Indian PM Narendra Modi talks blockchain

In his second round of visit to the state, Congress president Rahul Gandhi held three rallies in the Garo Hills, telling voters that Meghalaya brings "music to the very soul of India".

"With the Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi scandals, we know that the government not only can not remove corruption, but it is also actively participating in it", he said."This government has, instead of giving hope, security and economic growth, dealt us only with hopelessness, unemployment, fear, hatred and violence", he added.

"You made common people stand in queues to deposit their money in the banks (referring to the note ban in 2016) and then let Nirav Modi (billionaire jeweller accused in Punjab National Bank's fraud case) run away with Rs 12,000 crore of people's money", Siddaramaiah tweeted. "I urge Narendra Modiji to bring Nirav Modi back along with the people's money the next time he goes overseas", the Congress chief said. "With the money, BJP bought many MPs, MLAs and people from the Congress party", he said. He said that with money, the BJP had become so arrogant that they think they can buy God also.

Appealing to the 18.31 lakh electorate in Meghalaya not to vote for the National People's Party (NPP) headed by Lok Sabha member Conrad Sangma, the Congress chief claimed the NPP is "working to become the B-team of BJP". Everyone can see the tremendous development here. Today, I promise you that we will not allow a repetition of Manipur in Meghalaya.

Replying to a question about the prime minister's office receiving a complaint against Nirav Modi, Shah said, "In January or February, I don't remember... an FIR was registered against Nirav Modi by the bank and this is the factual position". On behalf of the Congress, I assure you of this....

Speaking at the event via video conference, Modi said that cutting-edge technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain could significantly transform the way we work and live.
