On the second day of his Kerala visit, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is present in his parliamentary constituency Wayanad today and is participating in various programs. During this he also met MGNREGA workers and addressed them. During his address, Rahul Gandhi said that the UPA government had conceptualized, developed and implemented MGNREGA. I remember when it was first mentioned we faced a lot of resistance. Bureaucrats, businessmen had said it was a waste of money.
PM needs to understand MGNREGA deeply: Rahul Gandhi
Rahul Gandhi also targeted PM Modi regarding MNREGA. Rahul Gandhi said that I was shocked when I heard the Prime Minister speaking against MNREGA in Lok Sabha. He described it as a living monument to the failures of the UPA. He called it a burden on the exchequer. This made me realize that the Prime Minister has not really understood the depth of MGNREGA. Rahul said that I was watching during the Corona period when thousands of people became unemployed while MNREGA saved people. The PM did not question MGNREGA at that time as it became clear that what he described as a living monument to the failures of the UPA was what saved India in the time of Covid.
