Jaitley accused the opposition of making fake campaigns and promises to the people in the wake of the Lok Sabha elections.
Arun Jaitley said that the alliance between the opposition as not worked out with verbal battles between the Left and the Congress. In the recent developments, Congress has failed to forge an alliance with AAP. Mayawati, BSP leader, and Mamata Banerjee TMC leader do not spare a single opportunity to rebuke the Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

He alleged that the Rafale issue did not carry much weight that was so hyped by the opposition. The Loan waiver to the industrialists was a lie. When all of that failed, the opposition took to the EVM rigging. And now the opposition is in the middle of the campaigning confused on what issue to focus on.
Arun Jaitley wrote in his blog that there is no leader, no Gathbandhan, no Common minimum programme, and no real issue. He said that not many people believe in a “failed campaign.” Arun Jaitley took a stroll on the opposition saying that to “oust a strong government, an extremely popular Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the opposition might need some real issue. These fake issue would not help much.”

Jaitley also replied to the jibes taken at Smriti Irani by Priyanka Chaturvedi of the Congress at her educational qualifications.
