PM Modi trying to do ‘match-fixing’ in LS polls: Rahul

New Delhi, Mar 31 (UNI) Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday attacked the BJP government and said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was trying to do ‘match-fixing’ in the upcoming Lok Sabha election so that he can change the Constitution of the country and finish the democracy.

He urged the people to vote in full force to INDIA alliance so that the BJP’s ‘match-fixing’ fails and the Constitution of the country and democracy is saved.

Addressing the ‘Loktantra Bachao’ rally organised by the INDIA alliance at the Ramlila Maidan here, Gandhi said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to win the Lok Sabha election by buying the players, threatening the captains, putting pressure on the umpires, buying the media and raising the slogan of 400 paar on the basis of EVM. This is called match-fixing. But the reality is he is not in a position to cross 180 seats even after putting everything together”.

He alleged that the Match-fixing was not done just by Narendra Modi but he has the support of two or three billionaires. He wants to change the Constitution by winning elections through match-fixing.

“This match-fixing of election is to snatch the rights of the poor. The day the Constitution is snatched, India will be finished. The country will disintegrate and this is their target,” Rahul alleged.

Accusing the government of using central agencies against its opponents, the Wayanad MP said, “They are using police, ED, CBI and IT to run the country. Two of our players have been put in jail. You can buy the media but you cannot silence the voice of people of the country. There is no one who can silence their voice”.

The former Congress President said that this was not an ordinary election but ‘an election to save democracy and the Constitution of the country’.

He also slammed the government over the Income Tax issue and said that Congress though being the biggest Opposition party, all its bank accounts have been frozen just ahead of the election. “We don’t have money to run the campaign, to give to our candidates, put up posters. What kind of election is this”.

He also attacked the government over issues pertaining to unemployment, farmers, poor, caste census and women.

Leaders who participated at the rally were Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, NCP (SCP) chief Sharad Pawar, Shiv Sena (UBT)’s Uddhav Thackeray, SP president Akhilesh Yadav, TMC’s Derek O’ Brien, Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann, Jharkhand CM Champai Soren, Kalpana Soren, Sunita Kejriwal, CPI(M)’s Sitaram Yechury, PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti, CPI’s D Raja, JKNC’s Farooq Abdullah, DMK’s Tiruchi Siva, among others.
