Modi tears into Gehlot Govt. over poor roads, drinking water supply in Rajasthan

Alwar (Rajasthan), Nov.19 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has criticised the Ashok Gehlot-led Rajasthan Government over poor roads, and lack of drinking water in the state.

Addressing a rally in Rajasthan's Alwar District, the Gujarat chief minister accused the Congress Government of harassing tribals by not providing them with clean drinking water.

"Rajasthan's Congress Government is number one when it comes to troubling tribals. They are also number one when it comes to supplying polluted drinking water," Modi said.

"If there is any state topping list in atrocities of tribal communities, it is this Congress-run Rajasthan Government. God save the country from Ashok Gehlot's ways of governance," he added.

He also attacked the state government for its poor performance on social indicators, including female foeticide and communal riots.

Targetting the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre, Modi said all politicians debating on development are now forced to give the example of Gujarat.

"Wherever the election, the discussion always cites the Gujarat example," he said.
Taking a jibe at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, Modi said India is a world champion in corruption because of the Congress Party.

"'Shezaade' (prince - referring to Rahul Gandhi) was saying that we are a world champion in corruption. He should look at the number of scams exposed in the past years," said Modi.

Rajasthan, which is currently governed by a Congress Government, votes for a new assembly on December 1. The counting of votes will take place on December 8.
