New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday cited a media report on a drop in the production of ‘Nano’ cars at a Gujarat plant and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet ‘Make in India’ project “just died" turning Gujarati tax payers’ Rs33,000 crore into “ash".

Gandhi also asked who should be held accountable for the money becoming “ash". The Congress vice president has reportedly been saying that the Gujarat government had offered “benefits" worth Rs33,000 crore to the car project in Sanand.
