Bhawanipatna (Odisha), May 8 (PTI) Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday claimed that poverty would be completely eradicated from India in the next 10-15 years and this is ‘Modi Ki guarantee’.

Singh said this while addressing the BJP’s ‘Vijay Sankalp’ rally here in the district headquarters town of Kalahandi.

“Though Congress leaders beginning from Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru to Indira Gandhi and Manmohan Singh all have promised to end poverty, all of them have failed. However, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has started the process to end poverty,” he said.

Noting that about 25 crore people have been lifted from below the poverty line during the nine years rule of Modi, the Defence minister said that this was not the claim made by the BJP, but the report of Niti Aayog. No previous government had ever done so as Modi did in the last nine years, he claimed.

Singh said: “There will be no family in India which will not have a pucca house, pipe drinking water and LPG gas connection in the next 5 years.”

Recalling the Kalahandi situation, the BJP leader said that people from NGOs were coming to Kalahandi and writing articles on ‘poverty tourism’, as the place was known for hunger, starvation death and poverty. However, things have undergone a massive change during the nine-year rule of the Modi government at the Centre, he said.
