6 Fake promises made by the Government of India that we foolishly believed!

Politicians lie. They promise but once you vote, they forget everything. It's like what Aamir Khan was suffering in Ghajni- Short Term Memory loss. Well, we're surely not here to crib about their most famous quality but we're here to make you realise that how stupid are we!

Every five year, we allow some fool to play us with big promises just so that they can fill their pockets. Once we choose them, the politicians think that they are allowed to do any f**king thing but that’s not true.

The citizens do know what politicians are doing and what they’re really doing. So without further ado, here is a list of six fake promises which the government conveniently forgot!

Bringing black money back

BJP promised to bring back the black money which has been stashed in overseas bank accounts but there has been no update on that. However, there has been a 50% increase in money that has been stashed by Indians in Swiss bank!

Regulating price rise

They promised to put an end to the hoarding and black market but we only got to see the higher petrol and diesel prices!

Proper sanitation

According to reports, since 2014 the Indian government has built 6 crore toilets under the Swachh Bharat Mission. Surprisingly, a survey revealed that 6 out of every 10 toilets which were built had no water supply and were not usable.

Expansion of the textile industry

The textile industry provides employment to approximately 100 million workers and contributes to $40 billion in exports to the economy in 2015-16. The government, itself set a target of $45 billion for 2016-17, but it missed it by a huge margin, earning just $38.6 billion, as demonetisation broke the back of this labor-intensive industry.

The Lokpal Bill

Let bygones be bygones. Indian politicians live by this policy. This bill was passed in 2013 but no further development has made ever since. The anti-corruption bill simply asks for the formation of an independent body to investigate corruption, which is pretty much the sole reason why it hasn't been implemented till yet!

Electricity in all households

This was one of a major point which PM Modi promised while his campaign days. He promised to provide to all rural and urban households by 2019. Till now the government is only connecting 633,630 houses to the grid every month when it needs to connect 2.7 million.

These above mentioned are promises made by the government and we're just simply accepting answers.
