BJP Prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today attacked the Congress alleging that it has not fullfilled its constitutional obligations and "destroyed" the nation in its nearly six decades rule.

Addressing a poll rally here, he also attacked UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi for claiming to have made laws in favour of the poor but not implementing them on ground.

"When Babashaeb Bhim Rao Ambedkar made the Indian constitution, was it to keep the people of the nation poor or to keep them illiterate. The Congress has not fulfilled its constitutional duties and responsibilities and has destroyed the country in the last 60 years," Modi said.

He took a dig at Sonia Gandhi, saying when she addressed the people here yesterday, she claimed that several laws have been made for the poor.

"If a gun licence instead of a gun is shown to a lion, he is not going to get scared and in the same way just making laws for poor was not enough and their implementation was also required," Modi said.

He said the UPA Government humiliated the poor of the country when it did not even listen to the Supreme Court and allowed several thousand tonnes of wheat to rot on railway stations.

"The rotting wheat was given to wine manufacturers at the rate of 80 paise but not given to the farmers," Modi alleged.

He also brought up the issue of inter-linking of rivers in the country, saying had the UPA worked on the dream project of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, districts such as Sikar would have been able to produce more through increased irrigation facilities.
