It was for the first time, Modi used a public meeting to criticise Congress which is opposing new jantri rates and termed its stand as 'pro-black money' and expressed surprise as how come a political party could agitate against measures taken against black money.

The ATVT scheme launched by Modi on Thursday is a pro-active approach of the state government to address public grievances at taluka level.
