While campaigning in Chirang ahead of the Assembly Elections in Assam, Home Minister Amit Shah vowed to fulfil every single promise made in Bodo agreement before 2022 “for a peaceful Assam”. “Rahul Baba is in Assam as a tourist nowadays. He says Badruddin Ajmal is Assam’s identity. You tell me if Ajmal is Assam’s identity or Bhupen Hazarika, Upendra Nath & Shankar Dev. Black Mountain Badruddin Ajmal can’t be Assam’s identity,” the Home Minister said.
We fought a general election under his (Gandhi’s) presidentship only once, and we were defeated in a big way. After a defeat, people put the blame on others, but Rahul Gandhi accepted responsibility and resigned. But what happened? The Congress Working Committee and all states asked him (Gandhi) to be president.
While PM Modi addressed a rally in Assam’s Chabua, Rahul Gandhi was in poll-bound state’s Jorhat district. He hit out at the NDA government and said, “During UPA govt, gas cylinders’ cost was Rs 400, now under NDA, it is Rs 900. Who benefits from this? Not the poor, only India’s 2-3 industrialists. Their taxes, loans are waived off while nothing is being done for you”.
Though Congress symbol is there in the document, actually it is the people’s manifesto. It contains the aspirations of the people of Assam. We are aware that the RSS and BJP are attacking diverse cultures of this nation. Attacking our languages, history, our way to thinking, our way of being. So this manifesto provides a guarantee that we will defend the idea of the state of Assam.
Indian National Congress (INC) leader Rahul Gandhi released the party manifesto Saturday, ahead of the Assam assembly election 2021. Key promises made include monetary compensation for housewives across the state, an anti-Citizenship Amendment Act law and an increase in wages for tea plantation workers.
Democracy is declining. Youth are unemployed, farmers are protesting, CAA is there. We can’t ask the people of Assam to forget their culture, language if they come to Delhi. People from different cultures, languages, religions make up India. One force, born in Nagpur, trying to control the whole country. If the country’s future (students) cannot openly talk to the Prime Minister, then there is no doubt that something somewhere is wrong.
BJP wants to run Assam from Nagpur (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s Headquarters). They want outsiders to come and (take over) take what is yours as they took your airport. We want to run Assam from Assam only. Our Chief Minister will work after listening to the people of Assam and would have nothing to do with Nagpur. During the floods, you (the voter) cannot give him anything so he does not come but during elections, you can give him votes, so he comes.
Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi used to have elections and used to win them. It wasn’t like there was no voting but there was no institutional framework to protect that vote. An election is not simply people going and pressing a button on a voting machine. An election is about narrative. An election is about institutions that make sure that the framework in the country is operating properly, an election is about the judiciary being fair and a debate taking place in parliament. So you need those things for a vote to count.
There is a group of about 20 people in the Congress who have different views but do you think they can exist in the BJP, the BSP or the TMC… No, they cannot exist in any other party except the Congress. Neither the BJP nor the BSP or any other political parties have elections but I understand that the Congress has a bigger responsibility, and we should absolutely have elections and absolutely elect our leaders.
India is no longer a Democratic Country – Rahul Gandhi with reference to Sweden institute’s Democracy Report
“India is no longer a democratic country,” Rahul Gandhi said in his tweet as he shared a news clipping which read ‘India now as autocratic as Pakistan, worse than Bangladesh: Sweden institute’s Democracy Report’. In what could invite a sharp response from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that India was no longer a democratic country.
He (Scindia) would have become the chief minister had he stayed with Congress but has become a backbencher in the BJP. Scindia had the option to strengthen the organisation by working with Congress workers. I told him — one day you will become the chief minister. But he chose another route. Write it down, he will never become chief minister there. He will have to come back here for that. – (Rahul Gandhi)
The Congress, which describes itself as secular, forms an alliance with the ISF in Bengal, it joins the Muslim League in Kerala and Badruddin’s party in Assam. It (the Congress) has no ideology. Its only ideology is corruption and nepotism and to come to power anyhow. Such alliances highlight the Congress’ “double speak and utmost hypocrisy. Rahul had once said that ‘yes, we are a party of Muslims’. But it is not even a party of Muslims, it is only a party of the family.
