Rajkot: Congress MP Kunvarji Bavaliya on Monday accused Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi of favouring industrialists more than farmers and general public when it comes to providing basic amenities.
"The Modi government has no concern for farmers and the common man," the Rajkot MP told reporters after observing the 'Satkarm fast' to counter Modi's one-day 'Sadbhavna fast'.
"While industrialists get land and electric supply connection very easily, farmers are struggling to get the same," he alleged.
The BJP government provides all facilities to industrialists but does nothing for local entrepreneurs, he added.
Modi had claimed that the vibrant summits would create jobs but the fact is that unemployment ratio has increased during his tenure as Chief Minister, the MP claimed.
Bavaliya further alleged that Modi was misusing the government machinery for the success of his fast, which was merely a political stunt.
Porbandar MP Vitthal Radadiya and local Congress leaders joined Bavaliya's day-long fast held at Sorathiyavadi Chowk, about 4.5 km away from the Racecourse ground where Modi observed his fast.
