Lok Sabha elections 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday tried to breach the Gandhi citadel by giving a development push to Amethi, the high profile parliamentary constituency of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. “Our forces will now use rifles made in Amethi. Even Amethi will get a new identity.,” said the PM. Our forces had then made a request to the govt mentioning their needs.“Our forces will now use rifles made in Amethi. Even Amethi will get a new identity.,” said the PM. He claimed the work in the ordinance factory at Kaurava should have started 8-9 years ago. “Our forces had then made a request to the govt mentioning their needs. This was the reason this factory was sanctioned. The foundation was laid by your MP in 2007 and a promise was made to make it functional by 2010. But he could neither identify land for the factory nor could even decide on the arms tobe manufactured here,” maintained the PM. He added that at the time of laying foundation, Rahul Gandhi had promised jobs to 1500 youths but ended up giving only to 200. He then continued his onslaught by saying some people roamed all over the world saying ‘Made in Ujjain, Made in Indore’, etc. “But we have turned ‘Made in Amethi’ into a reality,” he said.