Rahul Gandhi insults North Indians in the South and their MPs insults South Indians – Union Minister Prahlad Singh Patel
These people who were earlier saying why they did not take the vaccine before, are now raising questions. Instead of seeing PM’s dedication, they are observing Assam’s ‘Gamchas’. Congress leaders should not insult the people of Assam, Puducherry and Kerala. Everyone knows the most number of nurses come from which states of the country. They should avoid such statements. Rahul Gandhi insults North Indians in the South and their MPs insults South Indians. So the party should decide among themselves what should be said.
Terming the Emergency that was imposed by former prime minister Indira Gandhi a “mistake”, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said what happened during that period was “wrong”, but it was fundamentally different from the current scenario as the Congress at no point attempted to capture the country’s institutional framework. Asked about his views on the Emergency, he said, “I think that was a mistake. Absolutely, that was a mistake. And my grandmother (Indira Gandhi) said as much.”
Grateful to him (Rahul Gandhi) for driving the tractor for farmers and swimming in the sea for fish workers – Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan
Rahul Gandhi’s expertise in scuba diving has been the talk of the town in Kerala. His venture into the deep sea with YouTube channel ‘Fishing Freaks’ has been happily lapped up by social media. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who is rarely sarcastic, expressed ‘gratitude for Rahul’s love for Kerala.’ “Grateful to him for driving the tractor for farmers and swimming in the sea for fish workers,” he said. The CM’s one-liner jibe against Rahul too has spread like wildfire on social media with ‘explainers’ by Left handles, on how Congress and UPA have deceived fish workers in policy matters. However, even political observers who are sympathetic to the Left do not dismiss Rahul’s pivotal role in Kerala politics.
A nation is balanced between its institutions. If the balance is disturbed, the nation is disturbed. That is the central idea….Over the last 6 years, there has been a systematic attack on elected institutions and the free press that hold the nation together. Democracy doesn’t die with a bang, it dies slowly. I am sad to tell you that democracy in Indis is dead, it does not exist. The concentration of capital has combined with the RSS to destroy the institutional balance in the country.
Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi today attacked the BJP government in Thoothukudi saying that there has been a systematic attack on elected institutions and free press in the last six years. ”India is entering a phase very much like the British era. We cannot rely on the institutions to protect our democracy anymore. We can only rely on the people of the country.” alleged Rahul Gandhi while interacting with lawyers at VOC College in Thoothukudi, Tamil Nadu. During the interaction, Rahul Gandhi termed the CAA discriminatory on many counts. He also said that Congress is opposed to farm laws and is fighting against them.
I know the amount of money that was thrown at MLAs in M.P., Rajasthan, we’re talking massive amounts of money. When you have a party that is fighting elections with thousands & thousands of crores & other parties are not allowed to raise finance. Now India is entering a phase quite like when we were fighting the British that we cannot rely on the institutions to protect our democracy anymore, we can only rely on the people of the country. We can keep doing reservations but unless Indian men start to view Indian women with the same lens that they view themselves, the real change is not going to happen.
Your former CM was an expert in lifting the slippers of his top party leaders – PM Modi’s Jibe on V Narayanasamy & Rahul Gandhi in Puducherry
These development works cover roads, healthcare, education, culture, sport and marine economy. What I am seeing here today — the energy and enthusiasm — is wonderful. It shows how the direction of the wind is changing in Puducherry. In 2016, Puducherry didn’t get a people’s govt. They got a govt that was busy serving the Congress high command in Delhi, their priorities were different. Your former CM was an expert in lifting the slippers of his top party leaders. The high command Congress government in Puducherry made it a point to damage every sector of governance. Traditional mills closed. Local industry was troubled. Congress doesn’t believe in working for the people.
