Hoshiarpur, May 13: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) of cheating the people of India with lies and false propaganda.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his BJP had cheated the people of India with their lies and false propaganda while the Congress has always remained true to its promises,” Gandhi said at an election rally in Khanna town.
“This chowkidar has been exposed, the people know the truth about him and he can no longer escape for perpetrating theft of their hard-earned money with demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax.
Continuing his attack, the Congress leader stated “People will not forgive Modi for being a mute spectator when Dalits and minorities were attacked, youths were deprived of jobs and scholarships, farmers committed suicide or thrown behind bars and the money of the people was stolen from them”.
He promised that no farmer of any state, religion or caste will go to jail for defaulting on bank loans.
While campaigning in support of party candidates Amar Singh from Fategarh Sahib, Raj Kumar Chabbewal from Hoshiarpur and Santokh Singh Chaudhary from Jalandhar, Gandhi described the elections as an ideological fight between false promises and realistic commitments.
