The people in the area had no expectations of its development, she told reporters after visiting the Modern Coach Factory here. She claimed that during the UPA government’s term, railway coaches were brought to the factory from Kapurthala and shown as the achievement of the Rae Bareli unit. “Now under the Narendra Modi government, 700 coaches are made here,” she said. “The rail coach factory here has become a symbol of possibilities under the Narendra Modi government,” she said.
