Government coining empty slogans: Rahul

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the Modi government of coining empty slogans and useless acronyms.

“MAKE (empty slogans and useless acronyms) IN INDIA… meanwhile, make our soldiers buy their own clothes and shoes,” Gandhi tweeted while attaching an ‘Economic Times’ story headlined “Indian Army to cut 50 per cent supply from state-run ordnance factories”.

The story said the move was to ensure that the money spent was instead used to procure adequate stock of critical ammunition and spares for a short intense war.

It said ordnance factories’ products supplied to the Army would be brought down from 94 to 50 per cent as the Centre had not provided additional funds for emergency procurement of ammunition and spares.
