“The promises were made years ago in 2010 by the former government. Why didn’t they work towards making the promise a reality?” the Prime Minister said in his address. The past government promised to employ 1,500 people… only 200 people were employed.”

Amid chants of “Rahul Gandhi chor hai”, he added, “I’m not naming anybody… but you all know who I am talking about… Just the way they ignored national security… they ignored Amethi too.”

Rahul Gandhi has been representing Amethi in parliament for three consecutive terms. His parents, Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, had also been lawmakers from the constituency.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP’s Smriti Irani challenged Mr Gandhi on the seat, claiming that he and his family have done little for the people in the area.

In the 2017 assembly elections, the Congress lost all four assembly seats it had under the Lok Sabha constituency, the BJP had won three of them.

Ms Irani got a pat on the back from the Prime Minister today. “You (the people) showered so much love on Smriti Ji… she worked so hard and it never appeared that she had lost from Amethi,” he added.

Among the other initiatives launched today, the Prime Minister said, were projects for healthcare and cattle shelters.