CPI(M) alleged that Rahul Gandhi’s attack against Left was similar to that of the words being used by the BJP to flay the party
Kerala’s ruling CPI(M) on Wednesday accused former Congress president Rahul Gandhi of talking like “a recruitment agent of the BJP”, a day after the Congress leader lashed out at the state government over various issues including the gold smuggling case. In a statement, the CPI(M) state secretariat claimed Gandhi did not even make a weak criticism of the BJP in his speech at the Congress rally on Tuesday. “He spoke like a recruitment agent of the BJP. It was shocking,” the party said. The CPI(M) and Congress are allies in Bengal but clearly at each other’s throats in Kerala.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi turned seafarer and pulled the net with local fisherman in high sea here to get a taste of their life and understand the issues facing them. In an emotional talk with thousands of fisherfolk, including women gathered at the Thangassery beach in this southern coastal district, the Nehru scion said he admired and respected what the fishermen do. “I understand and respect what you do. I admire what you are doing. Many times, we eat the fish but we will not understand the hard work behind and how it reached our plate,” Gandhi said.
Congress now finding fault with Rahul Gandhi’s remarks on South Indians taking issues more seriously than those from North
Not just the BJP, but a section in the Congress are also now finding fault with Rahul Gandhi’s remarks on South Indians taking issues more seriously than those from the North, exposing a division in the party over the former party chief’s stand on issues. On a day Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala targeted the BJP for its criticism of Rahul on the issue, senior Congress leader Anand Sharma openly expressed his opposition to the remarks and said the party never “disrespected a region” and Rahul should clarify his statement to clear “conjecture or misunderstandings”.
Smriti Irani hit out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his remark at a rally in Kerala that has triggered a ‘north-south’ row
Union minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday hit out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his remark at a rally in Kerala that has triggered a ‘north-south’ row and has also drawn sharp responses from other Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders. “The spiteful and vengeful politics of Rahul Gandhi, which insults not only the people and voters of Amethi but seeks to create a divide between the north and south India, is to be condemned by every Indian citizen,” Irani told media.
Delhi High Court on Monday sought the response of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, her son Rahul and other accused in the National Herald case on a plea by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy seeking to lead evidence in the matter before the trial court. Justice Suresh Kait, while issuing notice to the Gandhis, AICC general secretary Oscar Fernandes, Suman Dubey, Sam Pitroda and Young India (YI), sought their stand on Swamy’s plea by April 12.
On a one-day visit to Puducherry, Gandhi interacted with the fishing community, followed by a meeting with students of Bharathidasan Government College for Women and wrapped it up with a public meeting. When a student asked Gandhi how he felt about the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) members who assassinated his father Rajiv Gandhi, he said that he didn’t harbour any anger against them although he was pained by the killing. “Of course, I lost my father and for me it was a difficult time. I felt tremendous pain. But I don’t feel angry. I don’t feel any hatred. I forgive,” Gandhi said.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will visit the poll-bound Puducherry on February 17. The former Congress president is likely to address public meetings while kick-starting the party’s campaign for the Union Territory, where Assembly polls are scheduled to be held in the next few months. Currently, Congress is heading the government in Puducherry under Chief Minister V Narayanasamy.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has accused the Modi government of insulting the sacrifice of jawans and letting go of India’s territory. In a tweet shared immediately after Defence Minister Rajnath Singh made a statement in Rajya Sabha over India-China border row in Ladakh, Rahul said, “No status quo ante = No peace & tranquility. Why is GOI insulting the sacrifice of our jawans & letting go of our territory?” Rahul has been leading the opposition’s sharp criticism of the Modi government over the standoff between the Indian and Chinese troops in eastern Ladakh.
There is no prestige issue. If he (Rahul Gandhi) has some solution to offer, he must come and discuss. The Congress has not been able to convince people over farm laws, hence it is confusing them. Congress party has every right to question the government’s policies, but “it should not play politics over issues concerning the common man and poor. The farm laws are not against the farmers. The Modi government wants to improve the condition of farmers and increase their earnings.
