During Congress regime, Rs 90,000 crore was looted every year using 6 crore bogus names: PM Modi

Modi said that people who do not know the difference between moong and masoor are teaching farming to others

Launching a scathing attack on Congress, prime minister Narendra Modi said that new methods to loot public money were invented during the Congress regime. He said the current government have detected so many loopholes in earlier processes that it is unbelievable. Now that the Modi government is locking down those holes, the Congress party is furious on him, Modi said. He said that is the reason why the Congress party is making personal attacks on him and his parents.

Addressing an election rally in Rajasthan, Modi said that during the Congress rule, women who did not exist were getting a regular pension, households that did not exist were having ration cards and getting subsidised items. Narendra Modi informed that so far, the government have identified 6 crore such bogus names, which were used to syphon out ₹90,000 crore of public funds every year. Modi also added that all this happened when the government was being run by a remote control.

Modi also said that while the Congress leadership pretends to care for the poor, they have no knowledge of how poor people live. He said that people who don’t even know whether chana (chickpea) grows on a tree or shrub, who don’t know the difference between moong and masoor, are roaming around teaching farming to others.

Modi emphasised that he is just like any other common man, saying he lived his life like others, like everyone else he was not born with a silver spoon. He said his parents didn’t rule the country like common people, taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi. He said such elite people don’t know how a firewood stove is used, they do not know what is smoke. He has seen his mother using such stoves, and the resultant smoke that brought tears in the eyes. That is how he got the inspiration to launch the Ujjwala scheme, Modi said.

Polling for assembly election in Rajasthan will take place on 7th December.
