J'khand CM's chair was up for sale during Cong-JMM rule: Modi

Press Trust of India  |  Jamshedpur 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at the opposition alliance in Jharkhand, saying during their rule five years ago only reports of corruption and loot would come from the state.

Addressing a poll rally here, he said several Congress and JMM leaders are still facing trial in corruption cases.

"The Jharkhand chief minister's chair was even up for sale during the Congress-JMM rule," he alleged.

The state has seen ten chief ministers in fourteen years, which was only because of self-interest of the Congress and the JMM. "For the first time BJP has given Jharkhand a CM who stayed for five years."

Modi said Jamshedpur is a land of labour and enterprise, and it has fulfilled dreams of millions of people and enhanced India's reputation in the world.

He also said the BJP dispensation has taken the central government out of Delhi to every corner of India and Jharkhand has benefitted from this change in the system.
