Varanasi: PM Narendra Modi slammed opposition for questioning his ambitious Jan Dhan Yojana and said, “Those who kept poor away from banking facilities even after four decades of nationalization of banks are seeking account of such a scheme of government which has brought Rs 30,000 crores cash in rotation in a record time.”
While speaking at an event of rickshaw distribution in his parliamentary constituency, Varanasi, on Friday, PM not only indirectly targeted the previous Congress-led governments referring to the popular slogan of ‘Garibi Hatao’ but also expressed his commitment of doing the task in 50 months what they had failed to do in 50 years.
PM Modi’s Varanasi visit
“Main hairan hoon, jinhone ek bhi khata nahi khola who hisab maang rahe hai ki khate operate nahi ho rahe hain. Main yeh batane ayah un ki jo kaam apne 50 saalon mein nahi kiya, main who 50 mahino mein karunga. (I am surprised that those who did not open a single bank account are showing their concern that the accounts are not being operated properly. I am here to tell them that what they failed to do in 50 years, I will do in 50 months),” Modi promised so in Varanasi.
