 2015 amid great fanfare and promises – is yet to see the light of the day. He said that Modi is the first Prime Minister whose words don’t mean anything.
Raising questions over the credibility of the PM’s words, Rahul shared a post on Twitter.
August 2015, Mr Modi claims to create history by signing the NAGA accord.
Feb 2018, Naga Accord is still nowhere to be found.
Modi ji is the first ever Indian PM whose words don’t mean anything. #CantFindTheAccord

Rahul Gandhi Tweet came amid demands by several Naga groups and the state’s political leaders for the postponement of the upcoming polls to facilitate early resolution to the insurgency issue in the state.
Earlier in August 2015, PM Modi and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) signed the Nagaland peace accord to put an end to the insurgency issue in the region.
Days back, Rahul Gandhi claimed that the Prime Minister’s “unilateral decision” is the reason behind the blockade in the implementation of the peace accord in Nagaland.
“Nobody has understood what the Prime Minister had signed, (or) whether he had signed. This is his style. This (Naga accord) is similar to (November 8, 2016) demonetization and implementation of Goods and Services Tax at midnight,” said Gandhi.
Further recalling Modi’s conversation with former Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rahul said, “Modi called up then Congress President Sonia Gandhi one evening and told her we have solved the Naga problem and signed an accord. Soniaji called me and told what Modi conveyed to her. She told me to check with the then Congress Chief Ministers of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, and Manipur to find if they were aware of the accord and were consulted by the Prime Minister.”
“They (Chief Ministers) called the MHA (Ministry of Home Affairs) and were told that the MHA had no idea about the deal. Then they wrote to the Union Home Minister, and he too informed them that he had no idea what exactly the accord was,” he added.
Also reacting at the ongoing crisis in Nagaland, the Congress president said, “The style of functioning of the Prime Minister has led to Nagaland’s reaction. It shows a large number of people do not believe in the Prime Minister because he has got credibility problem.”
