Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman hits out at Congress for neglecting Narmada River

New Delhi: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that development of Narmada River was done only when Congress was not in the power. 

'Only when the governments of Morarji Desai, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and now Narendra Modi had been at the centre that positive development work has been done on the Narmada,' said Sitharaman while addressing a gathering in Ahmedabad. 

'Congress, which was in the center earlier and in opposition here in Gujarat, never thought of or worked for the state. They did not do anything for river Narmada,' added Sitharaman. 

Earlier, on the first anniversary of demonetization, Sitharaman had hit out at Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over his criticism of demonetisation, alleging that the Singh looked away when 'organised plunder' kept happening under his rule.
