Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been campaigning in UP for the upcoming general elections. As per reports, during her Amethi tour yesterday, when Priyanka was asked her opinion about Mission Shakti, she stated, “From matchbox to missiles, everything India has today, has been given by Congress”.
PM Modi had announced the success of India’s Mission Shakti yesterday, which saw India’s entry to the elite group of nations in the world after DRDO’s ASAT successfully destroyed a satellite in LEO.
After the news of the significant achievement, Congress leaders had been on a collective rant spree to claim that the credit for the achievement must go to Nehru.
Priyanka Vadra, speaking to the people in Amethi during her tour, claimed that PM Narendra Modi only does foreign tours and whatever India has achieved, it has been due to Congress. She stated that the expertise in manufacturing from matchboxes to missiles has come due to Congress.
On DRDO’s feat, Priyanka reportedly stated that she is proud of the DRDO and it has only become possible because Nehru had established the organisation.
Priyanka, when asked that poverty has not been eradicated from the country even after 60 years of Congress rule, stated that BJP leaders want to claim that poverty has not been eradicated at all. She added that poverty has been addressed to some extent.
Taking a dig on BJP’s Amethi candidate Smriti Irani, Priyanka stated that she comes to Amethi only for a picnic, while for the Gandhi family, Amethi is home.
