PM does not understand economics: Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi Savarkar

Jaipur: In a big attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused him of tarnishing the pluralistic image of the nation in the world and said that the Modi does not understand economics as the Congress scion addressed the ‘Yuva Aakrosh’ rally here at Albert Hall.

Rahul Gandhi also called upon the youth to remain unafraid and said “Together, we will change Hindustan”.

Gandhi said, “Around one crore youths in the nation lost their jobs, however, Prime Minister is silent on the issue. Modi gives long speeches on CAA, NRC and NPR but prefers to remain silent on the issue of unemployment,” he said adding, “the growth rate during UPA tenure stood at 9 per cent which has come down to below 5 per cent despite the fact that parameters to calculate the GDP were changed. If we calculate it as per earlier parameters, it will be around 2.5 per cent.”

Gandhi further said that economy gets a boost when poor and farmers get money as they start purchasing.

“However, Modi doesn’t understand this basic fact as he does not understand/study economics, Rahul added.

The former Congress president further said that Hindustan has crores of youths as its biggest resource. Even the world believes that Indian youths can change the world.

Earlier, entire world used to come to invest in India as they trusted Indian youths. However in present days, they do not want to invest in India due to increasing violence.

Once, Obama said that the US can’t compete with China, but world knew that only India can compete China, he said.

“All European countries – America, Japan, Australia, and other nations are watching China growing fast, and they know this country needs to be balanced and they know only Indian youths can compete with China.

He further said that India once used to be a peaceful nation, however, now, we read in newspapers that there is violence in country and people of the same nation are fighting each other as the government is spreading violence.

So investors are wary of investing in India, he added.

Attacking Modi in three steps, Rahul said that first, Modi took around Rs 3.50 lakh crore from people’s pocket and gave it to 15-20 rich people.

Secondly, the reputation of India in the world, the image of the country known for promoting brotherhood and unity, was tarnished by Narendra Modi. Now, world considers India as a rape capital but PM never speaks on this.

Thirdly, the youths’ voices are suppressed when they ask PM why India’s image has been tarnished in the world, why unemployment is rising in the country and what you did in last five years for youths?

Challenge prime minister to go to any university and answer students’ questions on unemployment and slowdown, Rahul said Modi will surely be unable to answer, but yes, he can show people fake dreams, of giving 2 crore jobs.

“I am here to give you a message,” he said, adding, “I want to assure you that you have that strength and vision which can change the fate of the nation. The entire world is looking at you, not only Congress but the world looks at you.”

“I am confident that made in India, made in Jaipur, made in Rajasthan can compete with made in China.

“You should never allow your voice to be suppressed, what you speak is correct, you need not be scared, you continue asking questions on unemployment, your future and country’s future.”

Next important thing we all should remember is that we have one flag that represents all Indians, Rahul said.

Those who try to divide india, should realise that Indians can’t be divided, this is an insult to this flag and it should be stopped, he said.

“Our culture and history, ideology of Mahatma Gandhi, should be our ideology. When world watches us, it should know that this country can lead the world and show the way of character and morality,” he said.

Concluding his speech, Rahul said, “I am here to give this message to you, now it is your responsibility, you need not be scared. We have the most powerful force with us, which is Indian youths. Don’t be scared as together we shall change this Hindustan.”

Akhilesh Yadav

Lucknow/New Delhi, July 10 : The opposition parties on Friday slammed the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter of dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey, while being brought back to the state from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain.

Former Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav took to twitter and wrote, “Actually. his car has not overturned, but the government has been saved from turning over the secret.”

His remarks came soon after Dubey died on Friday morning after being critically injured in an alleged shootout with the STF officials on Friday morning near Kanpur. The gangster was shot when he reportedly tried to flee, following a road accident in which the vehicle he was travelling in overturned near Kanpur. Dubey was taken to the emergency ward of the Hallett Hospital. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kanpur Dinesh Kumar said that the doctors have confirmed the death of Vikas Dubey.

Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) leader Jayant Chaudhary also slammed the BJP government over the “encounter rule” in the state and urged all the judges to resign. “After Vikas Dubey”s encounter, all the judges of the country should resign. There is no need of court in BJP”s encounter rule,” Chaudhary said in a series of tweets. “All this drama has been created to save the real culprits of killing eight policemen,” the RLD leader said in another tweet.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Kumar Jha also criticised the Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter saying the “black truth” of the entire “syndicate” has also been “encountered” along with Dubey. “If the news of the Vikas Dubey death in the encounter is true, then accept that the black truth of the entire syndicate has also been encountered. The system has saved itself from being naked. How the story is so simple from yesterday”s visuals of Mahakal temple to the story till today morning. Proceed with this as the final truth (sic),” Jha tweeted.

According to reports, as the convoy bringing Dubey from Madhya Pradesh”s Ujjain reached the Bhauti area under the Barra police circle in Kanpur on Friday morning, the vehicle in which Vikas was seated, overturned after skidding on the road due to heavy rain.

Dubey, along with two other police personnel in the vehicle, was injured in the accident. As soon as the gangster was taken out of the vehicle, he allegedly snatched a pistol from the STF team and tried to fire at the police. He was fatally injured in retaliatory firing. Dubey received a bullet injury in the chest which proved fatal. Five members of the Dubey gang have been killed in police encounters over the past seven days.