I want to ask both Shashi Tharoor and Rahul Gandhi to discuss any one specific issue – Union minister Smriti Irani
Union minister Smriti Irani on Tuesday said that nobody takes Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s comments seriously. Speaking on India TV’s special show Budget Sammelan 2021, Irani who emerged as a giant killer in Amethi when she defeated Rahul in the 2019 general elections said, “What Rahul Gandhi says should not be taken seriously.” Responding to Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s tweet, Irani asked, “I want to ask both Shashi Tharoor and Rahul Gandhi to discuss any one specific issue. The fact is that they don’t make any responsible comment ever.”
How much Rahul Gandhi knows about agriculture and farming is an open secret – Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad
How much Rahul Gandhi knows about agriculture and farming is an open secret. I invite him to speak in Parliament over the issue. Did Rahul Gandhi condemn Red Fort breach incident on January 26? The Tricolour was dishonoured, but the Congress leader was silent. For over 40 years, people of his family unfurled the national flag at Red Fort, but he didn’t utter a word over the incident. I should praise the Delhi Police and other security forces for the amount of restraint they showed. Policemen were attacked brutally, but they didn’t react.
Delhi Congress has passed a resolution to make Rahul Gandhi the president of the party with immediate effect. The resolution was passed unanimously in a meeting of the Delhi Congress office-bearers convened by Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) President Ch. Anil Kumar. “Ch Anil Kumar moved the resolutions, and one of the resolutions requested Rahul Gandhi to take over as the President of the Indian National Congress at the earliest. He said that considering the disturbed and dangerous political situation in the country, Congress needs a dynamic and powerful leader like Rahul Gandhi at the helm, to lead the party forcefully, to counter the communal, authoritarian, and undemocratic forces, trying to take the country on the path of destruction,” a Congress press communique read.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who has been supporting the farmers’ protest against the Centre’s farm laws, on Tuesday denounced the violence in Delhi by protestors. Gandhi, however, once again appealed that the agri laws should be taken back for country’s sake. “Violence is not the solution to any problem. Irrespective of who gets hurt, it is the country which will suffer. Take back the anti-agriculture law for the benefit of the country!” the former Congress president sain in his Hindi tweet.
If the Indian economy was strong, China would have never got the guts to step into India – Rahul Gandhi
Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi said the Chinese gathered guts to intrude into the Indian territory because of a weakening economy which was the result of flawed policies of ‘weak’ PM Modi. Rahul said BJP’s economic policies had “dealt a severe blow to farmers, weavers, labourers and MSMEs”, who are foundation of the country. “I can tell you without doubt if the Indian economy was strong, China would have never got the guts to step into India,” Rahul said.
Rahul Gandhi is doing politics only on the issue of farmers. The leaders of his party are also describing farmers as Khalistani. Political parties are doing politics with farmers in Mumbai.
Congress MP and former party President, Rahul Gandhi has attacked the central government on the matter of Coronavirus vaccine. In a tweet, Rahul asked the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, ‘what does he (PM) stand by?’. The tweet adds, earlier the Prime Minister had said that everyone will get the vaccine, BJP in the Bihar elections said that Bihar will get the free vaccine, and now the government of India is saying never said that everyone will get the vaccine.
When Rahul Gandhi presided over meetings regarding the Tamil Nadu and Assam elections on Monday, he made it clear at the outset that Congress president Sonia Gandhi had assigned him the task. He said he was there to listen to what the party functionaries had to say and convey that to Sonia Gandhi.
Farmers are protesting on the streets, and lies are being spoken on TV! We are all indebted to the hard work of farmers. This debt can only be repaid by ensuring rights and justice for them. We should not reject their demands by beating them with ‘lathis’ and firing tear gas on them. Wake up, and accord the farmers their rights.
It is a sad day. Shri Ahmed Patel was a pillar of the Congress party. He lived and breathed Congress and stood with the party through its most difficult times. He was a tremendous asset. We will miss him. My love and condolences to Faisal, Mumtaz & the family.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday posed four questions relating to potential coronavirus vaccines before Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Gandhi sought to know which COVID-19 vaccine will the government choose and why. He asked by when will all Indians be vaccinated.
