A screenshot of a tweet attributed to the chairperson of Reliance Foundation, Nita Ambani is being shared on social media. The tweet highlights the expenditure on Hajj pilgrimage by the government.
“3500 करोड़ हर वर्ष सरकार हज यात्रा पर खर्च नहीं करती तो…भारत के हर जिले में एक एम्स होता| यह आज तक कोई भी नहीं बोल सका” the tweet read.
(Translation: If the government did not spend 3500 crores every year on Haj pilgrimage… there would be an AIIMS in every district of India. Nobody could say this till today)
