Despite the fact that PM Modi was addressing a rally in Uttarakhand’s Shrinagar, BJP’s strength was visible given the number of supporters that came out during Gandhi’s road show.
But an unfazed Gandhi said, “I asked Chief Minister Harish Rawat to put pressure on the corrupt people and take actions against them.”
There have been fierce wars of words between Rahul Gandhi and PM Narendra Modi during the campaigning for Assembly polls for five states.
During a rally in Shrinagar, PM Modi hit out at the ruling Congress government, accusing it of lacking vision for growth even though the state has great potential in tourism and allied sector. He promised to transform the state and make it one of the most vibrant ones in India in terms of economic development.
He also flayed the Congress under Chief Minister Harish Rawat over many sins of omission and commission, including the fact that corruption had become endemic, that he said left the people there unable to make progress.
He also held out the examples of BJP-ruled Chhatisgarh and Jharkhand as well as his own reformist role at the Centre to support his claims. PM Modi also revealed that he has grand plans to tap the state’s tourism potential and herbal wealth to attract visitors from all over the world to its doorsteps.