Shri Tarun Gogoi was a true Congress leader. He devoted his life to bringing all the people and communities of Assam together. For me, he was a great and wise teacher. I loved and respected him deeply. I will miss him. My love and condolences to Gaurav & the family.
I am giving a clean chit to Gandhis due to COVID pandemic as they can’t do much right now. There is no change in our demands. They have agreed to most of our demands. Our leadership should hold elections if they want to become a national altenative and revive the party.
Rahul and Sonia Gandhi must explain to the nation the compulsions for stitching this alliance (Gupkar) – Anurag Thakur
In Congress, no one accepts Rahul Gandhi’s leadership. No one knows who can take decisions in Congress. Who knows whether Surjewala’s statement will be accepted? That’s why Rahul and Sonia Gandhi must explain to the nation the compulsions for stitching this alliance. The tie-up of Congress with the Gupkar gang raises a lot of questions. Is Congress’ ideology similar to that of the Gupkar gang? Or is Congress forced to ally with the Gupkar gang owing to its repeated electoral losses? Rahul and Sonia Gandhi should answer this question. When there is tension with China, what is the reason for Rahul Gandhi to bat for China?
Sonia chose Singh as PM since he was no threat to Rahul – Former US President Barack Obama in his biography
(Manmohan Singh) owed his position to Sonia Gandhi… More than one political observer believed that she’d chosen Singh precisely because as an elderly Sikh with no national political base, he posed no threat to her … son Rahul, whom she was grooming to take over the Congress party.
Do Sonia Ji and Rahul Ji support such moves of the Gupkar Gang? They should make their stand crystal clear to the people of India. They want to take away rights of Dalits, women and tribals that we have ensured by removing Article 370. This is why they’re being rejected by the people everywhere. Indian people will no longer tolerate an unholy ‘global gathbandhan’ against our national interests. Either the Gupkar Gang swims along with the national mood or else the people will sink it.
Politics is not someone who has priorities elsewhere. How can the party even stand a chance – Kushboo Sundar, BJP on Rahul Gandhi
Reacting to a video of RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari questioning Rahul Gandhi’s ‘picnic’ during the peak of the elections, Kushboo Sundar wrote that someone having priorities elsewhere was ‘politics’. The newly-inducted BJP leader also asked how could her former party even stand a chance.
When polls were in full swing here, Rahul Gandhi was having a picnic at Priyanka ji’s house in Shimla – Shivanand Tiwari, RJD Leader
When polls were in full swing here, Rahul Gandhi was having a picnic at (his sister and Congress general secretary) Priyanka ji’s house in Shimla. This shows how seriously he took the Bihar election which was being watched by the entire nation with a hope of emergence of a new political force in the opposition. Is this the way to run a party?
PM Narendra Modi is very senior to him (Rahul Gandhi) in age. But he had been addressing three to four meetings per day – Shivanand Tiwari, RJD Leader
Rahul Gandhi came for electioneering, but he campaigned only for three days in Bihar. He addressed only two election meetings per day (total six meetings in the state). PM Narendra Modi is very senior to him (Rahul) in age. But he had been addressing three to four meetings per day. Moreover, Rahul Gandhi left Bihar after campaigning for three days. He went to Shimla for a picnic at his sister’s house.
It’s sad to hear of the demise of Dadasaheb Phalke awardee Shri Soumitra Chatterjee, an actor par excellence who the nation has revered over the years. My heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and fans.
Rahul Gandhi is NPPP – Non-Performing Picnic-ing President. Now your allies are speaking against him. Rahul Gandhi, when you were with cycle (Akhilesh Yadav’s SP), it was punctured, when you came together with lantern (Tejashwi Yadav’s RJD), it was extinguished.
Mr. Barack Obama, I may suggest you to interact with our beloved leader Rahul Gandhi Ji on any relevant issues of the world – Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury
Mr. Barack Obama, I may suggest you to interact with our beloved leader Rahul Gandhi Ji on any relevant issues of the world either physically or virtually before hurling any churlish comments so that you would have the opportunity to realise the traits & attributes of a personality. Think twice before evaluating our leader otherwise you would have been landed up in the universe of ignorance, do not get confused by the artificial dazzling light and shed off the ‘frog in the well’ mentality.
