Piyush Goyal visits R K Nagar
Known for his blistering attacks on the Tamil Nadu government led by J Jayalalithaa, union power minister (Piyush Goyal visits R K Nagar) Piyush Goyal on Monday stormed the chief minister’s bastion R K Nagar, from where she is seeking re-election, and said she did nothing for the constituency.
Campaigning in support of BJP candidate M N Raja at R K Nagar, Goyal also came down hard on the Chief Minister, saying she did not have the time for her constituency during the December 2015 deluge even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi had come down “all the way” from Delhi.
“R K Nagar has a big opportunity for industrial growth and human resource development. But the chief minister did not do anything on these fronts,” he said.
“Can the Chief Minister not at least remove the wastage dumping ground from here (a long-pending local issue). Can the Chief Minister not provide clean drinking water to the people of her constituency,” he said.
