Rahul targets PM on tribal welfare in Gujarat

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Continuing his attack on Prime Minister Modi in the run-up to the polls, vice president today questioned him about Rs 55,000 crore meant for tribal welfare.

In his 10th question in the series ahead of the polls in the state, Gandhi targeted the prime minister on the plight of tribals in the state.

Migration has broken the tribal society, Modiji where have the Rs 55,000 crore of Vanbandhu scheme gone?

Snatched tribals land, did not give them rights over the jungle and lakhs of land ownership contracts have been held up. Neither did schools function nor did they get a hospital, neither house for the landless nor employment for the youth, Gandhi alleged on Twitter.

Gandhi is using the tagline 22 saal ka hisab, maange jawab (demands answers for 22 years of rule) for his offensive.

The vice president has been using the microblogging website to pose daily questions to the prime minister about the performance of the in Gujarat and its promises over the past 22 years of its rule in the state.

The first phase of the Gujarat polls will be held tomorrow and the second phase on December 14. The votes will be counted on December 18.
