MATHURA: Home Minister Rajnath Singh has claimed that there has been not a single corruption charge against the Modi government and targeted Rahul Gandhi, saying the Congress leader is trying to ride a punctured cycle.
“Compared to the SP and Congress govern¬ments, not even a single charge of corruption has come to light since the Narendra Modi government came to power,” he said on Monday while addressing a public meeting. The BJP leader was speaking in Tarauli village of Chhatta Assembly constituency in favour BJP candidate Laxmi Narain Chaudhary.
Taking a dig at Congress-Samajwadi Party alliance, he said the cycle Rahul is using is already punctured and mocked the Congress Vice President’s ‘Khat Sabha’ during the campaign quipping, “Chunav se pahle hi Rahul ne pakari khat (Rahul has taken ill before the elections could even start)”.
He said the loan of small farmers would be waived and interest on crop loan would also not be charged if BJP comes to power in Uttar Pradesh. He termed demonetisation as a decision taken in the interest of country and said the Prime Minister has tried to bridge the gap be¬tween rich and poor. “The backbone of terrorists and Naxalists has been broken through the note ban,” he said. Accusing SP and BSP of double¬speak, Singh said, “More than 4,000 incidents of loot and 7,600 incidents of communal riots belie Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav’s claim about better law and order situation in the state.” Singh also said the sugar mill in Chhatta would be made functional if BJP comes to power.
