Madhya Pradesh polls: 'What four generations did for country, a tea-seller did in four years,' says Narendra Modi at Shahdol rally
At the Shahdol rally, Narendra Modi said that the Congress party was in power in Madhya Pradesh for so long, but did not do anything for the development of the people.
Shahdol: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday called the Congress party a "manufacturer of lies".
The Prime Minister while addressing an election rally in Shahdol said ,"These elections are not about who would win or who would not win. These elections are about welfare of people of Madhya Pradesh."
"What did the four generations of a party do for our country? However, a tea-seller, did what not in just four years? "he added.
Underlining the initiatives taken by the Madhya Pradesh Government-led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the past 15 years, the Prime Minister said that the Congress would never speak of the good work Chouhan did during his three tenures.
He said that the Congress party was in power in Madhya Pradesh for so long, but did not do anything for the development of the people. One cannot draw a comparison between the development work done by the Congress party and the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government.
"How can anyone trust Congress? When they were in power in MP and Chhattisgarh, they did not fulfill even what they had promised in their election manifesto," he added.
The 230-member Madhya Pradesh assembly will go to polls on 28 November and the counting will be held on 11 December.
