New Delhi, January 11: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi addressed Jan Vedna Sammelan by CWC at today at New Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium. The convention aims to discuss Party’s next move to protest against PM Modi-led demonetisation move and suffering caused to people.
Continuing his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue of demonetisation, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that the ‘achhe din’ promised by the BJP will come only in 2019 “when Congress comes to power”.
He said the demonetisation move was not RBI’s decision but a “personal decision” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and caused immense suffering to nation and country has gone far behind 16 years. Automobile sector growth purged to 16 year low. People of country are wondering when are ‘Acche din going to come’. I’ll tell them it will come when Congress comes to power again, said Rahul.
Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP leaders for accusing Congress for its performance in 70 years, Rahul said: People of country know what leaders of Congress have done for the nation. We do not need to explain what we did or didn’t do for last 70 years. I can name state after state where Congress workers and leaders have sacrificed their sweat and blood. People of the country understand the blood and tears that our leaders have given for this country.
Speaking at the Jan Vedna convention of the Congress, Rahul Gandhi said the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh were undermining the constitutional institutions like Reserve Bank of India, judiciary and the Election Commission. This is what BJP has done under PM Modi’s leadership in 2 1/2 years we couldn’t do! In 70 years Congress have respected all the institutions in its tenure.
Rahul further added it is the first time in the history of India that post of Prime Minister of India is being ridiculed across the globe. . Prime Minister needs to spend some time with the poor, farmers of the country and ask them why suddenly people are running to villages.
He continued his guns against Prime Minister and said “Today I read in newspaper that PM will transform India. But PM needs to ask himself why suddenly auto sales have fallen?
Rahul sternly said voice of India cannot be curbed and Congress supports India’s Voice. When a judge sits he represents the spirit of the people of the country and We respect institution. Media is constrained under Modi rule and this is untolerable.
PM has broken back bone of Indian financial system with Demonetisation. PM Modi knows now yoga, Skill India and Make in India cannot save the Noteban flak.
He said My yoga guru told me one who practice Yoga can do padmasan but PM fails to do padmaasan, I have noticed.
Two and a half years back, PM asked everyone to join Swacch Bharat plan and the drama continued for a few days. Then came Make in India and Skill India and nothing happened.
Party spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil before the address said: There will be discussions. Every member will express views and share ideas. The party will also pay respect to all those who lost their lives due to demonetization.
Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other senior party leaders are also present at the convention.
