Delhi: Addressing a massive public gathering at Bharat Bachao Rally at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that he won’t apologise for stating the truth. He was referring to his reported statement at a rally in Jharkhand in which he had commented on the increasing incidents of rape in the country.
He stated “I was told in Parliament by BJP yesterday ‘Rahul ji, you gave a speech. Apologise for that.’ I was told to apologise for something which is right. My name is not Rahul Savarkar. My name is Rahul Gandhi. I will never apologise for truth,”
It is Narendra Modi and his assistant Amit Shah who has to apologise to the country for destroying India’s economy, he added.
Launching a scathing attack on PM Modi and the ruling BJP, Rahul Gandhi said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has single-handedly destroyed India’s economy. If you calculate by the old method, the current GDP is 2.5%, says Rahul.
Hinting at crony capitalism, Rahul Gandhi said, in the last 5 years, PM Modi gave Adani 50 contracts including handing him over the airports.
“It is Prime Minister Modi himself and not India’s enemies who have destroyed our economy, and he still calls himself a patriot. Narendra Modi in only concerned about power… there just should be enough marketing, he should be on TV all day.” Rahul Gandhi added.
Commenting on the bias in the media Rahul Gandhi said media has forgotten its duty. He said, “the advertisements on TV costs lakhs of rupees but PM Modi is constantly shown on TV every day. Who is giving all this money? This money is being given by those people whom Modi ji is giving your money.”
Commenting on the tumultuous situation in North East following the passage of CAB, Rahul Gandhi said the BJP works towards dividing people for their own political interests. “The country knows the situation today. They work to create divides – between religions – in J&K, in the northeast. Go to Assam, Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh. Go and see what Narendra Modi did there, he has set ablaze those regions.”
