Modi 'most expensive watchman' in the world, says Congress

February 24 (ANI): World's costliest "chowkidar" (watchman) is Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said Congress on Saturday.

Speaking to ANI, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala shot several questions at the Prime Minister, first regarding the connection between the accused businessmen and PM Modi, "Prime Minister Modi has not said one word about Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi whom he affectionately calls as "Humare Mehul bhai".

Modi also launched helicopter services between Daman and Diu - to be operated by Pawan Hans Ltd - at an event here.

Somnath temple and Gir forest are located around 80 kilometres from Diu. Ahmedabad to Diu road journey takes 12 hours and the air connectivity cuts the travel time to just an hour.

The PM is also scheduled to distribute e-rickshaws to women and scooters to differently-abled persons.

The PM also announced to abolish Value-Added Tax on the fishermen community so that they can earn full profits. "Daman and Diu have now joined the mainstream of development".

Lauding Daman for being an open defecation free area, Modi congratulated the locals and administration for achieving the "big step".

Modi launched housing and food schemes for industrial labourers of this industrialised town.

What is the connection of Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi with the honourable Prime Minister?

"Our entire emphasis on the "blue revolution" is inspired by the commitment to bring a positive difference in the lives of fishermen", he said.

Breaking his silence over the '11,400 crore fraud in PNB, Mr Modi on Friday warned of stringent action against those involved in financial irregularities and said loot of public money will not be tolerated.

Modi also laid the foundation stones for a slew of projects, including a water treatment plant, a gas pipeline, an electric sub-station, a municipal market and a foot-bridge for the union territory.
