Dholpur, Oct 9: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday targetted the Narendra Modi government over a range of issues from the attacks against migrant workforce in Gujarat to the Rafale row.
Gandhi, who is on a two-day visit to poll-bound Rajasthan, said that “Youth of Rajasthan, MP, UP are assaulted and mistreated in Gujarat. You had trusted Narendra Modi, hoping that he will provide employment, but he broke your trust. We will form your government”.
“We govern with love and harmony while they govern with hatred and polarisation. BJP talks about their ‘Mann ki Baat’, we listen to your ‘Mann ki Baat’.”
Continuing his attack over Rafale Fighter Jet deal, Gandhi said that “PM Modi claimed he wants to be ‘Chowkidar’, but who does he really want to protect? UPA wanted to buy 126 fighter aircraft to strengthen national security, but the Prime Minister changed the deal to 36 aircraft”.
The Prime Minister hiked the price of the aircraft from ₹526Cr/aircraft to ₹1600Cr/aircraft. Anil Ambani who never manufactured a single aircraft in his life was given the deal. He accompanied PM Modi to France when the deal was finalised
The Congress President made these remarks while addressing a public gathering in Dholpur.
“PM Modi promised 2 crore jobs. Instead, he crushed small businesses and the economy with Demonetisation and Gabbar Singh Tax. All his policies are only to help and protect 15-20 industrialists”.
Gandhi further said that “farmers are demanding facilities from banks but they’re denied because of debt”.
Why can’t Narendra Modi waive farm loans when he can waive loans worth ₹3 lakh crore of 15-20 corporates?, he asked.
