SP-Congress alliance dedicated to youths and farmers: Rahul Gandhi
Shamli: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has said the alliance between the Congress and Samajwadi Party has been dedicated to the cause of youths and farmers.
"The alliance is a mirror where the youths can see their golden future and the farmers can reap rich dividends of their produce," he said, while addressing an election meeting at DAV college ground here. He was there to address rally in the favour of alliance candidate Pankaj Mallick, a candidate from Shamli which is going to polls on February 11 in the first phase of Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.
Rahul Gandhi said that the first and foremost objective of this alliance would be to ensure employment to the youths of UP which had been an ignored lot. Similarly, the UP which has huge potential of export would be developed into a Food Capital' of the country.
Launching yet another scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the senior Congress leader said what happened to BJP's promise to provide employment to two crore youths of the country. "No one except the 50 few of the country like Ambanis are being benefited by Modi,'' he said, elaborating, "Over 1.1 lakh crore of loans were disbursed by Modi government to these business houses at the cost of common man."
Coming down heavily on the demonetisation move of the Centre, the scion of Gandhi family said it has been ridiculous on the part of Modi that against the circulated curency of 14.50 lakh crore, almost all came back to banking system. ''Where is the black money,'' he said asking the PM.
