BJP anti-people: Congress leader

Una / Shimla (HP), May 26 (UNI) Claiming that BJP is anti-people and wants to change the Constitution, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday exhorted people to vote for the party to save the Constitution.

Addressing an election rally in support of party’s Lok Sabha candidate Sat Pal Raizada and Assembly candidates Rakesh Kalia, Subhash Dhatwalia, Captain Ranjit Singh Rana and Vivek Sharma, he said that if BJP was allowed to rule once again, it would change the Constitution and further waive loans of rich people like Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani.

He alleged that during last year’s huge devastation due to heavy rains, the central government turned a Nelson’s eye towards situation and allowed people to suffer by making false claims that it had provided sufficient help to people of HP.

The Prime Minister did not care about them, but instead made 22 families billionaires, he claimed and demanded to know the reason why BJP leaders were not releasing any white paper on relief amount it had given to the state.

The Congress leader said that the party workers were like ‘Babber sher’ (lions) and they would overturn BJP’s applecart this time to form a stable government of the Congress party at the Centre.

Taking a potshot at the Prime Minister, he said that while Modi has created 22 billionaires, they would create crores of millionaires.

“A list of all poor people of the country will be made. The name of a woman from each family will be selected and on July five, crores of women will get Rs 8,500 in their bank accounts. This amount will be deposited in the women’s account every month,” he said.

Gandhi further said that he will make a law on MSP (minimum support price) for farmers of India and will also waive off loans of farmers, he promised.

Today, apple growers in Himachal are disappointed because they have not been able to get good prices for apples due to Modi’s shelter to families like Ambani-Adani, he claimed.

The weapons and armaments which were earlier made by Indian Ordnance Factory will now be made by Adani, he said and noted that similarly, seven airports in the country have been leased to private companies like Adani for 50 years.

Making an appeal to people to save the Constitution, Rahul Gandhi asserted that the Congress party workers will not let BJP to fulfil its dream of changing the Constitution.

He gave an assurance to discontinue the Agniveer scheme if INDIA bloc comes to power.

Criticising Modi, he said that 700 farmers lost their lives while fighting against black laws but they were not given the status of martyrs.

Talking about the Electoral Bond Scheme, he blamed Modi for having brought electoral bond scheme and called him epicentre of corruption.

He further attacked the Prime Minister for his threat of bringing down the Himachal government by whatever means.

He said that “stolen governments were formed in Goa, Arunachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, now the Prime Minister is coming to Himachal and saying that he will steal the government here also.”

Noting that all corrupt people have joined BJP, Rahul Gandhi said that the situation is such that in Punjab and Maharashtra, they are robots running away from farmers, he added.