I have always said Rahul Gandhi has limited knowledge, and he is tutored. He doesn’t do homework on his own and has no original thinking. Therefore, reflection of this does happen. However, it is for him and his party to assess but there has to be a national perspective.
Rahul Gandhi has a nervous, unformed quality about him – According to a book review by the New York Times, Obama has opined on the Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi
According to a book review by the New York Times, Obama has opined on the Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi stating, “Rahul Gandhi has a nervous, unformed quality about him, as if he were a student who’d done the coursework and was eager to impress the teacher but deep down lacked either the aptitude or the passion to master the subject”. He has also opined on Dr. Singh as ‘someone having a kind of impassive integrity’. Apart from these Indian politicians, Obama has reportedly described Russsian President Vladimir Putin reminding him of ‘the street-smart bosses who used to run Chicago at one point in time’.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi launched a blistering attack at the Modi government over demonetisation and alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “assault” on the Indian economy four years ago has finally destroyed it. He further claimed that Modi took the money from people of the country and gave it to his “crony capitalist friends”.
The government says that the reason is COVID but if that is the reason, there is COVID in Bangladesh and elsewhere in the world also. The reason is not COVID, the reason is ‘Notebandi’ and GST. Four years ago PM Modi began an assault on the Indian economy. He hurt farmers, labourers and small shopkeepers. Manmohan Singh ji said the economy will lose two per cent and that is what we saw. This was a lie. The attack was on you, Modi wanted to take your money and give it to his 2-3 crony capitalist friends. You stood in lines, not his crony capitalist friends. You put your money in banks and PM Modi gave that money to his friends and gave them a loan waiver of Rs 3,50,000 crore.
Outcome of the US elections proved that former Congress president Rahul Gandhi was right to advise PM Modi – Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot
Following Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s Electoral College win to become the President-elect of the US, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has taken this opportunity to take a swipe at the central government. A veteran Congress leader, Gehlot even targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Ashok Gehlot claimed that the outcome of the US elections proved that former Congress president Rahul Gandhi was right to advise PM Modi not to get involved in America’s domestic politics.
This is yet another instance of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi-directed antic – JP Nadda on Arnab Goswami’s arrest by Mumbai Police
Every person who believes in a free press and freedom of expression is furious at the Maharashtra Government’s bullying and harassment of Arnab Goswami. This is yet another instance of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi-directed antic of silencing those who disagree with them. Shameful!
In 2006, mandis were destroyed here (n Bihar) and it is being done now across the country – Rahul Gandhi
If the prime minister of India had any place for farmers and labourers in his heart, he would have died but not done what he did during the lockdown. Entire Bihar knows this. Not the smaller ones but the bigger ones — Ambani and Adani. In 2006, mandis were destroyed here and it is being done now across the country.
Whether it’s MVM or Modi ji ka Media (Modi ji’s media), I am not scared of them. Truth is truth, justice is justice. I am fighting a war of ideology against this man. We are fighting against their thoughts. We will defeat their thoughts.
Narendra Modi says unpleasant things about me in his meetings. However, much hatred they try to spread, I always try to spread love. Hatred cannot defeat hatred, only love can. I won’t budge an inch until I defeat Narendra Modi.
He (Rahul Gandhi) shouldn’t even be discussed given the kind of statements he makes. These allegations are totally baseless and lack substance. He should look at China’s history since 1962 till 2013. When the question is about India’s national interest and integrity, one should rise above politics.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi mocked Rashtriya Janata Dal’s Tejashwi Yadav and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi as “double Yuvraj” (two crown princes) while who stood for “jungle raj” and were pitted against the NDA’s “double engine” growth which has pulled the state out of lantern age. “One of the double yuvraj had forged an alliance in Uttar Pradesh a few years ago. He criss-crossed through the state wearing a black jacket, waving at crowds. The alliance was drubbed,” said PM Modi.
