BJP leader and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi on Thursday targeted the Rashtriya Janata Dal and said false promises are being made to people. Sushil Modi, who made several tweets, also targeted the Congress, saying that it failed to fulfil its promise of “Gareebi hatao” made by Indira Gandhi in 1970s.

He said that the RJD wanted to target the unemployed by making false promises on jobs and money as was done by gangs indulging in thuggery. He said that the youth should be careful.

He added that Indira Gandhi returned to power in the 1970s with the slogan ‘Gareebi Hatao’, but poverty continued to grow. He said that in West Bengal, Communists ruled for 34 years in the name of the poor but factories were closed and bread snatched of the poor.
