‘Congress didn’t even construct a washroom there’: BJP after Rahul calls Jallianwala Bagh renovation ‘insult’

Prime News, National (New Delhi), Sept 1:- The BJP on Tuesday lashed out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his attack on the government over the renovation of the Jallianwala Bagh memorial, alleging that his party did not even construct a washroom at the site but is now doing politics over the exercise undertaken by the Modi dispensation.

Hitting out at Gandhi, BJP general secretary Tarun Chugh said the Congress leader should explain what his party did for the famous memorial, which commemorates the sacrifice of hundreds of unarmed civilians killed by the British forces in 1919, during its rule for decades.

When the memorial is now being expanded and modernised, then the Congress is rattled, he said.

The memorial even lacked a decent washroom facility for visitors, he said.

For many decades the Congress party was in power and the trust in charge of the memorial was under its control, but its government did not invest a rupee there, Chugh alleged.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh lived in the neighbourhood to the memorial in Amritsar but did nothing for it, he claimed. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
