Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday for his “U-turn” on the MGNREGA scheme, and thanked him for understanding its vision and allocating an additional budget of Rs 40,000 crore for it.

“The prime minister has approved an additional budget of Rs 40,000 crore for the MNREGA scheme created during the UPA era,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.

“We express our gratitude to him for understanding the vision of MNREGA and promoting it,” the former Congress president added.

Gandhi also used the hashtag — “ModiUturnOnMNREGA” — while putting out a video clip of the prime minister’s speech in Parliament after he assumed power in 2014.

 

 


“MGNREGA is a living monument of your failures,” Modi had said about the scheme in his speech in Parliament, while noting that even after 60 years of the independence, the Congress had to send people to dig up ditches.
