Rahul slams Modi over 2015 promise in Odisha

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday flayed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for failing to keep his 2015 promise to upgrade a general hospital in Odisha’s Rourkela to a super-speciality hospital-cum-medical college.

“The PM promised Rourkela a multi speciality hospital three years ago. Now, Muktikant Biswal has walked 1,300 km to Delhi because the PM hasn’t kept his promise and people are dying,” Gandhi tweeted, attaching a news report about the Odisha man.

Biswal, a 30-year-old from Rourkela, has walked 1,350 km so far to meet the Prime Minister and remind him about his 2015 promise. He was admitted to a hospital on the Agra National Highway after he fainted.

Addressing a public meeting at Rourkela Steel Plant in 2015, Modi announced that the existing Ispat General Hospital will be upgraded. (IANS)
