Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi went to Ahmedabad to watch a cricket match but did not visit the violence-hit Manipur as there was a crisis.
Addressing a rally in Shahpura in Rajasthan's Jaipur district ahead of the November 25 assembly polls Priyanka Gandhi said Manipur has been engulfed in ethnic violence for nearly seven months but the prime minister did not go there.
Instead, he (PM Modi) visited Ahmedabad to watch the cricket World Cup final between India and Australia.

"In the recent World Cup, our team reached the final with their hard work... Modi ji reached there so he might also get a bit of credit if the team wins," she said, adding the prime minister would go to a place where there is pride and honour, but would stay away from a crisis situation.
She alleged that Prime Minister Modi and the Centre waived the debts of big industrialists but neglected the poor. She also said mixing religion with politics is a sin. She alleged that the BJP-led governments at the Centre and in states are working for big industrialists, whereas the Congress government in Rajasthan provided relief to people from inflation by holding special camps.
Priyanka Gandhi addressed the public meeting in support of Congress candidates Manish Yadav and Indraj Gurjar. Assembly elections in Rajasthan will be held on November 25 and the votes will be counted on December 3.
