Rahul attacks Modi over ‘Bengaluru garbage city’ jibe, says it’s insulting

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s description of Karnataka capital Bengaluru as a “garbage city” was insulting, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said on Friday.

Gandhi alleged that the Modi government provided urban infrastructure funds of Rs 598 crore for the poll-bound state as compared to Rs 6,570 crore — 1,100 per cent more — assistance made available by the previous Congress-led UPA regime.

The data, Gandhi added, was sourced from the Union Urban Development Ministry.

Dear PM, Calling Bengaluru, the garden city & the pride of India a “garbage city” is insulting. Building lies comes naturally to you, but you seem to find building cities very difficult. The data nails your lies, Gandhi said on Twitter.

In a full-scale attack on the Siddaramaiah government, Modi had on Thursday accused it of having turned Bengaluru into a “garbage city and valley of sin” from “Silicon Valley”.
