He said there was a time when the country was reeling under shortage of money, but now there is no dearth of funds but a dearth of good leaders.

The BJP leader further said that in the last 10 years, India has seen a “development revolution”.

Asking people to vote for Tandon, he said, “This election is not for Tandon or any other person, but for the future of the country.”

“Under the right leadership, the country will progress and become a world leader,” said the union minister.

He further said people can see his government and ministry’s work for themselves. “My ministry has done work worth 50 lakh crore. I could do work worth 25 to 30 lakh crore more.”

He also cited the works done at Atal Tunnel, Ladakh, Leh and Srinagar, while adding that Asia’s largest tunnel is being constructed in Zojila at a cost of 12,000 crore.

“All this happened because you chose the BJP 10 years ago,” said Gadkari.

Meanwhile, Chandigarh Congress spokesperson Rajiv Sharma criticised the Union transport minister for not keeping his promise of solving the city’s traffic problems. Gadkari had assured of launching sky buses five years ago while seeking votes for Kirron Kher. “They had claimed there would be a revolution in local transportation but people of Chandigarh are still waiting for the promise to be fulfilled,” he said. Gadkari may have forgotten what he had promised but today he has come to Chandigarh again with new promises and slogans to mislead the people.
