Prime Minister Narendra Modi targetted the Congress using a famous remark made by Rajiv Gandhi in 1985 that only 15 paise of every rupee meant for welfare of downtrodden reaches them.
Without naming the former prime minister, PM Modi referred to Rajiv Gandhi's comment that only 15 paise of a rupee reaches the masses and said the Congress government had done nothing to stop the leakage."You must have heard of an ex-prime minister talking of corruption. He said only 15 per cent of a rupee from Delhi reaches villages and that 85 paise disappears. For so many years, the party that ruled the country accepted this," PM Modi said.
