New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, saying that fishermen want an independent fisheries ministry, not just one department within a ministry. While addressing a public meeting in Puducherry, the Prime Minister expressed surprise at the statement made by Gandhi last week in which he said that there is no "dedicated" fisheries ministry.
Earlier, BJP leaders including Union ministers have also targeted Gandhi with this statement. Reversing the attack by the Prime Minister, Gandhi tweeted, "Dear Prime Minister, fishermen need not only a department within a ministry but an independent and dedicated fisheries ministry." Our two are definitely worse off.
Gandhi was referring to the sarcasm that he has used against the government to allege that this government is being run by Modi and his "corporate friends". "Modi said in Puducherry," Congress The leader of says that we will create a fisheries ministry. I was surprised. The truth is that it is the current NDA government which created a ministry for fisheries in 2019. '' In 2019, the Modi government created the ministry of fisheries, animal husbandry and dairy.
In another tweet, Gandhi attacked the government over a media report claiming that the government has started approving FDI proposals from China on a case-by-case basis. Gandhi said, "China has understood that Mr. Modi bowed to his pressure." They have now come to know that they can get whatever they want from them. ”In another tweet, Gandhi also attacked the government on the issue of employment and asked the government to create jobs for the youth.
