Jaipur (Rajasthan) [India], Nov 21 (ANI): Sharpening his attack on the Congress party, Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal has said that that the party could not think beyond corruption, casteism and dynastic politics when it was in power.
Addressing media in Jaipur, the Union Minister said, "All Congress has is a history of casteism and dynastic politics along with corruption. There are several incomplete promises of the Congress that I am fulfilling. We are not a kind of government that makes false promises. The Congress has done the politics of making promises while the BJP is working with an aim of development."
He further said that the Congress stood failed on every developmental work when it was in power.
"The Congress has always made hollow promises to people, they have not done anything during its tenure in the country, while the BJP has implemented various public welfare schemes, which are directly benefitting people," he added.
The minister also appreciated the work done by incumbent Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and said, "Vasundhara Raje has provided electricity, water and LED bulbs to people. Food at lowest price is also being provided to the needy people during the Raje's tenure in the state."
Talking about development work, Goyal assured that every citizen in India will have their own house by August 15, 2022. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of building an India where every family will possess its own house by 2022 that will mark 75 years of Independence will be achieved soon. Every person will get his/her own house with basic facilities like proper water, electricity, and toilets," he asserted.
On being asked about the lack of rail connectivity in Tonk, the Union Railway minister said, "There are several incomplete and hollow promises of the Congress that I have inherited and they are being taken up one by one. We will get the survey done in Tonk and announce the project as per the proper system."
The Union Minister also exuded confidence that the BJP would again form government in Rajasthan under the leadership of Vasundhara Raje.
The Assembly elections in the state will take place in a single phase for all 200 seats on December 7 while the counting of votes will take place on December 11. (ANI)
