Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled several projects worth 5,000 crore in Rajasthan, a state gearing up for elections and emphasized that these projects would contribute to the state's continued development.

As reported by PTI, during an event in the region, Modi initiated various development ventures across sectors such as transportation, healthcare, and education, in addition to laying the foundation stone for some of them.

“The projects started today will lead to further development. Together we have to make Rajasthan a developed and prosperous state," he said speaking at the function.

Meanwhile, PM Modi took a jibe at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and said, "People say 'lal diary' contains every black act of corruption by Congress."

Modi's remarks come as Sanjay Singh's apprehension becomes the second significant arrest in the case, following the earlier detention of former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
