Addressing a gathering at Bhopal in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, she said, ”The Congress brought IIM and big hospitals like AIIMS, and Jawaharlal Nehru’s thought behind it was to set up such institutions which will take the country forward.”
”But it has become BJP’s policy to hand over the government-run companies to industrialists and take out the money from people’s kitty,” she alleged. Targeting the BJP-led Centre over the condition of Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Gandhi claimed that government-run companies have been given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s industrialist friends.
