Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked the Congress on Wednesday, saying it had a policy of deceiving the people and keeping them impoverished while in power.
“The Congress promised that it would end poverty fifty years ago. At a rally in Ajmer, he claimed that it ended up being their largest betrayal of the poor.
The Congress has made it a point to deceive the people and keep them in poverty. This has caused a great deal of suffering for the Rajasthani people as well,” Modi stated.
The event was held to commemorate the end of the Modi administration’s nine-year tenure spanning its two terms.
He said that the nine years of the BJP’s rule were devoted to serving the public, promoting good governance, and assisting the underprivileged.
Before 2014, according to Modi, protests against corruption and terror attacks shook major cities while the Congress controlled the government from a distance.
He claimed that the Congress created a corrupt system while it was in power that “sucked the blood of the country” and impeded progress.
The prime minister claimed that today, India is a topic of conversation around the globe and that experts believe India is very near to eradicating extreme poverty.
