Bhubaneswar, May 26: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Saturday said the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre is only concerned about corporate houses. “Modi is only concerned for the corporate houses. This government is of Whatsapp, Facebook, Amazon and Paytm like companies. It is not for the people of the country,” said Sibal, as the NDA government completed four years at Centre. He said the Prime Minister, who is claiming of running a corruption-free government, is sharing the dais with Reddy brothers, who are involved in the multi-crore mining scam.
Speaking on Odisha context, Sibal said the BJP government has completely ignored the legitimate issues of the state. “While the state Assembly unanimously passed a resolution to hike the minimum support price of paddy and the members wanted to meet the Prime Minister, the latter did give time to meet the MLAs,” said the Congress leader.
Sibal also criticised both the Prime Minister and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik for the Mahanadi water dispute with Chhattisgarh government. “Modi promised during his campaign speeches that country can’t develop without the development of eastern states like Odisha and that his government will have eastern focus.
