Hitting the campaign trail in Gujarat on Friday, Congress president Sonia Gandhi launched an attack on Chief Minister Narendra Modi saying his government does not care for the poor and adivasis and no one knows where the developmental funds from the centre were spent.
The Congress supremo and United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson, who addressed two rallies in south Gujarat, said at Mandvi, UPA gave thousands of crores of loans to every state including Gujarat "but we do not know where it was spent."
"Congress always saw everyone as equal. But the Gujarat government has no concern for the poor," she said.
She said the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state is making hollow promises and there was no improvement in the living standard of adivasi (indigenous people) despite tall promises.
She said the BJP governments at centre and state did nothing to improve the life of forest and tribal people and did not pass any bill during their tenure that benefits these people though the same was drafted during the time of Congress.
