PM Modi and Rahul Gandhi (PC: Social Media)
NEW DELHI: Voting for the first phase is going on in Bihar today. Meanwhile, Congress MP and former President Rahul Gandhi is campaigning. Rahul has two rallies in the state today. The first rally is being held in West Champaran.
Rahul Gandhi slams Modi Govt:
Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said that the Prime Minister had come here a few years ago and said that he will start a sugar mill, sugar mill and next time I will drink sugar mixed with tea here. Did they drink tea with you?
Raising the issue of agricultural laws, Rahul said that the effigy of Ravana is usually burnt on Dussehra but this time in Punjab, the effigies of Prime Minister and Adani were burnt. This time in Punjab, effigies of Narendra Modi, Ambani and Adani were burnt on Dussehra, not Ravana. He said that this is sad but the farmers are upset so this is happening.
On the issue of employment, Rahul Gandhi said that the purpose of demonetisation and lockout was the same. Its purpose was to destroy small farmers, small businesses, traders and laborers. People of Bihar get employment in Delhi, Haryana, Punjab and Bangalore but not in Bihar. The reason for this is the lack of Nitish Kumar and Narendra Modi. Prime Minister Modi talks about other countries but does not talk about problems like unemployment of his country.
No arrangement for workers in Lockdown:
Raising the issue of the workers who returned to Bihar during the lockdown, Rahul said that the Prime Minister did not make any arrangements for the workers. The workers were driven away on foot. I met the workers, they said that if we had given us some time, we would have gone home.
