Congress wants to make Chhattisgarh its ATM: Modi


Raigarh, Chhattisgarh, In a sarcastic frontal assault on Chhattisgarh’s recently-elected Congress dispensation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleged on Friday that the party desired to convert the state into its “automated teller machine” vis-a-vis the general election and that is precisely why it decided not to let the Central Bureau of Investigation enter Chhattisgarh. “It was hoped that the new government would make a fresh beginning but as soon as it assumed the reins the regime took a couple of decisions – the first was pulling out from the Ayushman Bharat Yojana and the second was regarding the federal inquiry agency,” he averred while addressing a rally in this district headquarters. From Raipur to Delhi, the Congress’ ‘sultanate’ functions through a network of touts and middlemen but no falsification is possible under Ayushman Bharat so the Congress will now bring in a programme that has scope for universal graft, the visiting politician quipped, adding that the state shall consequently regress by years and tribal folk compelled to sell their land in order to afford medical treatment.
