CM Vasundhara Raje reviews the preparations on the eve of PM Narendra Modi's Pachpadra visit in Barmer on Monday

"Congress and drought are twins. The project commencement work has been launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and I am sure he will also inaugurate the refinery in 2022 as the prime minister", Raje said.

He also spoke about the UjjwalaYojanafor cooking gas, and the significant progress made in electrification of 18,000 unelectrified villages.

Modi said: "Congress party has misled people by simply laying foundation stones for projects and has done nothing for the poor. After this programme, there will be awareness across the country that the people can't be misled merely by laying the foundation stones". Rajasthan Refinery is a joint venture of the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited and government of Rajasthan.

He was addressing the work commencement ceremony of the Rs 43,129 crore refinery project at Pachpadra in Barmer district on Tuesday in the presence of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Petroleum Minister Dharamendra Pradhan. We took the help of Army officers in this context and ensured that Rs 10,004 crore is deposited into their account.

Of this, four instalments totalling Rs 10,700 crore have already been made to defence personnel and the rest would also be paid soon, he said.

When we assumed office, one of the first things we did was to see what work has been done on promises in the Railway Budget. "There are several such areas in which they have been misleading the nation for years", Modi said.

Modi said his government does not believe in making mere announcements and takes up jobs only to bring them to logical ends.

Urging the country to work in unison, he said that this is a time for "Sankalp se Siddhi". He was a great man, who worked towards modernising Rajasthan.

Under Pradhan Mantri Ujjawala Yojna, Modi said, free LPG gas connection was provided to 3.3 crore families so that women do not have to suffer from pollution.

Attacking successive Congress governments, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the "Garibi Hatao" was an attractive slogan but doors of the banks never opened for the poor until the BJP came to power at the Centre.

He mentioned the Jan DhanYojana, and said that the poor have now gotaccess to banking facilities.

"Congress aur aakaal judwa bhai hain, jahan Congress jayegi wahan aakaal jayega (Congress and drought walk hand-in-hand, wherever Congress goes, droughts follow)", he said while praising chief minister Vasundhara Raje for tackling the drought situation in the state. The Rajasthan Refinery will be the first and one of a kind in the state.

He said, "I am elated to be in Rajasthan that too for a project that will bring happiness and prosperity to the lives of many".

The oil ministry in a separate statement last week said than the refinery will create indirect employment for 40,000 persons at the peak of its construction and direct employment for 1,000 persons. Later in the day, the Prime Minister will also address a public meeting.
