Yesterday launching a full-scale attack on the Siddaramaiah government Prime Minister Modi lashed out at Congress party for turning the Bengaluru into a “garbage city and valley of sin” from “Silicon Valley.” The Prime Minister said that Karnataka Government is waiting to turn the city into garbage city.
Countering his attack the Congress President Rahul Gandhi said the Prime Minister is very well equipped with the art of lying and blaming others but he is no good for work. Targeting Prime Minister on building cities he said to Prime Minister that this task seems difficult for you to accomplish and presented the data praising the Congress Government that Congress Government is committed to the development and has released 1100 % more funds to Karnataka’s cities compared to Modi Government. He also said that Prime Minister remark of calling Garden City as Garbage City is quite insulting.
According to the data released by Congress President, Modi Government has released Rupees 598 Crore only for developing urban infrastructure whereas Congress Government has released much larger amount of Rupees 6570 Crore .
Calling Bengaluru, the garden city & the pride of India a "garbage city" is insulting.
Building lies comes naturally to you, but you seem to find building cities very difficult.
The data nails your lies. pic.twitter.com/tv11ePK2qT

But what the facts say is completely opposite to what the Congress President have claimed. Let’s just throw a light on how Congress President is really expert at lying and blaming Modi Government.
According to the Ministry of Urban Development, ‘Urban Infrastructure’ should be equipped with all the necessary facilities. It should give a decent quality of life to its residents, promising clean and sustainable environment by applying smart solutions in the domain of sanitation, waste management, public transport and governance.
Several initiatives were launched by the Modi government to promote urban infrastructure in the country such as The Smart Cities Mission, Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) Project, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) or Housing for All by 2022 Mission, Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojana (HRIDAY), Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) and many more.
Under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) Project, Central Government has provided aid of Rupees 2318.79 crore to state which alone is more than the amount the Congress President claimed. As per government records. The Government of India has approved a State Annual Action Plan for Rs. 4,952.87 crore of which committed central assistance is Rs. 2,318.79 crore. Out of which 463.76 crore were released during the last three years (2015-16 to 2017-18) for projects. Under the smart cities mission according to records centre has provided assistance of almost 850 crores to Karnataka. These only two missions combined amount have busted Rahul Gandhi’s lies. Rest it is yet to be counted.
In Swachha Bharat Mission (Urban), Rs. 166.88 crore was released to Karnataka state government in past 3 years. Under the Pradhan Mantri Aawas Yojana (urban), a total of Rs. 1,771.32 crore were released in past 3 years in Karnataka as of 28th March 2018. For Namma Metro construction in Bengaluru, Rs. 1,220.24 crore was released and utilized for phase one over 3 years and Rs. 1,726.72 crore was released for phase two over three years.
These all facts were released by twitter user giving a tight slap to Congress President. So as per wrong claims of Congress President Central Government has provided total assistance of 8048.94 cr which is much larger than the amount released and claimed.
Under AMRUT: 2,318.79 cr
Under Smart Cities: 848 cr
Under SBM Urban: 166 cr
Under PMAY (Urban) : 1769 cr
Namma Metro Phase 1: 1220.43 cr
Namma Metro Phase 2: 1726.72 cr
Total: 8048.94 cr
This is released amount. Committed is much higher. RT MAXXXXX https://t.co/grSuX15vXT

Several other users have also exposed the Congress on its lies by asking the Congress president questions. One of the user questioned him that this amount of Rs 6,570 crore provided by Congress 5,950 crore is for metro which was approved in December 2017 which would mean it’s still not “Provided” Hence actual provided is 620 crore in 5 years vs 598 crore by BJP.
Facts Vs claims
Of the claimed 6,570 cr 5,950 cr is to metro.. which was approved in December 2017 means it's still not "Provided"

Can the Congress president provide the details where and how these funds are being used by his government? As per certain records the state has always not used the amount provided to them. So where actually the grant is going in whose pockets?
