Congress did nothing for Gujarat when it ruled country: Sitharaman
Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], November 11 (ANI): Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday attacked the Congress party for not doing anything for the poll-bound Gujarat when it was ruling the country.
"The Congress party, which was earlier at the Center, never thought of or worked for Gujarat. They did not do anything for river Narmada," the Defence Minister said, while addressing a press conference here.
She also said the development of river Narmada was done only when the Congress was not in the power.
"Development of river Narmada was done only when the Congress was not in the power. The development was done during the government of Morarji Desai, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and now Prime Minister Narendra Modi," she added.
Addressing a rally at Gujarat's Devgadh Baria on October 11, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Modi and the Vijay Rupani-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Gujarat and alleged that the water of the River Narmada is being given to the country's top ten industrialists.
The assembly election in the state will be held in two phases on December 9 and 14. (ANI)
