Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi kept up his attack on the BJP, saying the Modi government’s claims of development were a “dream” running on television only.
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who is continuing his Navsarjan Yatra in poll-bound Gujarat on Wednesday, held a meeting with tribal students at Darbar Hall in Chhota Udaipur district on the 3rd day of his visit.
During the meeting, Gandhi pointed fingers at the state government for not providing enough funds for education in the state and not providing a secure future to the students. “Congress is coming to Gujarat to change what is wrong. We will restore your parents’ honour,” Gandhi said.
Gandhi questioned the government’s claims of progress. The area lacked basic infrastructure, women felt unsafe, there were not enough teachers in schools, he said.
The home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP chief, Gujarat is expected to hold assembly elections in December.
Gandhi left the stage and walked around the hall packed with students and encouraged them to ask questions.
“You tell me your mann ki baat. This platform will help to take up the matter with the government,” Gandhi said, taking a veiled dig at PM’s monthly radio address, Mann ki Baat.
The Congress is looking to deflate the “Gujarat model of progress”, which the BJP showcased in the run-up to 2014 national election that saw chief minister Modi become PM Modi.
The huge youth crowds Gandhi getting all the way in Gujarat causing worries for BJP.
