Barmer (Rajasthan), Jan 16: In a fierce attack on the Congress party, Prime Minister rendra Modi on Tuesday said that drought and the Congress are “twins” and accused the party of “fooling people by making false promises”. “Congress and drought are twins. No matter where Congress goes, drought always follows,” Modi said while addressing the public in Pachpadra in Barmer, during a function to lay the foundation stone of the much-awaited Rajasthan Refinery Project. Modi’s attack on the Congress comes in the wake of a letter written by former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in which he had questioned why the Rajasthan Refinery’s foundation-laying ceremony was being held for the second time when it was already done by then Congress president Sonia Gandhi four years back. Modi said: “Congress party has misled people by simply laying foundation stones for projects and has done nothing for the poor. We cannot mislead people by installing stones. As in 2022 we complete 75 years of independence, we will ensure that our refinery starts functioning in the same year,” Modi said. He took a dig at the Congress, saying: “We don’t want people to come and ask us that after installing the stone why you did not take action on implementing the same.” (IANS)
