New Delhi: Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday morning launched another attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking accountability for "Rs 33,000 crore" that he had "allocated to the Tata Nano project" when he was the chief minister of Gujarat.

Rahul once again took to Twitter and shared a news article, expounding how the production of Nano car, at the Sanand plant, had reduced to an average of two cars per day.

"Dealers of Tata Motors in most parts of the country have stopped placing orders for this small car in the last three-four months," the Business Standard report said.

"PM’s pet 'Make in India' project just died. 33,000 crores of Gujarati taxpayer money turned to ash. Who is accountable?" Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

This was the second occasion, in the last one month, when Rahul denounced Modi over the matter. Earlier, during his visit to Sanand, Rahul had asserted that "Modiji had given Rs 33,000 crore" to the Tata Group when they were looking for land to install their first Nano plant.

"UPA spent Rs. 33,000 crore on MGNREGA. Modiji gave that much money to one company (Tata) in this state," he said. "But did you get any benefit from the factory? Do you drive a Tata Nano? Do you have a Tata Nano at home? Did your children get employment in the factory?" he asked.
