Road transport minister Nitin Gadkari has hit back at Congress president Sonia Gandhi claiming she was 'misleading' the country on the land bill and blamed the erstwhile UPA government for keeping the country back for the past ten years.

While replying to Gandhi's letter which says Modi's land acquisition bill is against the poor and  an "unabashed display of half truths".

Despite the regulation on land acquisition in place for the last year no land was acquired to build rural roads, irrigation, power facilities, schools, hospitals in the villages by the UPA,"Gadkari replyed by justifying the bill.

He also accused the UPA government of bringing down the industrial employment by 70 lakh during its first five years.