Addressing his election rally at Champaran, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said “When Prime Minister Narendra Modi came here last time he promised that a sugar factory will be set up here and he will have tea with you all. Do you remember? Did he have tea with you?”
Surprised to see Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s effigies getting burnt in Dussehra in Punjab – Rahul Gandhi
Addressing his election rally at Champaran, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said he was surprised to see Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s effigies getting burnt in Dussehra in Punjab. This is sad and should not happen as he is the prime minister of the country, but this how Punjab farmers feel about him, Rahul Gandhi added.
What Nitish Kumar did to Bihar in 2006, PM Modi is doing the same to Punjab and to the rest of the country – Rahul Gandhi
What Nitish Kumar did to Bihar in 2006, PM Modi is doing the same to Punjab and to the rest of the country. Nowadays, PM Modi does not talk about jobs. Because Bihar people won’t believe in his lies anymore. Congress has been in Centre for decades. We know how to rule. But of course, we have some shortcomings. We can’t lie through our teeth.
Why do Bihar people have to go to other states for jobs? Do our Bihar brothers and sisters lack in anything? No, your CM and PM lack. Noteban and lockdown followed similar trends. PM Modi announced both at the last moment. Middle class and lower middle class people suffered the most, while the industrialists were cushioned.
We gave MNREGA, waived off farmers’ loans. We know how to run the country, stand with farmers and generate employment, but yes, we do lack one thing – we don’t know how to lie. We cannot compete with him (PM) at lying.
The Rahul Gandhi-directed drama of burning PM’s effigy in Punjab is shameful but not unexpected. After all, the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty has NEVER respected the office of the PM. This was seen in the institutional weakening of the PM’s authority during the UPA years of 2004-2014.
Unlike in UP, the governments of Punjab and Rajasthan are NOT denying that the girl was raped – Rahul Gandhi
“Unlike in UP, the governments of Punjab and Rajasthan are NOT denying that the girl was raped, threatening her family and blocking the course of justice,” tweeted Rahul Gandhi. He further said if these two governments end up doing the same, he will go there to “fight for justice”.
“Deep inside, Mr Bhagwat knows the truth. He is just scared to face it. The truth is China has taken our land and GOI & RSS have allowed it,” Congress’s Rahul Gandhi tweeted, slamming the RSS which is the ideological mentor of the BJP.
Neither Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi nor Priyanka Gandhi visited the family of the victim in Tanda (Punjab)
Neither Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi nor Priyanka Gandhi visited the family of the victim in Tanda. They do not pay heed to the injustice done to women in the states ruled by their party, but visit Hathras and other places for photo-op with the victim’s family.
Not a word from the tweet-friendly leader Shri Rahul Gandhi. No tweets on this, no outrage on this, and no picnic on this. A woman heads the party. Does this kind of selective outrage suits the stature of their party. No rape should be politicised. But because we want our political games to be played, we are selective about voicing horror when it is in some states & remain in absolute silence when it is in states governed by Congress party.
Rahul Gandhi should visit Tanda (Punjab) and Rajasthan to take cognisance of incidents of crime against women – Union Minister Prakash Javadekar
The incident of rape and murder of 6-yr-old Dalit girl from Bihar, in Hoshiarpur’s Tanda village is very shocking. We demand strict action against culprits. Instead of going on political tours, Rahul Gandhi should visit Tanda (Punjab) and Rajasthan to take cognisance of incidents of crime against women.
The campaigning for the first phase of Bihar Assembly election is in the last week. On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will address multiple rallies to garner the public support. As per the schedule announced by the BJP, PM Modi will address the first rally in Sasaram.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will address multiple rallies in Bihar on Friday. As per the schedule, Rahul will address rallies in Nawada’s Hisua, and Kahalgaon in Bhagalpur. He will be joined by RJD and grand alliance chief ministerial face Tejashwi Yadav at Hisua.
Don’t lie to Biharis, Modi Ji. Did you give jobs to Biharis? Last elections, PM promised 2 crores jobs, no one got them. In public,he says I bow my head to Army, farmers, labourers & traders. But once he reaches home, he only works for Ambani & Adani.
