Gandhi also pointed out that the Prime Minister chose to remain silent on the case of judge BH Loya and agrarian distress.
He also took potshots at the recent China visit of the Prime Minister Modi and said, “Modi ji did not speak a single word on Doklam during his visit to China. What kind of Prime Minister is he??”.
The JanAakrosh rally is organized in Ramlila Maidan.
He said that the Prime Minister Modi gave unemployment, ‘Gabbar Singh Tax’ (the term the Congress coined for the Goods and Services Tax to target the government), BJP MLA inflicted atrocities on women (Unnao rape case) in his tenure.
The Congress chief claimed the Congress united all sections of society and said that under the BJP, there have allegedly been attacks on Dalits and minorities.
He also highlighted how farmers were under stress but their loans were not written off by the government.
Instead, he added, the loans of the corporate houses were waived.
Gandhi expressed confidence that his party will emerge victorious in Karnataka, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh assembly polls and defeat the BJP in the 2019 general polls.>
