Vehemently criticising the BJP-led central government for not doling out even a single rupee for relief of flood victims of Saurashtra, the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) on Saturday said that a package of Rs 2,000 crore was required for relief and rehabilitation of flood-hit people in the region.

Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee president Bharatsinh Solanki, speaking at a public function in Anand, said that the flood-hit people were having a difficult time with the Centre turning a blind eye towards them and the state government’s assistance being inadequate.


AICC general secretary and Gujarat in-charge Gurudas Kamat, speaking on the occasion, said the BJP came to power by giving false promises to the people and it had now been exposed with its failure to bring back black money of Indians stashed in foreign banks, check price rise and corruption in government departments.

Nationalist Congress Party state president and sitting MLA Jayant Patel, who also shared the dais with Congress, declared to fight the forthcoming local bodies elections in October in collaboration with the Congress and extended support to Congress candidates in Anand and Kheda districts.
