Amethi (Uttar Pradesh) [India], October 5 (ANI): Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is taking credit for the works done by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government in Amethi.
Gandhi read out a list of achievements by the UPA in the city that included six national highways, a 200-bed hospital, the Rajiv Gandhi National Aviation University in Fursatgunj, and a SAIL unit in Jagdishpur, among others.
"Our Prime Minister should accept the crisis and start working to resolve it instead of panicking and making excuses," Gandhi said, adding that Prime Minister Modi is diverting the topic by talks of Swachh Bharat and Make in India campaign.
He also added an "advice" for the prime minister: "The prime minister should stand up and say 'yes, we have not delivered'. We have one more year; we will deliver. That is what a true leader would do."
Rahul Gandhi began his three-day visit to his parliamentary constituency, on Wednesday.
On his first day, Gandhi stressed on similar issues and claimed that the leading dispensation has failed to provide jobs and secure farm incomes.
