You can call me Pappu but I don’t hate you: Rahul Gandhi

Rahul said You have anger for me. For you, I’m Pappu, But I have no anger for you, I am Congress

New Delhi: INC president Rahul Gandhi on Friday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government over unfulfilled promises and “jumla strike” during the ongoing debate over the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha.

The Congress leader also hit out at BJP over demonetisation and goods and services tax in his speech, the most important ever since he became the main opposition party’s president.

The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) and Shiv Sena boycotted the ongoing no-confidence motion against the government, which will help the ruling dispensation on numbers.

And, a senior AIADMK leader said the party will vote for the government and against the opposition’s motion. It will come as a major boost to the government if all the 37 MPs of the party do vote and change the numbers in the House. However, some reports suggested the party is divided.

Rahul Gandhi targets PM Modi, defence minister Sitharaman over the Rafale deal. “The defence minister said there is secrecy pact with France on Rafale deal. I personally met PM of France and asked him if any such pact existed. He clearly said there is no pact,” Gandhi said.

Rahul Gandhi targets Union minister Jayant Sinha for felicitating lynching convicts in Jharkhand, drawing BJP lawmakers’ ire. Why doesn’t the PM speak up, asks Gandhi on lynchings. These incidents aren’t just on a person, they are attacks on BR Ambedkar. We won’t stand this, says Gandhi.

Sinha had last week expressed his “regret” after facing intense criticism for felicitating seven convicted cow vigilantes in Jharkhand’s Hazaribagh last week.

PM and Amit Shah are two very different type of politicians. We can see ourselves being in and out of power. The PM and the BJP president can simply not afford to lose power. PM And Amit Shah act out of fear. It is this anger that is being transmitted to India, Gandhi said.

I’m grateful to BJP and RSS that they’ve explained the meaning of Congress, and of being an Indian, says Rahul in his address. You have anger for me. For you, I’m Pappu. But I have no anger for you. I am Congress, Rahul added.

While concluding speech, Rahul Gandhi walks across to PM Modi, hugs him and shakes his hand.
