New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi destroyed the country’s economy. He did not give 20 million jobs to the youth. He is losing the election.
According to Gandhi, the effect is visible on Modi’s face. Rahul Gandhi claimed, “I guarantee the employment of 22 lakh youth within a year after the formation of a Congress government.”
Rahul Gandhi said that the election was more than halfway through. “It is clear that Modi is losing the elections. Rights of farmers, corruption, employment and institutions are the main issues, he said. “That is why the BJP is losing the election,” he said.
The Congress president accused the prime minister of politicisation of the Army. He said that the Army belongs to India and not a particular person. Gandhi said the Army, Navy and Air Force were not the personal properties of Modi. “When Modi says that surgical strikes were like video games at the time of UPA, he insulted the Army, not the Congress,” Gandhi said.
Talking about the Congress promise of NYAY, Gandhi said when people get the money, they will make purchases. This will improve the economy.
Gandhi asked Modi what the latter would do for the youth and women, after withdrawing the subsidy.
The Congress president referred to the GST once again as the Gabbar Singh Tax.
But his final comment took the cake. Not the one where Gandhi alleged that the Modi government was involved in a scam of Rs 30,000 crore in the Rafale deal or when the Congress president said the chowkidar was himself a thief, his party’s slogan this election season. Or when he said all that money has gone to Anil Ambani.
It was also not when the Congress president said that the Rafale case was going on in the Supreme Court and that he apologised to the Supreme Court for misrepresenting its decision to admit some documents as evidence. It was not when he insisted, he had not apologised to the BJP or Modiji, or when he said the Congress would continue with the slogan “chowkidar chor hai”!
It was when Gandhi said he could debate issues with Prime Minister Modi for 10 minutes (earlier, it was 15) anywhere but in Anil Ambani’s house!
