Rahul Gandhi says PM Modi did not talk on corruption
Today in a press conference in Ahmedabad, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said that his party has taken the Bharatiya Janata Party head on and is confident of coming to power in Gujarat.
BJP is worried. BJP’s model of development has been hollow and the people of Gujarat has realised it. They claimed a lot in 22 years but are unable to tell the people what they have done.
After the first phase voting in Gujarat on December 9, we are confident to form the government in the state. After 22 years Congress has stood on its own feet. Now Congress is speaking by standing in front of the BJP and challenging it.
BJP did not stick to its position on the claim of development. Even in his last election meeting, PM Narendra Modi had no agenda to talk except curse Congress and or speak about himself. Formerly he claimed to die fighting corruption. PM was silent on the scam in the Rafale deal and the alleged spike in Jay Shah’s business rise. They shifted their position as the campaign progressed added Rahul.
Rahul futher said Whatever decision we will take, we will do so after talking to the people. We will not take unilateral decisions. If your intention is good you can do anything. Our record is there. We don’t talk in the air. We have done in the past too by waiving the farm loans of Rs 75,000 crore during UPA I rule claimed Rahul.
He asked Modi’s record on implementation of poll promises saying he had promised to put Rs 15 lakhs in the account of each individual and to provide 2 crore jobs every year, which he failed to deliver.
BJP rule of Gujarat had only helped a handful of people.In the last 22 years, Modiji and (Chief Minister Vijay) Rupaniji have initiated only one-sided development , benefitting 5 to 10 people.
Rahul claimed elections are won on narrative and on issues. One who maintains the narrative wins the elections. They have not been able to maintain the narrative he claimed.
Rahul Gandhi said his party has changed itself in the state.
He said that no nasty or filthy language will be tolerated against the Prime Minister.
I have cleared my position through my words and also through action. The way Mani Shankar Aiyar attacked Prime Minister, I am not going to tolerate such comments against the post of Prime Minister. And you all saw the action Gandhi said.
Slamming Modi for his barbs against his predecessor, the Congress leader said, What the Prime Minister said about Manmohan Singhji is untenable. He was Prime Minister of the nation and has done a lot for it.Congress President said his priorities will be to change the nature of the politics. Politics should not be ugly and nasty. There is a lot of anger in politics these days, but politics should be carried with love he said. Asked on Modi attacking him in public rallies, Gandhi said that he will not use any such words for the Prime Minister.
Modiji always keeps on screaming against political opponents. He even used a lot of words for me. But I am not going to use any filthy language against him because he is the Prime Minister he said.
Gandhi also described the seaplane ride of Modi as a trick to distract the attention of the people from the real issues.
If Modiji is travelling in seaplane then there is nothing wrong in it. But it is a distraction. The real question is what has he done for Gujarat in last 22 years? Gandhi asked
