PM Modi only practices politics of hatred: alleges Rahul

Ludhiana, May 29 (UNI) Just days left for the final phase of voting to the Lok Sabha election, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and alleged that he practices politics of hatred and making people fight among themselves.

Addressing a huge rally here, the former Congress president said, “During the last ten years, Modi has done nothing for the people except for making them fight among themselves on the basis of religion, language and region”.

Gandhi also slammed the BJP for openly telling that it will scrap the Constitution when it again comes to power.

He said, “For the first time in 70 years, a party has dared to change the Constitution. Several of BJP leaders have openly said that when they will come to power, they will change the Constitution”.

The Senior Congress leader said that the Constitution was framed by Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Ambedkar and several great leaders and Congress will not allow anybody to change it as the Constitution is not just a book but is the voice of crores of people of the country and has also given them their rights.

He therefore appealed to the people of Punjab to vote for the Congress so that the Constitution and the rights of the people are protected.

Rahul alleged that despite being the Prime Minister of the country, Modi only worked for 22 rich industrialists. “He had waived off loans worth Rs 16 lakh crores of his billionaire friends, while the poor farmers in debt were left alone to die”.

He said that on June 4, NDA will be out and INDIA bloc will form the government. The first decision would be to ‘throw the Agniveer scheme into the dustbin’.

Calling the Agniveer scheme as an ‘insult to the defence force’, Gandhi said the country cannot have two types of schemes one for poor with no benefits and another for rich with all basic benefits.

Talking about his party’s ambitious Mahalakshmi Scheme, the Wayanad MP said on July 5, the INDI alliance government will transfer Rs 8,500 directly into the account of poor women and this will go on every month.

He said all promises that had been mentioned in the manifesto would be fulfilled including filling up of 30 lakh government posts lying vacant, doubling the daily wage of MNREGA workers, Asha and Anganwadi workers.

He also showed grave concern over drug menace in Punjab and said that the issue would be dealt with strictly.

The former Congress President also urged the people to vote and make the Ludhiana candidate Amarinder Singh Warring victorious with huge margin.

Earlier, Rahul Gandhi paid tribute to famous singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moosewala.
