Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday addressed a public meeting in West Delhi's Dwarka. Attacking Congress, PM Modi said for 60 years, the grand old party has done injustice to the potential of India.

"I won't hesitate to say that they (Congress leaders) indulged in criminal activity. The BJP government is the only one that can give the scale and speed that a huge country like India requires," he added.

""The voting on more than 400 Lok Sabha seats has been completed...The 5 phases have confirmed a strong BJP-NDA government. The country understands that any vote for the INDI alliance is not going to be of any use to the country. Every vote for the BJP will ensure the resolution of Viksit Bharat...," the PM said.

The Prime Minister criticised the Congress government in the past, comparing it with his government.

The PM said the Congress government could only build 12 km of highways every day, but now the Modi government is building 30 km of highways.

In 60 years, the Congress government could only manage to build 70 airports, but the Modi government built 70 new airports in a decade, he added. 

"In 60 years, Congress could only build 380 medical colleges. However, the Modi government built more than 325 medical colleges. During the Congress, the country had only 7 AIIMS. However, today the country has more than 22 AIIMS," he stated.

Citing a statement of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi (without naming him) over corruption in India, he praised his government, saying now beneficiaries get the government's financial support without paying the middleman.

"During the Congress rule, one of their Prime Ministers had said that when they send 100 paise from Delhi, only 15 paise reaches the village, 85 paise disappear. Today, if we send one rupee from Delhi, then through DBT, the entire amount gets deposited in the beneficiary's account," PM Modi said.
