Jaipur, July 7: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday addressed the beneficiaries of various welfare schemes of the BJP governments at the Centre and in Rajasthan. Addressing a public rally, PM Modi made a scathing attack on the Congress and said people recognise it as 'bail-gadi' as some of their prominent leaders are out on bail.
"Congress ko aaj kal kuch log 'bail-gadi' bolne lage hain. Congress ke kai diggaj neta aur mantri aajkal bail par hain (These days the Congress party is being called as 'bail-gadi', as some of their prominent leaders are out on bail these days)," PM Modi said in Jaipur. Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor was granted bail earlier today in the Sunanda Pushkar death case.
Continuing his tirade against the Opposition in the state, PM Modi said, "There are some people who will never appreciate good work done, be it the Centre or Rajasthan Chief Minister Raje Ji. Everyone must see the happiness of the beneficiaries' here. There is a class that gets irritated with Prime Minister Modi's name and his work."
The Prime Minister also said the various schemes launched by the central government focus on upliftment of Dalits, farmers, women and backward classes. "Dalits, farmers, women, backwards castes are at the center of our schemes," he said. "We have only one agenda and that is Vikas (development)," he declared.
PM Modi's comments comes after he laid the foundation stone for thirteen urban infrastructure projects worth over 21 hundred crore rupees. Around 2.5 lakh beneficiaries gathered in Jaipur to take part in the programme.
