Barmer (Raj), Nov 16 (PTI) Union minister Kailash Choudhary on Monday said development in the country began after Atal Bihari Vajpayee became the prime minister.
'The beginning of development started after Atal Bihari Vajpayee became the prime minister and people came to know what development means,' the Union minister of state for agriculture told a gathering during a visit to Barmer, his Lok Sabha constituency.
He said the road infrastructure developed after the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana was started by Vajpayee, the BJP stalwart.
Chaudhary visited several areas in Barmer, campaigning for the upcoming panchayati raj polls, and highlighted the achievements of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.
He asked people to vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidates in the polls and assured them that development will take place in their areas if the nominees of the saffron party win. PTI SDA RC
