Congress chief Rahul Gandhi is a “part-time leader” who doesn’t understand issues concerning Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, which is going to polls next week, said Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday.
During the address at rally, Barghat (ST) constituency in Seoni district for the November 28 elections, Fadnavis also attacked the Congress for making “lofty promises” in its poll manifesto.
Referring to Maharashtra, Fadnavis said the Congress can never fulfill its electoral promises “even though it is given the entire budget of Madhya Pradesh for the last 15 years”.
He said, “The Congress had given the slogan of ‘Gareebi Hatao’ (remove poverty) but instead the poor were eliminated”.
Chhattisgarh, also ruled by the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), had voted in two phases on November 12 and 20.
