Rahul Gandhi alleges PM Modi for lying to people about detention centres

Rahul Gandhi is pointing to the existence of a detention centre in Matia, Assam, to accuse Prime Minister Narendra Modi of lying about the construction of such buildings.

According to the sources the Matia detention centre located in Goalpora district, and found that nearly two-thirds of the construction had been completed.

This weekend, PM Modi said there had been no talks on a pan-India NRC -- a citizenship verification drive that has so far been implemented only in Assam -- and accused the Congress and others of spreading the rumour that Muslims would be sent to detention centres.

"The RSS's prime minister is lying to Bharat Mata," Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet on Thursday.

The Matia detention centre is being built at a cost of over Rs 46 crore; it will have the capacity to hold 3,000 detainees.
