Didn’t even spare cow dung: PM Modi’s corruption accusation against the Chattisgarh government’s Congress

Chhattisgarh assembly election: Prime Minister Narendra Modi charged the Congress for preventing the state’s residents from benefiting from the federal government’s development initiatives.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi charged the Congress for preventing the state's residents from benefiting from the federal government's development initiatives.

The Bhupesh Baghel-led Congress government in Chhattisgarh, which is headed to the polls, came under fire on Saturday from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly obstructing state-specific development initiatives from the Centre.

“I promise that I’ll work hard to make your dreams come true… Only when the BJP forms a government here will your aspirations come true. No matter how hard we try to get the Congress to cooperate from Delhi, it always fails. Chhattisgarh received thousands of millions of rupees over the past five years. At the ‘Parivartan Maha Sankalp’ event in the poll-bound state’s Bilaspur, Modi assured party members that there was no shortage of funding for the state’s road, train, electricity, and numerous other development projects.

The prime minister charged corruption within the Congress-led administration. “Congress corrupted the booze industry and spared no cow manure. The PM Garib Kalyan Yojana’s rations were corrupted by the Chhattisgarh Congress government, he claimed.

The deputy chief minister of Chhattisgarh, TS Singh Deo, said that when it came to development projects, the Center did not favor the state, which is governed by the Congress, in a statement that was cited by the prime minister during the rally.

“Deputy CM remarked that this event is open to the public… Reality cannot be concealed in public life. If the deputy chief minister is correct and Delhi does not commit any wrong, then everyone should have been happy, but Congress was hit by a typhoon. Infrastructure projects worth thousands of crores were approved by the Indian government for Chhattisgarh. They are either put on hold or delayed,” Modi continued.

Despite my best efforts, the Congress government in Chhattisgarh continuously works to prevent me from bringing you development, he claimed.

“Chhattisgarh has finalized the change. The statement of change may be observed in the excitement present. PM Modi intensified his criticism of the state’s Congress leadership by declaring that the people of Chhattisgarh had made the decision to no longer put up with its misdeeds.

At the end of this year, elections will be held in Mizoram, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Telangana. The state’s governing BJP was soundly defeated by the Congress, which had swept the 2018 elections.
