Addressing a public meeting at Tyonthar, 90 km from Rewa district headquarters, Gandhi said, I heard Modi speech on August 15. I was amazed to hear him saying that before he became PM the elephant (India) was sleeping and achieved nothing, and it was he who woke it up.
Modi is insulting your forefathers because the country has come forward not because of Congress or BJP, but due to sweat and blood of the farmers,” drawing app- lause from the audience. He said Modi promised two crore jobs for the youth every year but failed.
