Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday took a dig at the Narendra Modi government over its smart city project, saying that real smart cities are built by good leaders and promised that a Congress government will move to have directly-elected mayors.

"Real smart cities are built by good leaders. To improve quality of life in our cities we will move to directly elected Mayors with 5 yr terms & elected councils. Administration will be run by multidisciplinary teams of specialists and experts accountable to the Mayor and council," Gandhi said in a tweet.

Gandhi has been giving an inkling into the party manifesto through his tweets.
