Assam | Rahul Gandhi targets Modi for failing on Rs 15 lakh promise
GUWAHATI | April 4, 2019:
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that while the Prime Minister Narendra Modi led BJP government has failed to deposit the promised Rs. 15 lakh into everyone's bank account, he has given Rs. 30,000 crore to an industrialist friend.
"Modiji came here in 2014 and announced that everyone will be given Rs. 15 lakh in their bank accounts. However, not a single penny got deposited in last five years. That was a lie. I am assuring that 20 percent of the countrya's extremely poor people will be given Rs. 72,000 each every year. The amount will be deposited in the account of the women of the family. This is truth, we don't lie," he said while addressing a public rally in Assam's Bokakhat area on Wednesday.
