Previous governments ignored villages as they weren’t vote banks: PM Modi
Rewa (MP), Apr. 24 (PTI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said: Previous governments ignored that villages are not vote banks.
Addressing a public event in Rewa on the occasion of National Panchayat Raj Day, Modi said the BJP-led government has changed the situation and given huge grants to panchayats.
“Earlier governments were reluctant to spend money on villages as they were not a vote bank in themselves. That is why they were ignored.
“Many political parties are running their ‘shops’ by dividing the villagers,” Modi said.
BJP has opened up our coffers for the development of villages and put an end to this injustice done to the villages.
The Prime Minister said that his government has opened bank accounts of more than 40 crore people in villages under the Jan Dhan scheme.
At the event, Modi also laid foundation stones for various railway projects in Madhya Pradesh. PTI COR MAS VT VT VT
