Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said at an election rally in Rajasthan that Kota had developed under the rule of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and it should be given the status of a Smart City.
Earlier in the day, going all out to woo farmers in the state, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday promised farm loan waiver in ten days if the party forms government in the state. Speaking at an election rally in Jaisalmer district’s Pokhran Assembly constituency, Gandhi said he had said the same thing in Punjab and Karnataka elections and the Congress governments there have waived loans of farmers. “You are going to make Congress party’s government in the state. Within ten days of government formation, Congress will waive farmers’ loan in the state,” he said.
