RAIPUR: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Saturday hit back at Modi’s criticism of Prime Minister Narendra on ‘revdi’ or gift culture by saying loan waiver by big industrialists should then be called ‘rabdi’ “.

Revdi and rabdi are both types of candy.

Speaking at the inauguration of the new Saragarh-Bilaigarh district, Baghel said people should understand the intentions of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

“When the Chhattisgarh Congress government buys rice at Rs 2,500 from farmers, gives Rs 7,000 to (landless) workers, gives 35 kg of rice to the poor, halves the electricity bill for consumption ranging from up to 400 units and offers free education, they (BJP) call it revdi (gifts),” he said.

“When we waive farmer loans, you call it revdi, but when Rs 10 lakh crore loans from top ten industrialists are waived, then it’s not revdi, it’s milk cake. It’s rabdi “, said the CM.

If the BJP returned to power in Chhattisgarh “by mistake”, it would never pay 2,500 rupees for paddy, or halve electricity bills, Baghel claimed.

The BJP is demanding votes on behalf of the cow but opposes the Chhattisgarh government’s cow dung sourcing scheme, Baghel claimed.

At the event, he performed a groundbreaking ceremony for infrastructure works worth Rs 540 crore in the new district, which would be the 30th in the state.

Later that day, he inaugurated Khairagarh-Chhuikhadan-Gandai (KCG) as the 31st district at a reception in Khairagarh.
