Modi makes promises, doesn't fulfil them: Sonia

Jammu

10-December-2014

Congress president Sonia Gandhi Wednesday charged Prime Minister Narendra Modi with not fulfilling the promises he makes.

Addressing a large election rally at M.A. Stadium here, she said Modi announced Rs.1,000 crore for flood relief to Jammu and Kashmir, but the amount was not released.

"State government submitted a request of Rs.39,000 crore... that has also not been approved", she alleged.

The Congress president said her party, when in power, had provided enough legal and administrative means to tackle corruption, but alleged after the present central government took charge, "wrong and misleading statements are being made to mislead the masses".

Gandhi said her party had carried out people-friendly programmes during the last six years in the state but admitted that not all such programmes of the then central government could be implemented in Jammu and Kashmir because of coalition compulsions - IANS
