PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi Hit Campaign Trail In Chhattisgarh: 10 Points
Raipur/New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi hit the campaign trail today in Chhattisgarh, where people will vote for the assembly elections in two phases on November 12 and 20. Mr Gandhi began his address before PM Modi, and attacked the BJP government over alleged inaction against insolvent businessmen who have “fled the country”. “You have heard about Nirav Modi. That person met the finance minister before leaving for London,” Mr Gandhi said. The BJP is banking on PM Modi’s overall pull and election-winning formula that have worked in some states like Assam to retain the heartland state rich in natural resources and where Maoists are active in some pockets. The Congress campaign is also trying to swing voters in its favour by promising to keep farmers happy and not letting unchecked development bulldoze the interest of fragile communities.
