Mumbai: Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Saturday questioned the propriety of BJP celebrating two years of Narendra Modi government, saying such celebrations were out of place at a time when there was "agrarian crisis" in the country.

"I don't understand what the celebrations are for when the entire country is going through an agrarian crisis," Sibal told reporters here.

"There's no reason for this government to celebrate," the former Union minister said.

Inflation has increased under the Modi government, Sibal, who has been nominated by the party for the Rajya Sabha, alleged.

Replying to a query on "surgery" advises by senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh after the Congress' dismal performance in the recent Assembly elections, Sibal said,

"Yes, there must be surgery, but in national politics."

"We have done enough Introspection shouldn't we go for a Major Surgery?" Singh had tweeted after the poll results.
