Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Former NCP leader on Saturday said people of the country are now realising that has failed to fulfil the promises he made during the 2014 election campaign.

He said has failed to fulfil his promises to bring back black money in 100 days, create 2 crore jobs for people, pay remunerative prices to farmers as per recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission Report and ensure safety of women.

Speaking at a seminar here, titled '- Challenges to Society', Anwar also claimed that a large section of the media has not been able to highlight the "failures" of the government properly.

"On and other issues, the media is not playing its proper role and things are not coming out and that is why the role of has become important. I am happy that the is playing a good role in exposing this government's failures," he said.

Last month, Anwar quit the following Sharad Pawar's "defence" of Modi on the deal.

He had said he was "hurt" by Pawar's interview to a Marathi channel where he said Modi's intentions on the fighter jet aircraft deal were not wrong.
