Rahul mounts attack on PM at Jan Akrosh rally

Published On : 29 Apr 2018

New Delhi, (PTI) Congress president Rahul Gandhi launched a fusillade on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government on Sunday, questioning why the country's "chowkidar" (gatekeeper) was silent on issues of graft and weakening of institutions

Addressing his party's 'Jan Aakrosh' rally, Gandhi said the prime minister also did not speak on the case of judge BH Loya and agrarian distress

"Modi ji did not speak a single word on Doklam during his visit to China. What kind of prime minister is he?" asked Gandhi at the rally held at Ramilia Maidan in New Delhi

Further targeting the prime minister, Gandhi sought to compare the performance of the governments led by his party with that of the Modi dispensation at the Centre

"Prime Minister Modi gave unemployment, 'Gabbar Singh Tax' (the term the Congress coined for the Goods and Services Tax to target the government), BJP MLA inflicted atrocities on women (Unnao rape case) in his tenure," Gandhi said

Gandhi claimed the Congress united all sections of society and spread love in 70 years unlike the BJP, which allegedly attacked Dalits and minorities

Gandhi charged that farmers were under stress, but their loans were not written off by the government, which, he added, waived of debts of corporate houses.

"I met him on the agrarian issues. But he did not listen to us," the Congress president charged

Gandhi exuded confidence that his party will emerge victorious in Karnataka, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh assembly polls and defeat the BJP in the 2019 general polls

He also said that the Congress will respect veteran and young leaders of the party alike and that it will allow different views to emerge.

He was apparently referring to the remarks of senior party leader Salman Khurshid, who had recently said that there were Muslims' blood stains on hands of Congress. The party had distanced itself from Khurshid's views

Gandhi also hailed Congress workers, saying they have laid their lives for "truth and the country" and described them as "sher ka bachha" (lion cubs)

Referring to the incident in which an aircraft carrying him to Karnataka's Hubballi nose dived before landing safely, Gandhi said he thought of God at that time and added he will undertake Kailash Mansarovar yatra after the Karnataka polls.

Rahul mounts attack on PM at Jan Akrosh rally

Published On : 29 Apr 2018

New Delhi,(PTI) Hitting out at the Congress over its 'Jan Akrosh' rally, BJP president Amit Shah today said it was in fact a 'Parivar Akrosh' rally that highlights increasing irrelevance of a "dynasty and their courtiers", who have been sent out of power from one state after another in elections.

The Congress has organised a 'Jan Akrosh' rally in the national capital today to highlight "failures" of the Modi government.

In a series of tweets, Shah took a dig at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and hoped that Gandhi would apologise to the nation for his party's efforts to trample over every possible institution in the country just because of its "power hungry" nature.

The country is tired of these "negative" and "arm twisting" tactics of the Congress, he said.

During the rally, Shah said, "abject India-hatred" would be on display as the Congress cannot digest that 125 crore Indians have seen through their "anti-development and highly divisive politics" and it efforts to create divisions are fully exposed.

"A dynasty and their courtiers, who were sent out of state after state by 'Jan Aadesh' now pretend to represent 'Jan Akrosh.'

Today's Congress rally is nothing but a Parivar Akrosh Rally' which highlights their increasing irrelevance," he said.

If the Congress wants to see Jan Akrosh' (people's anger), they should see the results of election after election, where it has been comprehensively defeated across the length and breadth of India, he said.

"People are not tolerating Congress' lies, empty promises, corruption and communalism," he said.

"If the Congress really wants to know why there is 'Jan Akrosh', they should answer why did they disallow Parliament to function and why it has prevented the formation of an OBC commission that gives justice to backward sections," Shah said.

The BJP president also posted the link of a story, which said all villages in the country have now been electrified, and claimed that while the entire nation is celebrating power for every single village, the Congress is "mourning" the loss of power for one family.
