New Delhi, May 30: Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel on Saturday said that since 1947 India has been self reliant but Bhartiya Janata Parly (BJP) discovered it’s meaning now.
“Since 1947 India has been self reliant.British left us with nothing,but successive govts made us self reliant in military & space capacity, food & milk supply and financial reserves,” he tweeted.
“After 70 yrs of India being self reliant, BJP just discovered it’s meaning. Better late than never,” Patel said on Modi’s self-reliant India campaign after government failed to control the spread of COVID-19.
“Which milestone is this government celebrating? GDP growth between Jan 2020-March 2020 is 3.1%, lowest in 11 years. And this does not even take into account the impact of the Corona pandemic,” he said.
