Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered the keynote address at the ‘Rising India Summit 2019’ in New Delhi today.
BJP President Amit Shah, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Union Ministers – Nitin Gadkari, Ravi Shankar Prasad, and Piyush Goyal were among those present. Theme for this year’s event is “Beyond Politics: Defining National Priorities”.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday questioned how could there be no jobs in India when the country was registering record growth. Taking a dig at his detractors, Modi said those who don’t believe him should at least believe opposition-ruled states, where jobs have been created.“When jobs were created in West Bengal and Karnataka, how can anyone say no jobs were added in India,” he asked.
Taking on the Congress, PM Modi said his rivals are upset since his government “plugged their sources of black money”, adding that his job was to ensure that each and every penny of the taxpayers was accounted for.
