Modi lashes out at Congress in Rajasthan rally

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday attacked Congress saying it had followed a policy of “misguiding and depriving” the poor and noted that the nine years of BJP-led government have been dedicated to service to citizens and good governance. Addressing a public meeting here, PM Modi said India’s achievements today were being praised across the world and alleged that people suffered before 2014 during the rule of Congress-led government. “Congress has cheated even the heroes. It is Congress that has been betraying our ex-servicemen in the name of ‘One Rank One Pension’. The BJP government not only implemented ‘One Rank One Pension’ but also gave arrears to ex-servicemen,” the Prime Minister said.
