Accusing the BJP of misusing government and funds, Pilot said the total amount spent of the PM's rally would cost nearly Rs 1,500 crore.

It was unfortunate that the did not hold himself from targeting the at an event meant for addressing beneficiaries of government schemes, Pilot said.

He said that the BJP organised the rally for its political gains in theelection year.

It is responsibility of every government to start welfare schemes. But, it is for the first time I have seen that a ruling party is organising a rally by bringing beneficiaries of welfare schemes to one place for its political gains, he said.

Pilot countered the prime minister's claims about various welfare schemes, saying that the figures were far from truth.

He said that the PM's claim of issuing 90 lakh soil health cards to farmers is far from reality as there are only 68 lakh registered farmers in the state.

The has disappointed people in the last four years. They will not get any political benefit from the rally, he said.
