Rahul Gandhi hits back at PM for MGNREGA jibe News Today
| Tuesday | 23rd February, 2021
“When Modi became Prime Minister in the Parliament House in front of all of us he ridiculed MGNREGA.
He said MGNREGA was an insult to the Indian people” Rahul alleged as he began his two-day visit to his constituency in poll- bound Kerala.
He said the Prime Minister was forced to increase the work and money of the scheme during the spread of coronavirus in the country.
“And he was forced to accept during Covid-19 that only MGNREGA played the role of saviour of our people” Rahul said.
The Wayanad MP said both SHGs and the MGNREGA were brought in by the UPA government not as a 'gift' but as 'tools for empowerment for making our people stronger'.
