Modi playing drums in Japan, people batting problems here: Rahul Gandhi
AMETHI: Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on
Thursday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he was playing the
drums in Japan while people in the country were battling power cuts, price rise
and lack of roads and water supply.
“The Prime Minister is playing the drums in Japan
while there is no electricity here. There are no roads and there is no water,”
said Rahul, who is currently on a two-day visit to his constituency Amethi in
The Bharatiya Janata Party made tall promises in the
run-up to the general elections, but there is no action on the ground after it
came to power, he claimed.
“The government came on a set of promises. The
government has forgotten their promises, so let me remind them. If I recall
correctly, there was a promise about corruption, there was a promise on prices,
there was a promise on electricity.”
“Vegetables are more expensive today than they were.
There is a serious electricity problem and no action has been taken on
corruption. So, where is the result?” Rahul asked, contending the BJP-led
National Democratic Alliance’s first 100 days in power were a failure.
He alleged that the BJP leaders are high on speeches,
but low on delivery. “Big speeches are happening, but the efforts to fulfil
election promises have not yet begun,” he said, adding the common man too was
realising that the BJP is not sincere about fulfilling those promises.
Rahul said he has written a letter to Uttar Pradesh
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, seeking his intervention in power cuts in
