Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, May 28 : Speaking at Congress’ ‘Speak Up India’ campaign on Thursday to take the voice of the poor, migrants, small businesses and the middle class to the Central government, Rahul Gandhi said: “India does not need debt, India needs money.”

The former Congress President said: “People need money. Every poor should be given Rs 7,500 for six months. MGNREGA should be extended for 200 days, MSMEs should be given a financial package and migrant workers walking back should be given proper transportation.”

The Congress campaign has asked all party workers to go online and raise the demands of the poor and migrants.

“Due to Covid-19, a storm has come in India, the poor have been hurt most. Migrant workers have to walk hungry for hundreds of kilometres across the country and the MSMEs, which provide jobs to crores of people, are shutting down,” Rahul Gandhi said.

The Congress asked its workers to start the campaign at 11 a.m. and demand that all migrants are provided transport to reach home safely. The party workers have also been told to demand raising employment days to 200 under MGNREGA, an immediate financial help of Rs 10,000 to the poor and a financial package for small industries.

The online campaign includes messages through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube accounts.

Akhilesh questions ‘intention’ behind deferring farm laws

Akhilesh Yadav Sad

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.
