Jan Aakrosh Rally: Congress president Rahul Gandhi accuses PM Modi of lying, destroying democratic institutions


Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of lying while asserting that the people of India are unhappy with the Modi government. “When PM Modi speaks, people have to search hard for shreds of truth within his speeches. I interact with many people around the country. Whenever I ask them if they are happy with the Modi Govt, the reply is a resounding NO,” Rahul Gandhi said while addressing the ‘Jan Aakrosh Rally’.  “The RSS is slowly taking over our democratic institutions and destroying them from within while PM Modi watches silently,” he added.

While hitting out at PM Modi over the Kathua and Unnao rape cases, Rahul Gandhi said, “For the first time in 70 years, the Indian prime minister had to speak about an issue in which a BJP MLA attacked a woman and a small child was attacked in Jammu and Kashmir”.  Taking a jibe over the same, Gandhi said, “PM Modi says “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”. Ironically, the members of his own party are assaulting women”.

From farmers’ distress to attack on democratic institutions, from Chinese aggression to Dalit atrocities, the Congress president hit out at the BJP government over various issues. “I met PM Modi myself and asked him to waive off farm loans. He refused and said that waiving off farm loans is not their policy. Only the Congress Party can support the farmers of India and protect their interests,” he said.

“Under PM Modi, for the first time in the history of our country, Supreme Court judges have had to reach out to people for justice. Atrocities against Dalits have drastically risen under PM Modi but he hasn’t spoken a word about this yet. The Chinese are aggressively pursuing militarisation in Doklam. Despite this, all that PM Modi does is hold a “no-agenda” meeting with the Chinese President,” the Congress president said.

While concluding his speech, Rahul Gandhi gave a very powerful message loaded with confidence that the Congress will emerge victorious in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. “The Congress will win every election from now on and will also emerge victorious in 2019,” he said.
