The BJP has kicked off a nationwide campaign to boost its popularity even in states ruled by the Opposition. In this context, party president Amit Shah has visited Telangana and addressed the party workers.
“Some people are asking what did the Narendra Modi government do? I want to say, it did in three years what all governments did not do in 70 years,” said Amit Shah.
The BJP bigwig also responded to queries from Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi as to what the former was celebrating upon its three years in government, saying people wanted to know what Congress did during its tenure after country gained independence.
In the last three years, the NDA government has built crores of toilets in the last three years, Shah pointed, in response to claims there were 16 crore families in the country without a washroom.
Amit Shah further said the Centre had, in fact, aided the Telangana state with Rs 1 lakh crores through diverse modes. He aimed to rebut Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who demanded an apology from Amit Shah for making such a claim earlier.
