In a fresh salvo against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the Railways, airports, ports, roads and electricity, everything is being granted to only “two people" in the country, who worship PM Modi while the common people, who do ‘tapasya’, get nothing from the government.
“Those who do ‘Tapasya’ do not get anything from the government. Two people worship PM Modi throughout the day and get whatever they want. Railways, airports, ports, roads, electricity everything is being made available to them," said Gandhi during his visit to Mahakal Mandir in Ujjain as part of the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

The Congress leader went on to add: “India has always been a country of ascetics. Today, the Prime Minister is insulting the austerity of crores of Indians."
While addressing the public, Gandhi invoked Bhagwat Gita and mentioned that one should do ‘tapasya’ and not worry about the ‘fal’ (result). The leader asked PM Modi to give the result to the real ‘tapasvis’.
