Prime Minister Partial To Gujarat, Slammed Digvijaya Singh
Congress leader Digvijaya Singh slammed the Prime Minister and accused him of being partial to Gujarat as no relief fund was announced for the victims in Madhya Pradesh.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath who said that loss of lives also took place in Madhya Pradesh which is under the Congress rule. He said that even though the state does not have a Bhartiya Janta Party government, the Prime Minister should have extended his condolences to those who fell victims to the unseasonal rail there.
All this started after the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday (April 17) expressed anguish over the loss of lives in various parts of Gujarat due to unseasonal rain. "Authorities are monitoring the situation very closely. All possible assistance is being given to those affected," he tweeted. The Congress, however, cornered PM Modi over Gujarat-specific tweet saying he should act as the prime minister of the country and not be partial to Gujarat.
However after Congress leaders accused him of being partial to Gujarat, the Prime Minister’s office tweeted announcement of a relief fund for all victims in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Manipur and other parts which were affected.
