New Delhi, June 23 (IANS) Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that his party has started a fundraising campaign “to shame Prime Minister Narendra Modi for playing a joke on people of Odisha” and not fulfilling his promise of setting up a medical college in Rourkela.
“On 1st April, 2015 the PM played an April Fools’ day joke on the people of Orissa, as seen in this video. The Congress party has begun a fund raise to shame the PM into keeping the promise he made,” tweeted Gandhi, asking people to contribute generously.
Attaching the link: “https://contribute.inc.in/fundraiser/Odishahospital”, he also attached a video which shows Modi promising ISPAT Medical College Cum Super Speciality Hospital in Rourkela, but how there is still no sign of a medical college yet.
The video also shows a person named Muktikanta Biswas who had already walked more than 1,350 km to remind Modi of his promise. On his way to Delhi, he fell ill in Agra and was admitted to a hospital.
The link shared by Gandhi would take a viewer to the fund-raiser page which says: “Support this man’s struggle against Modi’s broken promise.”
