Twitter user shows Congress spokesperson the mirror after she attacks PM Modi over development record of his adopted village

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi has unfortunately had quite a few gaffes during her time on Twitter.

One time she was schooled by twitter users when she failed to grasp the basics about how insurance schemes are supposed to work. She in another instance decided to wish her followers a happy Ram Navami, when the occasion on that day was actually Mahanavami.

Now she is again in the twitter news after she decided to attack PM Modi for his adopted village allegedly not being up to the mark, when it comes to development :

She, in the process of discrediting PM Modi’s promises, quoted a Livemint article from March 2017 which claimed that infrastructure at PM Modi’s adopted village of Jayapur, like toilets, and solar panels were in bad shape.

Following Ms. Chaturvedi’s charge against PM Modi, a twitter user who goes by the name Shashi Kumar decided to show her the mirror by comparing the adopted villages of PM Modi, Rahul and Sonia Gandhi:

He listed out a few facilities provided at PM Modi’s model village like: construction of village roads, renovation of schools, setting up of High Schools for girls, opening up of banks and post offices, establishment of a skill development centre for women. Apart from this, bio toilets and solar panels have been constructed, which fully illuminate the village.

Here are a few images of PM Modi’s adopted village which were shared by Shashi:

Shashi also pointed out that other schemes like distribution of LED bulbs, gas connections, E-rickshaws, setting up of a library and an air-conditioned aanganbari centre for women have also taken place. Plus the whole village is covered with a WiFi connection.

He then came to the villages which have been adopted by Congress leaders Sonia and Rahul Gandhi.

With regards to Rahul Gandhi’s village of Jagdishpur, Shashi claimed that it lacks basic amenities like proper drainage system, medical centre, water distribution facilities:

These are some of the pictures from Rahul Gandhi’s village, as uploaded Shashi:

Incidentally, it was somewhat evident that Rahul Gandhi may not be paying much heed to his adopted village as he was critical of this scheme in itself. As per him, his job was to ensure development for all and not just for one village.

Shashi finally turned his attention to the adopted village of former Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Turns out that even though the walls in Ms. Gandhi’s village named Udva, contain graffiti about women’s empowerment, the girls actually have to leave their studies as there are no schools or colleges :

As per a 2016 report, the village only received about 10 hours of electricity and lacks even a vaccination centre. The nearest hospital is 22 KM away. Also reports claim that only 19 out of the total 608 families in the village have a toilet.

Here are a few images from Sonia Gandhi’s village:

So considering the above analysis, it remains to be seen whether Ms. Chaturvedi taps into her inner conscience, and takes up the issue of the poor condition of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi’s villages to reaffirm her concern for rural India.
