Charging the present NDA government at the Centre of delaying work on the Barmer refinery and now claiming credit for the project, the Congress on Tuesday said that in the last four years, the only thing that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done is passing off the projects started by the previous UPA government as its own.
Taking to social media, AICC media incharge Randeep Surjewala said, 'for four years, the present government stalled work on the Barmer refinery resulting in a cost escalation of Rs 6000 cr and loss of employment to thousands of youths. The PM is just busy taking credit by inaugurating the refinery, whose foundation stone was laid by the previous UPA government in 2013.
For four years, he has been doing just one thing, that is to put his own name on the projects started by the Congress.'
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday inaugurated the commencement of work at the oil refinery in Rajasthan's Barmer district.
The state of the art refinery will be first of its kind in the country. The refinery is expected to change the growth landscape of Rajasthan and western parts of the state in particular.
