What Rahul had said last week :
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi during his day long visit on January 23 last, had come down heavily on Modi government saying it failed to pass on the benefit of falling oil prices in international market to the people of India.
“The government is busy enriching its coffers with no heart for the public at large which could have been the major beneficiary,’ he said while speaking to villagers at Supa village in this backward district of Bundelkhand in Uttar Pradesh.
Lambasting the central government, Rahul had said it was a misleading statement from those in the power that this government belonged to poor and needy while the case was just the opposite.
