Instead of visiting riots-hit Manipur, PM Modi watched cricket: Cong

Shahpura: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi went to Ahmedabad to watch a cricket match but did not visit violence-hit Manipur because there was a crisis there.
Addressing a rally in Shahpura in Rajasthan’s Jaipur district ahead of the assembly elections on November 25, Priyanka Gandhi said that Manipur has been engulfed in communal violence for almost seven months but the Prime Minister has not visited there.
Instead, he (PM Modi) went to Ahmedabad to watch the Cricket World Cup final between India and Australia.

“In the recent World Cup, our team reached the final with their hard work… Modi ji reached there so he might also get a bit of credit if the team wins,” she said, adding the prime minister would go to a place where there is pride and honour, but would stay away from a crisis situation.

She alleged that Prime Minister Modi and the Centre waived the debts of big industrialists but neglected the poor. She also said mixing religion with politics is a sin. She alleged that the BJP-led governments at the Centre and in states are working for big industrialists, whereas the Congress government in Rajasthan provided relief to people from inflation by holding special camps.

Priyanka Gandhi addressed the public meeting in support of Congress candidates Manish Yadav and Indraj Gurjar. Assembly elections in Rajasthan will be held on November 25 and the votes will be counted on December 3.
