Kaithal (Haryana): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today claimed that the Narendra Modi government at the Centre had drastically brought down inflation in just four months of being in power.
Campaigning for BJP's Kalayat constituency candidate Dharam Pal Sharma, he said Modi government was delivering the promises it had made to the people before the Lok Sabha polls. The Home Minister also said that the government had cut petrol prices on three occasions after coming to power while the Congress government had always “increased it”.
Rajnath was among the top BJP leaders including Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to address rallies in Haryana today for the October 15 state Assembly polls.
He said that Indians, who once had a passion for buying American and Japanese products, would now get the best quality products produced at home itself as India would produce quality products and people around the globe would crave for ‘Made in India' products.
He also said that now foreign companies were showing eagerness to make India their manufacturing destination.
On the frequent violations of ceasefire by Pakistan, the Union Minister said such incidents were unfortunate. He, however, said the previous UPA government believed in showing white flags to the enemy. “But we have deviated from that kind of policies,” he said, adding that “our government believes in giving befitting reply”.
Kalayat constituency is witnessing a keen contest among four candidates, three of whom are Jats - Rampal Majra of the INLD, Ranveer Mann of the Congress and Independent Jai Prakash against a non-Jat Dharam Pal Sharma.
