The Congress leader, in a jab at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stated that his assurances are hollow declarations.
“Where was Modi’s assurance that Rs 15 lakh would be deposited into the bank accounts of every citizen and that crores of jobs would be created?” In response to each inquiry, Modi Ji issues a fresh assurance.
“His assurances are empty assurances,” she remarked.
Gandhi asserted that the cultivators of the nation have been weakened by the BJP-led government at the center.
She claimed that while Adani and other industrialists earn Rs 1,600 crore per day, farmers in the country earn only Rs 27.

“The BJP simply desires that the nation’s resources be transferred to their industrialist allies so that they can transfer funds and assets to the party.” They continue to expend money on elections thereafter. Gandhi raged, “Their sole objective is to maintain power; the welfare of the people is secondary.”
She criticized the previous Raman Singh administration in Chhattisgarh (2003-2018) and asserted that the state was ruled by violence under the BJP. Gandhi stated that after assuming power five years ago, the Congress freed the Naxalite-affected state from the grip of violence.
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel served as the event’s distinguished guest, where he formally commenced construction and set the cornerstones for undertakings valued at Rs 866.16 crore.
On Friday, materials valued at Rs 578.31 crore were distributed to 12,730 beneficiaries under various schemes. It was conducted in the Govindpur neighborhood of Kanker.
It was Priyanka Gandhi’s second visit to the Congress-ruled state in fifteen days, and assembly elections are scheduled for November-December of this year. On September 21, she participated in a state government affair held in the Durg district.
