‘Anti-poor’ Modi only has slogans, doesn’t have time for downtrodden: Rahul Gandhi


Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday launched stinging attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi government calling it ‘anti-poor’ which he alleged had failed to fulfill the promises it made to the nation.

He said that the Prime Minister was more concerned about the business class and now bothered about the downtrodden.

“Narendra Modi keeps making big statements and slogans like ‘Make in India’, ‘Connect India’, ‘Clean India’ etc. Every tenth day, he comes up with big slogans. But you will never see his photograph with the poor people of this country. You will never see him meeting the poor and downtrodden,” Rahul was quoted by news agency ANI.

The Congress vice-president was addressing his party workers at Gohpur in Assam’s Sonitpur district.

Gandhi said that Modi had failed to fulfill the promises made to the nation during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

He said, “Modi ji doesn’t care about the poor and downtrodden. He only cares about some selected businessmen. He keeps on talking about the future and doesn’t speak about the present. Today, there is inflation in the country and what he talks about is making promises which he would be doing in the future.”

The Congress vice-president, who arrived in Assam Monday on a two day visit, also alleged that Prime Minister Modi only helped the businessmen and not the poor.

“He never fulfils his promises. You will never see a picture of him with farmers, holding hands of laborers. The BJP always make an Indian fight with another Indian,” he said.
