Rahul Modi

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi addressed his first electoral rally in Assam, launched broadside attack against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Rahul reiterated his claims that violence in Assam ended during the 15 year reign of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi. On the other hand, he accused BJP of playing the politics of hatred to gain electoral mileage. Rahul went on to describe the Modi-government’s policies as ‘anti-poor, anti-labour and anti-farmer’.

“15 years ago before Gogoi ji became Assam’s CM, there was violence here, there was anger, tears, blood were being shed. After Gogoi ji became CM, Cong came and started work of putting this violence to an end,slowly the state started progressing,” he said.

“Elections are due soon, BJP will come to give speeches. Like Mr Modi had made false promises. Narendra Modi ji give huge speeches, ‘Make in India’, ‘Clean India’, every other day they launch a new slogan. Is there 1 person who has got a job because of Modi ji? He promised jobs to you when he was here,” Rahul added.

Accusing the Modi-government of being heavily funded by corporates, Rahul said, “This is a government being funded by corporates and is committed to work for them. You will never see a picture of him with farmers, holding hands of laborers.”

Further calling Narendra Modi an opportunist politician, Rahul said, “Why is Modi no visiting Bihar now? Once he lost, he did not turn towards Bihar. He ran away from there. These people are only to be seen when elections are round the corner.”

Akhilesh questions ‘intention’ behind deferring farm laws

Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has questioned the ‘intentions’ of the Modi government to defer farm laws by one and a half year.

“The BJP government has extended a proposal to defer the implementation of the farm laws for the next one and a half year. The move is illogical and without any rationale. Deferring implementation of the law will not change the consequences that will follow once the law is introduced,” he said.

Akhilesh further said, “By deferring implementation of the law, the BJP government is trying to counter popular public sentiment which is growing in favour of the agitating farmers and against the law makers. The government will eventually implement the laws before the elections in 2024 to benefit the capitalists.”

The SP president has directed the party leaders and workers to dedicate their Republic Day celebrations to farmers who are protesting against the new farm laws. He asked party men to reach the venues where Indian flag will be unfurled at the tehsil level on tractors carrying the Tricolour.

He said that by taking out tractor rallies, the SP workers and leaders will only reassert their support to the agitating farmers.

Akhilesh also attacked the ruling BJP for the delay in clearing cane dues of farmers, increase in power tariff and raids by power department officials on farmers for recovery of power dues.
