BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today alleged that the UPA Government has cheated the women of the country under the guise of the Nirbhaya Fund because not a single penny has been  spend from it.         

"When Nirbhaya died, the nation was shocked but the UPA government did nothing to check crime against women. It was only when the nation rose in united protest that the UPA government announced the Rs 1000 crore Nirbhaya Fund in its last budget," Modi said at rallies here.      

The government is, however, so cruel that it did not spend a single rupee for the safety and empowerment of women but in this year's budget, it again announced Rs 1000 crore under the same fund," he added.     

Modi asked both Sonia and Rahul Gandhi to "stop fooling people of the country but look around them to find out how safe women are. How can they stop crimes when most of the political leaders in jail are from the Congress," he claimed. 

In the North East, moreover, the maximum number of crimes against women is in the Congress-ruled states with Assam being ranked third in the country, Modi added.   

Referring to the killings of one-horned rhino, which is Assam’s pride, he said: "We have information that there is a Minister in Assam (who he refused to name) under whose directions jungles are being felled and rhinos being killed to settle down illegal migrants from Bangladesh.

They have also the audacity to claim that this part of their secular credentials. What does the rhino have to do with secularism?  We do not care if hundred governments have to go but we will not allow a single rhino to be killed."   

He claimed the Congress in their pursuit of vote-bank  politics has destroyed the state's resources as well as the  future of the youths there taking away their employment  opportunities.
