‘Congress gave guarantees, could not fulfil even a single one,’ says Devendra Fadnavis


Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis has taken a jibe at Congress leader Sonia Gandhi over her six guarantees given in Telangana and said that wherever Congress gave guarantees, they could not fulfil even a single guarantee.

Fadnavis made the remark while talking to reporters in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore district on Monday. He has arrived here to participate in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatra’.

“I just want to ask the Congress leaders that in every state where the Congress gave guarantees, they could not fulfil even a single guarantee. They only lie, make promises during elections and later forget. They deceive people,” Deputy CM Fadnavis said. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has changed people’s lives in the last nine years. The change is visible. People are seeing that the country is moving forward and the people of India are with PM Modi,” he added.

Addressing a public rally in Telegana on Sunday, Sonia Gandhi said, “To fulfil the aspiration of the people of Telangana, we (Congress) are announcing six guarantees, Mahalakshmi being the first one. We are committed to fulfilling each one of them.”

When asked about Congress leader Rahul Gandhi saying there is some case against every opposition leader but no case against Telangana CM, or AIMIM leaders, Fadnavis said “What Rahul Gandhi says in the morning is not remembered in the evening. Similarly what he (Gandhi) spoke in the evening was not known on the next day.” “Rahul Gandhi may be a big leader of Congress but it is not necessary to take his statements seriously,” he added.
