While addressing a press conference Javadekar said, “PC Chacko described Gandhi family as the first family of the country. This is the Congress’ mindset and culture of sycophancy which resembles Devkant Barooah who used to say during emergency Indira is India, India is Indira.” Also Read - Congress Decides to Postpone Party President Election Due to Pandemic

“For the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), a poor family is the first family of the country and not any dynasty. Dynasty is Congress’ culture,” said Javadekar.

“Promises made by the state government before assembly elections have proved (to be) lies. Be it farm loan waiver, unemployment allowance, Congress has not fulfilled any of them even after 100 days,” former state minister Rajendra Rathore told reporters.

Former state BJP president Arun Chaturvedi said financial mismanagement, power and water cuts were the realities of the Congress government.
