Tiwari said that Arvind Kejriwal and AAP had ousted Congress from Delhi and Punjab and now the Chief Minister is sharing the stage with Rahul Gandhi.

He also said BJP and Prime Minister Modi are in everyone’s heart and the people of Delhi will decide everything as it is clear now that the top leaders of AAP and Congress are the same.

She also mentioned that the party members were told if they didn’t exit the alliance, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) would frame charges against Arvind Kejriwal to arrest him.

During the launch, PM modi also addressed the country and the audience gathered there. He said, they have introduced the largest storage program in the world for our farmers today. Thousands more godowns and warehouses would be built nationwide as a result of this, he said.

The Prime Minister slammed previous governments for failing to build the nation’s storage infrastructure, which caused farmers to incur enormous losses.

In his speech, the PM also said, this issue never received the proper attention from previous governments. But this issue is being addressed now with PACS. In the next five years, 700 lakh tonnes of storage capacity will be built as part of the largest food grain storage initiative in the world.
