BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi lashed out at Congress today asking the party to explain whether funds given to the states “come from Rahul Gandhi’s maternal uncle’s place”.
The funds given by the Centre to the state is public money.
He took a dig at the Congress and said that the party had changed. Earlier Congress(I) was Indira Congress and now it is Congress(Italy).
Addressing a public rally in Chattisgarh Modi in his usual style said ”Sonia madam and Shehzade Rahul” claim that the Chattisgarh government did not utilize the funds given by Centre. “I want to ask them has that money come from Rahul’s maternal uncle”, he said amidst cheers from the crowd.
Modi said, "They fear, they would lose power in 2014 and BJP would form the government in Delhi. That's why they want to call off opinion polls".
Accusing Congress chief, Modi said that 'Madam' needs to do some homework before making any statement in Chhattisgarh. "While all Congress leaders have praised and awarded Chhattisgarh for its developments and achievements, madam commented about state being poor, backward and underdeveloped.
Criticizing the Congress, the BJP leader said that the Congress party in Chhattisgarh promises in their manifesto to provide 24-hour power supply and free rice, "why don't they first implement the schemes in states where they are already in power? There are many states being ruled by Congress, but they haven't implemented these schemes there, why? "
Attacking on the opposition party, the BJP leader claimed that Gujarat and Chhattisgarh are the two states which have provided 24-hour power supply, "Is there one state being lead by Congress which gives this facility? Does Sonia, PM and Rahul's own city gets undisrupted power supply? Then why don't they start the charity from home?"
